The Club at Strawberry Creek, Part 2

Lauren + Dan = Gorgeous Wedding

Ceremony & Reception: The Club at Strawberry Creek, Kenosha, WI
Photographer: Nikki Winter Photography
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Month: April

One of my favorite things on the whole wide world is the moment I get the photos back from a wedding we recently have done.  Just this week I opened my email to find a sweet little message from my dear friend and talented photographer Nikki Winter.  As the florist, so many times we rush to make sure all the last little details of the decor is just perfect, we miss some of the special moments.  The photographer captures every last little detail from the private moments the bride puts on her dress to the exciting wee hours of the night of the party.  As I look through these photos, I feel I was a part of this special day!  Thank you Nikki for taking such amazing shots of our work and capturing all the details.

Tiffany & Pearls at Oconomowoc Lake Club

Florist: Bank of Memories & Flowers, Pewaukee
Month: June

From the beginning I knew I would enjoy working with Carly, Mitch and their families.  They were such a tight knit group, you could really feel the love they shared.

Carly had definite ideas for her wedding, from the colors and flowers, to the Tiffany boxes and pearl necklaces.  She loved a particular bouquet that we designed for the Wonderful World of Weddings bridal show in January.  We were able to recreate it down to the pearl brooch.

Carly's bridesmaids carried cream and coral bouquets of hydrangeas and roses that just popped against the Tiffany Blue gowns they wore.  The gentlemen wore a matching rose boutonniere.

The ceremony, and later dancing, took place in the Upper level Ballroom at Oconomowoc Lake Club, with its beautiful views of Oconomowoc Lake.  The reception was held in the Commodore Room, where each table was set with a Tiffany Blue box filled with hydrangeas, roses, hypericum berries, and strings of pearls.   The "topper" of the day was the yummy chocolate ganache wedding cake topped with coral roses and white hydrangea.

We wish Carly and Mitch continued joy and happiness.

Lush Summer Designs

It's halfway through the summer and here at Bank of Memories & Flowers, we've been busy designing and delivering the best and most beautiful blooms in town!!  We see a lot of our customers gravitating towards sunflowers, brightly colored gerbera daisies, and green hydrangeas.  

Summer is all about bright pops of color and these arrangements deliver just that. I love designs that feel like they are straight from the garden. Think dramatic and versatile, the fresh picked look is very popular and some of my personal favorites include green ball dianthus, fuchsia zinnias and orange cabbage roses. 

Compact arrangements seem to be the most popular style that we see at the shop, and they are so much fun to design.  When ordering, we love it when you leave the design up to us.  These types of unique arrangements seem to turn out the best.  This way we can work with some fun color combinations and different foliage, some that we can even submerge into the vases for a different design. 

I hope that you enjoy some of my personal favorite designs.  Wishing everyone a safe and fun summer!
