The Bog Wedding

Danielle & Brian = Meant to Be!
A Gorgeous October Wedding

Photographer - Lanari Photography
Florist - Bank of Flowers
Reception - The Bog

A little throwback to the stunning wedding of Danielle and Brian, who tied the knot on October 14th.

The couple chose a beautiful arrangement of flowers for their wedding day. Danielle's bouquet was a textured handheld with stems including ivory roses, white hydrangea, burgundy hypericum berries, only one yellow rose, yellow spray roses, yellow solidago, and a mix of greens. The one yellow rose was to commemorate her father, and she brought in his ring to add to the bouquet as well. Brian's boutonniere included two ivory spray roses with mixed greens and burgundy hypericum berries.

Danielle and Brian's ceremony was held at their church, St. Mary's, where they exchanged their "I dos" in the company of many close friends and family. Their day continued on to the reception, which was held at The Bog, with the tables (and cake!) accented with flowers. They danced the night away, surrounded with so much love and laughter.

We were so thrilled to have been part of Danielle and Brian's special day! Congrats to the happy couple, here's to many years of happiness and memories!

Hipster Chic Wedding Photoshoot

Hipster Chic Wedding Photo Shoot
Can You Say Wow?!

Featured On: Premier Bride
Venue: Ramhorn Farm
Coordinator: Timeless Events
Invitations: Coqui Paperie & Gifts
Signage: Chalk'd MKE
Favors/Gourmet Popcorn: Pop'n Spot Gourmet Popcorn 

This photo shoot was one of our favorites!

We chose plum and burgundy to bring richness and honey to bring warmth to the scene as well as touches of wheat and feathers to capture the natural outdoor look. The flowers were wild and loose, with large centerpieces as well as flowers present throughout the venue - on the fountain as well as in a pattern on the grass to tie the hipster chic feel together throughout. 

We were so happy to have taken part of this shoot. All the vendors collaborated perfectly to get the hipster chic vibes we were all aiming for! Scroll down and take a look!

Cancer Awareness Bridal Shoot

Cancer Awareness Bridal Shoot
Heather, A Warrior.

Florist - Bank of Flowers

Heather is battling a relapse of a rare form of bone cancer called High Grade Ewing's Sarcoma. Her support system and source of strength is her family - her husband Gregory and their two little girls, Stella and Ivie Mira (short for Miracle).

Every two weeks Heather goes in for treatment for five days in a row, which takes a toll on her body. The doctors have given her a 20-30% chance of survival, but she is fighting 100% for every chance of remission. Heather's reason? "I do this all for my girls- they need a mother. Without this treatment my chances of survival would be much smaller."

Linked above is her Go Fund Me page - your contribution will help with her travel expenses to the clinic as well as everyday needs for her family. With the holiday season upon us. let's extend our love and compassion to those in need.

Everyone at Bank of Flowers as well as Heather appreciate your support.

Schlitz Audubon Wedding

Sara + Matt = Meant to Be!
A Stunning September Wedding

Photography: Valo Photography
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Ceremony/Reception: Schlitz Audubon Nature Center

Who doesn't love a stunning Fall wedding? Sara and Matt's wedding is a picture perfect example!

The couple chose gorgeous flowers that screamed fall! Sara's bouquet was a handheld with long stems and some texture including sunflowers, dahlia, antique hydrangea, seeded euc, wheat, and other mixed greens in red, yellow, and green accent. The bridesmaids had similar bouquets with handles wrapped in black. The groom and groomsmen had boutonnieres of a burgundy flat mum with solidago, wheat, and greens!

Sara and Matt's wedding took place at the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center, with the ceremony held outside and the reception inside. This venue was perfect for jaw dropping backdrops for all the beautifully captured photos taken by Valo Photography, as well give off the early Fall vibes the couple was aiming for!

Overall, Sara and Matt's wedding was full of love, laughter, and happiness. We are so thankful to have been part of their special day!
