Wendy & Carl

Ceremony Location:  Bride's Home, Waukesha
Reception: Artisan 179, Pewaukee
Month: September

Wendy contacted Bank of Memories- Pewaukee by email and attached pictures of everything she had chosen for her wedding, including the centerpieces she created herself.  She needed us to design the bouquets for her and her attendants.
The bride wore a gorgeous full length lacy wedding dress in antique white and she chose to carry white hydrangeas, mini lime green hydrangeas, lime green and lavender roses, burgundy snapdragons and white waxflower.  

Her attendants, her daughter and granddaughters, each wore a dark wine dress with lace overlay.Their bouquets were smaller versions of the brides bouquet but without the white hydrangeas.  We created a white waxflower comb for her youngest granddaughter hair.

The bride and her daughter wanted to create the gentlemens boutonnieres, so we supplied the flowers and the tools.  What a great way to share the experience with your family!

Thank you and best wishes to Wendy and Carl from everyone here at Bank of Memories & Flowers!

End of Summer Events

How it is September already?  Where does time go in the summer??  Oh that's right...weddings and special events!!  At Bank of Memories & Flowers, we work hard, but have a lot of fun helping our clients plan parties and events.  It is something that we love and we can definitely get carried away!

For this baby shower, the theme colors were limes and different shades of pink.  Plum dendrobium orchids, lime hydrangeas, and fuchsia roses really made these designs pop!

What an amazing way to welcome the newest member of the family!

Danielle's wedding celebration was in a beautiful white tent set up in her parents picturesque backyard.  The perfect setting for an outdoor party!

Feminine and classic, her arrangements had an abundance of crisp white hydrangeas and miniature garden roses.  They looked like they were just picked from the garden.  The white hydrangeas contrasted nicely with the long grey wooden box she rented from us.

Here's to a Happy End-of-Summer!

Bishops Bay Wedding

Bishops Bay Wedding, Madison, WI

Month: July
Ceremony and Reception: Bishops Bay Country Club
Flowers: Bank of Memories & Flowers

When family friends Kristin and Aaron asked us to travel to Madison to do their wedding flowers, we were over-the-moon honored!  The happy couple chose to have their ceremony and reception in the historical manor at Bishops Bay Country Club in Middleton, WI.

The ceremony site was nestled under hundred-year-old oak trees and breathtaking views of our state capital over Lake Mendota.  Aaron's father re-purposed old barn beams to create an arch to frame the ceremony site.  The beams were covered with hydrangeas, lilies, stock, roses, delphinium, curly willow, and peonies!  The bride's aisle was scrolled with fresh white rose petals, and floral bouquets lined the chairs.

After the ceremony, guests walked across the lawn along a pathway lined with hanging glass bottles filled with candles and hydrangeas in Kristin's signature wedding color of teal. The cocktail space featured stunning views of Madison.  Guests found their name beautifully painted on old window panels for what table they would sit at.

The centerpieces were mounds of garden flowers designed in shabby chic wooden boxes that filled the tent with the fragrance of roses and peonies.  The 3-tier cake was a stunning focal, which sat over a floating bed of flower blossoms!

Thank you to Aaron and Kristin for letting us be a part of their wedding day and creating memories for us to share in the future.
