Wedding Giveaway!

A Whimsical Day for Amy and Lindsay
What a Dream Come True!

Month: October
Photo and Video: DeGroot Film Co.
Wedding Planning: Weddings With a Twist, LLC
Flowers: Bank of Flowers
Dress Designer: Stella York
Bartending: Drink Inc

This may have happened back in October, but it's still on our minds as one of the most amazing experiences for Bank of Flowers to have been a part of! 

Katie Guth of DeGroot Film Co is the one who recruited us as well as many other talented wedding professionals to give away a wedding for FREE to a couple in need. We couldn't say no! The contest was set up in May and the wedding date was chosen for October 23rd, so it was a limited timeline, but well worth it!

Many couples submitted their stories of why they should be chosen, but in the end, Amy and Lindsay were the lucky couple and they couldn't have been happier! Amy and Lindsay have two foster children as well as a child of her own. Lindsay had lost both her jobs while taking care of Amy, who had a rare brain disease and had fourteen surgeries within one year. The military tried medically discharging Amy on four different occasions, but she refused. She was able to reenlist for another six years.

The happy couple chose to use orange and purple flowers to make their special day really pop! They were both so grateful to have won this giveaway and share their love with their friends and family. Together, all vendors were able to provide a wedding valued at over $24,000! We couldn't be happier for Amy and Lindsay and wish them all the best.

Roof Top Proposal

Top of the World!
Cait and Dave = Match Made in Heaven

Month: November
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Wedding Planner: Weddings With a Twist
Photographer: The Keel Collective
Location: The View at Evolution

This styled proposal is a dream come true! We were so thrilled to have been apart of this gorgeous shoot, breathtakingly captured by The Keel Collective.

The location for the proposal was perfect! The View at Evolution was a stunning backdrop for Cait and Dave's proposal. The 'view' of Milwaukee brought a chic twist to the romantic occasion. It was also surprising warm despite being November!

For the flowers, we stuck to gorgeous whites, nudes, and a few simple greens for the surprise proposal. These elegant arrangements tied the scene together for Cait and Dave.

Once the engagement went underway, the newly engaged couple not only shared a lovely evening with jaw dropping views, they also had two tickets to see a Broadway show! We couldn't be happier for them and all from Bank of Flowers wish them the best.
