this week was full of the unusual for me, corporate work. Mountain America Credit Union is having a grand opening at a new branch in murray this week, they rented our gold tree and ordered several fresh arrangements for the new branch. i like corporate work, usually it allows me great artistic freedom with in a budget and also is lower pressure than a wedding, not to say i dont love working in the wedding industry, i do!

next week is wedding week with 3 events through out the week, and also i have many many good pics from recent weddings that we have not posted on yet ... so keep coming.

this was my alarm clock this morning, mariels clean and simple renoir mini calla bouquet and boutoniere ... best of luck guys! just remember to put the toilet seat down!

Later in the morning this creation came out of me. its for Kara & prestons wedding and ultimately might file into one of my favorites. love the V lily grass wrap. the rest of the bouquet consists of 3 different colors of mini callas, green hydrangea in the place of blossomed viburnum, green hyp berries, orange parrot tulips, tiny closed green parrot tulips, fugi mums, sea foam statice, and of course the gem centered stephanotis.

megan @ sun river gardens

Megan Blood's wedding was this last weekend and her colors where very obviously PURPLE, orange, and white. purple flowers used: mini callas, delphiniums, cornflowers, & anemone. White flowers used: freesia, lisianthus, and dendro orchids. Orange flowers used: ranuculus & fiction colored roses.

the bouquet: fictions roses, renoir mini callas, purple delphiniums, white lisianthus, white freesia, and orange ranucs. wrapped in royal purple swiss satin and some orange bling bling.

the reception was held in orem utah at sun river gardens nursery. not many people know that this is an option but it works out beautifully and you and your guests are surrounded by plush vegetation. we used 3 different designs for vases that megan provided for 12 tables. 1. a dendro/calla 2. delphinium/lisianthus 3. freesia/cornflower - a substitute for the purple ranucs that didnt make it in

below is a pic of the bridesmaids small clutches wrapped in orange satin ribbon. all white lisianthus and freesia with a few blue/purple anemone's for added measure. i wish i had gotten a few more pics of the bridal party flowers they turned out quiet well.
