Thornewood Castle Storybook Wedding

Nehimias & Vanessa had a little bit of “floral designer drama” before coming to me. They were having nightmares about a scatterbrained, flighty florist showing up late, or bringing the wrong arrangements. So for them, it was of utmost importance that they find a 100% dependable, reliable floral designer. So they could relax and enjoy…

Hollywood Schoolhouse Wedding

Loved using all these gorgeous, fragrant garden roses at Victoria & David’s Hollywood Schoolhouse Wedding. The old fashioned garden roses meshed perfectly with the vintage charm of this beautiful, historic Woodinville wedding venue. The floral cuffs & matching floral rings were a huge hit with all her female family members! It’s always such a pleasure to…

Taylor & Jeremy’s Wedding at Laurel Creek Manor

Not a dry eye in the house – that’s how I would describe Jeremy & Taylor’s romantic wedding at Laurel Creek Manor. Their wedding ceremony was heartfelt, touching, at times funny, and overall very moving. Their fun & quirky decor reflected their personalities, with rustic romantic vintage signs, succulents everywhere, wild & unstructured floral designs,…

Glam Wedding at Monte Cristo Ballroom

Bohemian Beauty at Thornewood Castle

Victoria wanted her bouquet to be BIG and wild – a statement piece. Her wild garden style bouquet became the centerpiece – all of her flowers coordinated. There was an untamed, asymmetrical arch arrangement for Thornewood’s Secret Garden arch, the centerpieces with dangling grapes & pomegranites, the free spirited bridesmaid bouquets. And Thornewood Castle was…

Jenn and Damon at Laurel Creek Manor

One of my favorite flowers to grow in the POSH cutting garden is the Café Aut Lait Dahlia – and I have sweet Jenn to thank for this! You see, Jenn’s favorite flower was the Café Aut Lait Dahlia – she was obsessed with them and wanted them everywhere at her Laurel Creek Manor wedding.…

Christy & Jerry at Thornewood Castle

“The flowers make the wedding” she said… “Without fabulous flowers, it’s just another party.” “It’s the flowers that set it apart as a special, magical day.” I couldn’t have said it better myself. And as soon as I sat down with Christy & Jerry I knew we were a perfect fit. She ADORES flowers. He is…

Charity & Paul at Laurel Creek Manor

Jennifer & Edison at Pan Pacific Hotel

It was a tense moment. Would it live up to her dream wedding? The towering ceremony arrangements were in place, complete with sparkling crystals. The fragrant roses had all been coaxed to open at exactly the right time. The hydrangeas were at their fluffiest & most romantic stage, just at the peak of perfection. But…

Emily & Brian at The Kelley Farm

Emily was all about the peonies. And the details. And it was FABULOUS. But understand this. When you tell your florist that you’ve always dreamed of having peonies for your bridal bouquet, and you are getting married at the end of July, you are dooming her to numerous sleepless nights. (“Will the weather cooperate?” “If…

Taylor and Gregory at Washington Athletic Club

She walked into the ceremony space and burst into tears. “Oh, it’s just how we dreamed.” (click-click – Another mental snapshot I will cherish) I will never forget the look on Leona’s face at that moment – the “big reveal”. All the hours and hours of worrying and planning and stress and struggle had paid…

Kelsey and Justin at Sodo Park Herban Feast

“Maureen, my flowers were the most beautiful wedding flowers I have EVER seen. I want to cry just thinking about them. It was everything I ever dreamed. Thank you sooo much.” Kelsey & Justin married at Sodo Park, and their talented photographer Laura Marchbanks took some of my favorite wedding photos of all time. Kelsey…

Hollywood Schoolhouse Wedding Photos: Ashley & Andrew

I haven’t yet seen the pro wedding photos from Ashley & Andrew’s Hollywood Schoolhouse Wedding – but I can’t wait!! Here are my flower photos – it was a beautiful wedding with tall centerpieces. I loved how the dangling crystals tied in with the Hollywood Schoolhouse’s gorgeous crystal chandeliers, giving this wedding lots of sparkle!

Garden Roses & Orchids at Rock Creek Gardens

Jon & Hannah at Thornewood Castle

So I admit it. I have a problem. A peony problem. I’m obsessed with them. When peony season is over I grieve. And do my best to get them from Alaska, Chile, New Zealand, Australia or wherever possible. So when Hannah said her favorite flower was the peony, and she was getting married in May,…

Cheryl & Steve at Tibbetts Creek Manor in Issaquah

Catie & Jesse at Thomas Family Farm in Snohomish

Sarah and Mapp at Monte Cristo Ballroom

  She walked into the ceremony space with her mother and gasped. And I overheard: “OH. MY. GOSH.” And then silence. I was freaking out – is that a GOOD ohmygosh, or a BAD ohmygosh? Then: “THAT is the most BEAUTIFUL THING I have EVER SEEN.” (click-click – Another mental snapshot I will treasure) Relief.…

Nerys and Nathan at Laurel Creek Manor

It was only about five minutes into our consultation meeting that I realized Nerys was a perfect fit for Vintage Ambience – I was shocked they hadn’t met. Nerys was showing me inspiration photos of romantic old-fashioned garden roses, antique dressers, sparkling crystal chandeliers vintage desks and lots of other treasures. She lit up when…

Heidi & Andrew’s Wedding at Seattle Marriott Waterfront

I was thrilled. A wedding with purple/lavender color palette that falls during lilac season. That almost NEVER happens. And I have a huge row of sweet-scented lilac trees all across the back of the POSH cutting garden. So I was giddy. My garden provided so many extra flowers that I was able to make the…
