Sammi and Branden's vision for their wedding day was incredibly unique: they only invited 30-some-odd of their closest friends and family to celebrate over brunch. In lieu of selecting a bridal party, Sammi asked me to create small posies for every lady in attendance and boutonnieres for every gentleman. They said their vows surrounded by their guests under a lush floral installation, and then danced the morning away underneath the same suspended wreath. To hear more about the special details and photos of this beautiful day, head here for Sammi's post. Enjoy these stunning photos by Maria Lamb!
Attending this dreamy, three-day workshop in at the gates of Glacier in Montana was one of the most encouraging things that happened to Rosemary & Finch last year. Darci of Beargrass Gardens Florals + Events created a wonderful atmosphere for a small group of floral designers to come together, learn, relax, and draw refreshment from each other's company--amidst glasses of wine on the back porch and star gazing under the huge Montana sky. One of my favorite aspects of the experience was that all of the attendees learned so much from each other. Every single student at the workshop was ridiculously talented and I walked away with so many wonderful new flower friends!
We had opportunities to design lush bouquets and centerpieces in a pole barn facing sweeping views of the mountains with a fantastic selection of flowers from Mayesh as well as the chance to forage from the Green Valley Ranch property. And the cherry on top was a fantastic red jammer tour through Glacier National Park before coming back to an exquisite farewell dinner on the lawn styled by Darci and guest instructors Ashley and Nancy. I could keep talking about how much this experience meant to me, but I'll leave you to enjoy Rebecca Hollis's stunning photos of the week.

This one is dear to my heart because the bride is my husband's cousin! In other words, not pictured is me dancing the night away at this beautiful wedding. Congrats, you two! And don't miss their sweet wedding video by Aspire Media Productions (you might spot some of my dance moves).
It was such an honor and a pleasure to be involved in another event created by The Big Fake Wedding. This one was extra special because it actually featured two weddings: a fake one and a REAL elopement! (Thus earning the title of "Biggest.") The inspiration for the event came from the delicate, playful, yet awe-inspiring quality of stained glass, using a glorious mixture of colors ranging from rosy pink to lush green to midnight blue. As always, The Big Fake Wedding pulled together a wonderful variety of uber-talented vendors, so be sure to peruse the vendor list at the bottom of the post. I especially loved that the event was held at Amy Osaba's beautiful studio; her unique style has been an inspiration to me for years. Don't miss more photos from the event featured on Ruffled!
