We have been so busy with the holiday season, I finally have time to catch you up on some things! This is a fabulous wedding we did last year with the lovely couple Emily and John out at Garden Vineyards in Hillsboro. They are such a sweet couple and put so many wonderful details into this wedding which made it extra special. They made the cutest printed handkerchiefs as a favor for each guest. For the floral arrangements, we used a lush combination of Juliet and Karamel Antik garden roses, Alexandra and Avalanche local roses, local dahlias, unripe blackberries, scabiosa pods, lemons, coxcomb, snow-on-the-mountain, peach hypericum, and lemon scented geranium. Phil + Kim Photography did an amazing job capturing the day and this wedding was posted on Style Me Pretty as well! Thanks Emily and John for including ink & peat in your special day - we loved being a part of it!
As the weather turns to fall in Portland, I thought we could use some color and cheer today! This is a charming wedding we did all the personal flowers for - here's the lovely couple Anna and Ivalle. They got married back in August at Sa-hah-lee Golf Course (with initial photos being taken at their hotel - The Nines). All the photos were taken by the talented Yasmin Khajavi. Go to her blog to see even more wonderful pics. Along with so much help from their friends and family, the planning was done by Hitched Weddings & Events. What a darling couple these two are. I love all the yellow, coral, and aqua colors they chose - especially in all the details - even right down to those gorgeous shoes! What a playful collection of favors and decor details as well - I love seeing an event that is so well put together and it looks like everyone had a blast! The bouquets consisted of Bride-to-Be dahlias, billy buttons, zinnnias, Moscow coral roses, Girlie Follies peach spray roses, button yarrow, feverfew, fillament grass, coral hypericum, scabiosa pods, unripe blackberries, and geranium. Congrats to the happy couple!
More on the flowers of the Street of Eames tour that we did. This is the Oringdulph house which was designed in 1958 and remodeled recently. We did 2 large white cube arrangements on the built in dining table. We wanted to echo all the orange tones in the home. We used Orange Milva Ecuadoran roses, green berzellia, dragon-eye leucadendron, green bud hydrangea, kale, coral hypericum berries, and chocolate eucalyptus leaves. This is one of my favorites as the intense colors add such a nice pop against the white ceramic container and the wood table - the flowers so juicy and lush.
Another home on the Street of Eames modern home tour with floral designed by ink & peat. This is the Yeon house designed in 1949. John Yeonis is know as a famous "environmental modernist" architect here in the northwest. His designs are often kept in original condition by its owners as they so respected his original intent. This sagey green color is a a signature component of several Yeon homes so we wanted to bring it into the floral arrangements. Colors in the home are muted and light-dappled.We used blue/green succulents, Alexandra roses, yellow beehives, billy buttons, white stock, alstromeria, and dusty miller foliage.
