Britney + Jarred at Diamond Woods Golf Course, Monroe, Oregon

We have learned through the years that many parts of a wedding are under the bride or her family's control.  The decisions they make are the ones they expect to see on their special day.  One aspect that is out of everyone's control is that of the weather.  So, that being said, Britney and Jarred had one of those Oregon rain-touched summer weddings.  Many decisions were reconsidered as the day developed and the weather did not improve. Thankfully, their venue did have many inside options. The bride handled every unexpected turn with grace and understanding.

We share this first picture to prove that even rain can be fun!
AND the best news, the skies cleared for their ceremony!

Britney's bouquet held white hydrangeas, a variety of white roses, white lisianthus and beautiful metalina roses.  The bouquet was collared with one of our favorites: galax leaves.

A family heirloom pearl necklace was used on the bride's bouquet wrap.  This was perfect for these flowers. Even the clasp on this necklace was beautiful.  We love adding sentimental pieces to our bouquets.

Such a beautiful group of women!

We delivered the maid's bouquets in Bllumeboxes with details to match those of the white hydrangea centerpieces.

Simply classic white hydrangeas in black Blumeboxes accented with ivory ribbon and the bride and groom's monograms.  So pretty!

Britney and Jarred, Thank you for selecting Celebration Florals for your wedding.  We loved designing your flowers!  Thank you to Powers Photography for most of the photos used here.

Elizabeth and Nick: An intimate woodland wedding

Elizabeth and Nick came to us with a color palette of soft peach, champagne shades, soft greens, and browns to use in their natural woodsy themed wedding. Oh, how we embraced their vision. We loved the challenge this wedding brought to us!

We used a variety of florals and added fern curls, succulents, honeysuckle vine, an artichoke and even an air fern. We loved this bouquet and thought it was perfect for our bride and groom's vision.

Nick's boutonneire carried the theme even further with succulent, fern curl and some beautiful lichen.

We used an antique doily, provided by the bride as a wrap, adding to the beauty.

We knew we loved this wedding. When the bride sent us these kind words, we knew we had met her expectations! "Thank you both for the GORGEOUS bouquet, boutenieres and corsages. They were all stunning. I LOVE the bouquet, the colors and textures were incredible and really looked beautiful with my dress. I had no idea I would feel so immediately attached to my bouquet. I think for me it was the biggest thing to represent me being a bride!"

Congratulations and thank you for letting us be a part of your special day. And thank you to Silver Spoon Image for capturing these great shots and sharing them with us!

Kelsey and Joe marry along the Willamette River!

Our beautiful bride Kelsey! We were so honored to design the flowers for Kelsey and Joe's summer wedding. Peggy has known Joe's parents for more than 35 years, so this we certainly special for her. The wedding took place at a private residence on the Willamette River.
We are looking forward to receiving the professional photos from At Play Photography!
In the meantime, enjoy!

Classic white rose bouquet. We used three different sizes of white roses to achieve this look. Stunning and beautiful.

Peach, white, and navy were the colors Kelsey and Joe selected. Loved the clean lines of the peach and white roses Kelsey chose for her maids. Bouquets were wrapped with a lighter peach satin. Yummy!

Staying cool in the shade in the late afternoon heat. Who would have thought that the July 4th weekend in Oregon would be HOT!

A special moment as Kelsey's father escorted a radiant bride toward her groom.

A great use for the carnation orbs that lined the aisle. We transfered these to cylinder vases for the head table. Loved the custom designed table runners!

Our bride requested white on white, feathers, pearls, crystals, and rhinestones...we call that BLING! We think we met her requests. This really was a spectacular custom designed bridal bouquet...just what we LOVE to do! Thanks Hilary and Craig for trusting Celebration Florals.

Great wooden bench just outside the barn...photo opportunity!

Happy flowers, happy bride! Looking forward to seeing the professional photographs! Congratulations to Hilary and Craig!

We both love how this bouquet turned out. We just know our bride will, too!

Pure lusciousness! Soft, flirty, and sexy all in one! Oh we love this!

Think white on white, feathers, rhinestones, pearls and just over the top beautiful! We can hardly wait to start designing Hilary and Craig's wedding flowers for Saturday! Keep watching for a sneak peek...

Springtime Wedding Corvallis Bezeall Memorial Forest

We always love to see that first look photograph. What a wonderful opportunity to see a couple and their connection. We appreciate how difficult it is for a photographer to capture this moment. Great catch, Trudy Ewing!

Springtime in western Oregon is a beautiful time. Wonderful flowers to choose from. Our bride wanted a woodsy garden look for her celebration. Purple anemones were the perfect accent to the white and spring green. This bouquet was wrapped with some fun dark brown twine. Fun, whimsical, and woodsy! Congratulations Lucy and Joey! We look forward to seeing the professional photographs.

The maid's bouquets were garden inspired spring green and white. A great look for a wedding at Oregon's Beazell Memorial Forest.

The groom's bouttoneire had a sentimental dragonfly in honor of his father. What a wonderful way to honor his memory. We love to add meaning to our pieces for our brides and grooms.
