Renee and Joe--- October 9, 2010

I love wedding story boards. It has become my new favorite way to display my work. Each bride and groom has a different personality and style. My job is to bring that out in the floral arrangements. This bride brought in a specific bouquet she found online that she loved, we took those ideas and made a bouquet that was all her own full of white stargazer lilies and white dendrobium orchids. It was a pleasure to work with Renee.

My experience with Floral Design was amazing! Angela was so dedicated to my wedding and personalized so many details of my wedding. She worked so hard at designing exactly what I wanted and I was so incredibly happy with my wedding. The flowers made my wedding so beautiful and I could not have asked for a better florists. She delivered all of my flowers to me and the church seperatly while I was getting ready. She was on time and prompt and even let me come in the day before the wedding to look at all the arrangements. Thank you Angela!

Wedding Location: Kroc Center Coeur D'Alene, Idaho

My fiance and I had attended a bridal fair in Post Falls, where we met Angela Austin. At that time we were getting pretty stressed because we were getting down to the wire and we still had no ideas for floral arrangements. I came across Angela's table and immediately loved her work! We set up an appointment that day and I walked into her shop a few days later. She made me feel extremely confident in choosing her as my florist as we glanced through different books together. Then, I found it! I knew exactly what I wanted! And Angela made it all possible and in my price range! It was a dream come true! Not only did she make my gorgeous bouquet and beautiful boutonnieres, corsages, and bridesmaids' bouquets, but she also made all of the amazing centerpieces and even helped make one of the silk floral arrangements that my fiance and I had put together, five times better! I thought my wedding was absolutely stunning as it was, but with Angela's artistic touch, she made everything explode with color! Thank you Angela!!

Plum Crazy!

I love shades of purple for winter weddings.  The peacock feathers compliment  the purple tones  and I am always drawn to different, interesting textures.

Sunday, October 24, 2010 More fall inspiration

Desert Bloom or Sedona Sunset
 Enchanted Dream Weddings and Events      SMP Style Circle
Another beautiful warm fall color palette.  I love the style of this board, the colors are rich and textures are great. 

Fall wedding inspirations

 The wedding inspiration boards found on Snippet and Ink are wonderful!
 I love fall in northern Idaho, it makes a beautiful backdrop for a wedding.  This particular board reflects that warm, inviting feeling of fall.
The idea of homemade jams in cute little jars as guest gifts is simple, yet thoughtful and the variety of pies and tarts on the dessert table gives a warm and welcoming feeling for guests. The floral arrangements reflect the warm pallet and add to the country charm.

Mood: crisp autumn, warm farmhouse
Palette: burnt umber, burnt sienna, warm cream, brown tweed
