flower friday {fab floral feature: studio stems}

This wedding took place dec 28 2009 @ Sundance and it was spectacular! and I mean that in the most serious way. Eve & Rob were my all time favorite clients and its likely that all their other vendors felt the same way. Their unique ideas collaborated with the best local vendors pulled off this epic event harmoniously.

RJW_9467-2Eve really wanted a unique colorful bouquet, with texture variety. Her bridal sitting bouquet was {is} one of my all time favorite bouquets. We did something a little different on her wedding bouquet, using some of her personal favorites. Several varieties of gerb daisies, daisy mums, fern curl, petal-less sunflowers {tipped mint green}, and pin cushions. We wrapped in mint green swiss satin ribbon and a thin forest green satin crossing overlay. The result was exactly what studio stems specializes in, something custom that screamed EVE! Rob adorned a petal-less sunflower boutonniere with some wheat grass accent, and he was special he was the only one with a bout because you see …


the entire bridal party wore Big Star jeans and Matix hoodies! The most unique bridal attire I have yet seen. It has caused some scepticism, its true I have heard it both before and after this event, but really how can you see these images and deny how fantastic the idea turned out?! It went so well with who they are, their events season & location, and lets face it their bridal party was happy, comfy, and grateful! and it turned out bridal party images perfectly unique and appealing.

onto the bridesmaids bouquets, they were deconstructed as many these days are, meaning we used elements out of Eve’s bouquet to make monochromatic clutches for her bridesmaids. some where pincushions, spiky gerb daisies, petal-less sunflowers tipped, and dahlias. All wrapped in black satin with mint green polka gems.


the ceremony was held on the back deck area of the rehearsal hall. It created a unique winter wonderland feel, the snow was fresh and plentiful and glistening. Everyone was warm thanks to the hoodies and jeans {except for maybe Eve} I created wheat grass anchored arrangements for the top and base of iron stands. ceremony was simply decorated but uniquely enough. these arrangements provided a focal point alter, the aisle had a black runner lined with white contained candles and mint green petals. the chairs had black vertical black ribbons down them, the flower girls passed out daisies to the people sitting on the inside of the aisle rather then tossing petals. bistro lights hung off the back deck and into the trees.


inside decor on the other hand was anything but simple.

Alpine event rentals came in and hung staggered lanterns from the ceiling a detail they often provide at Sundance and one that always looks fitting. we tied every chair with vertical running green swiss satin ribbon and then those sashes joined near mid chair with a sunflower blossom. tables adorned classic black and white linens with custom black napkins printed in mint green font adorning Eve’s own custom wedding design. And the centerpieces… well they made the event what it was. I can not take single handed credit for these, they are something that Eve dreamed up, i fine tuned/engineered & produced.


Eve created these fantastic mache swirls and hand painted them all different. We knew for sure we wanted to use them as her centerpieces but needed to create the best platform to do so, first off we both went on a vessel search and Eve found these fantastic pots made from recycled tires and they seemed the best fit. I focused on how to make them sturdy, strong, and unbreakable with good engineering then on the day of we lined the lip of the container with wheat grass and poked fun flowers used through out the event into the grass. Custom table numbers were also inserted on clear swirl pics.

the head table adorned a row of grass with trough like vases in the center and floating flowers.

this was a collaboration between Eve/Rob & Sugar kisses cakes! It really symbolized the unique personality of this couple and brought together this quirky and unique event.
