…around these parts. It’s a great month to get married too. The buzz of summer days has past, and wedding guests & floral have an ease about them.

I created flowers for Evann + Conor at the Rainier Chapter House, with an intention & focus on a variety of foliage, branches and blooms drawing on the golden and burgundy hues of the season. The bride, an Arizona native, really came to embrace the rich splendor of this region in the fall.

We placed decorative pumpkins on the fireplace mantle and at each place setting, and created taller centerpieces in french-style copper buckets. Notes of soft blue accented the night from the Bridesmaid dresses, to the dinner china to the dusty miller & eucalyptus pods. The bride gathered burlap runners, seating arrangement turn keys and wooden signs to round out the rustic look of the wedding. The groom built a sturdy alder arch that I adorned with mums, smokebush & handing amaranth to mark their ceremony space. And as tradition often calls for, Evann carried a cream & white bridal bouquet.

Thanks to Mike Kane Photography who captured it all wonderfully.

For the reception, they turned the lights off and let candlelight do the magic through dinner, speeches and dancing. A nice touch for this historic place in town!
