I met Abby nine months ago at a bridal show, during the snows of January. She stood out because she was looking for sunflowers, the cheerful golden flowers of warm summer days that I was dreaming of. So different from the snowstorm outside.
Abby and Matt were married at his parents home in Acme, the most beautiful country setting I have seen.
Beautiful blue skies and the Twin Sisters in the background, the ceremony was held at the edge of a pond (far left). It was a warm day, that is for sure, but well worth it after the cold summer we have had.
Abby's bouquet contained cream garden roses and peach/orange dahlias. They really glowed in the sun shine. All flowers for this wedding were locally grown in Mount Vernon, WA. By doing so, all the flowers are extremely fresh and picked specifically for this wedding.
Stems were wrapped in chocolate brown satin ribbon, that matched the table linens and other decor.
All the bouquets together. The bridesmaid bouquet flowers included sunflowers, white dahlias, peach/orange dahlias and purple dahlias.
The ceremony arch was covered in flowers across the top. They were so bright and cheerful, perfect for a late summer wedding. Flowers included dahlias, sunflowers, zinnias, bells of Ireland, herbs and grasses. Abby took advantage of one of my bridal packages, which included the choice of a floral arch or two large floral urns.

The ceremony aisle was lined with shepherd hooks, holding vases filled with flowers.

Flower girl baskets were cute woven baskets lined with orange gingham fabric. We created the toss petals using dahlias and hops. The final mix reminded me of potpourri, perfect for a garden wedding!

I so enjoyed working with Abby and Matt on their wedding and appreciate being apart of this beautiful ceremony. Wishing them great happiness in their married life together.
