Liz & Todd were a total joy- planning from afar with the help of designer Amanda at Northsage Events and the crew at Montana Wildflower Weddings this duo pulled out all the stops. Gorgeous dark wood barn tables, a classy color palette and a beautiful Montana backdrop. Liz was a champ and while it poured rain and even hailed on her big day, she didn’t let it get the best of her. In Montana, weather can dictate the day and what should have been an elaborate archway covered in florals quickly turned into 32 centerpieces! Despite the weather and last minute changes, this amazing couple said I do under a Montana sky with a beautiful backdrop and danced the night away with friends and family. Big congratulations to you Liz & Todd and thank you for trusting us!
Mackenzie and her mom were a joy from the start. We met briefly while Mackenzie was in town to talk wedding floral and I loved her light and airy aesthetic. She wanted a romantic look that was feminine yet classic! Pale peachy-blush & gray set the tone with a gorgeous Montana backdrop and enthusiastic wedding party. We landed on flowering branches for the center of the room with low compote arrangements for the outlying guest tables and gorgeous décor from Better to Gather Events really set the stage! A huge congratulations to Mackenzie & Josh.
This workshop always comes at the perfect time of year – when I need a little hop in my step, a fresh perspective and a new purpose. Not only do we work with some of the most talented florists in the industry and learn their tips, tricks and techniques, but we also get the opportunity to connect with florists in our field and form life long relationships. I’m gearing up for our trip in just 2 short weeks and there are an array of emotions- I am anxious to see my flower friends and be in their presence, excited to play at the beach and enjoy some stellar food but also nervous to be surrounded by that much talent and hope that I can absorb every ounce of education while I am there!

This gorgeous spring wedding at Chancey’s Event Center in Huntley, MT was the start of an incredible season full of beautiful blooms. Lauren came to us in 2015 with clear direction; she wanted a classic take on a fairy tale wedding. Her favorite flower, lilacs, had to be incorporated into the bouquets and centerpieces. Lavender and ivory took front seat for these designs with peonies, roses, wax flower, freesia and more- the scent was amazing! With that addition of beautiful lavender linens, dozens of gold mercury votives, Disney silhouette table numbers & more this wedding as one for the books and fit this couple perfectly. Congratulations Lauren & Nathan!
Scotti & Josh have an energy like no other. You can tell they are the perfect compliment to one another and push one another to be better, stronger, & more loved. I had met Josh before casually and knew that Scotti was the sister of a past model (our very first photoshoot ever!) but I didn’t realize how much I would learn to enjoy their company. Scotti and I met briefly as they were planning on a short schedule to discuss specifics and determine their overall aesthetic. We landed on deep burgundy tones with hints of blue – complimenting an almost bohemian vibe. Of course the lovely Cassie at Better to Gather Events was at the helm assisting with the transformation of a music venue into a wedding worthy landscape with hanging geometric pendant lighting, a corrugated metal backdrop & bicycle wheel ceremony backdrop. It couldn’t have been more personal or more inviting. It has been several months since their wedding, but we still enjoy running into and working with this amazing couple. That’s right, they are the proud owners of Elements Catering! So take a minute, check out this amazing wedding and if you’re in need of some delicious food – talk to this guy! Congratulations Youngs.
Jennifer & David were a joy to work with. Although often I do not meet the grooms during planning or even the day of the wedding, I could tell in every moment captured by Brianne at Captivated Photography that these two were meant to be together. Classic gray suites, a neutral palette & dreamy light but even more the absolute joy on every face at this wedding made for a timeless and breathtaking day. A big congratulations to the Carpenters.
I have always enjoyed our collaborations with Amanda at Northsage Events & Design but this project was one of a kind. A photo shoot inspired by John Mayer’s Paradise Valley album took us to another place. A gorgeous table scape with dark, lush florals, rustic leather touches, buffalo skull, bolo tie and more. Every last detail planned to perfection for the spring/summer issue of Rocky Mountain Bride: Montana and captured beautifully by the Orange Photographie. We can’t get enough of this sexy duo & the mountain scenery.

After a season of pastel pinks, peaches and ivories we were ready for color! So when Allison from Font & Figure wanted to collaborate on this Mexian inspired photoshoot we couldn’t pass it up. Inspired by a vintage long sleeved tea length bridal dress, the photoshoot sprang to life. We wanted the feel of an edgy bride with some grit and so the floral bandolier was created! A simple table scape for two with Mexican touches popped against the beautiful blue gray sky and natural limestone backdrop. A big thank you to our brave model Ashley – you killed it!
What can I say – I love these two. Miss Amy was my little sister at AOII during my college years and although we seemed like an unlikely match, it didn’t take long to admire her sarcastic sense of humor, join along when she whipped out some sweet dance moves and laugh when we came home from shopping with the same clothes and shoes! So when she contacted me about wedding flowers for her nuptials that would take place at Hyalite Youth Camp in Bozeman, MT I was thrilled. As avid outdoors people Amy and her husband Greg wanted a campy organic feel but with a touch of sophistication like any wedding should. It was by far one of the best wedding experiences I have ever had and the happy couple surrounded themselves with the most incredible people with big hearts, great stories and lots of laughs. Coordination by the lovely Bash Bozeman and photos by Cou Cou Studio this wedding was one for the books. Congratulations Breitmaiers!
So often during bridal fairs I take the flowers home, they sit on my coffee table and eventually get thrown away, but this time I wanted some great close up shots. So I reached out to Allison at Font & Figure and Taryn from Belle en Blanc to be our gracious model and away we went! It just so happened that the bridal shop was hosting an Alvina Valenta Trunk show and they had incredible gowns to show off! It reminded me we have a great wedding community in Billings and when we come together amazing things happen. A big thank you to Allison & Taryn for making this come to life!
