Classic plum, cranberry and gray wedding Billings, MT

What an incredible couple.  I met Rachel and Wes in 2014 to discuss their Fall wedding but plans changed, life happened and then the wedding was moved up to May.  We were thrilled to be available that day to work with this amazing couple.  They have such an endearing love for one another it reminds you what real love and weddings should be about.  We joked that Wes would have to cut back on golfing for the wedding which I’m sure Rachel appreciated it.  And then we ran into them in Maui, HI as our  trips overlapped!  What are the odds.  So congrats Hocevars and I wish you a happy and healthy 2015 and beyond.  Huge thank you to Simply Sara Photography for these beautiful images!

Elegant ivory, plum & blush spring wedding Billings, MT

What a sweet couple.  Linsay & I met while working at the GAP years ago and she was always so sweet and had the prettiest nails.  Isn’t it strange the things you remember about people in your life?  We met just a few short months before the wedding to chat floral and I immediately fell in love with Linsay’s color palette- plum, ivory and blush.  She wanted a collection of peonies and roses for her bouquet and single impactful stems for the gold wine bottles she had DIY’d.  How could I say no?!  It was an incredibly beautiful wedding with simple statements throughout.  Big thank you to Miranda Murdock Photography for these beautiful images and congratulations to the Happy Couple. Linsay & Noah, we wish you the very best.

Gatsby inspired blush & gold wedding Billings, MT

What a beautiful wedding this was.  I began working with Tatum and her mom Christie early on to talk floral for their Gatsby inspired wedding dripping in blush pinks, gold and vintage charm.  It’s not often that we provide decorating but something told me this would be a wonderful partnership and so off we went sourcing overlays, deciding on fabric colors, chargers and more.  The bride’s sister hand crafted each table saying with a meaningful quote from Penned Designs!  We had a blast working with this incredibly amazing family and couldn’t be happier with the way things turned out!  A huge thank you to Carrie Ann Photography for these incredible images, Moments in Time Wedding and Event Rentals for the beautiful backdrop and lighting, and to my awesome crew- you rock.  Congratulations Winklers!

The picture that makes me cry…

When I think of all the things that have lead me to this spot, I am utterly speechless.  I am continually surprised at the way Mac’s Floral has grown.  I have an incredible support system of fellow Montana vendors, family and friends who inspire me everyday to reach further, push the boundaries and continue to challenge myself.   When these pro photos came back from Santa Barbara, I shed a tear.  It was the culmination of all things I had worked so hard for.  Here I was amongst some of the best florists in the country in sunny California at a stunning venue.  How had I gotten here?  How was I laughing and talking with my favorite blog writer Alicia Schwede?  Who am I?  It was all very surreal.  But I left with a clear purpose and new direction for Mac’s Floral.  I felt more confident in my design skills and my policies as a business owner.   This photo will forever remind me of that trip, the skills I learned, the incredible women I met and the new-found confidence I developed.  I hope that every small business owner gets the chance to experience this feeling.

Katalin, how do I even begin to thank you for convincing me to invest in my future and realize my worth as a florist?!  You remind me everyday what it means to be motivated, hardworking, to practice good karma and not let anything stand in the way of success.  Thank you.

Boho Spring Shoot with Vintage Charm

“Jenna, I promise next time we will have this all planned out instead of spur-of-the-moment” – I said.   But for some reason this happens often with the two of us.  We have an idea, a thought a moment and then we go blasting into action, creating these harebrained shoots.  So when she sent me the link to our spring photo shoot at Coulson Park, I could barely stand it.  I knew they would be stunning and I was going to have a heck of a time choosing which images would be included in the blog post!  It didn’t hurt that my beautiful sister, Allison Kazmierski, jumped in front of the lense last minute and got all gussied up to be our rock star model.  I hope this inspires some of you to get out there enjoy spring and see beauty in new beginnings!

Fuchsia & Navy Baseball Inspired Wedding

Teale and Marcus were a joy to work with .  Choosing elements that were personal to the couple; each table number was inspired by a famous name in baseball and the groom’s boutonniere held in a casing from a 21 gun salute at his grandfather’s memorial.  These are the moments you feel privileged to work with a couple who values their family and one another very much.  We chose beautiful pinks, creams and hints of purple to play off the navy and fuchsia wedding colors.  The bride’s bouquet filled with baroness garden roses, pink Floyd, sweet unique, majolica, fuchsia anemones and fuchsia phaelanopsis orchids had great texture. We wish you both the very best and know you have a great future ahead.  Congratulations Weatherheads!  Huge thank you to Miranda Murdock Photography for your always beautiful images.

Rustic Summer Barn Wedding Bozeman, MT

It was an epic day!  Amanda & Dane braved snow…yes snow in June!  It rained through the entire ceremony followed by a beautiful rainbow that stretched across the mountain backdrop and they ended the night dancing in the Big Yellow Barn.  We had such a great time working with Amanda and her family to create rustic floral touches for the ceremony and reception.  Her bouquet was made from peonies, peach finess roses, tulips and more.  Baby’s breath adorned the tables, small arrangements accented the aisleway, one large focal piece for the arch and 4 large urns adorned the aisle entry and barn entry doors.  We couldn’t have done it without the help of Genevieve at Time of Your Life Events and Big Thanks to  Lockie Photography for these beautiful shots!

Black & White Backyard Montana Wedding

Bobbie & Dave were married at a private residence just under the Billings rims.  With a beautiful backdrop of natural stone and spring greens they were surrounded by their closest friends and family.  Katie, the brides sister did all communication with us ordering simple white centerpieces, bouquets and boutonnieres for their summer nuptials.  We had so much fun creating this simple but stunning collection of pieces for their wedding.  Congratulations Bobbie & Dave!
