Jill and Aaron Juckette

A beautiful wedding for my beautiful friends, Jill and Aaron. I knew them both separately and was overjoyed when they got together. This wedding united some of my favorite people in Jefferson City, the friend and family network of this couple can't be beat. Jill's bouquet was a scepter of calla lilies and cymbidiums with an antique brooch (which she rocked,) the altar pieces were calla lilies and roses, some great decisions by Jill transformed a couple of banquet rooms into a truly elegant event - with fireworks!

parallel lilac

Another river cane structure design (I'll stop when I get it really right) with lilac and freesia. The stem insertions are all parallel to the structure which really helps to give it a growing look.

peonies and ranunculus

A familiar, pretty combination of peonies and ranunculus. If a flower, style or color story is particularly relevant It will show up here more often, it helps both brides and myself be more trend conscious. The bridal bouquet is of; pink peonies, white ranunculus and green button mums. The bridesmaids bouquet is a monobotanical arrangement of white ranunculus.

foliage design

An arrangement of foliages can be a nice change of pace and still very striking, plus I like green; philodendron, leaves, hypericum berries, bells of ireland, button mums and there's a green spider mum hiding back there somewhere.

orchid and dracaena

I posted this yesterday but the light in the greenhouse was much more agreeable today, (all cheer for good diffused light!) A dracaena structure bound together with bindwire and moss to hold a permanent orchid bloom plant.

dubium and dracaena

This monobotanical piece was created in a 6'x6' cube using dracaena stems that had lost their rigidity and were no longer sellable as a greenhouse plant. They did however make an excellent mechanic for the Dubium (ornithogolum) blooms. A little bind wire (love that stuff,) is the only other mechanic.
