At the beginning of July I was able to attend Mint and Lovely's first Trailblazer: Women in Business Summit. A lovely evening, attendees got to network and listen to a Q & A panel discussion with Elizabeth Rees of Chasing Paper and Patti Kelly, director of Public Relations for Kendra Scott.
Did you know you don't have to hire us for alllll the wedding flowers. While we love doing all of them, we also offer À la carte options.
M & R got married on a May day at The Farm at Dover. It was chilly for May (hey, Wisconsin), but that didn't decrease the smiles or joy you could see on everyone's faces. DeGroot Film Co. captured the day so beautifully.
A little look into our wedding day. Six days before gave us six inches of snow. Ah, Milwaukee. Luckily, April 21st was perfect. We had the right mix of sun, snow (a little goes a long way), and the temperature was perfect for a bride with sleeves on her dress.
We love lots of the venues & vendors we get to work with through Cora Flora Studio and wanted to start highlighting them for you!
The Farm at Dover is a special venue. I don't say that to sound cliche. There's just this magic about it that gets me every time I step foot on the property. I'm not sure if it's the property itself, or the owners Tom and Juan who have done such a stunning job bringing their vision for The Farm and the venue to life. I suspect it's a a healthy bit of both.
I was so honored to be asked to provide florals for Elizabeth and Coleen's first workshop together, Establish The Workshop. Spring is still holding out here in Milwaukee. It was a cold gray day for the workshop, so the flowers were bright and brought that bit of spring us Wisconites are craving this time of year.
French tulips, ruscus, spring green carnations, hyacinth, and daffodils were featured in simple, classic glass jars. Plus, a pitcher full of the same blooms for the name card table.
It's always special to me when Cora Flora gets to create for friends. We had two Cora-Flora-Friend-Weddings this October. The first was for L & J, who got married on a crisp day at Cuvée in Milwaukee. When it came to florals, L wanted classic shapes and bright colors. Her bridesmaids carried bouquets featuring one type of flower. And then each of their flowers were featured in L's bridal bouquet. Happy Gnome Photography did a great job (per usual) capturing the joy of the day -- a peek at some of the photos below!
