We love receiving the pictures from the actual wedding day. It's just not the same when we take pictures of a bouquet while we're wearing a t-shirt and jeans and our work bench is in the background. These bouquets had wonderful texture and color. Roses, babies breath, hypericum, hydrangea, and unique scabiosa pods. Take a look!
Here's another behind the scenes look at what's been going on at Trisha's Flowers! We have quite a few fall weddings coming up and we're loving every minute of it! Here are a few snap shots of the team at work in the barn this week.
One of many trips in and out of our wonderful cooler. Some wedding weekends this cooler is packed to capacity and we fill up 3 other fridges as well!

This beauty is an alter arrangement! Pro tip: we always fill these containers with floral foam (Oasis) in order to get the maximum amount of flowers in a small amount of space. The foam allows for a much taller arrangement as well!
The roses we got in this week were amazing! So full!

Donna adding the finishing touches to the bouquets. Just putting the bouquets together is only half the process. We wire them, wrap the handle with tape, glue on some greenery to cover any gaps underneath the flowers, and then wrap the handle again with ribbon or twine. It can be time consuming and test one's patience, but it's those little details that make the bouquet feel and look finished.
Today we did something new for this wedding. Each of the boutonnieres were assembled in a wine cork! It took us about 20 minutes of trial and error and lots of brainstorming to get it just right, but we think they turned out great! You should have seen us with all of our tools trying to figure out how to make a hole in the cork. I believe a screw, a large nail, a hammer, a pair of scissors, and a screw driver were all involved!
Here's a glimpse at a wedding we did this past Spring. The bouquets had such a fun variety including peonies, roses, bold blue delphinium, pale pink astilbe, lambs ear, wax flowers, and brunnia. This was a fun wedding to do, and looking back makes us miss the very short peony season. All photos by the talented Janae Rose Photography
We think it's so cute when the flower girl has her own mini bouquet.
This pew end made of seeded eucalyptus, wax flower, and delphinium is simple yet elegant.
We have these tall vases available for rent and they make wonderful centerpieces. The height makes it easy for guests to see across the table as well as give a dramatic touch.
February 14th is quickly approaching and we hope you've been thinking about how to show those nearest to you just how much you care. If a flower arrangement is what you're looking for then we can help you out! This year we won't be doing deliveries, so you'll have to stop by the barn to pick up your order.
