Behind the Scenes

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!

We received the pictures from our photo shoot with Mark Van Scyoc and we are so pleased with them! Expect to see some changes on the website in the coming weeks, a long with a blog or two of the finished product. What you won't be seeing on the website are the behind the scenes shots that we enjoyed  and chuckled at. We thought we'd share a few with you here on the blog.

One of our helpers at the photo shoot was a day old lamb. She followed us around and overall made for an adorable addition to the photos.

Feeling dizzy yet?

Trish and Lindy kept forgetting to keep their eyes opened during this part of the photo shoot.

Careful, if you lay on the ground you might get covered in flower petals.
