Centerpiece Class 101

We had so much fun teaching Floral Design Centerpiece 101 a few months back. We are gearing up for our next class Fall of 2016. We had sweet treats from Bloom Baking Company and Photos from Case Studios and Allyson Kelchen Photography. Our accommodating venue was at the The Historic Stanley Event Space. We had a wonderful group of gals who made beautiful arrangements. Thank you to everyone who came.unspecified-14unspecifiedunspecified-2unspecified-4unspecified-1unspecified-16unspecified-11unspecified-8unspecified-13unspecified-6unspecified-2unspecified-7unspecified-3unspecified-7unspecified-4unspecified-5unspecified-6unspecified-8unspecified-10unspecified-9unspecified-10unspecified-11unspecified-15unspecified-12unspecified-13unspecified-3unspecified-14unspecified-17unspecified-24unspecified-18unspecified-5unspecified-19unspecified-20unspecified-21unspecified-15unspecified-22unspecified-23unspecified-25unspecified-26unspecified-9unspecified-27unspecified-28

 

Black and White Done Right!

We Love working with unique and edgy brides. Our first wedding of the year this January was just that. Lindsey’s  Wedding was black and white with accents of grey and added in, accents of soft and fluffiness. We added cotton and black olive branches with grey moss in all kinds of textures. Her wonderful wedding took place at Historical Loose Mansion. The guys all wore black converse and black Suits and the girls had black dresses with black fur shoulder shawls. Cake by Dolce Bakery. Of course the day was perfect and we were so happy to work with Lydia Faith Photographs on this blissful event! Congrats to the wonderful couple.

Misty Mansion

A little misty dew didn’t dampen this day. The Lovely Alena and Austin had the wedding of their dreams. Wanting a small getaway wedding was out of reach with a large extended family. So a compromise of a small intimate ceremony and reception with only imitate friends and family followed by a large ball with everyone invited.  Dancing way into the evening was the perfect blend mixed with down times of yard games, Antipasto bar and dessert bar of her’s and his. The personal ceremony made special with a ceremonial blanket made by the grooms mother and sprinkled with petals and herbs by mothers added a unique touch to this perfect day. Congrats to this beautiful couple.

Ruffles in Spring

This past year we had the privilege of working with wedding planner Madison Sanders Events and bringing to life this heart warming styled shoot at Longview Mansion. Not only was it so much fun to work with a great group of vendors but this dress was breathtakingly stunning and a work of art. We were so over joyed to find this spread in the current issue of EA Bride Magazine.

Touch of Tuscany

Leslie wanted a small intimate wedding with close friends and family. An event with a Tuscan feel with wine, good food and laughter. All of this was accomplished with the help of her daughter and planner of Madison Sanders Events. The Romantic setting was at the warm and timeless new venue Restoration 1894. Delicious food was prepared and served by Olive Events Catering and the sweet little historic Grand River Chapel was the quaint location for the ceremony. All of this captured by Anecdotally Yours Photography. Thank you Leslie and Jim for letting us be apart of your special day

Destination St. Louis Wedding

We love to travel and heading to St. Louis MO it was so much fun. Being apart of the union of the Sheridan and Berry families was a weekend we won’t soon forget and will treasure in our hearts forever. Zack and Kelsey’s wedding was one of fun, family and pure love. We stayed in the Missouri Athletics Club where the reception location took place. We worked with a wonderful team of professionals from the hotel staff to event planner Megan with Mr.and Mrs. and of course photography by Alea Lovely. We enjoyed our time with these delightfully and loving families. Thank you for making us apart of yours.

Autumn Abundance

The Midwest has the most beautiful season of fall. The rich colors of the changing leaves was the idea addition to the look and feel of Danielle and Mark’s Wedding. Marsala and Plum mixed with blush, pinks and gold went perfectly with the setting Autumn sunset that crested on the horizon of the Hawthorne House. All of this captured by  Monika of Monphotogrphy.  Congrats to Dani and Mark.

FRIDAY INTRODUCTIONS // Hi Friends I am Amy the heart and soul behind Victorian Gardens. I am a follower of Jesus, a wife and mother to 2 teen boys who you have most likely seen helping me set up and breakdown your event. They are wonderful assistants and along with their creative and talented artist and dad @chalkking make up the main part of our team. Everyday I am so grateful to be able to do this job. I feel so blessed because the job I  wanted to do the most was to stay home and raise my children. Victorian Gardens has given me that opportunity. It hasn't always been easy and we have had some difficult times.  Knowing that you put them first, did your job the best you can, and that your children are grateful that you have always been there for them and they are loved is an irreplaceable and rewarding feeling. They grow up so quickly. Hold yours while you can, soon they won't fit in your arms. Photo by @spencerstudios Blooms from the fall garden! Love this autumn red sedum for this weekends wedding! Little treasures popping up always puts a smile on my face! What's blooming in your gardens?
