I am a wife to my beloved and a devoted puppy mom. I am a wedding blogger, a photographer, a fashion fanatic, and a woman who seeks adventure. I’m just a Midwest gal who loves the north woods and dreads the freezing winters. I never get sick of coconut lattes and I am a big fan of naps. I believe the Midwest has something special to offer: love. Love is meant to be shared, celebrated.
I grew up playing weddings with old lace table clothes and curtains, my love for weddings followed me through my teens and into my college years. I always dreamed that I would become a wedding planner and help brides plan every exquisite detail of the most important day of their life. God had different plans for this girl, I became a wedding photographer and get to help play an amazing role with the couples I love on their wedding days. Recently wed, I got to go through the process from start to finish and I honestly loved every moment, every detail, every unique touch that made our day perfect. The Midwest has a unique vibe and style that is often forgotten, we hope you get to take a piece of the great Northwoods with you today!
with warm weather approaching and the whisper of peonies on the horizon that something soft, lush, and pink (oh yes!) is welcomed with open arms by ANW. i am dying over these stunning arrangements by prairie fair based out of st. paul, minnesota, accompanied by the amazing photos from summer street photography. oh, i can almost smell these lush flowers… i am so dreaming of spring right now.
if you are looking for something ultra feminine, elegant, and gorgeous: think peonies. these can be arranged with a number of other flowers and just scream lush. i have to say that the florist that arranged these lovely flowers is just as beautiful as they are…
Normally at this time of year we are only dreaming about peonies. The bitterness in the wind is slowly becoming just a chill, and muscari and tulips are bravely peeking out from the subtly warmer earth. This year, however, the chill has evaporated from the air entirely, and even peony bushes are budding in the unusual heat.
Last summer peonies bloomed predictably, at the beginning of June. And thankfully they did, because Kendra of Summer Street Photography and I were counting on it. On June 10th Kendra, one of my nearest, dearest, oldest friends in the world, was to marry the man of her dreams carrying no less than the flowers of her dreams, and to our delight, she was able to purchase hundreds of lush strong peonies from a peony farm near her home in Boston, MA just before the crop began to fade. I had the privilege of arranging the blooms, and while those heavy headed mamas were stunning on their own I added some lilac, scabiosa pods, dusty miller, boxwood, berzelia, astilbe, and pitcher plants for texture, color, and interest. I adorned Kendra’s bouquet with soft pink velvet, nude vintage lace, and a cameo the bride had purchased from an antique store. I think the flowers knew how important the day was and shown extra beautifully in honor of the occasion.
So here’s to the swiftly coming crop of this year’s peonies! What will you do with yours? I swoon at the thought!
