A little peek at a wedding last July. I will post more on these two later. A little known fact about me and this bride, Danielle–the first time we met face to face was on her wedding day! All floral planning done via email (mostly) and phone. It is one of my favorite weddings of 2011.

From today’s wedding at Excelsior Covenant Church and Hazeltine National Golf Course.
And I never forget the ladies room. Even if the bride doesn’t order one. I believe flowers should be in the bathroom.
From the Architectural Antiques photo shoot last May. Ranunculus in spring makes me want cry it is so good. Sometimes I will catch myself holding my breath when I design with it like this.
Fall is my favorite time of year because of the textures and colors, but I think I am starting to mourn the loss of summer and all the flowers that go with it. I need to go pick some more dahlias in the garden and get over it.

You’d think these peony were airbrushed. I don’t have those skills. They were just this perfect.
People ask me what I do with the bouquets that I make for photo shoots. I happily give them away to family, friends, or someone who first says “Wow, that is so pretty!”
“Yeah. You want it?”
What am I going to do with it? (and, ironically, my kids are really allergic to flowers.)
These are some photos I took of two of the bouquets I recently did for Southwest Metro Magazine. One was not used for the issue and the other was shown in a wide shot. Here they are up close. I have really fond memories of these bouquets which is why there are so many pics.
It’s official, I will be planting twice as many dahlias next year. Especially this one.
I don’t need a new dress…
Thank you Southwest Metro Magazine for this wonderful cover and article in your September 2011 issue! It was a pleasure having you at our home/studio. Thank you for giving me the creative license to design these autumn inspired bouquets for your readers. It was so much fun!
Many thanks to Liz, Bret and Emily for your warm personalities and inspiring talents.

A year ago I read an article in my local paper telling the story of a local girl who created wedding dresses. From the moment I saw Tara’s navy blue Kelsey dress, I was smitten. Her use of color and textures within a garment were hypnotic to a floral designer like me.
Now she is here, back in MN from NYC. You lucky brides.

want to know something wonderful? I will be designing for a bride wearing a custom Tara LaTour in May 2012. (insert happy dance here)
October 20th…a month and a half later..make that two. Two Tara LaTour brides in May 2012! I am in fashion/flower heaven.
