I must say that while I am mostly drawn to a neutral palette in my everyday world, when given the chance, I love to experiment with color and a little sparkle.

Case in point--the last Wedding Mafia Cocktail Party which was held at Elements Event Centre. Always a fan of the gorgeous David Austin garden rose--I mixed in some hydrangeas and the entirely under-rated carnation and I think it puts together a pretty fab setting. Now you just need some pink champagne!

Thanks to all who stopped by and a huge thanks to the talented and kind Daniel Michael (Images by Daniel Michael) for the photos. A shout out also goes to Nicole for all of her hard work and effort that night!

Green and Purple?

Forecast: A green and purple summer!

These bouquets for Kari's May wedding coordinated with the most adorable JCrew lavender tea-length dresses. The girls looked awesome! Some great photos from photographer Mark Ferguson will be posted soon!

Amanda & Chad at the Westin

Just a few details from a lovely April wedding...

Sometimes simplicity says everything--love the blue, yellow, and cream palette Amanda chose for her flowers. Simple ranuculus, tulips, roses, and hydrangea work so well together for a soft spring look.

The reception took place at the Westin Cincinnati overlooking beautiful Fountain Square. It just so happened that the Annual P&G Flower Carpet on the Square was happening over that weekend. What a view from the reception!

Summer is just around the corner...

Thank goodness for spring weather...but inevitably it gets me thinking about summer and of course all the loveliness of summer weddings! I wanted to show off one of my favorite bouquets from last summer. Simple, colorful, fresh, and classic--peonies can't be beat! This bouquet is comprised of peonies, roses, cymbidium orchids, and hypericum berries. Beth (the bride) carried it with class and style. Photo is by White Photography.

Wedding Mafia Event

Yellow Canary's first Wedding Mafia Event was Thursday, February 5th at the Cincinnati Marriott North in Mason. The theme of the evening was 'Creating the Perfect Wedding Reception'. It was a great evening and we really enjoyed meeting everyone! Our table was black, white, & yellow chic with a touch of citrus zing. (All the lemons added a little summery zip!). A variety of hydrangea, orchids, and roses helped pull the look together. We also had some fun with a retro candy bar/buffet & favors. It was quite a hit! Thanks to Nicole for all her gracious help!

PS-Check out the adorable coordinating ring pillows! My secret source (David) is so talented! More custom pillows will be available for sale online soon! Stay tuned...

Winter Wonderful

A wedding fit for a snow princess (or queen!). Allyson was stunningly beautiful and everything came together perfectly. The Ceremony took place at the Norman Chapel at Spring Grove, and the Reception was at the Hilton Netherland Continental Room. It was such a pleasure pulling the vision together.
