My best friend's wedding.


I know.  So pretty if i do say so myself. The bride is one of my best friends, Nicole.  I helped her with the vision of her wedding because well…..i’m a bit controlling when it comes with anything flower or fashion oriented (and she’s a big Nike exec with not too much time).  
The goal for the whole wedding was ‘effortlessly beautiful’ – no matching bridesmaid dresses or tight perfectly arranged flowers, but of course this doesn’t happen exactly ‘effortlessly.’ 
Chelsea from Frolic executed the flower vision perfectly, she went beyond my expectations and styled them even better than i was hoping.   And all these gorgeous pictures are by Lisa Warninger

It’s exactly what i pictured.  Each arrangement is different, totally random and looks like it was just plucked from the garden
The flowers were all in season dalia’s, garden roses, and random wildflowers and greenery.  

We were at David Hill Winery outside Portland, with a big yellow country house and ridiculously pretty hills and vineyards.  


The stems on the bouquets were left uncovered and untrimmed – Chelsea just tied them up with ripped white linen strips and Nicole’s was tied with a silk floral hot pink scarf that i’ve had for a while.  
And yes, those are blackberries – Chelsea’s idea and right on.
This is a total testament of bloggers uniting over shared taste.  I knew that Chelsea has done flowers beautifully and has great taste when it came to styling. So instead of hiring a traditional florist – that might’ve no matter how much i stressed it – done things to perfectly, through Chelsea’s blog (Frolic) I knew that she got the look.
