Mr. Adam at Adams DJ Service referred Jody to Countryside Floral and Garden to do her wedding

flowers… and then I referred Melissa back to Adam and then in return he referred

Ann and Eric back to me… but I can’t show you pictures of those wedding because they

haven’t happened yet. It’s Soooo Great to Know other Fabulous Wedding Vendors that

you can trust and depend on.


But The Wedding of Jody and Philip has Happened and Jody Brought me a DVD of

all the photos from the wedding and I talked to Clane Gessel Photography

and he said I could use some…………..  What a Great Photographer!!!  Wow!!!

The first time I have ever seen his work… Pretty Cool!!!!!

Take a Look……………………….

In this picture he Greyed out some of the color…  Amazing…. The pops of Green just

faded away. You will see in the later pictures what I mean. Jody’s Wedding Bouquet

was made of , White Roses (Polo), White Mini callas, Green Hypericum Berries,

Dianthus “Trick” which I call Moss on stick, Blue Hydrangea, Blue Iris, Dusty Miller,

White Phaleanopsis  Orchid, Bling studded Stephanotis, Ivory Ribbon wrap on stems,

Variegated Lily Grass Loops.

I was Soooooo Excited to be working with Anna and Lars….  First of all She was

BEAUTIFUL.. and he was just stunning….  And what was so Fun about this wedding was

the way it came about for us at Countryside Floral and Garden , I Speak or Present at

several Garden clubs a year, Usually around 4 to 6 presentations. I really enjoy

sharing my talents with people and I have become a Pretty Fabulous Speaker. Funny,

knowledgeable, and entertaining.  During these little presentations of course I

mention the shop and what trends brides are into that particular year because we know

it changes for sure!!!   Anna’s Mom was in the Crowd at one of these presentations and

called me the following week and was like “Jon, You have to do my Daughters

Wedding” and of course I was like “Totally!!!”

Sooooooo… I did!!!!   Lets Take a look shall we..

In the Above Picture.. She was carrying her Bouquet with White Hydrangea, Green

hanging Amaranthus, Green Spider Mums, White Freesia, White Mini Calla and Green

Hypericum, Green Cymbidium Orchids with just a touch of Willow Eucalyptus.

So it had a sea feel to it…

I just noticed as I was Putting the picture on the Blog that she is TOTALLY Smashing

His Boutonniere.  LOL!!!!

Here the Bride is with all Her Bridesmaids…   Yes 6!!!  OMG!!!!

The Girls were wearing Navy…. So we Used Blue Hydrangea, Green Spider Mums,

Green Hypericum, Willow Euc and Equisetum Triangles for some funk…..

Love this Flower Girl HeadBand….  I REALLLLLY Hate Halo’s But I Love Headbands…

They just make so much more sense to me and not to mention they actually STAY on!!!

This one is all hand glued… White Orchids, Dusty Miller, Sea Shells and a Touch of Willow Euc.

LOVE THIS!!!!     Great Bout…. Not Flowers… Just foliage and shell…

so Dusty Miller on Willow Euc and Equisetum banded together with a touch of

Oregonia and a shell…..   You wanna talk about Hand Work……   And don’t forget

the sand….Which is Actually Artificial Snow..Shhhhhhh….Don’t Tell anyone!!!!

Great Ceremony Picture!!!!!!!!!!   The Venue has An Amazing Driftwood arch..  We used

half of the centerpieces down the Aisle and then transferred them to the tables….  With some

White Dendrobium florets as the Petal Dripness…

The Other centerpieces that were already placed on the table where Fat Low Cylinders, with

Equisetum twirled around the vase and I believe that we used Bear Grass as well…

White Hydrangea with Dusty Miller and White Dendrobium Florets floating amongst

the Shells…..   Sand air tossed on the Navy Blue linen with some shells added as well….

Loved the Look….. Especially because the wedding was by the sea…

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!  and LOVED The Had Table…  I told her that I wasn’t going to tell her

What I was going to do… She just had to Trust me…    Glass Trumpet vases, with Grass,

Hydrangeas, Queen Anne Lace, Hanging Green Amarathus, Twisted Natural sticks,

Eucalyptus. All or the Girls Bouquets were placed on the tables with additional leaf

wrapped glass cubes of hydrangea with sea shells tucked in…..  and LOTS of Sand and LOTS of

Shells added..  I loved each Place setting having a Sea Urchin,

Green Fuji Mum, and an abalone shell with Hand Written Names on them……

OMG!!!!  So Fun was this Issaquah Wedding.. Cobalt, Yellow, White…. Cobalt, Yellow, White…

The Bride Delightfully Pretty and the Groom so Tall Dark and Handsome….

We were contracted to do the personal flowers and just bundles and bundles of

Daffodils for the event…  The Bride and Family really made the Event a Success by

creating a lot of the Decor themselves.

The Most Fun Part of Creating this event for me was the Toss bokay….. Not only

was it All Yellow Daffodils BUT we made it in a way that when Katie Threw it,

the bokay broke apart into like 30 little bundles….. ie   “Exploding Bokay”

And as I had made individual bundles I attache little tags created by the Bride

which read cute little funny things like…. ” You will you future husband tonight

but he will be really drunk” or ” Your Future Mother-in-Law is at this event” or

” Elvis will marry you in Las Vegas” or “You will name your

first child Sebastian”… I actually can’t remember what they all said but they were

Hysterical…..  Great Fun for us in the afternoon when we needed the Floral Pick-me up

As you can see it was REALLY FUN!!!!
