The First 1209 Wisconsin Wedding

I am originally from Madison, Wisconsin, but have lived in Phoenix for most of my life. I spent my summer breaks with my grandparents until my late teens, so I have always felt like a piece of me has belonged there. There’s something about being in the Midwest that makes me feel content… maybe it’s all the beer, or the scereney, or the fact that people are way nicer? All true. Honestly, there are several reasons that keep me going back, so it was only a matter of time that I decided to bring a piece of 1209 into the mix. Emmalee and Jacob’s wedding this past summer at The Lageret was my first Wisconsin wedding, and I seriously cried with joy when I saw these insanely beautiful images.

It Was All A Dream :: Erin + Patrick

wedding-florist-madison-wisconsin

There is a special connection we have with each and every wedding we are a part of. Every bride and groom's personalities, styles and overall visions for their wedding day are always different, which is why our job is far from dull. Each wedding we do never looks the same as the last, and each team of creatives and vendors we get to work with changes. A couple's wedding day seldom goes forgotten, and we make it a mission to provide flowers and decor that is fitting to who our clients are as individuals.

On the day of December 31, 2016, Erin and Patrick were married at The monOrchid... where they also rang in the New Year with their loved ones by their side. These two worked closely with a team of people who came together to create a wedding to be remembered. One of the reasons why this wedding came together seamlessly was because of the quality relationships the vendors already established with one another. With the help of Kris and Tyler from Konsider It Done, a dream team was literally created. When you are working alongside your friends (those who just understand your style and trust in your work) it makes the process that much more amazing. We admire the efforts that every single vendor put into this wedding, especially Kym Ventola. We go wild for her work! She pays attention to the details, the moments, the light, the emotions.... to everything that truly matters in a photograph. She has been featured in countless print and online publications, and once again her work (and the team behind Erin + Patrick's wedding) was highlighted on Junebug Weddings this week! It's always an honor to know that one's work is being seen by people across the world... it's a trippy feeling.

We’ll never forget looking out at our friends and family between laughs during the ceremony. It’s humbling to feel the love from so many people rooting for your success with every ounce of their hearts. And then when looking back at each other, we were so filled with undying love, excitement, and pure contentment. We could live in that moment forever.

This was a very special 2016 wedding for us. It signified the start of our very first spring-season. As time continues to pass by, and as we continue to learn and grow, we want to sincerely thank each and every bride and groom we have been able to work with, along with all of the amazing vendors. It's been way cool spreading our floral and design love all over these events and weddings! It's what we obsess over everyday, and it's what we are good at. We will continuing serving our 2017 bookings with so much heart, while staying true to the 1209 quality and style.

The Royal Palms :: A Mixed Metal Inspired Wedding

phoenix- scottsdale-wedding-florist

Last month, we were approached by Desert Whim to collaborate on a styled wedding shoot with photographer, April Maura. The shoot was hosted at The Royal Palms Resort & Spa. Now, for those who have never been to The Royal Palms... it's a gorgeous, intimate resort with a Mediterranean vibe + luscious green gardens. It's really, really, really romantic. That's the simplest way to put it! Its surroundings transport you to another place, and it's easy to forget that we're still in Phoenix, Arizona. Countless events and weddings are held here every year, and the cool thing is that each event has a different look from the next. This venue can be transformed to fit many different styles, preferences and color palettes.

For this particular shoot, the floral inspiration for the centerpieces and bouquet was heavy greenery + whites and creams + a pop of berry. We found some amazing kale with an ivory and blush center that we paired with an assortment of eucalyptus, white ranunculus, allium and lisianthus. To fill the small gaps, we chose to add in white wax flower with a berry-colored center that perfectly complimented the hanging amaranthus. We also couldn't pass up adding in some bigger, blush-colored ranunculus. We believe that there should always be a show-stopping flower in our designs, and these ranunculus were definitely it! We wrapped the stems of the bridal bouquet and boutonnière with a pale, eggplant-colored silk ribbon that matched the table-runner, tying in the bridal accessories with the table decor.

The overall inspiration of a mixed metal design (combining various vases, goblets, dinnerware and candle holders) with a simple and sophisticated color palette, plus a lovely couple, made for an elegant and cohesive design fitting to the venue's space. It was a pleasure to be a part of this collaboration!
