What a gorgeous color combination for the wedding of Rachel and Jon! Lush purples, blues, and ivory made a very bold statement amongst the beauty of the Hawthorne House in Parkville, Missouri. Beautiful flowers including hydrangea, orchids, delphinium, lisianthus, and freesia were used,along with lovely personal touches provided by the family. Enjoy!
The lovely wedding of Sweta and Sumeet included a rich, bold, color palette of deep reds, touches of blue, and greens. A combination of mixed metallics including golds, silvers, and copper were used.
A beautiful ceremony location at the Overland Park Marriott was transformed into their reception location as a variety of centerpiece styles were used to complete the room. Flowers included blue hydrangea, roses, orchids, hypericum berries, delphinium, and eucalyptus.
What a beautiful day for the wedding of Cam and Sandi! This lovely wedding took place at the beautiful Stony Point Hall in Baldwin City, Kansas. Sandi chose a beautiful combination of yellow and ivory, along with small touches of purple. A decorated arch of fresh flowers served as the backdrop for the ceremony and the images provided by Grant Watkins Photography show the beauty of the land surrounding the ceremony location. Enjoy!!
Part 2 of the Winter “Blues”includes some more great photos from our home decor feature that were not picked for the magazine. Please enjoy, along with my narrative for the feature.
So now what? The holiday season is coming to a close and we often find ourselves both relieved and slightly melancholy at the same time. The packing up of holiday decorations can cause our homes to feel empty and cold, with a long time left until spring.
Winter is a time to rediscover our own homes. Families often spend more time inside during the winter so it makes perfect sense to decorate for the frigid cold still ahead and bring some of the outdoors in.
Along with the fresh smells of evergreen and organic elements like pods, pine cones, and nuts, find that cozy corner to curl up with a good book and embrace your own home as a place to relax and rediscover.
Our team shot on location at the home of long-time Lee’s Summit residents Carl and Amy Johnson. Carl is the owner of Sportsman’s Outfitter and Marine and Amy is the founder of the Noticed Network. We thank them for allowing us into their home.
When Lee’s Summit Lifestyle magazine wanted to do a home feature with ideas for Winter decor I immediately thought of Carl and Amy. Their home is beautiful and it has been quite a labor of love. They spent the better part of a year renovating and updating their home. Previous owners had left the home in disrepair. They traveled between residences for months all while raising their four children, and managing their businesses. We had a great time on the day of the photo shoot and the brownies pictured in the magazine were made personally by Amy. Many of the images in the blog were featured in the magazine but there are also several gems that didn’t make the magazine that we have to share!! Enjoy!
When we provide flowers and decor for people that we know and have personal friendships with , it always adds another dimension to our day . I was so excited that Aubrey and Adam thought of us when they were planning their Kansas City wedding.
Adam and my husband went to high school together and have remained friends over the years. Having the opportunity to meet Aubrey and help her with her wedding was a great joy. We love what we do and bringing joy to others on their wedding day never gets old. We also had the great opportunity to attend the wedding and reconnect with old friends. Great day !
So I am in love with the Elms Resort and Spa. Every time I go up there, I feel as if I am transported into a era of time gone by. I simply love everything about it. The weddings we have done there have ranged from formal to garden romance and they all have had the beautiful backdrop of this historic building, manicured grounds, and old-fashioned hospitality.
For the wedding of Jennifer and Joshua soft pink shades of floral were used. Beautiful roses and lush hydrangea were featured the most. A very soft and romantic look was created by adding soft pink napkins, along with sweetheart rose clusters at each place setting.
Original plans for an outdoor wedding were changed since the weather called for rain. The beautiful Regent ballroom was transformed into a pink paradise with large lush arrangements, a flower filled chuppah, and a petal filled aisle.
