I met Kate thru an introduction from Jen Ferrall wedding planner and interior decorator. Thanks for the introduction Jen, you work with such lovely couples and it always makes my work easier when a bride works with a planner. Kate and Mark had selected Spruce Mountain Ranch as their wedding site because of its natural beauty and its stress free earthy ambience.
Kate is an intensive care nurse so as you can imagine she works long hours with a lot of stress. The first thing she told me was that she wanted to create a wedding that was stress free for everyone especially her bridesmaids. She requested that they wear their favorite “little black dress” and if they didn’t have one then they were informed they should. Great advice Kate, and isn’t that just like a nurse to be thinking about others before herself.
Kate mentioned that she would like bright intense colors for her bouquets and I confirmed her thinking because of their dramatic contrast with black. She told me she likes shades of orange and yellow and especially likes tiger lilies. So that was it. I added just a little blue and purple to the color pallet, and a few black seed pods from some Lazy Susan growing in my garden. By adding a touch of black it helped the bouquets coordinate with the black dresses. BAM. The bouquets did just what I envisioned. Happy, cheerful, bouquets, with a great “pop”of color in perfect contrast to black dresses, carried by stress free bridesmaids and a their bride. It makes me smile just looking at these pictures.
A special thank you goes to Kandidkate Photography for sharing all these wonderful pictures. Your photography is amazing and thanks to your work you make my floral work shine. If you are in need of a photographer you really should check out her website. You won’t be disappointed.
In parting I would like to share this lovely review from Kate.

Ambience Florals is absolutely wonderful. Liz is a delight to work with. In our first meeting she had me identify floral arrangements that I liked and truly listened to my vision for the wedding. From my very vague description to “pop color” “joyful”, she absolutely nailed the flowers. I could not have been more pleased. She is also reasonably priced. In an industry marked with inflated costs, it is refreshing to work with someone who delivers a quality product at an affordable rate and is motivated because they love what they do.
Very true, I do love my work and thank you Kate for this kind review.
