Color Me Happy at The Driftless | Dubuque, IA

I think we can all agree that we are craving beauty, color, and happiness more than ever. In the last month, the America as we know it has changed immensely. Our lives have been turned upside down in ways none of us could have ever imagined.


This week I want to share beauty and joy with you in the best way I know how-through flowers. I absolutely love the warm and happy pink and peaches and bold contrast from this shoot at The Driftless. It's so easy to breathe life into a space by adding the beauty of colorful flowers!


I know this Easter weekend will look very different for many families. While we'll all be celebrating Easter on a much more intimate scale, away from our churches, extended families and friends, I hope you can find peace, happiness, and thankfulness at home. And if you get a chance, step outside to pick a flower or two from your yard to set on your Easter table to celebrate the day. Even one bloom can bring you and your loved ones joy ❤️


Please enjoy these lovely images, captured by Ivory and Bliss...

Romantic Antike garden roses were the star of the show at this modern wedding table set up. They added a perfect pop of warm pink, and added a romantic touch to the modern elements of the table.

I absolutely loved the bridal bouquet. It was lush garden style bouquet filled with flowers, including Romantic Antike garden roses, standard roses, italian ranunculus, butterfly ranunculus, carnations, dried hydrangea paniculata, and cymbidium orchids. Additional texture was added with curly willow branches and copperbeech foliage.

My absolute favorite part of the day-the awesome black fireplace from Borrow My Vintage. I loved designing this statement piece filled with an assortment of roses, garden roses, carnations, orchids, and willow. If I had my way, every wedding would have a fireplace with flowers!
