I know, I know! I haven’t blogged in weeks! I had a wonderful holiday season and made it my mission to take some much-needed time off. I did – and it was glorious. But, about half way through, I started to feel the itch to get back to work. Time off helps me realize how much I actually love my job and how it is PASSION that keeps me going those long summer months. Cori Cook Floral Design is blowing up with some really exciting new developments…which we will be rolling out in the next month or so…so stay tuned! You won’t want to miss it.
On another note, please enjoy this beauty of a wedding that we designed for in early October. This bride and her sweet mom were great to work with and had so many ideas for keeping it fresh and fun, but with a very classy vibe. I think it turned out perfect. We used deep fall colors like burgundies, burnt oranges, eggplants, and emeralds to compliment their choice of champagne bridesmaid dresses and linens. I also loved the way the ballroom at The Oxford Hotel looked with tons of candlelight. It was very moody and romantic. Enjoy this lovely wedding!

Camille got ready at the beautiful Ritz Carlton, Denver.
For Ricky’s Boutonnières, we used pheasant feathers, eucalyptus leaves, and ranunculus. I love how it turned out.
For the ceremony, we loaded up a dresser with varying heights of pillar candles in glass cylinder vases, votives, and taper candles. Then, we reused these same vases as centerpieces after the ceremony.
We designed two types of centerpiece for her guest tables. One was a fabric covered box with a lush arrangement of florals and a gold manzinita branch with hanging votives. The other was an all candle centerpiece with mixed pillar candles and votives. Both centerpieces had velvet banding and brooch detail.
