Sarah and Herman

Mercedes Says...

The moment Sarah, Herman and the mother of the bride walked into my office, it was all laughs and fun. This couple knew exactly what they wanted and what they needed. They were determined to have the entire wedding match them and, accordingly, the flowers. Along with bright colors as the main focus, the bride dreamed of a wild and effortless look. They came to me with pictures and ideas, but what ended up being the main flower had so much meaning. We talked for what seemed for hours and, as they got up to leave, I found out Herman is the owner of Thistle. It was a no-brainer at that point, the star of the show became thistle and it matched perfectly!

The Designs

The look we were going for was wild flowers as if they were freshly picked from the fields—which we accomplished—and we loved it. Mason jars were our vessels and yellows, reds, pinks and fuchsias were our colors. All we needed were the variety of flowers to bring it all together. The setting was the gorgeous House on The Hill. I designed Sarah's bouquet first to set the tone, and the rest would follow. We decided to incorporate red with yellow dahlias, craspedia, thistle, yellow and purple freesia, pink wax flowers, yellow solidago, Queen Ann’s Lace, purple and fuchsia stock and yellow ranunculus. The bridesmaids and the aisle markers wrapped in burlap gave the bride that simple and wild look she yearned for. The beautiful centerpieces matched perfectly and the reception was a hit!

The Client Says...

I used Mercedes Flowers for my wedding in March and it was nothing short of perfection! The flowers were very important to me and I met with several florists and went with Mercedes- so happy we did! We had a wildflower theme and the flowers were everything I envisioned and more. They were absolutely stunning! Every time I look at my wedding pictures I find myself just staring at all of the floral from the bouquets, the center pieces and other decorative touches. They truly were gorgeous and tied everything together. Our guests are still commenting on how unbelievably beautiful our flowers were. The entire experience with Mercedes was fantastic. From the first time we met to the day of and after. She is just a wonderful person to work with and she cares so much about her clients. I absolutely 100% without a doubt recommend using Mercedes flowers as your florist for any occasion.
