Rose & Yoni ~ Sept 3rd


What a fun unique wedding this was! Rose & Yoni hired CME&F for both Day of Coordination & Floral services. I was so excited for this wedding all year for a couple of reasons, 1. It was at the Round Barn Farm in Red Wing which proved to be a beautiful unique location 2. The elements of their wedding spoke so clearly to who they are and were so much fun to decorate with 3. I got to work with orange & yellow's in their bouquet designs, I LOVE working with yellow in flowers 4. They are such a fun couple
Yoni records music and Rose comes from a Russian background which made for a eclectic group of friends and family. There were talented musicians everywhere and lots of Russian traditions, food and talk going on. I have never seen a kitchen as packed and yummy as the kitchen of the Round Barn B&B was that day!
The details that spoke to them and were most clever with the old cassette tapes as place cards, the thumbprint tree as the guest book, the old wagon as the gift spot, the old hankies and CD mix as the program were ceremony compliments. We decorated the barn with TONS & TONS of flowers, there were tin cans with sunflowers hanging in the opening in the barn, yellow paper flowers in every window sill, fun arrangements on each table, ceremony aisle lined with shepherds hooks and lanterns filled with full blooms and then anywhere we could fill flowers or artichokes we did. No space was undecorated! There was so much food everywhere the cocktail hour was covered with Russian spreads on the tables and yummy homemade sangria!
And then let's talk about the dessert table, I have NEVER seen a dessert table such as this one. We couldn't even put out all of the desserts until some were eaten without adding another 8 foot table. It was filled with wedding cake, macaroons, chocolate homemade cakes, pie pops, chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate dipped pretzels, more pastries than I could count, a fruit covered cake and an extra large fruit bowl. Oh and I forgot about the candy table for everyone to take home in their all you need is love bags!
For the bridal party flowers we did a mix of orange, yellow and pale pink ranunculus, billies, mums and dahlias! They were stunning against their yellow dresses!
Thank you so much Rose & Yoni for hiring CME&F for your planning & floral needs, I had an absolute blast working with you both and being part of such an amazing day and venue! I wish you both unending years of happiness, music and LOVE!

Amy & Bob ~ August 27th


I had so much fun working on both planning and flower designs with Amy & Bob on their beautiful garden ceremony and evening reception at Brit's. The intimate ceremony was held at the Japanese Garden in the Como Park. The weather and sunset could not have been more perfect for this evening ceremony. The celebration then continued at Brit's pub with a candlelit hors d'oeuvres reception.

We decorated the pub with tons of candles inside complimented with bright colored flowers especially on their fireplace. We did 2 sizes of lanterns with river rock and pillar candles on the outside patio area overlooking the lawn bowling, they were the perfect compliment for this space! For her bridal party flowers we did a mix of deep pink, purple and a splash of green, they complimented her black bridesmaids dresses and Bob's daughters pretty pink, purple and green dresses perfectly!

Congrats Bob & Amy, I had so much fun working with you as you are such a fun and warm couple! Many years of happiness to you both!
