  • Alright today we are talking ceremony flowers... And my fav few tips for stretching your wedding floral budget a bit further. Ready class? Here we go⠀

    -- Go easy. One focal piece typically does the trick. An arbor, statement urns, maybe it’s petals in the aisle, maybe an overgrown aisleway. A bit of flair here and there, but babes - everyone is looking at you two. I mean look at these two? Can you possibly look at anything else? ⠀

    -- I know that in 1981 it was really cute to do some aisle markers and decor, but please don't think that spending a tiny bit for a bunch of eucalyptus on the chair ends is going to make your day or have a major impact in your design. If you're doing aisle decor because its what you think you have to do - release that. But.....⠀

    --If you're gonna go big, lets. go. big. One of my favorite things I've ever designed was a Mandap - I also love Chuppahs - but if people are gonna stand around in a semi circle for 20 minutes and smile at you and Aunt Barb is annoyingly using her ipad as a camera- let's not go crazy. ⠀

    Ceremonies are beautiful and emotional and amazing. The flowers can be a huge part of it - or you can do none at all. Remember it’s your day. 😘 ⠀

  • Cast birch bark rings with Michigan stones. All available on my website ready to ship in gift packaging. Kona Dolomite is a fossilized algae found in the UP, and one of the oldest rocks on earth at 2.4 billion years old! It has beautiful light pink and dark purple coloring reminiscent of marble. Green Jasper found in Lake MI, and a well saturated Leland Blue stone.

  • This is your Sunday remind that when planning your wedding do whatever floats your boat!
    .
    All great puns aside, plan a wedding that makes you and your significant others heart happy. If you want to have 6 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen-DO IT. If you want to see each other before the ceremony-DO IT. If you skip the garter and bouquet toss-DO IT.
    .
    Family and friends have the best intentions, but at the end of the day, this is your wedding. Make it magical.

  • Cropping photos and taking measurements for a couple hours before I list the birch bark collection. Love these little woodsy dangle earrings! Cast birch bark, twigs, and buds with Chrysocolla from the UP. DM to purchase.

  • Who should you have as your bridesmaids?
    .
    You should have a tribe that is supportive, helpful, and will listen to you ramble on and on about your wedding. You should have a tribe that wants to make sure you have the best day ever. You should have a tribe that makes me laugh and eases stress (instead of creating more). .
    If you are considering someone that you don't really want, but feel like you need to have in the wedding party...well just don't have them as a bridesmaid.
    .
    This is your day, this is your BEST DAY EVER, and these women standing by your side are not just bridesmaid--they are women of awesomeness. ;)
    .
    Tag your bridesmaid below to let them know how awesome they are!

  • Wedding season. ⠀
    Summer.⠀
    Tiny season.⠀
    Christmas at Sweetwater⠀
    Workshops.⠀
    Done. All of it. I'm officially 'finished' for the year.⠀

    No matter how many things i've designed- this 100% "Kalin's Half Assed Cutting Garden" grown bouquet w/ some special additions of "S*** I picked along the road" still reigns supreme in my book. 2 years later.⠀

    You see when We take breaks from the craziness to really sit and think - the best and craziest and biggest dreams are born. ⠀

    I remember making this, standing on my parent's driveway y'all. No joke. I was on a break from weddings for a few weeks and this happened. Because when you relax and let your brain just breathe and your heart sorta calm down and your cortisol return to normal (shoutout Ashwaganda) amazing things happen. ⠀

    So let the brainstorming season commence. The slow, intentional, slower, get in shape, book the clients, hire the squad, pitch the insane ideas to Matt season begin. ⠀

    Happy Saturday. We did it. You were here for so much of it. Holy shit. Remember when we built the cooler? Dug the trench? finished the tiny? Started wedding season? The lavender died? Survived wedding season? Had Camp Sweetwater? Hosted workshops where you came and had fun? Sold trees? Made more wreaths? ⠀

    thanks for being here.⠀
    I'm gonna rest now. you should too. ⠀
