Friends gathered on a perfect summer day in one of Cincinnati’s most beautiful parks to celebrate Katie + Chris’ marriage. Katie’s bridesmaids wore powder blue dresses and matching pearl drop earrings. Bouquets were thick with white roses, pops of greenery and silvery lambs ear and brunia. The celebration was beautifully captured by White Lotus Studios.
Sarah was radiant in her beaded gown and stylish birdcage veil surrounded by her lovely bridesmaids. Florals were bright white peonies, spring pink roses, little buds, and a spectrum of greens for the beautiful May wedding day. Ceremony and reception were held at Bell Event Centre photographed by Lauren Lee Photography.
Summer brights for a 60’s inspired birthday party! White lanterns and cafe lights were suspended from the rafters, cheery floral linens spread over a mix of red, blue, and yellow gingham table cloths came together to create a bright, joyous atmosphere.
The floral arrangements were a summer mix of dwarf creeping daisies, white daisies, billy balls, gem toned yarrow, blue thistle, and hydrangea. Lindsey Baer Events planned the afternoon beautifully. Photography by Amber Bridges Studio.

A wonderful evening with a group of fantastic ladies at The Fig Leaf in Hyde Park! Kristen led the workshop imparting her expertise as we built stunning arrangements using white and pink dahlias, rosehip branches, aubergine scabiosia, geranium leaf, eucalyptus, and rich pale brown roses. We used a mix of foraged and local florals including a pampas grass whose feathery texture was a hit with everyone.
There was no shortage of unique greenery from geranium leaf to chocolate Queen Anne’s Lace to add texture and interest to our beautiful arrangements. We hope to see you at one of our upcoming workshops at The Fig Leaf!
We spent the afternoon working with a unique color and texture palette for a wedding reception at The Renaissance Hotel in Cincinnati. Among the eucalyptus and sedum were milky mauve and cream roses, dazzling white hydrangeas, and snapdragons whose blooms were the deep wine of cherry skin. The rose whose bloom is a vortex of blush is called ‘Constance’, a favorite at our studio.
Hand in hand Caitlin and Matt...
. . . walked the lawn and gardens of Cincinnati's Taft Museum of Art on an absolutely gorgeous late spring day. Caitlin and Matt's wedding ceremony and reception took place behind the Taft in the garden, a beautifully tended landscape of trees and flowers.
We created a climbing floral arch using a large tree as an armature for the exchange of vows which tied in with the Taft's "TWISTED" installation sculpture by artist Patrick Dougherty on the front lawn.
Guests dined outdoor under the Taft's large garden tent. White billowy draping and warm cafe lights created a beautiful ceiling.
Delft blue patterned linens, stationery, and glasses enhanced the garden setting. Floral arrangements included elegant white peony, roses, stock, clematis, with subtle pops of violet and lots of greenery.

Fragrant pink roses and frilly white peonies...
. . . tucked into layers of greenery brought the garden indoors to fill the former nave of what is now the Monastery Event Center in Mount Adams. Soft pinks, creamy whites and emerald foliage seemed to bloom from every nook and cranny in the historic space during Sarah and David's afternoon wedding reception.
One of our favorite details is the escort card case. A beautifully finished vintage card catalogue was reborn as a gorgeous welcome display for escort cards. We tucked fresh white stock, roses, lisianthus, handfuls of green tendrils and foliage into the sturdy, dark wooden drawers until it looked like something from a dream.
Sugar Realm created a stunning tiered cake with blooming pastel sugar flowers that added another level of artistic beauty to the celebration. What an honor to have been a part of Sarah and David's wedding story!

Summery orange roses, bright yellow craspedia, soft pink Japanese asters, and sunflowers were just a few of the beautiful flowers we arranged at our first Flower Foundations Workshop at The Fig Leaf in Hyde Park Square. Stay tuned for our next workshop coming up in September!
What happens when a wedding planner gets to plan her own wedding? Monica Gaddis had already established herself at Viva Bella Events when she got engaged to her future husband Brandon and started comparing color swatches, sampling cake, and trying on gowns. Monica + Brandon's romantic winter wedding at Cincinnati's Rhinegeist brewery was a gorgeous mix of deep berry reds, tropical and soft pinks, milky white and lots of fresh greenery. Garlands, chandeliers, and the warm glow of hundreds of strung lights softened the industrial rawness of the brewery.
Monica + Brandon exchanged vows in a ceremony in the round. The space was a perfect juxtaposition of softness and time worn edginess with a wall of sheer draping suspended like a waterfall in a room whose brick walls were mortared by men who lived over a century ago.
For the reception the draping was transformed from a solid wall into several elegant tie backs that added an inviting and romantic ambiance to the room, catching and reflecting the various types of lighting. We are honored to have been a part of Monica and Brandon's gorgeous day!

Pink macarons, creamy roses and peonies, gold beaded chargers, and sequined linens only begin to hint at the textured loveliness of Jamie + Jeff's spring wedding day.
Vows were exchanged in East Walnut Hills' St. Francis de Sales Church followed by an elegant reception downtown Cincinnati at The Center.
Jamie was beautiful in her white mermaid style gown with beaded belt and veil. Her bridesmaids wore barely blush dresses in mixed necklines and cuts. White bouquets included roses, peonies, and hydrangeas for a rounded, neat look.
Reception tables were set with a variety of textured floor-length linens. Round and rectangular tables were covered with tiny opal white and champagne sequined cloths with ribboned white satin on the long, family style head table that sat over 20 guests. Jamie + Jeff sat in a small loveseat with their closest friends. Guests sat on silver chiavari chairs.
The floral palette was soft white, creams, and several shades of pink. Full floral arrangements with roses and peonies reflected the abundance of the spring season.
A lively mix of tall and short clear glass centerpieces added a glamorous touch to The Center's contemporary space of high ceilings, hardwood floors, and crisp, clean walls.
Gold beaded chargers hinted at the gold polka dot stationery, dinner menus, and layered chevron patterned wedding cake. Gold votives and gilt bowls were clustered around for an overall dreamy, elegant, and perfectly Queen City wedding day.
