Robin's Nest on San Juan Island created these beautiful floral pieces. Flowers, leaves and stems plucked right from Robin's own garden were added to the pieces. These stunning and unique arrangements show the abundance and beauty of the natural vegetation in the Pacific Northwest.

Gown: White Dress
We see Quartz Rose. Bridal dresses with pale pink layers and tones. 3-D floral details, bare shoulders on dresses and sheer decorative ponchos layering over the top. We find variety in shaped and textures. Sexy boned corsets also charmed this years collections for the brides that dare. A swing of floral eye stopper by La Tulipe.
We have incredible embellishment from Julie Schnoll Jewelry. She used vintage pieces and makes them modern.
Bridesmaids dazzle in sequins. They sparkle all night and photograph like a dream.
Gown: White Dress
The Pantone color of the year is Greenery. We have that in out green goblets but we went so much further. It's the mix not the match! Relics Vintage Rentals put together a virtual kaleidoscope of color for this one of a kind table. Tying in sheer Rose Quartz plates and popping with fresh blue and yellow. Delightful and unforgettable. They go beyond interest to unforgettable. Furnishing from Relics make every guest feel special. Vintage chandeliers make everyone feel a star. Flowers by Belle Fiori.
Our blushy tones and pinks whites and creams hold their own and used in small whimsical vases are playful on our table. Arrangements by Bella Fiori.
Gown: Gigi's of Mequon
A grand royal gown with embroiders flowers and a slim floating silhouette Tulip Dress from White Dress with sheer pink flowers gently collecting on the back. One of my favorites- a dress with so many layers of tool a small child could get lost in it.

PHOTOGRAPHY BY ARTIST GROUP
Wind Swept Goddess
Makeup: "OOOoooh! Love this one! I like to match lips and cheeks, it's like a handbag-shoe thing for me. I used Ben Nye Creme Foundation in 'P-101 Light Auguste' on her lips & cheeks" - Maggie
Hair: "From a ponytail this look can be achieved easily with just a few good hair pins and some strong hold hairspray like Elnett. Start with the ends of the pony in your hand and wrap and roll around your fingers until you reach the head and secure where you like. Finishing styling with fingers….and spray!" - Gina
Grace + Andrew
Amazing decor at Milwaukee Country Club. A blue and white theme inspired by a painting done by Grace's grandmother. The lined tent by Canopies Events is illuminated with thousands of tiny lights. The entire space is filled with beautiful floral by Esther at Impressions. Photography by Artist Group.

NEW TRENDS IN HAIR
For this look hair Gina first used a fine tooth combs end to make a deep side part. Next to add more of a retro feel, back-comb the crown and spritz with Redken's 'Quick Tease Spray', gather hair into a low pony at the nape of the neck and secure. Tease the pony slightly for added drama and use your finishing cream, paste or stick to tame fly-aways.

"The inspiration was to keep it clean and light. So I skipped foundation entirely and used a luminizer instead. I opened up the eye a bit using a white eye pencil in the bottom inner rim. I like Kevin Aucoin's white eye pencil because it's creamy and soft to apply into such a delicate spot"- Maggie
Products used: NARS Luminous Moisiture Cream / Cle de Peau concealer in 'Ivory'
Rhonda and Travis
We adore this beautiful engagement session. Rhonda's love for fashion, dance and Travis are celebrated in these whimsical images. This couple worked closely with Artist Group photography and Wide Eyed Beauty to turn this session into a magazine shoot. Rhonda's concept was to tie in iconic Milwaukee locations with fashion and fun. Stay tuned to see how this couple brings their amazing sense of style to the wedding!
Paige and Nick
get married at Whistling Straits Golf Course / Reception: Ozaukee Country Club / Photography: Artist Group / Wedding Dress: Miss Ruby / Bridesmaids Dressed: Stone Manor / Tuxes: Men's Wearhouse / Florist: Michelle Hobbins / Cake: Delicately Delicious / Hair: Heather Fox at About Face Salon / Makeup: Lori Lindholm at LoLo Aesthetics
Paige and Nick put so much thought and care into every detail of this beautiful wedding. Whistling straights made a perfect backdrop with golden grasses waving over rolling hills with a peek of lake Michigan at the horizon. Love the old hollywood style brides maid dresses and classic mens tux's with bow ties. They carried the gold into the reception with a custom cake by Delicately Delicious.
Modern Table Decor
This beautiful table brings together clean modern lines with organic elements. This combination is warm and inviting in this beautiful penthouse at The Moderne.
Janelle at Evenement pulls a vintage table painted a glossy white with lucite chairs and table platform elevating gorgeous orchids and white new tulips by Esther at Impressions.. The look is grounded with two chocolate wing back chairs. Flatware in bone and luxe sheepskins contrast wonderful square plates. This look stands alone but also plays harmoniously with the vista. Guests at this event were enchanted. Great job ladies!
Think a centerpiece to the room. These glorious confections are a decor statement as well as the grand finale to a wedding feast. Elizabeth's Cake Couture shows us embellishes galore with her one of a kind cakes. A faux cake creation gives the reception a wonderful focal point even if you're serving an alternative dessert.
Another big trend is watercolor wedding cakes. This modern use of washed color over the cake is a wonderful way to tie in the colors of the room.
We launch AG high style for the Milwaukee style obsessed bride with a shoot celebrating the summer of 2016! We used a color palette from cobalt blue to deep navy, Milwaukee wedding photographers at Artist Group created this lovely shoot. Our passion for the high low trend blends perfectly with modern and organic layers. Lush and lovely dresses from Zita Bridal float like a dream through our beloved North Shore location Dream Apple Farm. You can rent these ruins for a unique wedding pictorial on the big day! Only the best in menswear by Harleys.

La Tulipe provided a loose, renaissance/organic inspired composition with dahlias and roses in rich tones mixed with a variety of foliages and apples which make a connection to the venue.
Bring in the blue. We used a color pallet from shimmering gold to dark navy. Our gifted local vendors brought this vision to reality with this menu by Paperwhites, Badgley Mischka's Jeannie Crystal Trim open toe shoe and the fantastic floral creation by La Tulipe. Relics Vintage Rentals set the stage for our fantasy with their luscious farm table, Glenda white velvet thrown chairs and decor.
The Mirela statement tassel earrings are oversized soft silk ivory tassels from Turkey with gold accents. The Tsura necklace, like its name, "light of dawn" is a statement piece that has a beautiful reflective shimmer due to its Quartz cluster on leather with wooden and metal chain accents. The Drina cuff is a beautiful one of a kind piece of white Quartz on a brass cuff.
Have some fun with what you wear with a navy paisley patterned jacket from Robert Graham accented with a tone on tone paisley shirt and bow tie from David Donahue available at Harleys.
