Wedding at Hyatt Union Station

We just wanted to share some pictures of a beautiful wedding we helped out with this past spring. Emily (Murnin) Tochtrop was a great bride to work with. We were fortunate enough to work with great vendors and a great venue as well. All Dressed in White coordinated this event and everything flowed together flawlessly. Check it out: (All photos courtesy of Koch Photography) The ceremony was held in one of the ballrooms and the reception was in the Grand …

Splashes of Color

There are always ways to brighten up your wedding color scheme with flowers. Whether used in moderation or as a main focus, bright, citrus colors are a fun look for any season. Here are some examples: Stephanie (Young) Margolis, who got married on a beautiful day in April, chose lots of bright colors for herself and for her bridesmaids. Hot pink and orange gerbera daisies popped against the sage green dresses. The bride’s bouquet was a mix of the bridesmaids …

What if I’m unsure about the flowers I selected?

Here at Sisters, we don’t work like a “normal” flower shop. When a bride meets with us, she is not meeting with someone who just takes an order, she is meeting with the team (Shelly & Emily) that will ultimately execute the design of all the flowers for her wedding. By the day of the wedding, we will have worked out details with multiple meetings and dozens of phone calls and e-mails. That’s why what occurred on April 26th was …

Recent Wedding Pictures by Lace

Here are some photos of one of our weddings from a couple of weeks ago. Rachel and Jim had an outdoor wedding at the beautiful Cafe DeMenil. Rachel carried calla lilies, Asiatic lilies, roses, and spray roses in shades of oranges and mango, accented by pearled stephanotis–all in a tear-dropped style bouquet. Jim’s boutonniere was a calla lily with pearled stephanotis. Both photos were taken by Gina at Lace. She has a great BLOG, too, so be sure to check …

“Ernestine, my bride, I love you so much…”

These were the words spoken by my 90-year-old grandfather last Sunday at 2:30pm. My grandmother and my cousin Sarah were each holding one of his hands. He passed away at 3:05. I am so thankful that he was able to say these words to my ailing grandmother, his wife of over 66 years. He was smart and alert right to the end (he was sitting up in bed reading the Sunday paper that very morning!). As my children and I …

9th Street Abbey

Here are some springy pictures of a wedding we did at 9th Street Abbey in Soulard. The wedding was on April 26th, when the cherry blossoms were in full bloom!! These are shots of the whole room from the balcony above. Two different arrangements were used to decorate the guest tables. One was all cherry blossom branches and the other was a submerged green cymbidium orchid with the bride’s candles. The overall look of the room showed the bride’s style …

Grand Hyatt at Union Station

Here are a few pics from one of our most recent weddings at Grand Hyatt Union Station: Tall and short centerpieces with all white flowers were used. Tulips, hydrangea, snapdragons, curly willow and pheasant feathers filled these tall cylinders. Shorter clusters of vases with similar white flowers balanced out the other tables. Alternating cluster vases were used to line the middle of the head table. As an extra special treat, the guests were able to find their place cards on …

Flat Tires & Fire Alarms- The Adventures of Sisters Flowers

Here at Sisters, we pride ourselves in not only our flowers, but on our ability to be organized and on time for every event. We always have back-up plans in case of slow traffic, weather-related issues, etc. But a recent Saturday brought up two unusual new scenarios none of us had ever experienced!! When leaving for our last two set-up/deliveries of the day, we discovered that one of the vans (Emily and David’s), filled with reception flowers, had a flat …

Spring has SPRUNG at Sisters!

Here is a little “sneak peak” at all the beautiful spring flowers that we’ve been doing for our brides the last couple of weeks. We are all so ready for SPRING and it shows! Here is one of our brides, Erin (Wille) Watkins and her wedding party. She chose black magic roses with stephanotis for herself, and mixed bouquets of pink gerbera daisies, red roses, and purple lisianthus for her girls. All the colors really pop against the black dresses!! …
