We love incorporating locally grown blooms in our designs during the summer growing months. We visit the farmer’s market weekly to purchase and document varieties from Pastures of Plenty Farm in Longmont.
Why document? We are often asked by brides what local product is available for their event and having photographs from our weekly visits enables us to plan what we may be able to incorporate that compliments their wedding date, palette and style.
Why choose local? We prefer to support local farmers and to reduce the carbon footprint of how far flowers travel to arrive at our studio for use.
Here are a few visuals of the available June and July blooms including sunflowers, scabiosa, lilies, crocosmia, coreopsis, solidago, cosmos, phlox, lupine, veronica, feverfiew, yarrow, caterbury bells, gypsophila, red hot pokers, delphinium, amaranthus and peonies. In addition to the farm blooms, we can rely on a local wholesaler, Stevens and Son, who grows asiatic lilies, asters, freesia, iris, snapdragons, alstro, sunflowers and dahlias.
We have recently had the pleasure of using the farm blooms for several wedding orders and at the end of this gallery is an example of a bright Colorado-inspired bridal bouquet created for a early July Vail wedding.
