Wedding at Mad River Barn, Flowers by Alison Ellis of Floral Artistry

June Wedding at Mad River Barn

It was a beautiful (and warm!) June day for Hannah and Kofi’s wedding at Mad River Barn. This was my first time working at Mad River Barn and it is absolutely awesome. The setting is beautiful, the owner and staff were so friendly, and the venue is a fabulous balance of outdoor/indoor which is so

Blush Pink And White Wedding At The Coach Barn

June is often one of my busiest months as a floral designer, but last June might have also been my prettiest June yet! I shared this beautiful wedding that also took place at The Coach Barn last June and today I’m following that up with another Shelburne Farms wedding. A palette of blush pink and white with

Beautiful June Wedding At The Coach Barn at Shelburne Farms

June weddings are classic and a wedding at The Coach Barn at Shelburne Farms is not only classic, but it’s quintessential Vermont. I am so head-over-heels for this wedding and these flowers (and this couple….and the bride’s mom!…and the wedding planner…and the photographer who got the shot above with the cows!…and the caterer). Some of my

Fall Wedding Flowers

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” -Albert Camus Fall weddings really do feel like a breath of fresh air when a busy summer season turns to autumn. I absolutely adore this photo my bride, Gabriella, shared with me from her wedding on Saturday at Whiteface Country Club. Two of Us

August Wedding in Vermont at The Ponds

By now it may be obvious that I L-O-V-E a white, pink, peach and burgundy palette. I mean love it. The addition of deep plum/burgundy takes a classic wedding palette and just adds a touch of contrast and depth. Susanna and Andreas were married this August in Burlington, VT and then headed up to The

Stowe Wedding at Topnotch Resort

June weddings mean that peonies at their peak. Meredith and Jonathan’s wedding at Topnotch Resort in Stowe featured peonies, roses, ranunculus, sweet peas, lisianthus, freesia, rice flower, hydrangea and mock-orange & lady’s mantle from my garden. I’ll share 2 shots of the bridal bouquet…first, a view from the front and then, a view from the

Colorful Summer Wedding In Stowe, Vermont

A burst of color is a welcome addition to any summertime wedding and the colors for Leah and Mike’s wedding at Stowehof are so fun, bold and bright. The bride was very clear that she wanted color, but she did not want it to look “childish”. (A completely valid concern when choosing colors.) With a mix

Romantic, Unkempt Style At The Round Barn

I don’t often get the chance to design in a peach, white, pink and lavender palette, but when I do, I always love it. There’s something about a soft lavender that really works when added to the more traditional wedding palette of white, blush and peach. Lauren & Kevin’s July wedding was filled with thoughtful details

Vermont Wedding Flowers, Sophisticated palette

Sophisticated Elegance: Vermont Wedding Flowers

I LOVE this wedding. When the bride presented this color palette to me almost a year ago, I was tickled. I could not wait to design the flowers for Trista and Mike’s destination wedding at The Mountaintop Inn. This couple is simply too cool. Their flowers reflect a sophisticated elegance that’s both romantic, yet non-traditional.
