Entries in cori cook floral design (55)



I cannot say enough thanks to David Gaston of Gaston Photography for taking these photos.  He and Sarah, from Hotel Monoco, assured me I needed to put a pic of myself up on my website.  So we scheduled a date to do a quick photoshoot, got rained out once (so Colorado as I am learning!), rescheduled, and finally got er' done (: Tex even got some of the photo-shoot in action!

Thanks, David, for the great pics!  


The Rocky Mountain Bridal Show

In one weekend, one of my best friends flew in from Cali to visit, I did my first bridal show, and my first nephew was born!  It was a crazy weekend, but a great one!  When I found out my sister's due date was 10 days before my bridal show, I had a little feeling that with my luck, she would have him on the day of the bridal show!  And she almost did!  Grant Lawson Powell was born the on April 25, 2009, a healthy and beautiful baby (And I am convinced he is smarter, better, and more handsome than any baby I know)!  

The next day, with the help of one of my most dearest friends, Morgan, (who flew in from Cali to help me with the bridal show!) and my amazing husband, we did the Rocky Mountain Bridal Show.  But having a booth at the show of course was not enough, so we also did all the bouquets for the runway show (:  So our style!  Anyway, the show was an absolute blast for several reasons.  

1.  Morgan is one of my favorite people in the world.  But beyond that, she is incredibly creative, talented, and gifted.  She helped me design my booth and of course all the flowers.  I loved designing with her because it reminds me of the good ol' days when I would con her into helping me do weddings and events and it would be a crazy furry of flowers and fun!  We always have fun when we do this stuff and she always makes everything better.

2.  My husband was and is always a gift.  When I wanted to peek in on the runway show, of course he was there when I got back, faithfully talking to brides about peonies and ranunculus.  And of course the brides loved him because, well, who doesn't?

3.  I got to meet a lot of great vendors.  Some favorite booths were Pink Dahlia Designs (a new friend and fabulous florist), The Curtis Hotel, and JS Design Custom (an amazing invitation and paper business).

Below are some pics from the show and of my handsome new nephew.  Enjoy (:


Nicole & Mike's Wedding

Nicole and Mike's wedding was an honor to be a part of for several reasons! But here are the main ones: First, Nicole is one of my very best friends in the world. We have been friend's for 8 years through high school, college, and beyond. I adore her family and have enjoyed watching her romance with Mike! Second: Nicole has killer style! She had vision for a beautiful peacock blue bridesmaid dress with contrasting orange flowers. The gorgeous girl in the photo below is Alli, her sister, and another best bud of mine.

Enjoy the rich colors and unique use of textures we used for her flowers including oranges, peacock feathers, dahlias, mokara orchids, and cockscomb.  Congrats Nicole and Mike!
