as promised ...

Rachel & ker 9.12.09

this pic hardly does this very unique bouquet justice! cant wait to see the real pics with the actual bride holding it. its a lot bigger then it looks as well. oh the perspective of a lens ... two tones of english garden roses, signature black callas and monkey tails wrapped in brown satin and classic pearl line! oh oh and crespedia!

rachels aisle was lined with classic shepherd hooks and pomanders done in a natural style with variety of greens, whites and browns.

centerpieces in short rectangular vases wrapped in cork with a unique variety of flowers and color!

throw bouquet ... unique as well and of course doubling at another table!

bad habits

i have become so reliant on the pro photogs for pictures that i have become reluctant to use my own. but sometimes the wait for those is just simply to lengthy and out of my control. you readers deserve more than that right? you'll suffer through my better then average but not better then a photog images right?

so this image is from rachel's event last week at log haven. i like this picture a lot because the focus is this english garden rose 'juliet'. english garden roses have been the focus of the last two big events here at studio stems. i have decided that if anyone every asked me what kind of flower i would be if i had to identify myself with one it would be this ... this exact color and variety of english garden rose. its plump yet beautiful. it also has more layers then an onion i swear and what better way to describe me! its also just another sneak peak but is my image which means ill get to photoshopping and get you a real post.

a few other things to watch for ... ashley larsens event, rachels event @ log haven, brittany's amazing la caille event, breauna's stunning experience, a few bridal sittings and a few other small but very nice weddings.

p.s. couch is gone.

heart breaking

for those of you that follow my family blog you know i own this sweeet vintage couch. its 9 feet 4 inches. very antique but in great condition. pattern on fabric is amazing. i have held on with a tight grip through the move but in reality this couch will not fit and work in my home no matter how i try. it saddens my heart but i must part with this beut and enjoy smaller and simpler items i possess. i am posting it here because i think this is an extremely valuable photo shoot piece. i know you photo peeps read this blog ... well ok i dont know but i hope you do. so any of you readers out there interested email at with your bid.

organized chaos at studio stems

there is a sure air of chaos here. but its good chaos. studio stems has officially moved to our permanent provo pad. its still under construction (so please continue to excuse the dust) but its getting there slow but sure and though the unpacking is nauseating i am getting it done. i am excited to have a bigger work space and more storage for inventory. we still have been busy busy besides the move a few brilliant weddings have come and gone as well as some really amazing creative opportunities. like this one you see above. Tessa @ utah bride & groom mag asked me to create a fall bouquet for their mag shoot. i heart opps like this. it lets me reach way outside the box. excuse the picture. its been edited (poorly at that) on my new laptop that i still dont know how to use and of course it was taken by me not ideal!

we are still taking fall bookings and dont forget about our deals in play!
