What a setting for your vows. This classic gazebo is dreamily draped in Majolica spray roses and garlands of smilax vine with apple and dogwood blossoms by Ashley Fox Designs. Bavaria Downs, a lovely new venue just west of the Twin Cities, serves as a serene backdrop.

Greet dinner guests with this tablescape boasting sumptuous centerpieces of dahlias, lisianthus, roses, ranunculus, snapdragon, foxglove and lilacs from Pristine Floral. The place settings from Rudy’s Event Rentals glow with golden highlights, set off by silk napkins and a rustic cheesecloth table runner.

Palest pinks, greens and lavenders make this structured arrangement a stand-out. Artfully combining ranunculus, roses, astilbe, dusty miller, Israeli ruscus, snowberry, silver dollar eucalyptus and silver bell eucalyptus pods, Blommönster ties it all together with a lilac satin ribbon.

Step through these ornate gates and wait for the magic to come. Kindred Blooms adds a soft touch with vines of water oak entwined with dahlias, clematis, snowberry and hellebores, all in dreamy shades of pink and café au lait.

What’s more perfect for your big day than this perfectly stylish bouquet from Lilia Flower Boutique? Bright pops of pink, peach and lavender add whimsy to a delightfully casual bouquet. Among these exotic blooms are Paris japonica, café au lait dahlias, Hanoi Clooney blush ranunculus, and blossoms—aptly named, we might add—such as kiss-me-over-the-garden-gate, blushing bride protea, and, of course, passion vine.

An intimate table setting shimmers with this centerpiece of blooms from Poppy Lane. White lisianthus and dahlias are joined by hellebores, lavender, coral berry and KoKo Loco garden roses. Escort cards and menus designed by Shasta Bell Calligraphy guide your guests, who can sup on delicate fig and pear on tasteful tableware from Rudy’s Event Rentals, all styled by Blush & Whim.
