Featured Milwaukee Wedding-Diana & Kyle

Posted on by BelleFiori

Diana and Kyle were a blast. Currently living in Chicago, they were thrilled to be having their “destination” wedding in Milwaukee. It was the perfect spring day.

Diana and Kyle treated their guests to a unique experience showing off the architectural diversity Milwaukee has to offer by vowing their love at the gorgeous Villa Terrace, and celebrating with a reception at the quaint and modern space of The Hamilton.

It was a lovely contrast of urban elegance. Columns and lush gardens juxtaposed with raw cream city brick. The bridal bouquet echoed this theme with bold textures and grouped palettes of purple iris, orchids and stock, hot pink spray roses, and blue delphinium, softened just slightly by lavender tulips and a cascading traditional style. The bridesmaids had small loose textural clusters of the same flowers, perfectly complementing Diana’s look.

Check out out some gorgeous shots from their fabulous day!

Featured Milwaukee Wedding: Allison & Ben

Posted on by BelleFiori

We’re in the heart of wedding season here in Southeastern Wisconsin. Brides and grooms from all over the Milwaukee area are in and out of Belle Fiori daily planning their bouquets and floral arrangements. And when the weekend rolls around? Our florists are right there making sure all the gorgeous displays get where they need to be.

We look forward to updating you with wedding features throughout 2014 and we can’t wait to see all the gorgeous photos pouring in from the outstanding photographers selected by our couples.

Check out some images below from Allison and Ben’s downtown nuptials!

For Allison and Ben’s big day, Allison picked out a lovely light blue bridesmaids dress color, but knew that there weren’t many flowers that grow naturally in blue, so she decided to focus on texture for the bouquets. By pulling in cool hues with extra-large succulents as a focal points, we were able to work with her to create fantastic displays to complement her wedding day palette.

The succulents were accented with white hydrangea, vibrant green hypericum berries, grey broad-leaf dusty miller, and a unique burgundy foliage called agonis. The boutonnieres were a single succulent accented with eucalyptus seeds-perfect for the gentlemen’s attire.

Congratulations to Allison and Ben on their perfect day. Your wedding was spectacular and the Pfister was an excellent backdrop to your carefully selected florals!

Belle Fiori Local Feature: Ultimate Confections

Posted on by BelleFiori

At Belle Fiori, flowers are our passion, but who doesn’t LOVE chocolate? If you’re looking to send a little something extra as a part of your birthday, anniversary, or just-because gift, we suggest adding on these fabulous handmade chocolates by Ultimate Confections!

Inspired by an old family recipe for peanut brittle, Lori Murphy never imagined that she would run her own business. By experimenting with the peanut brittle recipe, she discovered that putting a bit of peanut butter on top of peanut brittle and dipping it into chocolate was a wonderful combination. Taking this classic brittle recipe a step further, she tried pecans in place of peanuts, smothered the pieces with caramel and then dipped this taste of heaven in chocolate creating turtle brittle. With this, in 1992, Ultimate Brittle was born.

Lori was encouraged by family and friends, and found tremendous support from various specialty markets and other corporate avenues to start her business, Ultimate Brittle. Soon after the incorporation, she began to experiment with various nuts, fruits, and cream centers, and different combinations of milk, dark and white chocolates, and found great success. Shortly after one year, the name was changed to Ultimate Confections to promote the ever-expanding line of chocolate creations.

For years, the home for Ultimate Confections was an industrial-equipped kitchen in a church basement. In the fall of 1995, Ultimate Confections found a new home in the heart of Milwaukee, Wisc., specifically in the Wauwatosa area.

Ultimate Confections’ business relationships and customer base has expanded through word-of-mouth and their committed participation at the Wisconsin and Minnesota State Fairs, local craft fairs, ethnic festivals, and the world’s largest and longest running music festival, Summerfest , right here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Ultimate Confections has received many Wisconsin State Fair Seal of Excellence awards for our gourmet hand-dipped chocolates from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, as well as recognition in local newspapers, media outlets and the magazine, Taste of Home.

Located on 68th Street in Wauwatosa, Ultimate Confections is home to award-winning gourmet, hand-dipped chocolates and proud to serve the greater Milwaukee area. To learn more about these incredible treats, visit them online by clicking here. You can also call Lori, the owner, at 414.778.0636 with any questions!

Bring Your Vision to Life-Schedule a Consultation with our Expert Florists

Posted on by BelleFiori

Last week, we featured a video noting some of the latest trends in wedding floral design. This week, we have a few reminders and tips for brides and grooms throughout the Milwaukee and Southeastern Wisconsin area. As a veteran of the wedding scene, our florists at Belle Fiori are always happy to guide couples feeling unprepared or overwhelmed by the wedding floral process.

Sitting down to thoroughly discuss your vision for your bridal bouquets and centerpieces is the first important step to planning your wedding flowers, which is why we offer complimentary consultations for all of our couples.

We also have a few other tips:

-Book your initial consultation 6 – 9 months before your wedding date.

-Have your ceremony and reception location finalized

-Have a good idea of your bridesmaid dress color

-Bring any photos, color swatches, textures, or inspirations that your have found

Our consultations typically last 1 – 1.5 hours. During that time we aim to connect with you and make your time worthwhile, therefore, we ask that you limit your entourage to the most important decision makers of your planning process (i.e. mom, groom, sister, wedding planner).

We know wedding planning can be intimidating, but at Belle Fiori we consider it our job to help make your day run as smoothly as possible. Not everyone is a flower expert, and that’s okay. We’re here to help, and we’d love to talk to you.

To schedule your complimentary consultation, call Belle Fiori today at 414-272-2234!
