Wedding season

In Portland, summer is definitely wedding season. We wait all year long for our gorgeous summer and so do Portland brides! Wedding season is already in full force at Sammy’s Flowers. Here’s a couple of pictures of a beautiful wedding ceremony swag we created for a late spring wedding. And soon, we will begin posting pictures from our summer weddings. Until then...

About Flowers: garden roses

When was the last time you smelled a rose and it had a scent? Was it in your grandmother’s garden? Garden style roses evoke a nostalgic feel and are popular choices for weddings. Their signature rounded shape with layers of petals is often referred to as "cabbage" shaped. Varieties like Vitality, O’Hara, Yves Piaget are popular due to their strong fragrance. Other varieties such as the Juliet, Toulouse Lautrec and Piano roses are prized for their intense color. Shown here are: Juliet, Vitality, and  the red Piano Rose.
