The winner, recipient of a $50 Koehler & Dramm gift certificate and a Corsage/Boutonniere class at the Institute of Floristry is Maureen de Bruyn of de Bruyn Designs! Congratulations!
Wedding Photo Competition
This wedding design photo competition was the first of its kind sponsored by Koehler & Dramm Wholesale Florist. Along with the photograph portion of the competition, contestants wrote an essay describing the process of matching their designs to the wishes of the bride and groom and their chosen wedding theme. The Green Ambiance team in Avon, MN won a $1000 marketing package for their innovative designs, creating a lasting memory for the wedding couple. Congratulations!
