DIY Floral Beach Cruiser

Beach cruisers make me happy but beach cruisers decorated with the prettiest florals? Those have me doing high kicks. We first fell in love with this floral infused bicycle here and have since been dreaming of crafting a get away bike of our very own. The Little ThingsSweet Annie Floral Design and Ruth Eileen Photography came to the rescue with this simple DIY that will leave you doing high kicks and maybe a few jazz hands too.

From The Little ThingsA custom, floral laden beach cruiser just might be the ultimate “getaway vehicle” for any beach celebration, and they’re easier to put together than you may think! Be prepared for envious stares as you’re riding off into the sunset on your own personalized floral beauty!


Beach cruiser
Blank hanging sign
Squeeze paint
Flowers with thick, sturdy bases, such as roses, dahlias, carnations, zinnias
Floral clippers
Floral wire, clipped into 6” pieces
Zip ties


step-1  Start with an awesome beach cruiser- preferably one that you grabbed off of Craigslist and fixed up to suit your color palette (like we did)!

step-2 Use your squeeze paint to write something simple and sweet on your hanging sign, such as “hitched,” “Mr. and Mrs.,” or “forever.” Be sure to practice writing with the squeeze paint first!

step-3 While your sign is drying, place your basket on the bike and secure it with zip ties. Fill your bike basket with florals until it’s bursting at the seams, and use another zip tie (or floral wire) to hang your sign.

step-4 Take your flowers out of water and clip them so only the base of the flower remains. Thread the floral wire through the base of each flower.

step-5 Take your wired flowers and place them up against the wheel spokes, starting from the inside of the wheel and working outward. Wrap the wire together and around the spokes as needed so the flowers are affixed and will stay in place throughout the day.

step-6 Once complete, clip off any extra floral wire peeking through, and you’re finished and ready to ride off in the best beach cruiser ever!

Beacon Hill Proposal Film

For those of you who haven’t yet visited Boston, let me tell you that a stroll through Beacon Hill is an absolute must. Think cobblestone streets, historic brick buildings, and gaslights at every turn. Basically, it’s the most charming place a guy could ever propose, and we’re about to watch it happen thanks to Harris Films. Grab a tissue and press play.

From Harris FilmsThere are few things we enjoy more than capturing the raw emotion of a proposal. There is something so different about it that really draws you in.

Vince proposed to Lauren on a quiet street in Beacon Hill on their way to dinner. We had him mic’d and captured the incredibly beautiful moment as it unfolded. As if the proposal wasn’t enough when they arrived to dinner her family was waiting for her after traveling all the way from St. Louis.

Shortly after the proposal we shot their engagement session along the Charles River and Esplanade, one of their favorite spots to spend time on the weekends. Vince and Lauren were such a fun and easy going couple to work with. We really enjoyed getting to know them and are so grateful they choose us to share this special time in their life with.

Boston Harbor Wedding Film

True story: I walk through the Marriott Long Wharf all the time while gallivanting through downtown Boston. It’s at the very center of all the city’s action, and setting to this glamorous summer affairPatrick Howell Films captured the lovefest, and I highly suggest you kick back and press play.


From Patrick Howell FilmsMeet Amber & Suneel. These two Floridians invited us to both Film and photograph their amazing Boston harbor wedding and film their save the date engagment video. This Wedding was a fusion between the Eastern (Indian/Hindu) and Western(Christian) cultures and religions. The amount detail and care these two took to make the wedding day such a perfect masterpiece was unbelievable. From the gift bags in the rooms, to the mid night snack (which was the bomb!!!) these two did it all. We can not wait to film in Boston again so we can see these love birds!

Their love story…Suneel and Amber were two ambitious Master of Health Administration graduate students at the University of Florida. Suneel caught Amber’s attention after an evening of de-stressing from their first semester of final exams when he chivalrously and tirelessly attempted to retrieve items that were ‘stolen’ by their cab driver. Friendship began to blossom during late night study sessions, ‘professional networking’ over cocktails and Finance tutoring. That friendship bloomed into love and the ability to restrain these feelings for career development was quickly overcome. Amber and Suneel knew their love was worth nurturing so after graduation they sold their belongings, packed up their cars and drove 1300 miles to Maine. Eighteen feet of snow and 333 days later they moved to Boston, slowly making their way back to Florida. Then on their three-year anniversary, March 9th 2013, Suneel proposed to Amber under a gazebo on the water in Jamaica.
