Classic Country Wedding

Julia and Anthony were married at the Brookside Equestrian Center in Walnut- never even knew it was there and I went to College right over the hill- It is beautiful! If you love horses, rolling hills and rambling white fences - and don't want to have your wedding in Kentucky- this is the place for you! Julia wanted a sophisticated, elegant, yet casual design that would compliment the surroundings. We decided on multiple vintage jars and containers each with a different eclectic cluster of flowers in pale blushes, creams, greys and greens, accented with lots of candles. Enjoy the photos- Thanks to Stephanie Williams!

Cool Detail Shots!

A recent photo shoot that we did just proved to re-enforce my awe of flowers...the ordinary rose becomes an infinite rabbit hole.......the dahlia is a friendly little sunburst or even a crazy sea anemone in technicolor...

...Although I wasn't as familiar as I am now with the Lady Slipper orchid, when I was a kid I always imagined that there was a little fairy with the perfect size foot to fit into each Lady Slipper.......My clients are usually surprised when I tell them that these are tulips- just slightly, delicately tweaked a little bit. It is so interesting what details can be exposed and highlighted by just paying attention to each individual bloom...something that so easily can be overlooked in my day's busy schedule. This photo shoot truly inspired me and re-enforced my love for every little detail of my business.

Don't forget your Sweetheart!

I am sure everyone knows that Valentine's Day is right around the corner (just a friendly reminder to those who forgot!). Next Sunday is the big day and what is nicer than sending a custom arrangement to your sweetheart- it shows you thought ahead and no last minute reservations to a packed restaurant or a last minute card purchased to the local Rite Aid!

Give us a call to discuss options to the traditional long stem red roses (yes, we will have those, too!). A mixed Valentine color arrangement can offer more "bang for your buck" and last longer. Also, to our past couples, we keep records of your weddings guys- if you really want to score points with your little wifey poo call us and we will make an arrangement based on the flowers used for your wedding! How cool is that!
