While setting up for Kristen and Bradley’s wedding, one of my assistants asked if delivering the bouquets was my favorite part of the day. Truthfully, it’s sometimes.

During 2018, I was listening to my favorite podcasts (SLOW Flowers, for anyone interested) and the host and designer being interviewed were talking about a series of photo shoots she had designed at the same venue but during each season to show what flowers and foliages are available […]

A Fall Wedding with Cool Colors and Succulents

I love succulents. They have been trending for several years and I hope the trend doesn’t end. I love the texture they add and many varieties available. Keri and Drew’s mountain themed wedding reception this past Saturday was filled with texture. The couple married earlier in the year in Colorado and came back home for […]
