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. Some times I can sense stress or high emotions in the room and I know that it is best to leave the flowers and quickly leave to let […]

Incorporating Blue into Weddings

When a bride tells me they want to have blue in their wedding, I admit it makes me feel a little anxious. The reason being–there are hardly any blue flowers. Thistle, delphinium, and hydrangea–that’s it. If one of those flowers doesn’t fit your look, well… You are out of luck. Luckily, delphinium fit Austyn’s look […]

Mauve is back! Those of you who remember the mauve of the ’80s may be asking why but this is mauve in a new way. The warm, rosy tone mixes beautifully with fall colors and gives a more cozy feel from the blush tones we see in spring and fall. We played off the mauve […]

A Classic White Wedding at Farmer and Frenchman

There is nothing like classic white! Hydrangeas, roses, and greenery are sure to make you smile when you look back years from now. Farmer and Frenchman is a beautiful backdrop to it all, too. Due to rain, the ceremony was held inside but the space is still beautiful with the rustic wood, crystal chandeliers, and […]

Did you know that there are many, many varieties of zinnias? They come in different heights, shapes, and colors. Double blooms, single blooms, cactus style… There is a […]

Blush pinks have been trending for the past several years, especially when paired with white or burgundy. However, I started to see a shift last year.
