Some laugh when I talk about flower recipes. Having a recipe for pieces in an event is a very common industry practice. Something that is different about us versus some other designers is that we never repeat a recipe.
When Kelsey asked for a peach and wine palette, I immediately thought of my go to peach choices–‘Shimmer’ roses and peach hypericum berries. What made these recipes unique for me was adding the local peach daffodils. I just wish I had more I could have incorporated into the arrangements! Availability can be fickle when dealing with local products, especially with the year’s late spring.
When it came to incorporating wine, my thoughts immediately turned to safari sunset. I love using this versatile and unique plant. The amaranthus was something I haven’t had the opportunity to use before though and it adds a special touch with it’s draping tendrils.
Both the ceremony and reception were held at the Old Post Office Place.
We designed three different table arrangements.
A tall arrangement, low centerpiece, and non-floral centerpiece provided contrast.
The glow from the lanterns and gold mercury glass votives looked great in the evening.
Congratulations Kelsey and DR! Thank you for the opportunity to work with you. We wish you all the best!
