The Kalamazoo flower lady

Hello all! I get many e-mails and phone calls from some wonderful flower friends all over the USA. So many people want to know what my consultant studio looks like and what the Great flower lady looks like. Last night I was outside and my husband snapped a couple of pictures. I hate my photo taken BUT I will post this one. This is me by my studio and my potting bench, Happy August ~

Last wedding in July 2011

Wow seen just yesterday I was thinking what a heavy month July was for me., I am a one women team with a part time helper In the summer months. I feel so blessed to be working so hard and having amazing brides who trust me with their wedding day. Here it is Friday night and I have ALL my July weddings done. Saturday I am offf and I am going to enjoy it until Aug. hits. Here is a sweet bride I got a photo of in down town Vermontville the home of the best maple syrup around.

Summer brides

Most bride when planning a Michigan wedding in January are not thinking to much about HOT, humid, raining Michigan summers. This wedding was not the exception. Sara planned her wedding day on the lake at her In Laws amazing home the day was HOT and sticky about 89 and 104 humidity. I was needless to say "worried" about her flowers being outside all day in the sun.

   Her wedding was scheduled for 5:00 and it went off with out a hitch. except there were 2 processionals! right at 5:00 as most of her maids were down the path it stared to rain and RAIN hard. all the guest had to take cover.  But a few minutes and dry seats later it went off again as I left and drove away I knew she made it down the rose covered path. BUT it stared to rain again and this time HARD!! I felt so bad. BUT it went off and the umbrellas were out. This is an amazing photo the pros took of the couple taking their vow in a soaked cover lawn, I really love this photo. Here is a few I also took before I lef…

Thanks Shannon for sharing your photos with me.I love them

What a crazy weekend of weddings! Michigan weather has been so hot and humid the air is thick. But my July brides are in full wedding mode. This beach wedding at Gun lake was fun. I also got to capture a few photos before I  left for the day. Soft romantic Calla lily's, and wispy grass is perfect for this beach wedding.
