Over the past few years I have gotten so really amazing thanks yous from my brides, this year has been also a great year for letters. It is me who should be thanking the bride for letting me be part of the most awesome day of their lives! Just knowing that my flowers live on in photos books makes me so happy. Today I got this lovely letter from a bride. what a nice surprise to think she took time to send it. :)

I added a little birch to the vase with twine to give it an earthy look

Cute grape vine pomanders lined the pews

My monograms are a huge hit I made 2 for this wedding

My first stop was to St. Augustine cathedral. my bride was as always stunning and happy the day was warm and sunny. I made her a bouquet of cobra  lily's, pods,plumb callas, hydrangea, peacock feathers,Barunia berries, Majolica roses, spider mums, and added greens. Stunning she LOVED them

Presentation is everything

I love seeing the new ways designers are presenting  flowers when they deliver. What fun and inventive ways to do it. This weekend I was at the herb  farm so I wanted to do something that blended with the view. Here is a piece of birch wood I used to pin on the lapel flowers. I think it worked out GREAT what do you think?

Southern Exposure wedding photos

My hydrangeas were HUGE this week!

Look at this beauty, lush full flowers perfection from Park Place Design

Great lapel flowers too..

The chairs had these amazing wire and moss cones hanging

Adding peacock feathers is so much fun.
southern exposure is one of my many favorite places to deliver wedding flowers! Not only is it amazing but the staff is so warm and inviting. Unfortunately this wedding season I had only one wedding booked  there. This bride booked in 2010 and I work with her from long distance.The weather was high 60's and sunny. I manage to get a few snap shots of this fun Blue wedding.
