I’ll share 2 shots of the bridal bouquet…first, a view from the front and then, a view from the

Colorful Summer Wedding In Stowe, Vermont

A burst of color is a welcome addition to any summertime wedding and the colors for Leah and Mike’s wedding at Stowehof are so fun, bold and bright. The bride was very clear that she wanted color, but she did not want it to look “childish”. (A completely valid concern when choosing colors.) With a mix

Romantic, Unkempt Style At The Round Barn

I don’t often get the chance to design in a peach, white, pink and lavender palette, but when I do, I always love it. There’s something about a soft lavender that really works when added to the more traditional wedding palette of white, blush and peach. Lauren & Kevin’s July wedding was filled with thoughtful details

Sophisticated Elegance: Vermont Wedding Flowers

I LOVE this wedding. When the bride presented this color palette to me almost a year ago, I was tickled. I could not wait to design the flowers for Trista and Mike’s destination wedding at The Mountaintop Inn. This couple is simply too cool. Their flowers reflect a sophisticated elegance that’s both romantic, yet non-traditional.

A Florist In The Making

One of the perks of being a florist is leftovers! The cream of the crop are always used for a wedding, of course, but from time to time the leftover blooms can be quite lovely. I posted some photos from my first wedding of 2016 and when my not-quite-4-year old son saw some leftovers he asked

Winter Wedding in Stowe

It’s not often that our first wedding of the year takes place in January (although last year the first wedding of the year was on Jan. 1st!), but this winter wedding in Stowe, VT was not your typical winter white affair. The addition of burgundy and orange with white and green blooms creates an unexpected
