2017 marks my sixteenth season in business! I must say that 16 feels pretty sweet. Each year in business is an adventure. I never take for granted the trust that my clients bestow upon me; being a part of a couple’s wedding day is a tremendous honor. Every season brings new opportunities to bloom and

One stand out moment from my 15th year in business was working for my alma mater, The University of Vermont, this season. I designed the arrangements for a very special dinner at The Fleming Museum as well as some accent pieces for the newly renovated Alumni House which was officially unveiled in time for Alumni Weekend.
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” -Albert Camus Fall weddings really do feel like a breath of fresh air when a busy summer season turns to autumn. I absolutely adore this photo my bride, Gabriella, shared with me from her wedding on Saturday at Whiteface Country Club. Two of Us
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.

You’ll see roses, succulents, scabiosa, eucalyptus and dusty miller foliage, freesia, stock, asters and gladiolus in these designs.
T’was a pleasure to work with Amanda & Patrick this May for my first wedding at The Skinner Barn. We did all of our planning long-distance and their easy-going, seasonal-Vermont vibe basically made them ideal clients. The couple brought some hometown flair up north with oyster tins as vessels for the flowers at the reception.
It’s always nice to be invited back. Dinner with friends that ends with a, “we should do this again”, just feels good. Multiply that by about 1,000 and that’s how I feel when I get invited back to do a second wedding for a family. It’s truly an honor to be a part of a
