It was a beautiful (and warm!) June day for Hannah and Kofi’s wedding at Mad River Barn. This was my first time working at Mad River Barn and it is absolutely awesome. The setting is beautiful, the owner and staff were so friendly, and the venue is a fabulous balance of outdoor/indoor which is so
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.
By now it may be obvious that I L-O-V-E a white, pink, peach and burgundy palette. I mean love it. The addition of deep plum/burgundy takes a classic wedding palette and just adds a touch of contrast and depth. Susanna and Andreas were married this August in Burlington, VT and then headed up to The
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.

I do flowers. I don’t know what you do for work (or pleasure), but I do flowers (for both work & pleasure). I’ve enjoyed this work for so long it’s hard to remember a time before I had my hands dirty. Most professions have education & advanced training, but in the flower world these opportunities
Trend alert! Couples are booking their vendors later…and later…and it’s going to be a problem. There’s a misconception found in the “timelines” that national mags and blogs recommend. 6 months before your wedding is not “ample time” to book a florist, photographer or caterer.
