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.

“Lavender and coral.” When the bride first said these words to me I thought….”hmmmm.” Coral flowers can be limiting at times, but when I heard she also loved gladiolus, well, I knew we had a good plan.

July Wedding At Vermont National Country Club

Katie and Dan tied the knot on one of the hottest days of the summer, but their color palette and overall style was extremely cool. I first met the groom when I was conducting a seminar at The Vermont Vows Wedding Affair at Shelburne Farms last November and if I had an award for “most
