June is usually when I officially kick off my wedding season in Vermont, but for my first wedding this June I took a little trip across the lake to Whiteface Club in Lake Placid, NY, for a beautiful wedding in a soft, romantic palette of whites, greens, pale pinks, buttery yellows, and a few touches of peach.
Cocktail were served on the lawn by the lake as well as in the Boat House. This large vase created a beautiful focal point in the center of the room. This design includes snapdragons, larkspur, spirea, stock, hydreangea, ranunculus, roses, ruscus, dusty miller, and kangaroo paw.
Congratulations to Caroline & Bill! It was such a pleasure to work with you. Thanks for trusting me to just “run with it” and create based on your seasonal, garden inspiration!

A big thanks to Amy Bennett for sharing these beautiful photos of Kelsey and Anthony’s destination wedding at The Lang Barn Farm in Essex, VT.

Each year Pantone selects a “color of the year” and in truth, I don’t find that it often has much of an impact on the floral choices I see in Vermont weddings, however, Pantone’s color of the year for 2018 is “Ultra Violet”, which I must say does not come as a surprise to me!
I learned about floral couture when I attended my first Chapel Designer Workshop where Francoise Weeks was teaching. She was so patient and strategic about her work. It was truly inspiring. A few years ago when I decided to make a concerted effort to “perfect” my corsage and boutonniere work, I drew upon what I
“The flowers will continue to live on brilliantly in people’s hearts long after the real flowers have faded.” -Makoto Azuma I heard these words spoken in an interview with Makoto Azuma and they really struck a chord. His words ring true for me as a wedding florist where the plans we make (sometimes for a year!)
I never take a beautiful wedding day for granted. It was a truly lovely day for this wedding at The Round Barn in Waitsfield, VT. Featured here are some of the most beautiful anemones. I rarely rely on anemones to come in “just so perfectly”, but lucky for me, they came in 2 weeks in
Labor Day weekend brought us one beautiful sunny Saturday for a wedding at The Mansfield Barn. This blush pink, peach, burgundy palette with touches of blue just seems meant to be. I love it.

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
June weddings were packed full o’ peonies this year. I’ve got something pretty (and pink!) to share with you from a recent wedding at The Coach Barn at Shelburne Farms. If you love a soft, romanic palette of blush pinks, whites, champagnes and peach, this one’s for you! We added a few touches of a
