I’ve been designing wedding flowers for over 16 years and while I’ve been fortunate to work on hundreds of weddings and worked with many wonderful couples and their families, I never, ever take for granted the extreme amount of trust clients place in me as a wedding florist.
Dillon & Scott’s wedding at The Coach Barn at Shelburne Farms is an example of what extreme trust looks like from a mother of the groom who wanted a look that’s “elegant and of the season”, with a joyful look ahead to fall colors….but mostly, the decisions on flowers and colors were left to my discretion. No micro-managing here. Just freedom & trust.
I’m head over heels for this palette of purples, lavender, oranges, peaches and white with lots and lots of greenery. Flowers featured here include roses, scabiosa, dahlias, larkspur, snapdragons, stock, ranunculus, hydrangea and mums.
Congratulations to Dillon & Scott! It was a perfect “almost fall” day at Shelburne Farms….and I can’t wait to see professional images from Orchard Cove Photography!
From June to August in a blink of an eye! That’s what summers as a floral designer feel like sometimes. Now that it’s August, it’s finally time to share this wedding from earlier this summer at The Round Barn! First, the bride’s bouquet! Flowers featured in this bouquet include peonies, roses, freesia, stock, sweet peas,
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
There’s not much I can say about weddings at The Round Barn that I haven’t said before….it’s one of the best locations for a Vermont wedding. Period. I have this tradition of always photographing my bridal bouquets in the same spot upon my arrival on the wedding day. With snow on the ground for Christine
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. The inspiration for this wedding was a natural, romantic vibe with lots of greenery and a palette of whites, pinks and touches of lilac. A fresh table runner on the
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. Included here are dahlias, ranunculus, delphinium, snapdragons, stock, roses, spray roses, callas, scabiosa, eucalyptus and summer sweet. The maid of honor’s
