August Wedding Flowers At The Lang Barn

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 long head table was a centerpiece of the reception decor and chandeliers with draping greens tied the whole room together.

Flowers featured here include: cafe au lait dahlias, roses, ranunculus, freesia, hydrangea, hypericum berries, olive branches, bay leaf, eucalyptus, ruscus, smilax, and dusty miller.

While the bride chose this lovely soft lilac color for her bridesmaids’ dresses, she did not want pinks to be prominent in her flowers; greens & whites were the main floral palette and touches of dahlias and waxflower added a small pop of pink.

There was a certain laid-back easiness to the floral design for this wedding. It’s not “wild”, it’s not “messy”, but it’s also not overly manicured or fussy. It’s simple in its elegance, it’s subtle in its nod to the unkempt and it’s undoubtedly timeless.

Congratulations to Kelsey & Anthony! And thanks again to Amy Bennett Photography  for sharing her work with me so that I can share it with you!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Pantone’s Color of the Year

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!

Floral jewelry

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

Long after the real flowers have faded

“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!)

August Wedding at The Round Barn

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

Faux Spring, Real Roots

It’s early April in Vermont and after some snow overnight on Friday, it has been BEAUTIFUL weather the past 2 days. So beautiful, in fact, that I could almost mistake it for spring! I loved this spring day! I hung laundry on the clothesline, raked leaves, scoped out the scene in the perennial beds to
