The Weekend - A Blur (in a good way!)

This past week, Wendy and I created some beautiful, pastel arrangements for a local private school's Alumni Weekend as well as a colorful wedding. I immediately went on to NYC for a night with friends (where I saw Sue Sylvester, for all my fellow Glee fans). I am exheausted but had the best time working and, well, NOT working. Here are some photos from both beautiful events.

The bride's bouquet - peonies are always such a great choice for our late May and June brides.

The room loked great because our couple, Monique and Junior, truly thought of every detail. The chinese lanterns strung vertically around the dance floor looks so great as did her chair and table linens for more color. It really looked so festive.

The seating card table - an arrangement I made on site with some extras we had on hand.

One of the centerpieces for the 50th Reunion Dinner. Simple and classic.

The bar arrangement.

Centerpieces of lilies, larkspur, roses and curly willow for another alumni dinner. This one was for alumni celebrating 50 yeas or more since their graduation from high school - wow!

Blues and Purples at a May Wedding

I wanted to share some photos of our last wedding at the club house of the Fairview Golf Course in Harwinton - a pretty setting with rolling green hills and perfect weather. I knew my bride loved purple since both times we met she was dressed in her favorite hue. We made sure to include lots of the regal tone in her flowers. To make things even more personal, we included microchips in the boutonnieres for this techy group! These personal touches really make weddings all the more special. Here are some shots both from her photographer (whose name I have yet to get) and our own.

Irises, viburnum, ivy, roses, and orchids with a leaf wrap.

The bridal party - lots of calla lilies - her favorite flower.

The head table looked lush with blooms spilling down in front of the happy couple.

What a pleasure to work on this wedding!
