As Summer Turns to Fall...

August and September flew by with lots of amazing special events and weddings. We felt lucky to participate in creating so many beautiful weddings that were truly reflections of each individual couple. We were also so pleased to be featured on the ever-inspiring blog, Style Me Pretty, as well as in's Real Weddings. Here are a few photos of our work over the last month or two. Enjoy!

The wedding here was Jen and Kevin's at the Glastonbury Country Club. Their very personal and incredibly cool details included a vintage brooch-filled houquet, custom Chuck Taylors, feathers, and woodland elements, to name a few. SUCH nice people, too. The first images are from Strawberry Road Photography, and the last one, of their birch bark centerpieces is my own handiwork!

This one was a lovely backyard wedding of peach, orange, coral and green tones. Nathan Fried-Lipski, their photographer, was kind enough to share these images.

These are a few of Carla Ten Eyck's beautiful images of Portia and Steve's wedding at the Gershon Fox (one of our FAVORITE places to work in CT). Everything was so unique and personal! I'm also thrilled to report that this wedding and my work made it on to one of my favorites: Style Me Pretty!

This was a gift and a bit of an experiment of a style outside of my usual cofort zone. Mini white calla lilies, ornamental artichokes, calathea leaves, tulips, hydrangea and lotus pods. Fun!

Below is a tall, formal centerpiece with lots of raspberry and lime green tones from a wedding at The Rivewview in Simsbury, CT. Catherine Fiehn Photography was kind enough to share the image.

These are a few we did for various group events at the gorgeous Winvian in Morris, CT:

The first contains three tones of dahlias with date palm and seeded eucalyptus in a woven leather vase.

The next one is a classic paring of late summer's sunflowers in a simple galvanized bucket.

This one was a three part centerpiece of dark red calla lilies, tulips, artichokes and branches.

Here's a boutonniere I made and loved which picks up on the vintage/rustic trend. It's made of of spray roses, scabiosa pods, lavender waflower, seeded eucalyptus and a simple tie of burlap.

These were from a beautiful wedding at The Farmington Club. The tall curly willow tree with hanging votives set the tone as guests entered the room.

This was another Riverview event where we covered the ceremony arch in the bride's favorite blooms: hydrangea, roses, delphinium, hanging amaranthus, lisianthus and many foliages. A big thank you to Daisy Wedding Photography for these beautiful images!

I also had the pleasure of learning that a wedding we did this summer with Sixpence for Your Shoe and Bruce Plotkin is now part of's Real Weddings. Thanks, Christina and Dave for letting me share the beauty of your day with brides looking for inspiration!
Our season does not seem to be slowing down, so I'll be back worth more images from our fall and winter work soon, I hope!
