When I met Kathryn she described herself as a little country and her groom, a lot city.  When it came to floral design these two were on polar opposites of the spectrum.  Loose, gardeny and natural versus traditional and elegant.  My job as a florist was to meld the two looks.

Rain may have prevented an outdoor ceremony but an indoor ceremony was sweetened by chandeliers dripping in roses and fluffy romantic ceremony arrangements.  It is always so wonderful when back-up rain room’s like this exist at venue’s.  You never think of rain or anticipate rain but voila…rain.  So brides take note: a pretty rain room/space well worth the investment.

My first phone consultation with Kathryn I could hear David playing his guitar in the background, that should have been a sign that music would be a major influence on their wedding as well.  For the reception Distinct occasions created a fun vinyl seating chart wall and every table displayed a different album.  I especially liked that guests signed a guitar instead of a guest book when they entered the reception.  Distinct Occasions planned and executed this entire event to perfection, so much fun to work with Crystal and Gina.

The reception room was accented by a spectacular twinkle light display over the dance floor.  Luxurious linens and chivari chairs by Simply Beautiful paired perfectly with our opulent soft centerpieces.  Sweet Celebrations created a fantastic cake and dessert table for the couple.  If only I could sample a gold doughnut…..but wheat kills me…literally.

All of the ladies were made even more stunning by Bridal Beauty mobile make-up artistry group.  Huge thanks to Brandon Scott Photography as well for capturing the day so perfectly.

What you don’t see in these pictures is my tireless crew.  We had another large wedding this day (which was outdoors and in a tent) and it was literally raining cats and dogs…..seriously. At the end of this set-up we looked like a pack of drowned rats.  I depend on these women to execute our brand to perfection and they nailed it.  Olga, Jen, Melanie and Monica you are all spectacular and I was blessed to have had you this day and every day.
