I was recently looking through my photos and saw these bouquets…as you’ll see, it was very hard not to see them…they are SO bright and summery!
So I thought I would blog about them in hopes that summer would finally get here!
Lauren and Matt were the sweetest couple to work with and I loved that they were a bit daring! Since they were having a nautical/seashore wedding in Mystic, we started with a more traditional seashore theme…a little safe… using blues, whites, greens, etc Don’t get me wrong, that’s beautiful for a waterside wedding, but when your Bridesmaids dresses are blue and you’re wedding is in the summer…there are SO many color stories you could choose. Lauren, hesitantly, showed me a photo of a VERY bright and colorful bouquet……I fell in love….not only with the color story, but with her as well! I really love it when a bride can be a bit daring and has the guts to really show their personality on the biggest day of their life!
Needless to say, we went with COLOR and the results were fabulous! The couple decided to take a lot of the design on themselves by having lanterns as centerpieces, hanging mason jars with candles enclosed…everything came together perfectly for a Latitude 41 wedding in Mystic! I am very impressed with her DIY skills…have to show them off!
It was also wonderful to work with Coastal Gourmet Catering, Meg of Creative Image Collections (her photos are stunning) and of course their wedding planner Christine of Piece of Cake Event Planning(we love to work together and you’ll see more of our collaborations soon).
Let the prettiness begin………
Love it when my favorite couples get their weddings featured in great blogs that I love so much!

Thanks to all the wonderful vendors that worked so hard on this wedding so make it perfect for the perfect couple!
I am so excited to talk about Lauren Haymond and Jeff Zimmerman’s Enchanted Vineyard Wedding at Saltwater Farm Vineyard! (of course they are now referred to as Mr and Mrs Zimmerman…or should I say President and First Lady – he he…you’ll see why)
First I have to thank SO many players…. Lauren’s mother, Sharyn Haymond, for seeking me out after meeting with MANY other wedding designers! We had connected right away and had so much fun talking flowers, colors, styles, etc She made me blush every time she referred to me as a “New York” florist! I hear that a lot! I think it’s due to my persistent creativity, unique designs, thinking outside the box, and of course, my funky style! But, enough about me…I was giving thanks…..
Thanks to Lauren’s Father, John Haymond, for being great to work with!
Day of Coordinators, Margaret and Ann from Fancy Pants. They were so easy going and kept on point. They did a great job and worked with my team seamlessly …thank you!
Michael and Kerri from Coastal Gourmet Catering for always putting down the table linens FIRST! We love them!
Merrily and Michael, the owners of Saltwater Farm. They are always so great with me and my team! They refer me often and Michael said that the “Vineyard has never looked so good”…he was very impressed! We thank you and appreciate you both!
MY TEAM!!!! Two Words… A-Mazing! Sarah, my team leader, really stepped it up at this wedding since ALL of the centerpieces needs to be designed ON SITE! There was a ton of decor…17 tables; a chuppah; cocktail; ceremony aisle….etc etc AND we had to get it all done in 2 hours! Yup! That meant everyone was in overdrive and I appreciate their hard work!
And last, but certainly NOT least…. Lauren and Jeff’s Photographer, John Galayda of Blackrock Photography. This is the first time I have had the pleasure of working with him and let me tell you…he was SO nice, so thoughtful, and so easy to work with; before, during and after the wedding. Not to mention his work is fantastic!
It’s so fantastic that I’m not going to bore you anymore with details of the wedding…you can see them ALL through John’s lens…….
Their “guest book”! Such a cute idea!
I can’t stand it! So, I have to include some AWESOME black and whites! Told you John has a great eye and captured so many of the special moments!
