Dreamy Vineyard Wedding

“Dreamy” is what comes to mind when I look at Julianne…her dress, her hair piece, her bouquet…. Her and Andrew’s wedding was so soft and full of romance…you have to see for yourself….

Featured Weddings

 

Having been designing for over 20 years, starting my business from scratch 15 years ago it is always VERY exciting to get recognized by the wedding industry’s most prestigious magazines, books and websites!

I thought it would be fun to gather all of my featured weddings and events  throughout the years.  There have been many trends, many themes, intimate affairs and grand events…yet, I love every single one of them!

They are my babies and every couple a part of me along this journey….enjoy…

Enchanted Vineyard Wedding

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…….
