Lush in Blush at Pine Orchard Yacht Club

Joanna and Greg were so sweet to work with!  Another couple that used me for my Style Services as I worked closely with them on all the details such as bridesmaids dress color, linen choice and color, lace topper, colored lace detail on the seating cards, table numbers, etc etc   I remember walking into the Pine Orchard Yacht Club with the flowers and hearing a gasp from the staff…not only because these centerpieces were.to.die.for but because it was an ‘Aha’ moment as they saw everything come together and make sense.  I will let the photos from the very talented Sean and Micheal from millimeter photo not only show you the details but the love and happiness that they captured from Joanna and Greg that day.   Joanna was prettied up even more than normal by the fabulous Maria Licari! PERFECTION!

Purple, Purple and Purple!

Did I mention this is a Purple Wedding?!?!  I love designing purple weddings as there are SO many different and unique flowers in so many shades, shapes, and sizes!

Love the simple Elegance of this Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station wedding captured by Candace Jeffery Photography.

It was the first time working with Candace and not only was she great to work with, her images are amazing!

It was also the first time working with Jay and Marisa from Social Decor!  (check out their facebook page for their most recent creations and happenings)They decorated the entire perimeter of the outdoor patio with fabric and instantly transformed the space into such a soft, romantic and private ceremony space…and they were awesome to decorate with as they bring their own music to rock out to!!! But, you’ll have to hire them to find out the type of questionable music they listen to…HAHA…just joking…everyone has a little Nirvana in us!



Coral and Cranes

The bridesmaids dresses were Coral, while the theme was embedded with Cranes!  What a wonderful combination.

Lauren wanted her ceremony to be a bit muted and elegant while the punch of color and whimsy showcased at the reception.  The location was Laurel View Country Club in Hamden, Ct, which is very pretty, but does need a more up to date makeover.  The curtains and rug are deep burgundy and Lauren really wanted her centerpieces to compliment the room…so of course, we delivered!

We used so many unique colors for this summer wedding, they worked so well with each other and really pulled everything together.

Her favorite flowers were peonies and we were able to get her the most beautiful Coral peonies ever!

The ceremony took place at Yale, The Marquand Chapel, which was the most beautiful room to design in.

Have fun at Lauren’s wedding and remember to click on the pics for a larger view!

Courtyard by Marriott Expo

The Courtyard by Marriott  in Shelton CT has asked that I be their preferred florist, yay!  They had a bridal expo and I was the only florist showcasing my designs.  It was a great day and I enjoyed meeting all the couples!  The Marriott also hosts a slew of other events, such as, Bar and Bah Mitzvahs, Anniversary Parties, Sweet 16, etc etc

Lisa, the owner of Chair Affair, and I designed 3 main table displays which were fully set with linens, chair covers, napkins etc   They were all of different themes. Then there were about 8 other tables that had smaller centerpieces.

Please enjoy all of my different creations….
