Delaware Wedding Florist: Jennifer & Dan at Harry’s Savoy

I loved working with Jennifer and Dan for their wedding!  It was like a mini high school reunion.  Jennifer and I went to high school together along with her photographer, Brownlee Honeycutt of Honeycutt Photography, and her DJ, Mike Simmons of Must Be The Music DJs.  Their wedding took place at the beautiful Harry’s Savoy Ballroom in Wilmington, Delaware.

Jennifer and Dan decided to get married on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.  I thought it was a brilliant idea since all of their family and friends would be in town for the holiday.  Plus, all of the dancing would help burn some the calories from eating so much turkey!

Their weddings colors were plum and white. The plum added a richness and regal feel to the wedding.  I adore the orchids, roses, hydrangea, freesia, lisianthius, and stock used to create the gorgeous round bouquets.  For an added touch, we trailed Picasso calla lilies through Jennifer’s bouquet.

For Jennifer’s something old, she tasked me with the “nerve-racking” job of cutting lace from her mother’s wedding veil to wrap around the base of her bridal bouquet.  I can’t remember how much reassurance I needed before I cut into her mother’s veil. Ugh.  However, I absolutely love bringing a special and sentimental touch to a wedding.

Congratulations Jennifer and Dan!  I am so happy for the two of you!  I loved being a part of your special day!  I wish you a lifetime of happiness together.

New Jersey Wedding Florist: Impromptu Photo Shoot with Laura in NYC

Recently, my husband and I visited his sister and her fiancé in New York City.  With all of the gorgeous flowers for sale on the sidewalks, I just had to buy some and make a bouquet.

We stopped at The Trailer Park Lounge for drinks and food.  What better place to create the bouquet?!  People probably thought that I was crazy.  I love the vibrant colors of the ranunculus, mums, and freesia.  I am so happy that Laura agreed to model for me.  We had a great time finding random places in NYC to take pictures.  Plus, Scott is a great assistant, especially when he demonstrates how to pose!  LOL  Unfortunately, he will not allow me to pot the pictures of him.

After spending at beautiful day in New York City, we went to a cherry blossom festival in New Jersey outside of Montclair.  So, this turned into a two-day shoot!  Hope you enjoyed these pictures as much as me!

Delaware Floral Designer: Winterthur Point-to-Point

The first Sunday of every May brings the feel of Springtime and the steeplechase races at Winterthur Point-to-Point.  My husband and I have been able to attend this event numerous times, and we always have a great time.  Can you ask for a more gorgeous day to spend outside?!

After the Kentucky Derby yesterday, it is nice to see everyone dressed up today for the races in Delaware.  Who doesn’t love the over-the-top fashion?!

My new obsession has been designing and creating these derby inspired hats.  I made this floral fascinator for Christina to wear to Point-to-Point.  Doesn’t she look beautiful?!

I loved making this out of monestra leaves, aspidistra, Dendrobium orchids, and freesia.  This hat will definitely stand out in the crowd!!!

Delaware Wedding Florist: Harry’s Savoy Bridal Show (Winter 2015)

There was such a great turn out on Sunday at the Harry’s Savoy Bridal Show! I do not think that I had time for a break the entire show! My favorite thing was meeting all of the brides and grooms and their friends and family. I love how each wedding is different. It gets my creative juices flowing! I love being a wedding florist!

I wanted to achieve a romantic, vintage, and rustic feeling with my arrangements for this show. Let me know if you think that I was able to accomplish this. The biggest hit was the duchess rose bouquet. Everyone was very inquisitive about how I created it. Furthermore, everyone loved the small boutonnieres, especially since they are a current trend with grooms.

If you would like to schedule a consultation for your wedding flowers, please contact me today. I look forward to hearing from you! Hope everyone is enjoying this “snow” day!
