Summer Love

My first encounter with this wedding was about two weeks in advance at a floral meeting. We finalized the flower selection and decided to incorporate family silver into the flower arrangements at the reception. This was my first insight into how sentimental this wedding would be. On the Wednesday before the wedding, Dina, a friend of mine, and myself assembled the amenity boxes. Let me tell you,.....

I love being able to learn about stationery, personal i.....

With this wedding, I was able to meet the bride about a month prior to her wedding day, attend her bridal portrait, as well as her rehearsal. I was thrilled to form a relationship with Meg, the blushing bride, and Pe.....

We attend meetings for photography, florals, tastings, venues and vendors. Event planning is scheduling your day around when you can meet with your clients. It’s driving out of your way to acquire that one small element to complete the big day. It takes long.....
