The latest issue of Our Wedding Magazine just came out and I am so excited! For this issue Blooms teamed up with Stephanie J Designs, stephaniejdesigns.blogspot.com, to create what has to be one of my favorite shoots ever! We went completely vintage for the shoot, from the linens to the old ice cooler, thanks grandma, to the depression glass plates and sterling silver flatware. Stephanie even found the old style paper straws, super cute. We imagined what a bride from the 50's might have done if she was preparing a picnic for her sweetheart and a couple of friends, fresh colors, fresh fruit and of course, soda pop. The table sits overlooking a quiet stream with a floral wreath placed to anchor the setting. A stacked floral arrangement done in vintage milk glass grouping the flowers in a monochromatic scheme. Each place setting has it's own color, yellow David Austin roses with daffodils, Pink garden roses with ranuculus, green roses and Kermit mums, and blue delphinium. Herbs are mixed in to add a lovely fragrance. The nosegay is a mix of all the flowers wrapped in an antique linen. Every occasion is made into a celebration with champagne, with this in mind we gave each of our guests, their own personal bottle, straw included.
I have been a floral designer for 27 years. I was raised by a wedding planner and have spent my life around weddings and entertaining.
I am a mom to 7 wonderful children and have been married to the love of my life for 25 years.
