It's been a special start to the wedding season this year for me. I welcomed by first baby in February, and my heart has been full. I was lucky enough to take most of February through April to be with her, and my spring and early summer brides were kind enough to give me this space. Many of them had booked with me in summer and autumn of 2014, and when I let them know that I was taking this time mostly away from work and email, I was a little nervous that they would be understandably concerned if I would be ready for the weddings and in tune to their needs as spring approached. But instead, they all congratulated me, trusted me, and were so generous in giving me that time and space on maternity leave. And when we did get back in touch this spring, they all asked about my little girl and truly shared in that joy with me. And I was truly excited to see them on their wedding days. They gave me a great gift of work/family balance, and I am so grateful for that. Thank you. It's a gift to work with such generous and thoughtful people! And here's a few sneak peaks of some of the flowers from this spring and autumn:
Loved this bride's bouquet for a wedding at Misty Farm, with a mix of pink, peach, burgundy, ivory, orange and yellow - with a few succulents, too!
We were in a sea of beautiful white, ivory, and blush blooms at The Inn at St. Johns. Gorgeous cake by Sweet Heather Anne, and so much fun to create a topper of garden roses and hydrangea for the finishing touch!
