New York Weddings

If you haven't heard yet, we are in the current issue of New York Magazine's special Weddings Issue. Twice a year this publication chooses New York City's most talented industry professionals to contribute their work for an opportunity to be featured in the magazine.

Now here's the deal. I have seen "The Devil Wears Prada."  I have worn my share of faux fur coats and knock-off Louis Vuitton bags. This obviously gives me the right to pretend to think that I know how magazine's work. I never once expected my work to reach actual publication. I always said, in my best, Anne Hathaway voice, "I'm just honored to be nominated..." Blink, Blink. But seriously. I never could have dreamed that we would be featured - not once, but three times. Not only do I feel honored, I am also deeply inspired by the other artists and vendors featured in the publication. Especially my good friends and frequent collaborators  - Stacy and Orlando at Butterfly Bakeshop and fellow flower friends - Lisa Pryzstup (James's Daughter Flowers) and Doan Ly (Sprout Home) . I am so happy to share the space and universe with you incredible artists. 

As I mentioned, we are in the Flowers Feature. But we also worked with the fashion department to create bouquets for the Gowns Feature. Here is a sneak Peak at those two stories. But if you want the whole enchilada you're going have to go get the magazine. Oh and good luck with that, Because I have purchased every copy in a 15 block radius. Happy Thursday!

Gold and Peach Baby Shower

We love working with Manifest Events. Everything they touch turns to gold. LITERALLY. Check out this Gold and Peach themed baby shower our flowers helped bring to life. Oh and speaking of life. Something tells me that mommy-to-be is having a girl.

Butchart Gardens

What an amazing birthday present from my husband Aaron! When visiting family in the Pacific-Northwest, Aaron surprised me with a trip to the beautiful and historic Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC. It was gorgeous! I was entranced by all of the vibrant and texturized plant life. I saw so much, including wild Anemone flowers, Dahlia's the size of my face, Roses, burgundy Amaranths, Chocolate Cosmo's, curling branches, a mesmerizing spider web, foliage, foliage, foliage! AND BEES: beautiful and hard at work!

At one point it felt like we stumbled into The Secret Garden of Frances Hodgson Burnett's fantasy! Complete with floating-stone walk ways and a family of deer made entirely of moss.  Here are some of my favorite pictures of the day.
