2 Sisters 1 Great Photographer!

Today I talked to Melissa, she owns Issy Schmid Imaging and she did an amazing job on Dani and Jimmy's wedding last weekend! Then I realized Melissa did Dani's sister Alison's wedding last year, and so did I! So I am so excited that I will be getting some new shots for my site! I'd like to add some now so you can see how great the pictures are!

Above is Alison and her bridesmaids from her wedding last year. These colors look awesome!

This is Danielle's cake from The Sweet Life Bakery! It looked totally gorgeous!

Danielle and Jimmy after the ceremony! Congratulations guys! I had such a blast working with you guys, so happy everyone liked everything! Another thanks to Melissa for doing such a fabulous job on the photos! Keep an eye out for new pictures on the site soon :)

Three Weddings In One Day, a Crazy, Happy Success!

Today was a very busy day with myself and my girls on the road and all over the place. All of the weddings were awesome and all a little different. Two weddings were fellow Sacred Heart grads and the third was an out of state couple whom I met over a year ago. In a crumbling economy like this one, I feel so blessed to be this busy, and also so happy to share my creative energy with so many!

Above are the altar flowers for Chris and Robyn's wedding up in Moorestown at Trinity Episcopal Church, the most gorgeous church I've been to!

This is a photo of Jimmy and Danielle's centerpieces at Merighi's Savoy Inn in Vineland. We did a single submerged calla with a floating candle and votives at the base of a beveled mirror. Very clean and simple! Her hightops were submerged orchids with floating candles in a shorter cylinder.

LOVE LOVE LOVE their cake! Jill at the Sweet Life Bakery created this gorgeous cake! Danielle wanted a soft cascade of hydrangeas, roses, orchids, and awesome uhule fiddles just at the top, totally cool!

Katelyn's wedding was in East Vineland and her reception was at the Seaveiw Golf Resort and Spa by Dolce in Galloway. LOVE this place! She wanted a lot of clean white with elegant silver containers. Above we used orchids, hydrangeas, Vitality garden roses, parrot tulips, hyacinths, and many other blooms to accent.

The other half of her tables were made up of 3 mint julep cups (some tables with small cups, some with high cups) filled with single varieties in each. Some were just orchids, stock, hydrangeas, garden roses, spray roses, or hyacinths. The room smelled so great!

Chris and Robyn had their reception at Lucien's Manor in Berlin, in the Venetian Ballroom. We also did 2 centerpiece styles. These were small simple ivy bowls filled with stock, roses, hydrangeas, freesias, and sweet peas. The other were large vases that were double the size and contained the same flowers.

Danielle's ring bearer carried this pillow made of only Yoko Ono lime button mums, wrapped with chocolate double-faced satin.

A close up of Robyn's bridal bouquet. These hydrangeas are my FAVORITE!

It was a wonderful day and everyone was happy! It is so rewarding when you hear everyone in the room kinda squeal in excitement! It totally makes my day! Congratulations Katelyn and Bobby, Jimmy and Danielle, and Robyn and Chris! I loved working with you guys!

Melissa and Derek's Wedding on April 2, 2010

I Cannot wait for the professional photos to come back from Douglas Photography because I KNOW they are going to be fabulous! The girl's bouquets looked awesome against the simple black dresses and we used all the colors above in the arrangement on the purgola at Running Deer.

The card table had all the same flowers, along with tinted water to add interest. I used jasmine vine draping down and it smelled wonderful! Spring is here!

Elia's Wedding on April 3, 2010

What a gorgeous weekend for 2 weddings! We did Elia's wedding, which took place in Wilmington, and Melissa's, which took place at Running Deer in Pittsgrove. Both brides were ecstatic, and so was I! Posted below is a photo of Elia's bridal bouquet. LOVE LOVE LOVE the dark blue hydrangeas! They are my favorite:)

Running Deer Bridal Show Highlights

Above is a hot pink ranunculus boutounniere that I made with cherry blossoms, pussy willow, curly willow, ginestra, and soft, white feathers to accent. I love this because although it's unusual in texture, its completely natural.

This is my favorite bouquet because I used peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, and hot pink hydrangeas. I added hot pink pins on the lime ribbon to bring out the ranunculus, and gave them diamonds in the center to give them even more attention!

Thin, lime bullion wire is a cool way to add interest to a spring hand-tied bouquet of daffodils, garden roses, and parrot tulips.

Cindy's Wedding on March 28, 2010

I had a great time playing with the flowers for Cindy's wedding. She did a cherry blossom theme and usually fresh cherry blossoms need to have perfect timing, and her definitely did! We incorporated them in her centerpieces (at The Rushes in Woodstown, NJ) and her ceremony area was adorned by two huge vases of cherry blossoms in full bloom (photos to follow)! I'd like to share some pictures of what I did from her wedding. The photo above was a close up shot of the wrist corsage I did for the children in the bridal party (we did 3 girls) and each of these wrist corsages were made with a long double-faced satin ribbon. This way the girls could simply tie them on their wrists and the size was perfect no matter how little they were:) I love these because they are fast and I can use ANY ribbon. Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs! I LOVED working with you guys!

The groom's boutounniere was simply made with white hyacinth blossoms and eriostomen.

The kissing ball for the flower girl was made with garden spray roses, hyacinth blooms, and sterling range blooms.

I love this romantic garden rose corsage. I acquired garden spray roses from Europe and accented them with hydrangeas, ginestra, and sterling range blooms.

Cindy's bouquet had white peonies, white parrot tulips, and white hyacinths.

Melissa & Derek from Steve Williams on Vimeo.

Check out this FABULOUS video by Steve Williams! What an awesome gorgeous day for an outdoor wedding in April. Melissa was really happy with her flowers and Derek said his videographer was great, but I think great is an understatement! My wedding video was no where near as good as this!
