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.
