Mike + Tanya
People always find it fun that I stay in touch with a lot of my past brides. But the truth is, these brides and I have spent countless hours together over many months, planning such an important day, that it only seems natural to stay in touch. And with every referral, birth announcement or impromptu coffee date that comes my way, it’s just a small reminder to me that what I do matters.
Cue Katherine, a past bride of mine and now a small business owner (x2). She and her husband live in the most beautiful home, on the east side of the state, that they are restoring and where she also runs her interior design business from.
When I received an email from Katherine wanting me to be the floral designer for one of her clients, I was immediately flattered and excited. The mood board she sent and the ideas she had put together were amazing. The overall aesthetic could be described as Old World Charm. Elegant antiques where accented by a rich color palette. Shades of reds and deep blue were accented with blush and gold. Velvet ribbon was wrapped around the bouquets, which consisted of peonies, ranunculus, and garden roses, and greenery was tucked behind the antique broaches the men wore. Entering the ballroom guests were greeted with sparkling chandeliers, beautiful crown molding, and glowing candles. Every centerpiece was a mini vignette, consisting of different vintage items that had all been gathered by Katherine.
Being a part of this gorgeous wedding was a dream and getting to work with a previous bride is always a plus. Congratulations Mike and Tanya and thank you for letting us be part of such a special day!
