Italian adventure

My husband and I were lucky enough to be able to attend our dear friends Faye and Michael's wedding in Italy back at the start of October.  The wedding was held in the most glorious agriturismo in the Valpolicella region.  Faye, a very creative girl, had planned and made everything down the bread bags for the dinner tables (made from of dish cloths, they were so cute!).  But Faye asked me to do the flowers.  She ordered them, gave me some inspiration pictures of what look she was going for and left me to it!  Here are a few pictures of the results!

We had the most amazing time at the wedding.  It was such a honor to be able to do what I love for friends.  Thank you for letting us be part of your special day and weekend.

Katherine and Simon, Maine

After some delay, here are some pictures from Katherine and Simon's Maine wedding held at Wolfe Neck Farm.  The farm provided the field and Katherine had to work out the rest.  We were thrilled that Katherine decided to go with us for her out of state big day (especially as it meant that we got to have a Maine lobster roll while we were there!)
We were a traveling flower shop that weekend.  Living out the back of our the car we did all the flowers, the table top paper good, wishing tree and photo wall to name a few.  We were really pleased how everything came together... and hope that the bride and groom thought so too.

Anna and Jourdan's BK Wedding

A few weeks ago we had a great time working with Anna and Jourdan. The ceremony was held on a rooftop in Park Slope then everyone jumped on the ferry over to the Java Street Pier in Greenpoint... HOW FUN! 
The reception was at Paulie Gee's...a great little Italian restaurant on Greenpoint Avenue. 

Jourdan and Anna wanted fun and easy flowers that would coordinate with their grey and yellow color palette, and bring in an autumnal feeling. 

We were able to do this by using ranunculus, billy buttons, garden roses, succulents, dusty miller and kumquats.

In addition to flowers, we also provided the wooden stumps and table name cards. Anna and Jourdan named each table after a borough of NYC, which was a very fun idea. We also decorated the tables with pears and crab apples. 

The wedding cake was made by a family friend, Liz (author of a great cooking blog). We helped to assemble and decorate this tasty and cool looking cocounut cake. 

We had a great time working with the ladies, and also Jourdan's mom Josiane.
