Whew, I really dropped the updating-the-blog ball last week!

I was a little distracted. We had our biggest wedding of the season last Saturday for a very special couple, Vera and Mikal. It was the first big wedding I’ve taken the reigns on, start-to-finish. I wanted everything to be perfect. We spent three days designing the flowers for the ceremony and reception; an elegant mix of white orchids, calla lilies, hydrangeas, and white roses. I spent Saturday decorating the church and the reception hall, and I loved every single minute of it. There are very few situations when my control-freak perfectionism comes in handy (just ask my husband), but it turns out it’s great for designing weddings.

I wanted Vera to walk into her venue and just be wowed. I spoke to her mom this morning, and she said everything was beautiful, and the reception arrangements “took Vera’s breath away.” I’m not going to lie, I got a little choked up. What an honor to be such an integral part of someone’s big day!

Of course, I didn’t take any pictures. I was so consumed in the process, I didn’t have time to document. {Bad blogger.}

No big weddings on the docket this week, so hopefully we’ll be back in business on the blog. I have lots of great new things to add to the boutique, too, so stay tuned!

    Is that an infinity scarf? I think I’m on the hunt for one but never find myself buying one when I see it. I’m all for neutral outfits with a pop of color as well!

  4. What an adorable outfit, love the shorts, and those shoes are absolutely a beautiful pop of colour too!! Yay, so thrilled to hear the wedding was a hit – I had pretty much the exact same flowers at my wedding. So pretty! xo veronika

  5. Calla lilies are my fav! It all sounds beautiful, but very tiring. I don’t blame you for not taking photos, sometimes life happens.
    This look is super cute and casual.

    I love your loafers so much, every post that you wear them makes me want them more. However, in my cold climate (I live in Newfoundland, Canada), it’s a little premature to be making purchases like this. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll have to get them now anyways!!

  10. Oh this gives me so much hope for my wedding in September! We don’t have a florist yet (gasp!!!) but we are getting married in a garden. I am hoping everything goes off smoothly without a hitch! Glad to see you back and I love this casual outfit!

    • You have plenty of time to find a florist and pick your flowers! I love the idea of getting married in a garden!
