Last Saturday, I spent the loveliest afternoon helping set up a wedding at Mackay Gardens. The sweet bride was Sara, who I’ve had the pleasure of knowing since our days of conjugating verbs and reciting the translation of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” in Mrs. E’s latin class {more than 10 years ago, whew!!}.

No detail was left untended in this garden soiree. Sara wore her mom’s wedding gown (which she had altered to fit her classic, impeccable style) and her bridesmaids donned JCrew dresses with gold glitter peep-toe pumps. I designed her bridal bouquet with creamy Vendela roses, waxflower, and seeded eucalyptus, and used a variety of bright spring blooms casually arranged in vintage bottles and jars for her outdoor reception. I also designed the swag above the altar on site — a new feather the hat of my event design repertoire!

For most of the weddings I design, I deliver the flowers and scoot long before the bride even arrives to the venue. This time, the family let me hang around for the afternoon to be part of the action and watch it all come together. I loved every minute of it, right down to the final moments in the bridal room before Sara walked down the aisle.

Wishing Sara and Mike a lifetime of happiness! Thanks for letting me be part of your special day!
