Alas, all things not being perfect (but most) this weekend, I dropped my little Canon in a bucket of water...after I'd taken photos of the rehearsal dinner flowers and after they had been delivered. I had to rely on my old camera to snap a few bouquets and an Escort table piece.
These two bouquets required Tweedia. This one was blush peonies, Tweedia and Maiden Hair Fern. We transported it in water. Luckily the Bride understood how delicate it was, so we delivered at the last minute. The Japanese Tweedia is perfection.
This Bride wanted an informal bouquet of garden flowers. No roses. No peonies. By some miracle there was Autumn type Clematis available that enhanced the 'wild' flower look. Astrancia has become the most popular flower in the shop second to peonies right now.
This was the little Bridesmaid bouquet for her Sister. The last of the Dutch sweet pea was in both bouquets.
The "wild" flower wedding was at Adams House at Harvard. Our shop used to be across the street, so it was kind of nice to be back in our old stomping grounds. This was her Escort Table piece.
I was given the O.K. to slip a few of these irresistable yellow peonies into the vase.
Kristina has left with her partner Stephanie to have a new life in Baltimore and our stellar driver Ryan has found a real job, so Gillian and I were on our own last week, making deliveries and whipping up two full on weddings and two smaller weddings.
Needless to say I slept in this morning.
Ryan came back to us for the day like he promised he would after working a 60 hour week at his new job. I am truly fortunate to have those two! He's also on board for a multiple wedding day in July.
My roses are all blooming in the garden. I'm planning a Meet and Greet on tomorrow's blog!
