We worked our first wedding last month! The whole process and day were magical. Here’s the first bushel of blooms that we picked up from Wild Scallions Farm. Buckets of dahlias, sweet annie and hyacinth bean!
My daughter Celia, our dear friend Libby and I had the pleasure of working together for this special wedding.
Here we are on the way to Wild Hare Farm to pick up scented geraniums and dusty miller. The GPS lead us on the most stunning back roads. Our stops became more and more frequent as this was just outside our door.
On the same route as the wild turkeys.
Quiet country roads and the soft rain framed our day.
Forget me nots and celosia from Flower Farmer Dan with a pink dahlia from Wild Scallions.
Getting all set up.
Taking a step back to take it in. Looking through the screens. All this beauty grown less than 30 miles from the wedding.
Cafe au lait dahlias, beautyberry from a neighbor and foraged goldenrod.
Libby assembling the boutonnieres. All the greenery for these came from her farm, Frog Pond Farm. A very special touch.
The finished floral head piece for the bride. Forget-me-nots, camellia branches, dahlia and snakeroot flowers.
Ready for the bridesmaids!
Extending the warmest congratulations to Katie Rose and Don!
The bride’s bouquet with foraged boneset, native wisteria and lisianthus from Bluebird Meadows Farm.
Purple dahlias, sweet Annie and native hibiscus pods in one of the many vases from Blue Moon Estate Sales of Orange, Chatham and Durham County.
Verbena, rosemary and juniper tucked into a fig leaf with lamb’s ear, all from Frog Pond Farm.
Late September blooms for the bridesmaids’ bouquets. Sweet annie and rose scented geranium folded in texture and fragrance. My neighbor graciously brought over buckets of perilla (shiso) from her garden. The burgundy and green leaves suited the bouquets and arrangements beautifully and I was so taken by her support. Thank you Maryska!
The gardens and rain provided the most beautiful backdrop for the wedding. And one farmer shared this solitary foxglove bloom just for the occasion.
One of the many table arrangements. We worked from a variety of vases. Glass, metal, milk glass and white. Each table was unique.
Katie Rose asked that we share her flowers after the reception. She wanted others to enjoy them, as well. We handed them to friends, neighbors and assisted living/rehab facilities.
