Colleen and Joe


This wedding was so much fun. I got to play with ranunculus, pink O'hara garden roses, and juniper. Colleen really wanted the palette of bubblegum pink, white, silver and sage green. Her theme was apres-ski, winter into spring, but fun and bright. I have to say it was a challenging theme and fun to figure out how to combine all these elements. The ranunculus were unbelievably huge, each petal floating like a paper sheath waiting to unfurl, and the O'hara roses smelled like jasmine. I was a happy little designer. I also managed to wire small pieces of juniper into each bouquet, the color of blue sage against peachy pink was perfect. Pinecones and silvery dusty miller added just enough winter feel. The maid of honor and the bride en route to the wedding above!

I love doing February and March weddings because they hit right at the time I am really missing the warm days of spring and gardens with fragrant smells. This spring has been very long and cold. I have also been on a strictly enforced elimination diet that has rendered my culinary habits obsolete. Thankfully, this diet is almost over, and June is closing in. The blossoms are all popping, gardens are getting planned, ramps and fiddleheads are getting harvested, and I have a busy busy summer of weddings!
