Melissa and Brett ~ Rustic Autumn Wedding

It was such a pleasure working with Melissa and Brett.  This couple had such a warm, welcoming attitude; I couldn’t imagine the bride carrying anything but sunny sunflowers.  And I am happy to say we were able to fill her bouquet  with the last of our local, seasonal textures found at Island Meadow Farm.  From local raspberry, crespidia and wheat to dainty black eyed susan and curly willow; I was over the moon to be able to add some locally grown lovelies to Melissa’s bouquet.

The groom and his men wore viking poms with seasonal textures of wheat, raspberry and dusty miller; neatly bound in hemp twine.

Gatherings of baby’s breath in clear mason jars graced the tables for this simply rustic affair.  Melissa and Brett’s table scape was designed by Sherri Stewart of  Above The Rest.

Storm Day Inspiration

Even on this brooding storm day in March, I can find inspiration.  As the moody grey clouds hang close to the land releasing their soft snow onto the fields surrounding the farm, my thoughts are on spring and of course, flowers.

Like so many snow flakes, gypsophilia or the more commonly known baby’s breath, is more impactful when clustered together.

It’s easy to appreciate this flowers beauty when it stands on its own.  It makes my heart skip a beat when it is coupled with grey tones; sweetly understated and undeniably delicate.
