"Gratitude and reverence in all things mother earth, have become my personal life mission statement-without it, i dont know who I would be....Im so blessed to be doing what I do... always in awe of the individual and natural design of each single flower- they feed my soul and I never tire of their spirit" Susan Foy

Special thanks to all my brides and their photographers for supplying photos-I usually see you on your way to hair and make-up so it's been a pleasure to see you in all your glory.

Elizabeth and Nathan 5.30.09

Elizabeth was one of my out-of-towner brides that I never actually met!  Most of our planning involved emails and phone calls and visual aids.  Her mom, Anne, lived locally so she was able to expedite most details.  Thanks to these great shots by Tine Hoffman tmphotography.net I wouldnt have been able to put a face to the bouquet.  Check out the incredible work that mom, Anne , created for the damask theme.  If you want to hire her, I have her number.

                                          Elizabeth carried a simple bouquet of tulips


Centerpieces were filled with white hydrangea and white football mums.

Check out the rainbow....

Great view at Drees Pavilion day and night

Sapna 5.30.09

Sapna  is the cousin of previous post with Reena and Michael.  This authentic Indian ceremony was hosted by Sapna's parents at their lovely home.  A custom gazebo was built for the special day.  The month of May had more rain than I ever remember- but it all stopped in honor of this special occasion.
These pictures provided by the family as well as the ceremony decor.

The reception took place at Norlyn Manor norlynmanor.com.  Contemporary floral
centerpieces in purples and greens garnished the 40 tables-linens in all black with sage green chair ties
and accent lighting created a sophisticated mood in Norlyn's main rooms. Thanks to Michael Bambino for these great pics. michaelbambino.com

Reena and Michael 9.6.09

Reena and Michael were not only one of the sweetest and most humble couples I ever met- but possibly the most beautiful-no two people should look so good! I loved how they honored the traditional heritage of Reena's culture and also incorporated Michael's American culture by incorporating both themes into their wedding.  These great photos were taken by Neysa Ruhl neysaruhl.com   She really captured the essence of the day.

I love that they all changed into traditional American clothing for the reception.

The reception took place at Lake Lynsay and the simple centepieces reflected their orange and red
color theme.

Kat Unger Weisel- 9.26.08

Kat and "Bubbles"(from previous post) last fall at Kat's wedding. Kat's bouquet was my favorite challenge with her specific requirements of unusual flowers including green sunflowers, eggplant mini callas, fern curls, chocolate cosmos, dahlia, hypericum, purple and green hydrangea and cockscomb to name a few. The addition of peacock feathers represented a "roadkill turkey" that she hit the day she got engaged. (The sentimental turkey feather was to be tucked behind her bouquet) I love her!

Simple centerpieces in three different styles were incorporated for the reception using green orchid sprays, key limes, apples and fugi mums. And of course, turkey, I mean, peacock feathers!

An outdoor ceremony at Sculpture Park was showcased by great pics by Mr. Mike Bresnen. Check out Kat's wedding featured in The Cincinnati Wedding Magazine.

What a cutie!

This organic piece and its twin were placed on columns to create an altar on the outside ceremony gazebo and later brought to the reception.

Her cake was absolutely awesome! Check it out! Created by Classic Confections Cakery
