"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

Krystal and Michael 6.27.09

Krystal's ceremony and reception took place at Norlyn Manor norlynmanor.com. She was an absolute dream to work with and her vineyard theme was one of my favorites.  Krystal was beautiful and petite and I can't but help hearing her big "New York" accent whenever I see her photo.  Thanks to Michael Bambino for these pro pics. michaelbambino.com

The bridal bouquet was a cascade with white orchids, freesia, mini callas and roses and accented with pink cymbidium orchid blooms

The girls carry vineyard inspired bouquets with grapevine, grapes and deep bacarra roses and orchid blooms.

The large staircase at Norlyn was embellished with clusters of grapes, vines and florals.

The same theme carried out in the gazebo for the ceremony

The cake was overdressed with willow, grapes and florals. Cake by Jerry's Cheesecake jerryscheesecakes.com

Ashley and Mark 6.26.09

When Ashley contacted me- she said she was an out-of-towner bride. I soon discovered that she was out of the country!  The Caymen Islands-no less!  She lived in a honeymoon spot where her husband is stationed but opted to have her wedding near family in good 'ol Cincinnati-doesn't seem right somehow!  Below are some photos she sent me-thanks, Ashley!

Ashley's color theme was hot pink and purple. The girls carried hot pink roses
and Ashley carried the same with accents of white stephanotis.

The tables held simple cubes with hot pink roses.

The aisle decor had tulle swags with bouquets of pink roses and purple ribbon streamers.

The ceremony and reception were held at Norlyn Manor norlynmanor.com

Amanda and Shane 6.20.09

Amanda and her mom, Kathy  and I became experts on every possible shade and variety of purple flowers that exist.  If you have ever compared shades of purple, you would know that next to each other the hues change, which I always thought was part of its charm.  Not so.  Too blue, too lavender, too pink, to red.  What we ended up with was a true purple that all parties could agree on- with a compromise on a little lavender that would compliment the bridal party gowns. Basically, the first choice.  Kathy said she was easy-she lied.  I can say that because I know her and love her.  Amanda kept the peace.  Im happy to say that after 8000 samples and photos and emails and calls- I succeeded in making them happy.  That's what Im here for.  (you knew I'd get you back, Kathy)

Amanda's bouquet was a pure mix of whites in hydrange, mini callas, peony and roses.

Flower girls carry hanging balls of lavender daisies.

I know it doesnt look too complicated... the girls carried white hydrangea with lavender roses and accents of purple lizianthus-a dead match to their gowns.  Yea!

The groom didnt have much to say.  Awful cute, though...

And there is my demon friend, Kathy with her husband Jim and their lovely daughter bride.

The aisles were lined with tulling and hydrangea clusters with matching "purple" ribbon.

Got to love the shoes!

This mix of white hydrangea, purple stock and lizianthus sat atop eiffle vases for heightened centerpieces.  The reception was held at Highland Country Club.

Thanks Amanda for hooking me up with photos from Lowry Photography lowryphoto.net
I'm poking fun- but you know I enjoyed every minute of it- you guys are great!
