"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.

Erin and Adam 9.26.2009

One of my favs this year- a great fall wedding with rich oranges, burgandy and browns. Erin and her mom, Terri- had major input and ideas- since both are really creative.  Got to love that!  Erin's dress also rates as one of my top 5 of all time- thanks, Terri for sending pics- taken by White Imageryhttp://www.whiteimagery.com/

The girls carried bouquets of bi-color orange roses, pumpkin dahlias and berry accents
Erin's bouquet was lush in whites and creams

The reception took place at The Cincinnati Art Museum.  The table settings were amazing thanks
to Terri's great vision- chocolate cloths, gold chargers, candles, fabric and coffee bean votives.
The centerpieces were a mix of burgandy and oranges full of texture and in glass cubes.

The church pews followed the organic theme with clusters of hypercum berry

Jacalyn and Daniel 9.19.09

Jacalyn had a clear vision of having her "plum" dressed bridesmaid
carrying bouquets full of orange hues while she carried a bountiful bouquet of all shades of purple. Thanks to Este Images for these great photos. estesimages.com

The centerpieces followed suite two sizes of arrangements- one flavoring purple and the other in mix of oranges.

The family designed this colorful arch to compliment the theme- pretty cool, huh?

This took place at one of my favorite venue- Norlyn Manor (norlynmanor.com) Contact Lynne she's the best!

Kim and Don 9.19.09

Kim made an exquisite bride and such a pleasure to work with.  She wanted her wedding to reflect an earlier era of grace and simplicity reflective of the early 60's. Her bouquet was a elegant cascade in creams and antique rose to compliment her girls' gowns. Thanks to Amanda Egan amandaeganphoto.com for these glamorous shots.


I love these shots!

Kim's centerpieces reflected her simple theme. She supplied gold and cream teacups
to fill with white hydrangea and football mums.

Carrie and Sam 9.12.2009

I loved Carrie!  She was so great to work with and had such a genuine loving spirit.  Her wedding reflected exactly who she was-it was personal and intimate and hosted by her mother-in-law who had a back yard filled with hundreds of amazing flowers that any florist would die for! I, literally could have layed down in the flower beds and slept there.  It was held in September and the weather couldn't have been more lovely. These lovely pics were taken by Amanda Eganamandaeganphoto.com Thanks Carrie for sending them to me!
