This wedding is near and dear to my heart because the bride and I go waaaaayyyy back. I met Mary in elementary school and went to school with her through the end of high school. We were tight when we were youngsters and over the years grew in different directions but always remained friendly. I think there’s a magic of childhood friendships that just pick back up wherever you are in life. Mary and Taylor met in high school and created a life together in the years that followed. They have an incredibly sweet sort of love and it was an absolute honor to create their floral arrangements for their wedding.
Today we're throwing it wayyyy back to this classic car dripping with blooms in the middle of the Lost Dutchman mountains. You know my favorite thing is the story of a couple who runs away together for a simple but luxurious elopement adventure and this hits me in all the right places.
When I first met Becky, it was at her design meeting in the studio. She had arrived a bit early and I was halfway through a cup of ice cream when she walked in my door. She strongly encouraged me to finish my treat (winning serious brownie points in my book) and we started to chat about her and Jon’s wedding.
Here’s what stood out to me about our meeting:
- Becky trusted me to make some rad shit for her wedding and gave me very few guidelines
- Becky and Jon were so. insanely. cool.
These two met at a brewery and decided to tie the knot in the same place. So, they planned an intimate affair with just a few close friends, some beautiful blooms, and the beer that initially brought them together.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again but I absolutely love working with couples who are having non-traditional weddings. It was so much fun to help Becky and Jon flower their sweet day and we wish them a lifetime of love, happiness, and craft beer.
We're back today talking about a one of our amazing a la carte couples. Kylie reached out to us for personal flowers for her wedding day and had one specific request; she wanted us to include black knight scabiosa in her arrangements.
If you've been following along, then you know black flowers are MY FAVORITE KIND OF FLOWERS. Most people don't know that flowers grow in black (or allllmost black) but they do and the ones that do are AMAZING.
Kylie and Justin tied the knot in December so we worked with a cream and blush color palette for a design that felt perfect for the season... Without feeling like Christmas... It's a fine line, you guys.
