Lauren & Jordan were married on a Thursday last August on a day that not only was her grandparents wedding anniversary, but her mom’s birthday as well!

I get all types of brides – from the super-planner, to the relaxed ‘I’m along for the ride’ kind. From the time I met Lauren, she was so calm and easy going. I felt like I asked her a bazilion questions and her answers were always something along the lines of ‘sure, sounds good’ (not her exact words, but you get the point!). I usually go over every little teenie tiny detail with my brides about their florals, and of course did so with Lauren. I like to make sure every little last flower is loved and that every spot that needs flowers is thought of. Lauren trusted me fully to almost just do whatever I wanted (of course, fitting her theme and colors!). I honestly felt like I could have completely changed her order and she wouldn’t have cared (I would never do that!… but you know what I mean!). I love when I’m trusted to run with it – and that helps me to really nail it! No restrictions on flower types or combinations! Anything I could have come up with, I honestly feel she would have approved without even needing to see the flower types. That’s how cool-as-a-cucumber she was. She actually reminds me of my little sister — another reason I love my ‘job’. Using all sorts of funky combinations of flowers isn’t always possible depending on theme, colors and textures needed. But, with Lauren’s I was able to combine some things that I can’t usually use in other wedding designs. Because Lauren had a rustic theme, many types that wouldn’t fit for other wedding styles were really a perfect fit for her style!

Okay, now for some flower drooling!

2014-05-29_0001Her bouquet with his boutonniere (that she made!) in a box that Jordan made!! How cool?!2014-05-29_0002The wedding was supposed to take place outside on the porch of the Riddick House (another cottage on Stevenson Ridge property), but as fate would have it and as a sign of goodluck – like her Grandparents wedding 65 years prior, it downpoured :-) So, we moved her floral pieces indoors, incorporating the large pieces onto the mantle and adding hand tied fern bouquets to the chairs – they were supposed to be a garland, but we reworked them to fit here! See, moving venues last minute can be just as fabulous!2014-05-29_00032014-05-29_0004Lauren included details in memory of family members in the ceremony space (the blanket on the chair)2014-05-29_0005The Lodge, Chapel – how cute is that burlap runner?!

Stevenson Ridge is FULL of all sorts of fun photo spots with antique civil war items – I just love it there! It’s like going back in time :D2014-05-29_0006oh man…2014-05-29_0007A locket with her grandmother’s photo2014-05-29_0008Some crates from her family farm that we used as flower props!2014-05-29_00092014-05-29_0010this blanket was also a tribute to a loved one2014-05-29_0011okay okay, I just loved her bouquets!2014-05-29_0012how cute are they?
