Summer Wedding Bliss

































Can you believe that August is here already? Summer always seems to go too quickly. If you’re like us, you jam pack it full of everything we can possibly squeeze in! Being a floral and wedding designer, it’s an especially busy, but joyful time for me. There's nothing like a wedding to bring out the best of summer! I love working with the brides and helping them make their dream wedding a reality! My favorite part is pulling all the bits and pieces together that make each of their weddings uniquely theirs, you know…personal. I also love working with colors and flowers. Brides are getting pretty creative these days with their color combinations and are not inhibited by the old rules regarding what colors go well together. It’s all in the eye of the beholder! My wedding last weekend used bright pink, bright orange, bright lime and red. I’ve done bright weddings before, but the red accent was a first for me with this color pallet. Take a look at how it came together.The red gave it that little something extra! It was a crazy three days! It took us all day working on 12ft ladders to get the ceiling up and two full days to process and design all the floral pieces, working till late at night on last minute changes and additions. But it turned out great and my client was so happy and that’s what it’s all about to me! On my way home that night I was reflecting on the past three days and the insanity of it all. I thought to myself, “If I can deal with all that, and walk away from this feeling such tremendous joy and satisfaction, then I must have found a shoe that fits!

Eileen,
Love your floral work, the colors are gorgeous as is the variety of flowers used. The table arrangements with the gerbers and roses are really pretty and the large arrangement is spectacular! Keep them coming Pink Sister. Nothing brightens a day or inspires like flowers.

Eileen - your work is beautiful!
I did a wedding a couple of years ago in the same exact colors. It was an outdoor tent event and we hung those colorful paper lanterns all throughout the tent. That wedding was my first and only. It was a lot of work for one person!
I love what you did with the daisies on the tables too!

Awe, thanks everyone! I just love doing weddings! I'm working on two this week. One of the weddings was yesterday with the Recption on Saturday, and the other is also on Saturday! I'll be pooped by then! LOL! The wedding yesterday was so fun. They used a Princess theme and super bright colors. I'll post some pics when I have a few minutes! Thanks for taking a look!
