22 May

There have only been a few times when I feel a little intimidated by clients, but this particular job was one of them.  One of the brides mothers is a florist and she grew up around floral all of her life and had a very definite vision of what she wanted when it came to their flowers.   The bride’s vision was eclectic and rustic and they had been collecting items and crafting elements for some time.   When I opened up the many boxes of vases and props they wanted me to use for the centerpieces I wasn’t quite sure where to start.  I knew a lot of time had been spent decorating table numbers and gathering all the pieces so it was up to me to make it all come together.  I spent the next few days spreading it all out in my living room creating “clusters” to create each centerpieces.  In the end it all came together and the brides were ecstatic!   Never before have I received a review the very next day praising my efforts!

The brides bouquets were another challenge since I didn’t want one bride to outshine the other.  I also like to have one common element to bring them both together and one of the flowers I had ordered didn’t come in as I had requested!  In the end it all worked out, as it always does – but it is hard to mess up too bad when mother nature provides us with such beautiful flowers to begin with.

The ceremony and reception was held at the Edgewater Hotel on the Seattle Waterfront.  Two large urns filled with a large colorful arrangement and blooming curly willow branches flanked both sides of the alter area, which happened to look out at the beautiful Puget Sound.  Even when it started pouring rain, you couldn’t help but admire the lovely backdrop.  They even had large gold vinyl letters placed on the window which added another personalized element to their ceremony.
