fall wedding inspiration

Kara + Leo

Kara and I had a blast planning her gorgeous October wedding. After many revisions and a venue change we landed on the perfect vision for her big day. That staircase was everything and we knew we had to play it up to make it a focal point for the ceremony and reception. Seeing her reaction when she walked into the room was one of the best moments of my career. So many tears of joy. It reminded me of why I do what I do and how much I love being a part of my clients dream day. Thank you Kara and Leo for including The Petal in your wedding day!

Jackie + Candido

When I met Jackie and Candido I knew we were going to work so well together. They are such an adorable couple, filled with love and enthusiasm for their wedding day (like all couples I know, but trust me when I say they are SO cute). Then when I found out they chose one of my favorite venues I was overjoyed. The Armour House is an incredible location for a wedding, from the dreamy garden landscape, to the marble details, the fountain and lets not forget that staircase…..swoon…That staircase is what dreams are made of. Jackie and I were on the same page when I told her we HAD To make that the focal of the room. And it was so worth it.

Caroline + Adam

Sometimes you get insanely lucky as a floral designer to meet a bride who puts complete trust in you and your designs.  And when that happens, magic happens.  I had so much fun creating a modern, elegant wedding for Caroline and Adam at The Dawson.  We were pleasantly surprised by the unseasonably warm November day which made this fall wedding truly perfect.

Amanda + Max

It's freezing outside, so I'm just going to chill in front of my computer and look at pretty pictures of flowers and happy couples.  Amanda and Max were a pleasure to work with.  When I heard she wanted an Italian Mediterranean theme for her big day I was all over it.  Here are a few photos from the amazing photographer Sally O'Donnell Photography and some taken by yours truly.
