Featured Wedding!

We LOVE Weddings!

Around our offices this time of the year starts getting a bit Wedding Crazy!  Our phones are ringing off the hook and our staff is full of excitement and joy as they assist Brides, Mothers of the Brides, even grooms while they pick out candles and glassware that will be just perfect for their BIG Day!

One of our Brides from last season recently shared some of her photographs from her amazing Wedding!

Take a look and enjoy the amazing eye-candy from 
Nitin and Noreen's Wedding!

Gorgeous gold accents added to her spectacular style!

The happy couple getting ready for their BIG Day!
I simply loved the rich tone of her gown and all the embellishments!
Don't forget on your BIG Day to make sure to have some quiet moments that just the two of your share!
The location was simply gorgeous and adding a Tented Reception topped off the site!
Traditional dance, attire, and family all made this Wedding uniquely theirs!


The carefully positioned extra tall centerpieces were surrounded by lovely Cylinders with floating candles!

Mixing flowers and candle light add a soft and beautiful glow to the tables!
I love that they didn't forget the nighttime lighting as their guests left!  Cylinder vases with Pillar Candles inside gorgeous wire lanterns line the pathway with a beautiful glow to end a wonderful night!
Thanks so much for the candles! They really provided such a golden glow!

It's Wedding Season! Looking for Centerpiece ideas?

Do you dream about your Wedding day?  Do you dream about how to make it intimate, special, and memorable?


During the 1980's and 1990's there seemed to be a push to make wedding flowers as big and bold as you could to create quite a show!  Today, my goal as an Event Planner has been to make a wedding intimate, and to make the BIG DAY feel warm and cozy, where wedding guests feel like sitting down with each other to really visit and enjoy a special time...a time that captures the personalities of the couple I am working with.


I am really taking the focus off huge monolithic flower arrangements these days and focusing on ways to make a table centerpiece special, intimate, memorable, and really the focus of the event!  If you want people to visit and feel connected, make sure the centerpiece is below 14 inches in height.  That way, people can see across a table and visit with other guests.  Ask yourself, what am I trying to tell guests through the centerpiece design?  By adding tons of candlelight you are telling folks this is a warm inviting space.  By repeating the same flower arrangement on a table you are responding to simplicity, yet really engaging the onlooker by the sheer masses of flowers.  By layering tons of vases, in different shapes and sizes, a table starts capturing attention of the onlooker with surprises, and the surprises hold people's attention.  Placing flowers and candles loosely in glassware is pretty expected as far as centerpieces go.  But by having a portion of those flowers and candles floating or submersed in the water can shake up 'the expected' way to do it! 


What if the flowers for an arrangement were glued to the outside of the vase: now that is unexpected and special!
