When I met Abigayle and John at our consultation at Peaberrys, I knew I wanted to work with them. First of all, I love when grooms are involved in the wedding planning process, especially when they come to the consultation! It’s so fun to get their input—plus it gives me a chance to see them together to determine their style and personality. If I don’t meet the groom at the consultation, I always make a point to meet them on their wedding day, ask them how they are feeling, and of course, help them pin-on their boutonniere (People really have trouble with this!). It’s moments like these that make my job very special.
But back to Abigayle and John! This beautiful couple is from Tennessee and I instantly was endeared to their warmness and southern charm and knew we would get along great. Abigayle has a great sense of style as you can see in her photos. She went with a slate blue dress for her bridesmaids and threw in a little nod to her southern roots by inviting her bridesmaids to wear cowboy boots under their long gowns. Such a fun detail!
We choose a ivory, green, and pale pink romantic color palate for her flowers, using garden roses, cymbidium orchids, sweet pea (her favorite!), hydrangea, dahlias, veronica (one of my favorites!), seeded eucalyptus, folded ti-leaves, and silver brunia to tie it all in with her dresses. Beautiful!
Flowers: Me, of course!
