It is always so special when friends and people we know, choose us to bring their wedding vision to life. When we first met with Emily we were so excited because she absolutely loved flowers. When we told her locally grown flowers in August are amazing and we’d be able to create the wedding florals with almost all locally grown flowers, her eyes lit up.
Emily and Justin’s wedding was going to be held at Blithewold Mansion in Bristol, RI. They loved that there would be gardens surrounding them during photos, the ceremony, and reception. Emily made suggestions of her favorite flowers and her vision for a standout bridal bouquet. With their ideas and vision, we got to planning our designs.
Week of the wedding: once we picked up some of the flowers we needed, we headed to Little Compton to set up HQ. We took trips to the local farmers and went to town cutting the flowers we needed, from variegated zinnias to cafe au lait dahlias. We were in heaven, until…the flowers started browning.
We were so nervous because those of you who live in New England, you’re quite familiar with humidity. Unfortunately, cut flowers really really really dislike humidity, more than we do. With flowers beginning to brown, we called up farmer Ty and requested to use his refrigerated 18 wheeler truck to keep our flowers while we weren’t arranging. This put our nerves at ease and soon enough, wedding day arrived and the flowers looked B E A U T I F U L.
We set out for the delivery of bouts and bouquets. When we arrived to deliver the bouquets to Emily, she could not believe it. She was so happy and in awe of the beautiful flowers. In that moment, we knew this is what makes all the work behind the beautiful blooms worth it.
This wedding was stunning, from chandeliers to bouts. We were so happy to be part of their celebration. This was one for the books. Congratulations Emily and Justin!
