Sometimes when we finish an event, its a little bittersweet. Shelly has been our client since March of 2007 -- 13 months! -- and now she's married and I for one will miss her! Shelly was by far one of the most organized and creative brides I've worked with yet. She's a graphic artist and so much of her personal touch could be seen throughout the event. Like many of our other super-talented brides, she designed her own invites, place cards, etc., and it was so fun to see how a few common threads can pull an entire theme together. The ceremony was held at the Cathedral downtown with dinner and dancing following the ceremony at The Memorial House. Her bouquet featured Titanic and Sweet Akito roses, pink ranunculus, stephanoits, peonies, hypericum berries, curly willow, and brown ti leaves. The centerpieces were double-blossoming cherry branches with accents of cymbidium orchids and votives at the base. We also used pink tulips on the fire place and in the lounge area (as well as submerged roses) and made the coolest arch out of curly willow with strung hyacinth and stephanotis blooms hanging from its branches. Lots of fun. I'm excited to see how her photos turn out and hope they have a fabulous time honeymooning in Tokyo!
