It was a beautiful day at Sundance when Brittany got married.
Lots of cream and blush pinks...roses, freesia, dendrobium orchids...our manzanita trees wrapped in custom-made chocolate brown taffeta bags... I look forward to seeing Brody Dezember's photos of the event -- Brittany is a stunner!
Thanks for the photos Michelle!

Sydney's reception was held at Highland Gardens. What a gorgeous little space!
Blue is often a tricky color to work with, especially when its meant to create such a prominent contrast in the decor. It think we played this one well, however. We kept things simple and it turned out lovely!
Thanks Sydney -- it was a pleasure!

I was contacted by someone local looking for flowers for his wife's 40th birthday (which happened to fall on Mother's Day this year). Apparently she had said that while she didn't want him to get her any gifts, she did want her husband to bring her flowers (and was expecting a $15.00 grower's bunch from Costco). Luckily, he had other ideas.
I met Christian and his children on the sly and had a chance to tour their beautiful Holladay home. After being shown all of his wife's most-frequently used spaces of the home, I came up with a design for each space and arranged to deliver and install the florals while they were out of town celebrating her birthday. Saturday evening came and Jessica and I made their home our last stop of the day. We had arrangements for most areas of the home: The kitchen, dining room, office, bedroom, laundry room, living room, family room, bath, even the outdoor patio tables. It was pretty fantastic! (Although Jessica spent the entire time waiting to hear the sound of sirens in the distance...even though I'm fairly certain the neighbors had been told of our impending arrival) On Sunday, the birthday-girl arrived home from her restful weekend to be greeted by her clean, decorated home. I did get a follow-up from Christian on Monday who said her reaction was awesome and that it was exactly what he had had in mind. I'm so glad it all turned out! I took these photos in their backyard (while I would have loved to have shown you how great it all looked in their home, I'd never take photos of someone's personal space!) and of course ran out of memory card space half way through. So here's what I've got. Use your imagination. :)
Can you imagine a sweeter gift???
