Ct.Wedding Florist: Beautiful Wedding Flowers at Harkness

Bethany and Elijah were wed at the Eolia Mansion at Harkness Park in Waterford, Ct.
Bethany loved the gardens and had offered tours to tourists at the Mansion in the past.
Creating a natural garden wedding was such fun....Color scheme was a soft blue and lavender.
How can you go wrong.  We stayed traditional with her bouquet and added accents of blue and lavender. Her bridesmaid wore lavender, a great backdrop for her brighter color combinations.

Using the "Pergola" is just amazing for a wedding. We love to use the columns at the entry
and have the bride and groom stand in front of them. The backdrop for photos showcases all
the lattice work.....Mrs. Harkness would be proud.....

The foyer entry looked so beautiful with the traditional silver urn and lavender, blue and cream.
My photos do not do this arrangement justice.......It had a "WoW" factor........
Centerpieces were natural garden in silver revere bowls and complemented the table decor.

Check out:Gina, (senior event coordinator) for A thyme to Cook  She has catered to so many Brides and Broom's and guests at this venue.  I would like to thank her and her wonderful staff for the extra care and willingness to jump in. Team work is so very important and we as seasoned vendors know what it takes!!!  (yes, I know we have a little blur....but otherwise a nice shot of Gina)
So I send best wishes to Bethany and Elijah. It was a perfect setting for them and a
wonderful way to showcase their commitment to each other. Yay!!!

Ct.Wedding florist: Sara's Wedding Flowers at Madison Beach Club

 Sara had a very unique vision. She loves natural........branches, mosses, bark. I love challenges...
Everyone always asks, how did you come to this combination of flowers?  My artistic eye, and libraries of photos in my office helped pinpoint perfectly every flower Sara loved.
The large green flower surprised everyone........Can you believe that is a sunflower without
it's petals.........Look at the textures we created with that flower.........I loved it!!! 
 Madison Beach Club lawn is so intimate......I surprised Sara by taking our pedestals
and covering them with birch branching and mosses.  The glass cylinders gave our design
a modern feel but the 3 arrangements were very natural garden. And our chair makers
fit perfectly.
 Centerpieces were even more fun...........we did a very natural garden bouquet for each table.

Sara's Mom was a joy and I was thrilled to be a part of Sara's vision. I send her off with
such "appreciation" that I could experience parts of their life.  Jordan Catering   it is always
a "pleasure"......a GREAT TEAM  makes for a great wedding... And "thanks" to Marissa,(from Jordan Catering)  she co-ordinated every detail perfectly.

Ct.Wedding Florist: Stacey and Michael's wedding flowers at Water's Edge

 "Congratulations" to Stacey and Michael.......It was a beautiful day.  Stacey loved Sunflowers...
voila~~ Her bouquet was smiling as she met her groom at the wrought iron gazebo on the upper
patio of Water's Edge. 
 Aqua was a complimentary color........The bridesmaids dresses were a perfect backdrop for these
fun and beachy like bouquets.
 I did get a shot of Victoria setting up for Stacey and Michaels ceremony. Just a fun shot.
Hat's off to Stacey and Michael..........I appreciate being a part of their most wonderful day.
And Hat's off to Water's Edge..........they are always such a pleasure........

Ct.Wedding Florist: Kristin's Flowers at Harkness

 Love, Love this wedding has been a while since we designed a "Classic."  Eolia Mansion at Harkness Park in Waterford, Ct. is a perfect backdrop. I am sure the Mrs. Harkness would have been
proud if she stood on the staircase and had to respond to Kristen's beautiful dress, her flowers and how the mansion came alive........It was so beautiful........
 Blush, cream and often do I get to use these three colors.....We are always visually inspired by the modern trends, bright colors, clean lines,  these days and yet......."WOW"  This will never be forgotten........
It was a pleasure working with A Thyme to Cook.  Gina and her staff worked endlessly to help create a wonderful flow.......The Eolia is one of the most beautiful "Gems" our state has, and weddings are always just amazing........Thanks to Kristin and Ken, for a wonderful wedding........
