Anne & Steve Married October 13, 2011

Fall Wedding Flowers Ideas in BloomAll the couples we meet with are excited about their weddings, but the energy radiating from Anne and her mother during our consultation was palpable!  They had clearly put so much thought and love into the planning of Anne and Steve’s special day at the Shattuck Golf Club in Jaffrey, NH.

With a traditional fall color palette as our guide, we chose seasonal blooms and incorporated personal details into the day’s designs.   Orange and burgundy local Dahlias as well as Broomcorn were combined with playful Gerber Daisies and Billy Balls for an overall youthful effect for the bouquets.

Anne is notorious among her family for painstakingly picking through pumpkin patches to find a perfect prize with a curly stem.  As a nod to her yearly quest, her bouquet featured tightly wound Fiddleheads and I crafted green wire spirals for Steve’s boutonniere.  The ring bearer carried a small sugar pumpkin with green wire detail and a twine tie for the rings (to match the wrap detail on the bouquets).

As can be the case, the weather in the Monadnock region weather proved a bit tricky, but Pam dodged a few brief rain showers and gusty winds to set up the outdoor ceremony.  Once the sun came out it was just stunning.

We softened the stone terrace by placing large Boston Ferns atop the pillars that framed the alter aisle.  Collections of Pumpkins and Gourds was peppered along the aisle and seating area as well.  The mothers of the bride and groom carried small posies of burgundy Gerbers and Fiddleheads in place of the usual corsage.

Here is the proud ring bearer, who looks a little wired from the goodies he snuck from the candy bar!  Also roaming the grounds pre-ceremony was the venue’s Chocolate Lab mascot who motors around in his cart making sure all the appropriate details are taken care of.

A Baby Shower for Baby O

This past weekend a couple wonderful friends of mine threw the perfect baby shower.  Family and friends gathered to celebrate the the fast approaching arrival of Baby O.  Pam, of course, provided the flowers.

So many people chipped in to make the day great.  Those yummy chick cookie favors were made by Kelsey of Butternut Bakery.  They are the only sugar cookies I’ll eat!


THE Cake Lady (and great grandmother to be) outdid herself yet again with a barn made of cake surrounded with clay figurine keepsakes.  Mom, Baby, a watchful Kiera dog, horse and sheep are now in the nursery.

A big thank you to Caitlin & Mona, my partners in crime in a former professional life, for hosting such a wonderful day!


And thank you to Brooke, who captured the memories while wrangling a toddler at the same time.  That’s talent :)
