Letter of Thanks

In the spirit of giving thanks, it seemed fitting that we write an open letter of appreciation.  We've had another banner year here at Ideas in Bloom and it's all thanks to the wonderful people we work with and those who have been our steadfast supporters.

Thank you to our wedding clients.  You welcome us to participate in one of the most important days of your lives.  We are always honored to be called upon to design for such a special celebration and appreciate the trust you have in our creativity.  You make it easy to love our work.

Thank you to our fans.  We are so lucky to have such a loyal and spirited fan base.  Your comments, "likes", and continued recommendations fuel our creative fire year after year.

Thank you to the amazing professionals we collaborate with.  Over the years we've created a network of such talented and kind-spirited colleagues.  Every event is a group effort and we so appreciate the work of our friends.

And the biggest thank you of all goes out to our families.  You tolerate our odd hours, the "shop talk" that creeps into dinner conversation, and our absence on weekends.  You volunteer as babysitters, assist with deliveries, and construct whatever we dream up.  You support our passion, allow us the space to let our creativity thrive, and are our biggest champions.  Thank you.  For without your support, none of this would be possible.

So happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.  We hope you have much to be thankful for this year as well.

Erin & Kevin’s Monadnock Area Wedding

NH wedding flowers 1


Erin and Kevin created a thoughtful and love-filled wedding we were so happy to be a part of!  Along with a bevy of talented family and friends, this couple crafted details for their special day that emanated their personality and exemplified Erin’s attention to detail.  From the small town church to the completely transformed reception hall, this rural New Hampshire wedding was a stunner from start to finish!  Feast your eyes on these equally beautiful photos from the very talented Shannon Cronin Photography

Sometimes I love a bouquet so much that I do what’s known as my “happy dance” when I hold the completed product.  Yeah, that happened!  Blush peonies, lavender roses, white stock, freesia, dusty miller, white veronica, fresh lavender and hosta leaves from the garden.

Preview from Stephanie Wales Creative Imagery

While I’ve been neglectful in my blogging (I know, I know…), Stephanie of Stephanie Wales Creative Imagery is making me look even more behind by posting about Kristin & Phil’s November 8th (!) wedding at Church Landing already.  You put me to shame, Stephanie. 

Having always admired her clear and dramatic signature style of documenting wedding, I was so excited to learn we’d finally be working together on an event.  Check out these stunning images (and touching personal comments) from Stephanie…
