Caroline & Charles

Angela at A'vie called to ask a huge favor......."We have a bride, who is getting married next week and needs a florist, can you help?" I said sure, floral miracles are our specialty. So, after talking with Caroline, who lives in Chicago, I can up with a floral game plan. I called Larry our flower guy and set the plan into action. I wouldn't meet Caroline, until 6 days before her wedding, so I had some guess work to do to figure out the perfect flowers for her wedding to Charles. Here is what we came up with. The bride's bouquet of roses, mini call lily, freesia, & hypericum.
Here is Caroline with all her lovely ladies in front of one of the cottages at Sweetwater Branch Inn, where they got ready for the ceremony.
Angela had her hands full with just a few of the bouquets, just before the ceremony.
A close up of the altar arrangements...roses, carnations, spray roses & hydrangea.
Here are some of the centerpieces waiting for Erin at Celebrations & Amy from A'vie to prepare The Thomas Center for the reception.
The Spanish court decked out with linens & chairs from Celebrations.
A wonderful cake from KB Kakes was the highlight of the room.
And of course my assistant patiently waiting for us to go home.
From what I have heard, Caroline was very please with her flowers, she has even asked me to be her friend on Facebook. Thanks for the opportunity.
