I wasn’t blogging, but I WAS working all 2015. Let’s review some of my work from 2015, starting with this beautiful wedding at… Read more »

Flowers for The Club at Fairvue Plantation

Posted by & filed under Blog.

Each week I have the pleasure of visiting a super fancy country club in the Nashville area. Hold your horses – I’m not a member and I don’t get to play golf (which is a good thing because I would guess I am not good at golf since I’ve never played). Instead, I contribute to the fanciness by providing lovely… Read more »

Back in 2002 while I was living in New York City, working as a store designer at the Madison Avenue Crate&Barrel, the gods of amazing encounters blessed me with a chance to shake hands with a glassware customer named Paul McCartney. Paul is an all-time hero of mine and I still have a hard time believing… Read more »

Springtime Arkansas Wedding

I love Little Rock. And I especially love Little Rock for weddings! Like I have said before, I am excited when I’m able to design a bride’s bouquet for bridal portraits.

Any excuse to visit the Memphis Botanic Garden I welcome with open arms. As you may recall, I was here one year ago for my beautiful sister-in-law’s wedding.

Although we were in the greatest city on Earth for some pleasure, we were mostly there for business. Sallie and Clark’s wedding was on Saturday, Oct. 1st in Stamford, CT – just a 45 minute car ride from the Empire State Building. Stephen and I headed up on Friday with a car full of beautiful… Read more »

Honey Bee Photo Shoot

Posted by & filed under Blog.

The uber-talented Jennifer Hamilton of Mr. & Mrs. Events contacted me about designing the florals for a styled photo shoot at the historic Carnton Plantation in Franklin, and it was an easy ‘yes’. Basic ideas were in place, but after some further brainstorming, Jennifer and I had fleshed out the rest of the details… ‘Details’… Read more »
