Sweet Summer Brides

I just had the pleasure of meeting with a sweet May bride, her sister and mother. As we munched on pumpkin muffins and sipped coffee, we firmed up some of the details that we had already been discussing via phone and e-mail. I was looking forward to meeting Alison in person, not just because of the rapport that we had already established on the phone, but because I had the pleasure of creating flowers for her brother and sister in law's wedding last summer. I promised Alison that it wouldn't take me as long to post photos from her wedding on my site and blog.

Andrea and Brian's July 2010 wedding was wonderful to work on for a couple of reasons...
1. Andrea was my daughter's 5th grade teacher at the time that we were planning the wedding flowers. She is a fabulous teacher, fun and organized, and really helped my daughter to be prepared for entering 6th grade.
2. Andrea and Brian's wedding reception was scheduled at one of my favorite venues in Grand Rapids - in part because it is where my sweet husband proposed to me there when it was formerly Gibsons. Mangiamo boasts a stunning location with a talented and professional staff. I've had the pleasure of providing flowers for several brides and grooms that have celebrated their special day there.

Most of the following photos were taken by Alize, our summer intern from France. The first 5 photos were taken by Andrea and Brian's photographer, Larissa Chirstine. Enjoy....
