Spring Wedding

It was such a pleasure working with Lauren, her now husband, Greg, and her very fun mother, Margo for this fun May 2010 wedding.

All photography was done by Kelly Braman.

Working with Aletha from Pearls Events is always a joy!

Holiday Decor

I have a wonderful friend and client who I met years ago when I had a booth, selling fresh cut flowers at the Rockford, MI farmers market. Annie loves a house full of flowers and she would not only purchase, enjoy and rave about the flowers that I grew, but she would also share stories, smiles and sweetness every time she visited us at the market.

As the years rambled by, I was able to decorate for her daughter's wedding at the family lake home, enjoy occasional coffee dates and shopping excursions, and hear of the emotions that accompany empty nest syndrome (which I can relate to more now that my oldest child is a senior in High School).

I also have the gift of being able to decorate the lake home at Christmas time, in anticipation of the annual company Christmas party that is held at Annie's home. As Annie and I work together placing some new and some well loved decorations throughout the home, stories still fly, laughter rings out, and both Annie and I come to the end of the process feeling richer for the friendship that continues to evolve.

These first 3 photos were taken at my house, before I took flowers to Annie's...

Newly remodeled great room...

Annie hired Gallery Interiors of Rockford, MI to begin transforming the home. Phase One included the foyer, great room, staircase, and master bedroom. Their work is beautiful and they added their finishing touches to the mantle and staircase decor. I can't wait to see what Phase Two will include.

Works in Progress

I'm guilty of not updating my website quite enough. Partially due to the delay in getting professional photographs from the photographers, and partially due to me. Every so often, I'll post works in progress floral photos. There are so many weddings that I've done, taken my own snapshots, and just haven't added to my site. This will just be the fun, check it out area of some of the weddings (flowers and settings) that have taken place. The following photos feature flowers from 3 weddings that took place in September, 2010. Enjoy!
