Joel & Susan 3.31.12

Planning Susan and Joel’s wedding florals and decor was like a whirlwind! It came and went in a matter of months… actually less than “2” months to be exact. Susan gave me a call to schedule an appointment to discuss her wedding florals in the end of January. When I was told her date I instantly thought… “This year?!” Of course we will always happily accept a wedding or an event on short notice, but it’s very rare to meet, plan and design within 2 months. But.. I was ALL for it!

When she told me that she would be hosting her wedding at the amazing Casa Monica Hotel in St. Augustine I became even more excited. That is truly one of my favorite properties. The architecture and character of the whole hotel is right up my alley. It’s just simply gorgeous!

So when we finally had a chance to sit down together; Susan, her wonderful mother and her adorable son, the countdown began. They shuffled in boxes of vases they had purchased, handed them to me and said do what ever you think would look great! Music to my ears… creative carte blanche! We discussed the details of some of the specific flowers we would use, the colors, the chairs and the linens.. and within an hour they were on their way out the door and before we all knew it.. it was Saturday, March 31st. Wedding Day!

Susan’s intimate wedding among family and friends went off without a hitch and her florals…. Stunning! Linens…. Perfect! And her chairs… Elegant!

Thank you Susan for thinking of us for your wedding. It was such a pleasure working with you and I love love love how everything came together. I wish you all the best in your life together with Joel! May you have many more babies… maybe?!:)
