Textural, muted, and fragrant for a wedding on the waterfront…

Matt and Melinda are kind and thoughtful and totally in love. He sang to her as she walked down the aisle and was so genuine and in-the-moment that I may have gotten a little choked up. And… I met them in-person for the first time on their wedding day, so apparently I’m a softie. The designing happened via email and phone calls and started with Melinda’s request for blush florals and hints of silver. We have quite the collection of vintage silver and added in some antiqued mirrored trays, tall candelabras and the nude sequined linens to kick it up a notch. It was June, so I snatched up garden roses, foxglove, clematis, mock-orange, and the most beautiful branches of dogwood I’ve ever seen in my own two hands, and we ended up with this…

The blog gets a bit quiet when wedding season strikes, but don’t let the silence fool you. We’ve been working hard around here (and also taking breaks to enjoy summer too). It’s good this year, a better balance somehow. Not fewer weddings but maybe better systems? More efficient. Or maybe it’s just not September yet, and in a few months I’ll be singing a different tune. In any case, I’m enjoying the work and variety that each event brings. Sequins blush table linens one weekend to country blues the next. This weekend we’ll be working mainly with greens and whites, relying heavily on shape and texture for interest. Amidst the whirl of activity, I try to whip out the trusty iPhone now and then to document a bit of it all, posting to Instagram for those interested. If you are, I’m http://instagram.com/mckenzie_powell.

My sweet friends Lindsay and Pat got married in April, and you know… It’s always a little rough when you have to throw on a dress and heels right when your feet and back are ready for a hot bath, but ‘friend weddings’ are the best. And I was so glad we were able to contribute. It’s a great party. And everyone you like is there! Plus, her mom cried when she peeked through the drapes and saw the reception all set up and sparkling. Victory. And if the bride likes it too, that’s just more icing on the wedding cake. (Kidding.) I’m so happy for you L & P! You make a good pair. Photos by Chantal Andrea Photography.

Spring brides have it good. Better than they likely even know. Because in March and April tulip magnolia and hellebores collide, and the result is inevitably quite beautiful. Local fritillaria and anemones (thank you, Erin!) are just springing up, pieres still drips from the bushes outside. It’s a good time for flowers and hence, a good time for weddings. We’re prepping for another lovely collision this weekend and you can bet both stars will be in the show.

A couple beautiful photos by Buffy Dekmar of a rich woodsy bouquet we created in January. I like that even with so much bold color it still feels earthy.
