Meghan & Nat have been friends of mine for years so it was a complete honor to be part of their wedding day. The guest list included a lot of dear friends of mine so it was super fun! Meghan & Nat are an adorable couple and their personalities were seen throughout all aspects of their wedding. They chose Cama Beach State Park as the backdrop for their August wedding.  Meghan wanted the flowers to compliment the surroundings so we added tons of ferns and foliages to her bouquet.  Everything used was local and gorgeous.  The only request from Nat was that there be some blue tucked in, which we achieved through eryngium. Their reception was amazing, filled with books lined with personalized library cards--Meghan & Nat's love story includes a library and is very sweet.  I was bummed to miss much of the day and night's activities but it was a very busy wedding season! I did hear that there was not only one but two dances performed for the wedding guests by the bride and groom. I wish I had seen that! It was really special to be a part of this day and see two friends start this journey together. Luckily, I get to see the rest of their continuing love story which has yet to unfold. All the best Meghan & Nat! 

The colors: yellow, whites, greens and blue.

Wedding season--mostly the summer months-- is my favorite time of year.  The local flowers available to us in Seattle are amazing and the colors are so, so vibrant.  Dahlias are plentiful, the garden roses are spectacular and everything is alive and lush.  Those summer months are what get us Seattleiets through our dreary winters.  Wedding season is fun and overflowing with love though the wedding planning process is long and usually begins months before.  Last March I met an adorable couple, Sara and Chris, for our first consultation. They described their wedding vision and we worked on making their dream wedding come to life.  They were getting married at an rustic old dairy farm turned event space called Dairyland a little less than an hour outside of Seattle in beautiful Snohomish, Washington.  The space is gorgeous! Dairyland has huge vintage whitewashed barn, beautiful gardens and millions of places for unique photos to be shot. Sara & Chris were married in the garden and had the barn set with long farm tables covered in lace for their barbecue and pie reception.  Each place setting had a row of pastels macarons that matched the flowers perfectly. It was a gorgeous day suited for a gorgeous couple. 

The colors: soft muted periwinkle, sage, blush pink, white, coral, peach and purple.

The haul: cafe au lait dahlias, juliet garden roses, dusty miller, light and dark purple lisianthus, scabiosa, peach and pink ranunculus, white hydrangeas, and spicy scented stock. 

 I am so glad to have been a part of the marriage of these two awesome people. Here's to a long happy life together!

p.s He sends her anniversary flowers all the time, it's pretty sweet!
