Our Vendor of the Month for July is Greenworks! They are so wonderful at what they do, flowers truly become artwork in their hands. We wanted to showcase some of the fabulous work they have done over the years and also get their top five tips when is comes to planning and choosing your wedding flowers. Here’s what they had to say…

1. Do some research before you meet with the florist. Think about what you like and do not like, what style you are looking for, and bring pictures of what you see online or in magazines.
2. Ask what flowers are in season. This helps especially with cost control. Consider the color(s) you want rather than a specific flower.
3. Know your budget. Don’t forget to account for a delivery charge and tax. Typically, the cost of one plate of food should be about what you spend on your centerpiece.
4. Splurge on your bouquet if you can! It will be in your photographs and possibly preserved. Make it special.
5. Trust your floral designer and their team. They want to make your wedding beautiful!

In this month’s newsletter we featured MBK Photography and we have always loved working with Michael! Recently, we collaborated on an inspirational shoot at the historic Anderson House. The mood for the shoot was centered around vintage glamour inspired by the grandeur and romance of Anderson House. The first gown pictured, with long sleeves, is by Berta Bridal. The second gown is a strapless mermaid style by Inbal Dror… enjoy!

Brides are experimenting with so many colors and textures when it comes to their weddings! The color trend is especially prevalent in their flower choices. By mixing different types of flowers, colors, and greeneries brides can add unique depth to their arrangements and bouquets. This season we wanted to showcase some of our favorite fall bouquets from some of our favorite local florists.

April Showers, Bring May Flowers!

Come see all the lovely floral arrangements that Maryam Flowers brought us today!

Here is the lovely Gabriella, displaying Maryam’s pretty light pink peonies!

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Maryam of Maryam’s Flowers. This week, we have the pleasure of having some of Maryam’s floral arrangements in the store and they are gorgeous. Not only are the gorgeous, but each arrangement smells amazing. It’s like a fresh spring garden in the store. Thank you Maryam for the flowers, we love them.
