White and Silver Wedding Bouquet

I told myself no work, for 1 month while I regroup from a rather...challenging year.
HOWEVER, I had a last minute request from a very special bride this past week.
I have been on my much needed vacation away from the world and my automatic responder has been on for two weeks while I travel to Boston through the New Year.

But them a rather curious email came through and while in bed,
I managed to reach over for my laptop and read this:
"OK,I have a secret, the flowers I asked you about were for me. I'm getting married on Monday."


I called her from my cell phone from bed immediately to hear the story. Hahah!
She told me she was eloping and that she wanted me to make a quick bouquet for her with the only instructions being that I use white flowers and meet her at City Hall at 2:30.

So I ran frantically through the flower market on a Monday after the Holidays with zero luck on the flowers that I had in mind, but I did find some callas, football mums, alstromeria, stock, tulips, and dusty miller.

So here is what I whipped up. :)

I finally got a change to use my rose applique on the handle of the bouquet- score!

She forgot to add in a boutonniere so I made one just in case she wanted to use one :)

So I wish my lovely White Elopement Bride MUCH love and happiness!
You looked beautifully radiant with happiness and I am happy to have been able to be a part of this! xoxoxoxo

Winter Wonderland Bride

I'm not dead.
I lure you in with a picture, and then
BAM! I hit with an
"i'm sowwy"{sad face}
In hopes that you will accept my apologies for my lack of posts.
For those concerned- yes...I'm aliiiiive.
I have been busy personally and professionally and I didn't even want to half a** my blog until I had the time. Umm...except that's not now, this is just a teaser pic so that you know I will be back. Before Christmas even, just not until I finish out my latest project that will consume me till the 18th of this month. THEN, its a new me baby.

BTW~this pic is from an all white wedding at the Sir Francis Drake in San Francisco over the weekend. It was stunning! The Bride wanted to create a winter wonderland and that we did!
I will share soon =)
