Jaclyn & Andrew were the absolute dream clients- AND the flowers…
I’m still in awe and I designed ’em!
Nature is magic.
Let’s talk about this arch. All the flowers. All the colors. All the texture.
AND just a little edge, right?
Important planning tip: Always, always, go for the statement, rather than trying to spread the flowers (and dollars) everywhere.
Originally J&A had opted for a few smaller pieces (aisle markers, smaller pieces around the reception, that sort of thing) BUT this arch was important to Jaclyn, and at our design meeting, we rearranged the proposal a bit to make it a priority.
It was such a joy to create this beautiful bouquet for Jaclyn, full of peonies, roses, ranunculus, dahlias, and that gorgeous moody guava greenery.
Just put a (hundred) flowers in it. Right?
Absolute perfection. And that purple scabiosa?!
Andrew nailed the bright & moody jewel tones perfectly, right?
And those little bouts with their copper accents…
Congrats Jaclyn & Andrew! You two are the cutest!
And you’re not too shabby yourself Houdini Estate! (insert all the heart eyes)
And ALL the petals.
WHAT an entrance!
And her MOH doing double duty FTW.
THIS shot is always my fave!
That just-married bliss is magic.
And away they go!
Claire Pettibone FTW.
Show-off delphinium and all the jewel-toned details!
I loved the DIY cocktail stations. (make mine a Manhattan!)
CHEERS + huge hugs Jaclyn & Andrew!
It was an honor and an absolute pleasure to flower your wedding.

This is the strike crew of my dreams y’all. It might also be IS the booze + lovely lady + flower + chicken-filled party of my dreams. For sure. I first discovered Kate and her amazing blog/Instagram, Drinking with Chickens, last year when I wrote this article on Apartment Therapy.
We started chatting on IG and godblesstheinternet here I am creating some flower magic in her backyard a year later. She also took that amazing photo up there.
Kate’s garden is ridiculous. Like fairy-tale levels of perfection #gardengoals ridiculous. And I was so lucky she agreed that I could bring along my pal Victoria Gold Photography to snag some fancy florist shots. AKA, the kind, at big events, I’m usually too sweaty/busy to ever take, let alone look at, or post again.
Just hanging with my snips and some big ol’ fried egg peonies in the garden. Like ya do.
Victoria took a bunch of florist glamour shots of me in the garden, and we did things like torture poor Pip with a flower corsage necklace. He loved it. Obviously.
So calm. So not sweaty. Just jeuging up a flower-filled table in the garden, like ya do.
We’ve been making these modern brass wrist corsages for our wedding clients for a while now, and just love them! See also: we love making acrylic signs! And…No more 80’s prom arms, I mean, unless you’re having an 80’s prom wedding in which case- call me! 🙂
I just love love love these little pieces of floral jewelry, because each one is totally unique. It was really fun to watch guests select the one that spoke to them.
Did I mention that I LOVE attending parties that I’ve floralized? I am consistently humbled + awed by the effect beautiful flowers have on people and feel so lucky when I get to see my #flowermagic in action.
Are you ready for flower porn on a whole different scale though?
And a different angle. That garland though. She’s extra.
Iphone pic by yours truly.
Especiallye extra at this angle.
Photo + Gorgeous lil’ cupcakes by my pal Kristin over at Dine X Design!
Fun fact: Kristin and I met at Alt Summit waaaaaay back in 2012 and reconnected at this lil’ shindig! Again, godblesstheinternet!
More. More. More.
More chickens. More flowers.
More hot ladies with lap chickens.
Leave no surface or booze bottle unflowered. That’s what we say. After all, Kate’s blog is called Drinking with Chickens. And Koval did put the “booze” in the Boozy Garden Tea Party. And it was delicious!
Okay, maybe just one more tablescape. Is it weird that I wanna climb on that table and roll around in the flowers?
