Playing with the Fall

Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the 
earth seeking the successive autumns.  ~George Eliot

fall is in the air

“Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile.”
William Cullen Bryant

Oh how we love pumpkin season.  You did know this gourd-ish squash has its own season, right?  Winter, Spring, Summer, Pumpkin.... We anxiously anticipate it every year.  ~Trader Joe's Fearless Flyer, October 2010

everyday I look at flowers
and everyday I am amazed by their beauty

Their petals, 
their color
big or small
alone or bunched together

they are beautiful, each and every one

here are works by other designers that inspired me today:

DJ & Ashley Schwartz Wedding


Traveling with flowers is always an interesting challenge but this wedding was well worth it! Creating the florals for this beautiful wedding was a blast. Everything Ashley picked was fabulous and it came together so well. I was lucky enough to attend this wedding as well so I got to enjoy the stunning scenery as the sun set and the lights on the chandeliers started to twinkle. It was a perfect night under the Nevada sky.

Ashley was a STUNNING bride and her wedding party was just as fabulous. What set this wedding apart was the attention to detail. I was amazed at all the well thought out and well executed elements included in this wedding. Laura Stagg at did an amazing job at making sure everything at this event was beautiful and that it went smoothly all night. 

I love the personalized saying on the marquee

More wonderful moments from the night
