What a pleasure it was working with Carla and Brandon. I have to say, Carla’s sweet laugh was infectious. As I was working around the beautiful grounds of Sassi, I could hear her laughing and it was making my assistant and I smile and laugh so much. This is one of the great perks of my job, to be around such happiness all of the time. I am so grateful.

What a sweet ride!
Her girls bouquets were made of peonies, purple hydrangea, freesia, cabbage roses and lisianthus. Carla’s bouquet had the same flowers but in an all white version.
What a sweet little flower girl! Adorned with a custom head wreath and floral basket created by yours truly.

Ah, the sweet smell of peonies! To me they look like a GIANT rose with tons of petals, they are so incredibly feminine. Right now is the strong season for peonies (around Mother’s Day).

The peony or “Paeon” was named after the Greek god of medicine and healing. It is also the traditional floral symbol for Mongolia and China.
I don’t use peonies very often because they are SO expensive, I happen to be using them this weekend in a wedding. My bride loves peonies but to do an entire wedding of them would have blown her budget. I suggested to her that we just use them in her bridal bouquet and use cabbage roses for rest of her wedding. Cabbage roses are large and have a high petal count so they look a lot like a peony without the high price.
Thanks for joining me for Floral Friday!
