A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege to design the personal flowers for Gabriella and Justin's wedding. She wanted something classic, elegant, and very traditional. Her bouquet was composed of ivory Vendela roses, white spray roses, white freesia, and one of my favorites, ranuculas.
The bridesmaids carried romantic hand tied bouquets of fuchsia stock, lavender freesia, pink Esperanza roses, and mauve spray roses. The handles were wrapped with a lavender organza ribbon.
When Gabriella and I met, it was 10 days before her wedding! That night I went home and got right to work on my " recipes". The next morning, all of the flowers were ordered, and to my relief - I was able to get all of my requests met. Typically, for a wedding, I make all of my orders at least 3 weeks in advance to ensure that most of my floral needs will be met.

Gabriella and Justin went on to celebrate their large wedding at The Italian American Club. She had mentioned that if all of her family from Italy were able to attend, the head count would have been up to 400 !!!! Gabriella, you were a such a beautiful and radiant bride, I wish you both many, many years of happiness!!!!
