I am finally catching up on some long overdue blogging. This wedding was a very special one for me. Kelly, the bride, grew up right next door to me. Funny thing, we lived on a small cul-de-sac in the lower Hudson Valley named Floral Road. When Kelly and I sat down to plan her wedding flowers, she told me that she was happy to see me at work as a floral designer. She said it made more sense to her than my past teaching career.
We grew up running around the woods, covering ourselves in mud, trying to build forts, putting on neighborhood plays, trying to save little creatures and playing with stray animals. She and I have always been a couple of old souls. We spoke with British accents whenever possible; discussed china patterns and pewter; we carried parasols, not umbrellas...all by age 7. We had little supervision, but that was the norm for the time and place. We were explorers, scientists, royalty, wild animals. We made up games and secret languages. My childhood adventures with her have played a major role in who I am today. Reconnecting with her and meeting her now husband, Rob, was such a joy! I am so very honored to have been a part of their wedding day. I am thrilled that they found each other - partners in the adventure of life, sharing their own secret language.
Thank you to Rob Spring Photography for sharing these lovely images!
Congratulations Kelly and Rob!!!!!
