Jill & David's Canfield Casino Wedding

I just love when everything comes together. Don't get me wrong - I enjoy the process too (well maybe the processing of the flowers I could do without :-) )...but once I start creating the centerpieces and bouquets - all the months (or in some cases 15 months) of planning and that final 60 hour week on my feet getting everything to look just right is all worth it in the end when I get to see the reaction of a fabulous couple!

No more so than for Jill and David! They were planning a beautiful late spring wedding at the historic and gorgeous Canfield Casino in Saratoga Springs. I am always honored when a couple agrees with me that we are the right fit to work together to make their visions come to fruition!

It does not happen often, but sometimes (just sometimes) John actually has time to take a few photos of the pieces before we leave the studio to do the set-up. These are important because when we reach the venue - their is usually little time to take any of our own pictures of the floral details - designing all those final touches takes time! These first pictures were taken pre-delivery....

Bridesmaids Bouquets - the dark and light contrast of the chocolate cosmos and pale peonies make for a beautiful combination.

Tall lush arrangements elevated on a tall clear vase including antique hydrangea, pink peonies, garden roses, lush greens and dark foliage. Each table also 3 glass stemmed mercury glass votive holders of varying heights fro my rental collection.

It makes for visual interest when there are both tall and low arrangements in a reception room. These low, but lush footed bowl arrangements were beautiful! Each table also had 3 ribbed mercury glass votive holders.

I always try to add an extra touch to the Bride & Groom's table. Some greens and flowers did the trick along with the Bride's Bouquet that will be placed in the gold vase and act as the centerpiece.
