The summer came and went in a hot haze as events were back! Here’s a look at a fun August wedding with Sarah McErlean’s Park & Bloom, a reminder of the joy found in working with wildly talented people. The groom’s family was connected to Prides Corner Farms and Sarah had two tractor-trailers-full of their house grown blooming plant product to work with, her pick of the crops, literally. The bride’s request was for COLOR so it was a treat to get to work with the best late summer COLORS in all of their farm fresh glory. We foraged dew-kissed Peegee Hydrangeas and Rose of Sharon Hibiscus at dawn for the ceremony aisle and arch decor. For the reception, a massive working greenhouse was emptied and refilled, one green or blooming pot at a time, to create the magically alive party setting. Sarah’s hanging plant installations and artful centerpiece displays cozied up the cavernous glasshouse. Must have been lovely all aglow in the warm summer evening. The Slow Flowers a.k.a. local flower movement would have been proud, flowers truly don’t get any more local than that!
