Happy Sunday, my dear friends! I can't believe it's been eight months since my last blog post and my, how much life has changed in even this month alone! You will definitely be seeing more posts from here on out as I will be taking some time these next few months to update the gallery and shop on here. I have also been talking about doing a newsletter for the longest time ever, so I look forward to finally making it happen.
In the meantime, I really wanted to take some time to reflect back on one of my biggest projects this year, involving Mo and Varin's wedding. I've known Mo since my undergrad years and was completely honored to have a part in her special day, not only as a bridesmaid, but as her [paper] florist as well. Mo had sent over some photos of inspiration for colors and asked specifically for a cascade bouquet while incorporating some real succulents, four bridesmaid bouquets and coordinating boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen. Ingredients for the bridal bouquet included: peonies, carnations, roses, cherry blossoms, succulents and greenery, paired with ribbon cut to various lengths. The wedding took place in La Jolla and there was just the perfect amount of wind to keep the ribbons dancing freely. I poured everything I had into this project and am so unbelievably happy with the outcome of it all. Thank you to the bride and groom for letting me be a part of their special day and thank you to all my supporters in sharing this moment of reflection and gratitude with me.
Thank you to Julius Tanag and his assistant from The Light and Glass for capturing these beautiful moments of the wedding and the paper flowers. Please be sure to visit his recent blog post here for the remaining of the highlights of this special day.
