Greg & Suzy Armstrong - July 10th 2010

Ok, so I am two months behind in my BLOG entries, the only excuse I have is we have had a wedding or two every single weekend since late April and are booked solid until mid November. This 2011 season, we will start right back up in January!

I had a really good time planning Suzy's wedding! Suzy & I became fast, personal friends and bonded over planning her wedding. In the end, the event was awesome and went so smoothly! It was well worth the effort and sweat equity that went into everything. Suzy and Greg had their wedding and reception at Pine Knob's Carriage House in Clarkston.

Suzy was a beautiful bride with an amazing vision and she spent a lot of time planning her decor. I had these vibrant "burnt-ish coppery orangy pink" linens in a deep pleated satin made especially for her event. They coordinated amazingly well with her bridesmaid gowns from David's Bridal in the "Guava" color.

Her flowers were awesome! Her bouquets were made of Yellow Billy Balls, Burgundy Gloriosa Orchid Lilies, Fern Curls, Green Cymbidium Orchids, Black Baccara Roses, Yellow Roses, Coral Roses, Pin Cushion Protea with the handles of the bouquets wrapped in Vibrant Green Apple Satin Ribbon.

Her ceremony was out in the gazebo behind the Carriage House so we added a splash of color to the rich color of the decking in the gazebo with a bright mixture of more vibrant rose petals and wrought iron floral stands with simple arrangements of Roses & Orange Gerbera Daisies with Curly Willow Branch accents. These were moved after the ceremony to the fire place mantel for an added touch.

The centerpieces were sets of cylinder vases w/amber water in them topped with a floating candle nestled in a bed of rose petals. The other half of the tables were tall cylinders filled with curly willow branches adorned with hanging rose blooms, Green Cymbidium Orchid blooms & Crystal Garlands.

Cake was also AMAZING!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE working with Dan at Flower to Flour in Royal Oak. He made a gorgeous cake for Suzy and Greg. He decorated the cake with large vibrant Green Cymbidium Orchids, Fern Curls, Roses & Burgundy Gloriosa Lilies.

Again, I feel blessed I was able to share with another amazing couple their special day. Good Luck in everything you two do!!!
