If you described this table to someone, it may sound a bit too rainbow colorful. But they did such a beautiful job! The colors are bright enough to feel festive and cheerful without being an over the top kid's birthday party. I loved the colored glassware, the soft gold lanterns, and those stunning flowers. Well done!Read More

How much do you love this photo of Goldfish Kiss? This could be a cover of Vogue in the 70's. Love the golden tones, the messy hair, the lily she used like a hibiscus.

During my first conversation with the florist, I explained that I wanted peonies as my wedding flowers. Soft colors with texture, like the bouquet above. I then learned that both peonies and aneomes were out of season in October....so I needed to go back to the drawing board. This ended up being a blessing as I love what we ended up with! (Lesson-check out garden roses if you love peonies).
Below is some peony inspiration if they're in season for you.
Peony season is of course Spring. April, May, and June.
