It’s been a busy busy summer, but we’re back on the blog and with a real treat of a wedding. Olga and Paul celebrated their first year of marriage this weekend, and there’s no better time to share their special day. The day was filled with blush hues, white beauties and a hint of black. Even with a large guest attendance, the couple managed to make the day personal and intimate with heartfelt speeches from the bridal party and songs shared between the two.  Congratulations to our dear friends on their anniversary. Blessings for the years ahead.

Imagine my excitement as I opened my inbox this morning to find these goodies sent over by the lovely Maria Silva 🙂 What a perfect way to start the day!

Paul and Deanna were married in June on a gorgeous Saturday in a beautiful cathedral in Albany, NY. We were so honored to take part in planning their special day, knowing that it was going to be a fantastic event.

After going back and forth with the colors for the day, she settled on blush pinks and whites. The final results were breath-taking. See for yourself.

Bridal Bouquet: White Peonies, David Austin “Patience” Roses, White Freesia, white hydrangea.

Bridesmaids bouquets: 3 different bouquets with a mixture of Pink Peonies, David Austin “Phoebe” and “Miranda” roses, Pink mini callas, pink spray roses, Pink Lisianthus, & Dusty miller.

And we’re back! It’s been quite a busy beginning-of-the-summer with weddings almost every Saturday and lots of traveling in between (this part, i L-O-V-E).
Hope your summer is off to a great start.

Also, I’ve started a new blog to share my travels and life stories. Follow me here 🙂

Hi there! Today’s post features a wedding from August Twenty-Eleven. The couple Jeremy & Lyla, will probably forever remember the day not only because they were tying the knot, but also because Hurricane Irene brought them some planning havoc the day before. Talk about last minute changes! In her own words Lyla describes, ” Hurricane Irene threatened to sweep through my wedding but held of until the following day. Even so, the day before the wedding both our ceremony and reception site decided to close for the weekend leaving us stranded without a place to get married. We managed to pull ourselves together and within a matter of 4 hours we had a new church and reception hall to have a wedding in.”

This couple is amazing. I have no doubt that whatever unforeseen troubles come their way in marriage, they will be able to go through it and come out even stronger. We wish them the best of blessings for their marriage.

Bride’s Bouquet: Akkito Roses, White mini callas, hydrangea, bear grass
