Garden Roses, Jasmine Vine, Snowberries, Ranunculus, Andromeda and other romantic flowers were used throughout. Photographed by Charlotte Jenks Lewis.

Mount Hope Farm Summer Wedding

Christine and Andrew 172Last July we designed the flowers for my cousin Christine and her fiance Andrew’s wedding at the gorgeous Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, Rhode Island. They wanted the decor to feel natural and casual with a summer party feel. There was no set color scheme, we just utilized what was in season and looking beautiful the weekend of her wedding. Zinnias, Dahlias, Garden Roses, Chamomile, herbs and other Summer blooms were used throughout lots sourced from local vendors at the Farmer’s market. Gorgeous photographs by Mandy Mayberry of Newport.

Pretty Cakes

Cake Erica ObrienCake By Erica O’Brien

I always love seeing the cake at every event. There is usually some correspondence between myself and the baker talking about flower choices and color schemes so that everything coordinates flawlessly. This past season we had the pleasure of working among the most talented bakers in the area and witnessed some of the prettiest cakes we have ever seen at our events! From a cake decorated with a lush cascade of fresh Peonies to delicate sugar flowers petals scattered down a cake each event had a completely unique and gorgeous confection that fit the atmosphere perfectly! I am always amazed at how these talented bakers can create such real looking flowers out of sugar!
