I have been reading Florists' Review for about 10 years now (yes, while all my friends were reading Vogue, I was reading about flowers!) and my favorite issue has always been the Weddings issue; there are so many creative and impressive ideas out there! For the past 4 years, we have entered the Picture Perfect Weddings Contest, and while we haven't won (YET) we have gained recognition in other categories every year. This year our work was featured in 2 of the 6 trends spotlights! Dawn and I put a lot of effort into staying ahead of the trends, so that is a great honor to see our work highlighted in this section. Take a look for yourself!
Many thanks to Mirka Photography for providing us with these beautiful photos of Jenna and Mike's wedding at the Golden Inn in Avalon NJ. Our photo is the middle photo with the greenish dresses. Her stylish bouquets featured yellow dahlias, bupleaurum, craspedia and orchids finished with a tropical monstera leaf.
We kinda swept this category! The "Logging In" trend has been popular here, thanks to our handmade pedestals and votive holders. We used them in Emily and Mike's wedding at Centerton Country Club in Pittsgrove NJ to showcase our floral pumpkins on her place card table and also in Molly and Rich's wedding at Running Deer Golf Club for her centerpieces. Many thanks to the amazing Tina Jay Photography for sharing these photos with us!
We are also inspired by other winners in the magazine...I am kinda loving the floral garland roping off the aisle in the "Best Wedding" feature done by Absolutely Flowers in KS. I can do that!
For the "Best Ceremony" category, check out this before and after of the white pergola. That certainly deserved the win! A total transformation! Way to go Beyond the Garden gate florist in Oregon!
Had to include this page showing "Best Reception" at the Bonnet Island Estate on LBI, featuring the work of Colony Florist. We are heading there on Friday to do a walk-thru with a bride and will certainly be using this as inspiration.
As always, thanks to the many photographers that take the time to share their work with us. We couldn't do it without ya! I wonder what weddings we will send in next year....will it be your wedding?
