The day before the wedding I went to the flower market. I was SO nervous and a little intimidated. I now can imagine how clients feel when I take them to the Design Center.... I just didn't know what I was doing!!! I wandered around a little to get my bearings and finally found a fabulous business with a fantastic owner who really liked my English accent!!
I knew I wanted to use all white flowers, like freshly fallen snow, the finest of lace or the drama of a wedding dress, the singular beauty of white flowers is simplicity itself. They are elegant and sophisticated.
We left the City at noon to head up to Tahoe. I had imagined a leisurely drive, a long bath, taking my time to do my makeup, etc.... but no, as the time went by I got nervous about getting to the venue, the flowers were still in buckets and the vases empty! We finally got there at 4.15pm.... the restaurant was open and I got to work - here I am - relieved that we made it in time! Notice the glass of wine to calm my nerves:
Here are the table decorations - I also bought the glass vases. The smell of the antique roses, the freesias and the eucalyptus was amazing:
