Shou sugi ban! Shou sugi ban! Can you say it? How about say it three times fast!? Our sign was a long time coming as it took quite awhile to get the approval with all the codes, etc. BUT as an inspiration from @fixerupperfans we decided to shou sugi ban our sign! It is truly magical and now I get to use this term regularly and I am obsessed. Shou sugi ban= burned wood! Say it out loud, I dare you. Also, our sign creator and builder is one amazing person! @summerrr_2. 👊🏼👊🏼 Come check it out, you won’t miss it.

A fellow florist shared with me how he had left the industry for a period, and he returned to find his previous clients eager to engage him again.
"You're so lucky!"
"No," he overruled, I've worked very hard for it."
In horror, "I didn't mean it that way!"
"Of course you didn't," he said kindly.
These days I keep putting my foot where my mouth is.
BRIDES' very own @natalieosterling is hitched! The sweet celebration took place in the Catskill mountains where the couple was surrounded by friends, family, and LOTS of good food ❤️ Swipe left for all of the swoon-worthy details | 📷: @towardsthemoon 👗: @bhldn 👱: @nayfin 🏡: @spillianrevels
Jeannine and Ted did not get married under this arch. They got married in Jamaica after the power company tore up their backyard. Not a bad second, even if they didn't have a floral arbor like the one I made yesterday in that same yard.
Why? Well something else good came out of Duke Energy's misstep. Jeannine and Ted were inspired to create a backyard wonderland! Check out @dragonflycottageandgardens, a tiny wedding venue with a four bedroom house and backyard event grotto. Lovely work!
It's always fun to build with flowers without parameters. I think this color scheme should be called "sunset," an appropriate sunset on summer as our weather turns truly chilly.
We love Katie & Andrew's confetti moment image featured in the amazing #modernweddingblog
