GRACE + TIM
Grace and Tim got married while they were traveling in Europe for the summer without any family or friends. Grace wasn’t sure if they even wanted a big wedding, but the family convinced her otherwise. She called us a little frantic and was wondering if we could pull off a whole wedding within two months. I reassured her we could, and it would look like she had been planning for an entire year.r.
I must have struck something in her because she believed in us and we pulled off one hell of a wedding. The two got married in front of a circle arch covered in foliage with touches of blush flowers.
The tables had wild low centerpieces in white vessels with dried PG hydrangea, quicksand roses, brown lisianthus, and of course ranunculus. The final touch was the rose gold plumosa fern.
When Grace walked into the bridal suite to view her bouquet for the first time, she cried and fell in love with the rose gold fern. She was so thrilled she handed us total creative freedom because she would have never asked for the rose gold fern.
The best advice I can give is to let your floral designer do what they do best. They have a ton of tricks up their sleeve.
Are you ready for a fun story about this wedding?
I probably shouldn’t share but I don’t care this is who we are.
Well, I knew Elliston Vineyards was dog-friendly from other events we had there, and it was one of those days I knew I was going to be gone too long for my baby pup to be at home alone all day. So I brought “my son to work.” It wasn’t a hot day, and we had a large van which had his dog bed in the back with water and food. As a good parent, I left all the windows rolled down. My baby sat in the front seat watching his mom work, but when I had to head up the hill for a minute, he got worried and jumped out searching for me.
After about 5 minutes I got back to the car, and he was gone. I started to panic. Then my baby heard my voice and came running up. I was so worried and knew how unprofessional it was, but I also knew Grace was a dog fan, and she had her pup on-site that day. As I was putting my baby back into the van so we could leave, Grace came up to me and asked if he was mine? I was so nervous and knew this was going to be my first bad review.
Well, I was utterly wrong, and Grace even asked to hold him while she was in her wedding dress. I COULDN”T BELIEVE it. She said he ran right up to her during photos when she felt she couldn’t smile anymore and was over it. She was so happy he put a natural smile of her face to get the shot and be done.
Moral of this story never bring your dog to work if he is an escape artist.
