On a hot humid day on a horsefarm outside Lexington Kentucky we were VERY thankful for no rain. I've said before, I always love working with flowers, but being a people person, sometimes my favorite part of my job is meeting with really interesting people. Well Madison and Matt are two pretty cool people! I think what initially attracted me to Madison was her amazing non-profit Eye to Eye Foundation. Check out their work in Ghana! While living in Ghana Matt came to vist and proposed! Pretty cool.
Their wedding flowers were full of bright colors and foliage accents. All the bouquets and centerpieces had lavender and fresh mint popping out at every and any angle. Oh it was hard to part with these blooms! The smell was phenomenal.
Madison wanted two varities of centerpieces, one filled with color and the other to have a fresh green / planted look. Both worked visually against all the white linens, napkins and chairs.
Eucalyptus was everywhere when Matt proposed in Africa, so it was a detail you found throughout their special day-the ceremony, the personal flowers, the centterpieces. My two favorite touches were the sprigs of eucalyptus tucked into each napkin and the eucalpytus wreath that hung on the mansion's front door.
Congrats to two awesome people!
Till next time....seek great design!
