Martina and Matteo's Italian Wedding!

Martina shared a few snap shots from her recent wedding with me! She ordered the burlap bouquet and boutonniere in February and her wedding was this past weekend. 

She wrote to me today and said:

Dear Janice,

Saturday I finally opened the box with the bouquets you created. They were the most beautiful bouquets I have ever seen. My wedding has been special thanks also to the these perfect items. Thanks a lot, it meant really a lot.

You'll be forever in my heart!

Martina

Martina and Matteo met while they were in high school together in Torino, Italy and 11 years later, they decided to get married at the Antico Borgo Monchiero! 
It's always exciting to get pictures from customers and be able to be a part of their special days, a little more so, when its from another country! Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your wedding and sharing your pictures with me. Congratulations and best wishes for many years of love and happiness together! 

Martina carried a medium size bridal bouquet with navy, wine, white, and grey burlap roses and white lace.
Matteo had a wine burlap rose boutonniere.

All Because Two People Fell in Love

All Because Two People Fell in Love - you know, that's what this little handmade business of mine is all about! Celebrating the two people who fell in love, whether it's weddings, new babies, big life events, or honoring the lives of those people as their families say farewell.

Last week, I did a rush order for a lady who is celebrating her 50th wedding anniversary, this week. She wanted a sunflower bridal bouquet and coordinating boutonniere for her husband. They were decorating with mason jars, lights, and sunflowers and she ask if I could make one of the mason jar tin signs with the saying "All Because Two People Fell in Love". 

1. A fiftieth anniversary is a big deal and should be celebrated! 

2. I love when customers ask / suggest new things, because that lets me know what you want and I can help bring that to life for you. 

3. I don't mind rush orders and always try to be accommodating. In fact, deadlines are quite motivating! (I will add, that for all orders, I don't ship till payment is cleared, so echecks or Paypal funds that come from your bank account are not recommended on a tight time frame, as they take 3-5 business days to process.)

Jenny said  "you epitomize all I hold near and dear..." as she looked around my shop and decided to add the heart with wings tin, if I could add a quote to it. Well, y'all all know that I love the quote "What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?" -e.h. and I was happy to paint it on there for her. As soon as the paint dried, everything was packed up and California bound!

I was able to cut out some additional signs this week and added more Welcome Y'all signs in a mini and regular size, plus I left one mason jar blank, that way it can be personalized with your name, favorite quote or short saying.

And since I loved what Jenny suggested, there's another one of these signs ready to go and it's appropriate for so many occasions - wedding shower gift / wedding decorations, anniversary party, celebrating a new birth, or just because... two people fell in love.

P.S. I'm working on lots of new wedding bouquets in different styles and fabrics and a couple sneaked in these pictures! Big reveals coming soon!
