Haley and Justin's Wedding

Planning a wedding during a pandemic requires some creativity, but it can be done! Last summer, Kelly contacted me on Facebook and ask if I could create wedding flowers for her daughter's wedding, which was two weeks away. Well of course! That weekend was open on my calendar and we made it happen! Recently, they sent me pictures from the wedding and give permission to share a few of them. 

Haley and Justin, the happy bride and groom!

How sweet is this - the bride with her mother and grandmother. 
I was able to source the absolutely gorgeous dahlias from a local grower that I had been reintroduced to at last summer's farmers markets that we attended. Along with the dahlias, we used roses and hydrangeas for the bouquets and added just a little touch of blue in the arrangements that were placed on pedestals.
As extra precautions, they even cut the wedding cake on the stage, so everyone would remain seated in the church and spaced out, along with having a live stream of the wedding, for others to view from home.
The bride presented her bouquet to her grandmother after the wedding, You can see the love and special relationship these two have. 

We had certain event attendance restrictions at the time and the family took all that into consideration when planning the wedding. That was one reason they waited till closer to time to make sure events didn't get completely shut down. I was refereed to Kelly by a mutual friend and then we discovered we had actually met at one of our shows in 2019. We did not have any face to face wedding consultations and when I delivered the flowers to the church, only the father of the bride was there. Even though it was limited, they still wanted to celebrate the wedding with nice floral arrangements and create a special day for the bride and groom.  I have often said, even though it was a rough year for many, there were also many things worth celebrating in 2020, just like this wedding and the love between this couple. 

Thank you Kelly for allowing us to create the flowers for Haley and Justin's special day and for providing the pictures for us to share. Wishing many years of love and happiness to the bride and groom!

  1. Words can't begin to express my appreciation for the gorgeous floral arrangements you made for the wedding. They created a beautiful backdrop and accents that allowed Amanda to capture perfect, beautiful moments and creating lasting memories for Haley and Justin and all who attended and watched online. With things shutting down during the second wave of Covid, so many things had to be saved for the last minute. I feel like you were a miracle worker pulling it off with such short notice. It was as if you had months to prepare! Pulling off a safe, socially distanced wedding during a pandemic had many challenges but, thanks to you, the flowers were not one of them! I will be forever grateful that God placed you in my path( and thank you Sunni for the referral)!


I appreciate all of your comments and read them all! It makes my day to hear from you!
