Hello folks. I hope you are all enjoying the official start of summer today. We just strolled down to the piers and visited the military ships that are docked here for Fleet Week (you know you are getting old when the sailors are looking SO young!) but the heat drove us back inside.
On the flower front we completed two really great weddings this weekend. First up is a really sweet one at the Prospect Park Boathouse. The set up was break neck but I was able to capture some images before we scurried away. I am always a little more stressed than usual when the early to arrive guests start coming in before we are done setting up. But then again, I enjoy watching their faces light up as they take in their surroundings and greet each other.
The groom fashioned these rustic hand carved table numbers as well as collected old barn siding for the runners. We birched wrapped some vases and placed pitcher plants, furry scabiosa and pods inside. Otherwise coral charm peonies and the season's last ranunculos provided some soft color. The whole thing came together really well. It was a sweaty but satisfying day.
