Greystone Manor Wedding

This past September, I was at Greystone Manor doing wedding flowers with the wonderful Lori of Belle Fete Catering. I already posted a bit about this but wanted to share some of the professional shots by Michelle Turner. There are more to come from what she tells me which I am thrilled about as this bridal bouquet was a favorite of all time for me with the yellow gloriosa lilies!! Yum.

In October, 10.10.10 was a popular wedding day of course. I was fortunate to be at Sebasco Harbor Estates for this day and the sun broke at just the right time for this beautiful bride!! Congratulations Sarah!

re: MadGirl Fashion Show

Meredith Alex went mad again recently at the Port City Music Hall in Portland for a fashion show with the theme of " Hunt, Prey, Lust". I feel honored to have been asked to be a part of it. I actually was in NYC when the event transpired, so my wonderful associate set up the designs and shot some goes..

NYC marathon

Well, I have gone missing again for a little bit, but not without good reason. I have been tied up in projects here and there and the occasional wedding and, well, I ran in the NYC marathon. I try not to write about much personal in my blog, but really, this was so monumental in my life, that I can not help but to blog about it as well. I have been a runner for most of my life and after 20 years, I was in need of a grand finale and what better finale than the NYC marathon. It was amazing and aside from marrying an amazing husband many years ago and having my two unbelievable children..well let's just way it was up there in the highlights of my life for sure. I was so fortunate to be a part of a wonderful organization, Fred's Team, which enabled me to run the marathon. Fred's Team raised over $4 million that has gone directly to the Sloan Kettering Cancer Research Center...I feel honored to have been able to help and contribute to the dream of the eradication of cancer. I was supported by Fred's Team of course the day of; however, my family was amazing throughout my journey and right up until the end. My kind mother mothered my children in Maine, my father idly sitting by his computer and the TV to watch my every mile, and my dearest flower covered brother watched at various pit stops throughout the race (pictures will have to be in a blog at some point!) with last, but so very not finally least, my simply outstanding husband who supported my every step throughout my training and race. I feel so fortunate to have been able to make this dream a reality and feel even more fortunate to have such a wonderful family.
I guess that that is probably one of the many reasons why I love what I do. I still believe in the institution of marriage and family. I have been blessed with a wonderful support system (they are all crazy and so very imperfect, but who in life is not just that). And eight years ago, I became the luckiest woman to have enriched my life even more by marrying my husband. For lack of leaving out a cliche in this very sappy blog, "..he completes me..", but better than that, makes me a better person. So when we live in a world where the statistics do not look so hot for the institution of marriage, I still have great hope for that bond and the life of a family.
Anywho,,, now I will update you on the more professional details of weddings, fashion shows and images soon to come of some personal flower installations...
All the best,
