Flowers in Style Me Pretty

So, I recently was made aware that a shoot that I did with Maine Season's Events and Corbin Gurkin was picked up by Style Me Pretty! It was such a pleasure to work with both Megan and Corbin as well as Stacey with Swan's Way on this shoot a year ago. I truly enjoyed the last minute planning and detailing of the space and hope to be doing more shoots in the near future...
Many thanks to the whole team that worked on this shoot.

re: New Year's Weddings

Happy New Year!
2011 started off busier than ever with a New Year's Eve wedding and a New Year's Day wedding for ECFD. I was very thankful to mother nature yet again for the temperatures over 32 degrees which made my job a tad easier here in New England.
The New Year's Eve wedding was at the wonderful space at Frontier Cafe in Brunswick. The bride wanted a vintage but simple look throughout her wedding, yet a very different bouquet that would highlight classic elements and more garden/vintage as well. I was thrilled to rise to the tasks and loved seeing it all come together...especially in that space (which I have to say is so wonderful for events).
Congratulations of Lindsay and Nick!!
Here are some photos...

The next wedding was at the Marriott in South Portland where the bride had here ceremony and reception in the Grand Ballroom. Congratulations Danielle!
Here are some shots of her personal flowers, ceremony pieces and cake topper...

Best in 2011 to all. Here's to health, happiness, and lots of love and laughter for us all.
