Tara and Bosco

Meet Tara and Bosco! I have to say I have loved having a Bride named Tara... And she is the best Tara I know! She was referred to me through Courtney of Joyful Weddings and Events, but it turns out she went to High School with my son Justin. We did a little long distance planning as she was out of state for most of the time. But I love her style and how much fun she is to work with!

Her girls stunning in Black with Classic Red and White Flowers.

It ended up that the one thing a self employed Floral Designer never wants to happen on a wedding day happened to me! I ended up having surgery just 9 days before her wedding and could only participate in the day a little bit. Thank God! For my amazing team.... Darcie (from Joyful Weddings and Events) and Devon truly stepped up and did it all! With some help from Mark, Chris, Debbie and my Mom! The wedding went off without a hitch! I was feeling well enough that I was able to meet the handsome Bosco and see Tara in her GORGEOUS dress, dancing the night away (which if you ask me was always their goal for the day) =) as we went to help clean up. What a great, fun couple. Read more about the behind the scenes at

Their wedding was at the always fabulous Hotel Laguna! And photography was by Dominick Jr. Photography.

Megan and Dom's Wedding 8/23/2009 My Favorites of The Day

The post is long...I am sorry, I will keep the words short, but I wanted to share my favorites of the day.... Not about the flowers or the details, just about the love that was shared between them, family and friends. Beautifully photographed by Gabriel and Carlie Davis at More details from the wedding next week on look for it. Detailed Credits and Thank You's in my September 3rd post.

Megan and Dom's Wedding 8/23/2009 THE GIRLS


MY GIRLS!!!! Megan had 7 Bridesmaids, 4 Jr. Bridesmaids and 5 Flower Girls.. So many girls! But so much fun. Megan made wands for the Flower Girls ahead of time, that they could keep. The Jr Bridesmaids carried Flower Balls made out of Green Button Mums with black pins. The Bridesmaids each carried a different bouquet of one kind of green flower, Spider Mums (Katie), Dendrobium Orchids (Kristin), also Green Roses, Cymbidium Orchids, Hydrangeas, Lisianthus. The Girls were all so beautiful and well behaved... even the older ones ;-)


Megan and Dom's Wedding 8/23/2009

After launching the website a couple of weeks ago and spending hours looking at pictures, I realized I had never posted pictures from Megan's Wedding on the blog. She looked amazing that day and it was such a blessing to be with friends and family!

JT and Kendall Sheri Wade, I want to give her full credit for these amazing photos. I love when a photographer knows how to not only capture the Bride and Groom, but also the people and details that are surrounding them on their wedding day. Rarely does a bride notice everything she planned so carefully leading up to that day, she is swept up in a whirlwind of activity and emotion. I love that she can go back later and look at her pictures to see all the wonderful details and all the things that happened around them that day. A great photographer like Sheri manages to get that.
