After working on several events together I couldn't have been more excited or honored when Amanda, an event planner herself, asked me to design the flowers for her wedding day. Knowing the ins and outs of weddings and she chose me, so let's just say there are few greater honors and this one was going to be a special one.
From the start the wedding was a dream - the color palette, the blooms and working with Amanda! So with her full support and trust in us, the At Last Florals team designed the laid-back but oh so romantic bouquets and centerpieces. Wedding day brought more rain than we care to remember but our couple took it in stride and Lake Iamonia Lodge was going to be the happening place to be that day, no matter what!
Rustic boxes filled to the rim adorned some of the guest tables while others featured clusters of David Austin Roses. Candles everywhere, burgundy and peach flowers, gray accents and rustic decor brought an elegant ambiance to a little retreat hidden deep in the forest. And the cake, who could forget that?! Thankfully Elizabeth Birdwell savored it all with her gorgeous photography!
But what I'll always remember most about this day was seeing Amanda in her element, the pure love she and Joe share for each other and their cute curly haired son (aka the dancing machine). What a reminder of how sometimes life doesn't go as planned but how wonderful the unplanned moments are - those are the moments that life is really all about.
Amanda + Joe, here's to rain, love, family and happily ever after and a huge thank you for letting us share in it all!
