Were any of you inspired by the royal wedding? Well, recent bride Jodi sure was. When Jodi and I met last year (thanks to the fabulous Laura Patterson of The Ideal Day), she had a very clear vision of what she wanted for her floral decor. She even went as far as to create storyboards to illustrate everything from color palette to style and design. For those of you that have the motivation to do such a thing I say go for it! It's the best way for a designer to not only understand your vision, but it also serves as a source of insipration.
Jodi wanted a crisp white wedding with accents of chartreuse green. She loved clean lines and modern floral scapes. After the royal wedding, she was so impressed by the tree lined processional aisle that she called me up shortly after to see if we could do something similar. My suppliers managed to provide us with four beautiful 14' River Birch trees. They looked perfect within Cafe Brauer's Great Hall. What's even better, Jodi donated the trees to the zoo after her wedding. They will be planted around the lake for people to enjoy for years to come!
