Today calls for a throw back….. It is Thursday after all! And this one is a good one. A realllllly good one. Celeste & Sidney, oh where oh where do we begin. Well, for starters, we begin with the fact that this is the most beautiful and wonderful family- inside and out. Just the most generous and fantastic people we’ve maybe ever had the pleasure of working with. Celeste and Sidney invited us along for their destination wedding at the Palms Hotel in Miami, Florida. To say that we were excited, might be an understatement. The Palms Hotel was stunning and perfectly appointed with everything a destination wedding requires. This hotel and venue doesn’t miss a beat, they are spot on with every single detail. Of course, our sister company, A Moment In Time Wedding & Event Production coordinated the big day and the days leading up, and it was a seamless and perfect day. Just perfection in every way.
We, of course, created the floral in the Miami branch of our floral wholesaler, all while Preston Bailey was also working in the same space. Yes, you read that correctly- PRESTON BAILEY. So, not only did we get to work with a beautiful couple, their fantastic family, at a stunningly perfect venue, while being guests in the hotel- we also got a chance to view one of the most successful wedding florists work, up close and personal. This, is what they call “serendipity” and it was all we could do to contain ourselves. If you can picture us doing a little dance, a “can-can” (to be exact), while fireworks are going off in the background and champagne bottles are popping- well, that’s a fraction of the excitement that was brewing under what we hope appeared to be a calm demeanor.
You’ll notice, we have posted quite a few photos of the couple rather than of our work. We can’t help it. Our floral was pretty, but this couple trumps anything we could have created with floral or otherwise. They are show stoppers! So gorgeous. Enjoy their beauty and the Miami scenery in all it’s glory……and a few photos of our work thrown in for good measure! Thank you to Maggie Stolzberg Photography for being so amazing to work with and for providing us the opportunity to download photos to our hearts content! You my dear are a true talent! I can see why folks fly you all over the world to capture their important moments. Such stunning work. Swooning still, 6 months later……. ahhhhhh…….
