2011 has been great! I have been very busy doing floral arrangements that range from the very elegant all white to the brightest red and purple combo I have ever worked with. The purple lisianthus and red rose bo-k was born when the bride asked for "happy flowers', she did not want anything that would just be a bride's bo-k she wanted something that was tasteful, elegant, and "happy" her only request was that red roses were in the bo-k so that they would match the vintage car they left the wedding in. This car was special because her groom picked her up for thier first date in that car. You can see a picture of the bo-k in the photo gallery under Jan-June 2011.
I also had the honor of working with one of my venders Carla McLemore (Photographer). She had a dream, a vintage wedding on the grounds of Madelyn's in the Grove, in Athens, AL. The colors Carla chose were perfect, she requested specific items and then left the finishing touched to Weddings By Jeannie. If you check out the links button you will see where her wedding has been published on Elizabeth Annes Designs blog. Carla and her mom planned the details and had help creating the burlap table toppers, and also had an Aunt to bring me a large garbage bag full of spanish moss directly from LA.
I also had so much fun working with peonies, I had not had the oppertunity to work with this wonderful flower before this wedding. I located and ordered them from a USA grower. The bride had fond memories of picking her grandmother's peonies and playing with them when she was young.
The one thing that has come to mind during these first six months of 2011 is that the history behind alot of my bride's choices are based on family ties and traditions. I have some additonal pics that I will add to the Jan-June 2011 photo gallery soon.
Have a great day and God bless. Jeannie

So far the year 2010 is great. I have been very busy, check out the new pictures under photo gallery, June 2010. I would like to thank the photographers that have offered their shots for my use. I will post links to each of them ASAP.
I am off to the florist to work on this week's weddings. Two outdoor weddings with the temps in the high 90s and north Alabama's high humidity this should be interesting.
Colorful is how I describe the first 6 months of 2010.
Have a great summer

Well in January I posted that bookings were off to a slow start...Let me rephrase that...since Jan. I have had a constant schedule of meeting and activities. 7 events to date with wedding planning in full swing. Currently have 19 weddings and events booked for 2010 with contracts pending on 7 more. I am anticipating alot of fun this year.
On Saturday April 10th I had a great event working with Jaimie and Keith on their wedding. The weather was perfect 76 degrees no humidity, for their outdoor wedding at the Botanical Gardens in Huntsville AL.
I posted a few shots under the locations tab in the photo gallery Jaimie selected assorted pink roses with fillers and it was perfect for the beautiful spring day.
To add to the perfect weather the white tulips at the gardens were in full bloom.
I will try to update calendar soon. Have a great spring.
