Summer in the Pacific Northwest is often on the cooler side and when we do get really nice weather we lap it up like a thirsty dog! However, the summer of 2015 was something to behold - warmer than normal temperatures and, if I recall, only one day of rain the entire summer. While it was enjoyable it did make some challenges for wedding florists. In some cases product was hard to locate because warm weather made the flowers bloom earlier than normal or it was too hot for some flowers and the season was cut short. I know myself there were events where I worried the flowers would wilt before the wedding even began, but I was lucky enough to not have this happen! Megan and Garrett's wedding was held at the Woodinville Lavender Farm on a warm day in July. Lavender held special meaning for Megan and she wanted to incorporate it in her arrangements as much as possible. Unfortunately, most of the lavender was already drying up and I was having a difficult time locating any. Luckily at the last minute I was able raid my neighbor's lavender bush since it still had just enough good blooms available.
Megan also loved maidenhair fern which we incorporated into her bouquet and all of the arrangements wherever we could. We chose to keep the table arrangements simple using a variety of bud vases filled with small clusters of flowers or single blooms. Megan rented vintage china and the plates were placed on the table when the guests arrived so there was not a lot of need for a ton of floral.
All of the photography was provided by the very talented Ali Horman of Ali Horman Photography. I love how she captured all of the details of Megan and Garrett's special day. Thank you Ali!
