Jodi & Matt: Part 1 of 2 – The Ceremony
It’s not often that we get to create flowers for such an important person in Daevids life. Jodi, the owner and catering extraordinaire at Sweetwater Cuisine, is not just a colleague of Daevids, but a very special friend as well. They have worked together, traveled together, and been close for many years. Her trust in Daevid allowed her to say, “surprise me!” with fall themed designs that wowed everyone in attendance.
Her marriage to fiance Matt was a two day event, with the Ceremony on Saturday, and the Reception on Sunday. This is the first time that two sets of bridal bouquets and wedding party flowers were made for a wedding, to give both days a unique twist on the gorgeous fall colors and theme. Literally thousands of the highest quality flowers were ordered, including over a thousand of the sexy Black Baccara Rose. Fabulous photography was provided by Sam Hughes and David Schwartz.
The Ceremony on Saturday took place at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens
Flowers featured in these designs include luscious dark purple stock, Sorbonne lilies, Alstromeria, whimsical yellow Billy Balls (Craspedia), Dark Melba Roses, Fern Curls, fluffy multi-toned Hydrangea, green draping Amaranthus, Italian Ruscus with berries, and assorted premium greenery.
Custom Pew Markers – chosen, ordered, and held for six months for this special event
