Tabacchi - Ryan - December 15, 2007

Where to begin! December 15 was a very special day, as we were lucky enough to be involved with the wedding of Amelia Tabacchi & Todd Ryan. It was a real pleasure working with them and their families. They were married in Oxford, OH on the Miami University campus at Kumler Chapel and Marcum Conference Center.
Amelia has exquisite taste, and really has a flare for doing things in a fun way! Her details included rhinestone sprays and chandelier crystals attached to sparkle birch, giving it a really icy Winter Wonderland type of feel. Her candy table was amazing. We took care of the candy part of it, and she had relatives make their famous recipe cookies. The display was like Candy Land meets Snow village. A couple of the relatives made their famous marinara sauce in jars for the guests, and one of them made home made wine.
I met many of Amelia & Todd's friends and family, and what a special group of people. I really feel blessed to have been a part of such a special day. Thanks Amelia & Todd. Best wishes, and I'm sure we'll cross paths again! The good pictures were taken by the fabulous April Rentz of Bluebird Photography, The not so good ones were taken by moi, and that is why I'm not a photographer. :)

December 15 Wedddings - Round 1

I have a ton of great pictures to post from this past weekend, and I will be posting them as they become available. I just had to get one of the pictures up right away. This was a candy topiary that I did for the candy table/bar at Amelia Tabachhi and Todd Ryan's wedding. It was soooo cute, and really decorative. I'll post more pics real soon.

See the brooch above? I collect them (vintage rhinestone brooches), and I sell them in my shop. But, I don't sell very many of may be asking yourself, "Why?". It's because I have a really hard time parting with them. Can you relate? But, when I have a customer who really loves them as much as I do, I feel like my brooches are going to a good home. Believe me, it's still hard to part with them, but I feel I must share the beauty. And honestly, how many brooches does a girl need?
So, the brooch above went to one of my October brides, Mary Kramer, and it looked so stunning with her dress, I felt that it belonged with her.

Bissell - Stoffer Wedding, 11.20.07.

If Lovin this is Wrong........I don't want to be right.

These guys had some of the coolest ideas. First off, her bouquet had so many textures, I just loved doing it. It's composed of Parrot Tulips, Ranunculus, Roses, Ornithogalum, and Fern Curls. The maids carried 25 cream white Carnations, handtied with chocolate brown ribbon. And, if there were ever an argument for white carnations, it was those bouquets. If I can get some pictures, I will post them. The centerpieces were three different sized glass vases, each with submerged curly willow branches and a floating candle on top. The look was so different and gorgeous!!!!

Patti Jo & Eric - 10.20.07

Golden Delicious!

This was such a fun wedding! This couple was the winner of the Q-102 Win A Wedding give away, and it was a real pleasure to work with them. They were so fun and creative. Their colors were fantastic, and their choices in flowers were so much fun. Patti's bouquet included Gold Strike roses, Mango calla lilies, and yellow Cymbidium orchids. Her bridesmaids' bouquets included mini Sunflowers and eucalyptus. See above.

Au Naturale!

This was a bouquet that I did for the upcoming Cincinnati Wedding magazine Fall/Winter edition. The photoshoot took place at a beautiful site in Indian Hill (make sure and get the magazine when it comes out in December...I don't want to give any more away)! The theme was "naturals", involving natural tones and elements. So, I used Terracotta, Porcelina and white Majolika roses, as well as antique Hydrangea and Snow Berries. I used a vintage fur clip at the top of the ribbon as a little accent decor. Steven Easley from Easley Blessed Photograpy (, was nice enough to shoot a few pictures of it for me so that I could include it in my blog. As usual, I could not post just one picture...they're all so glorious!
