They Like Me, They Really Like Me

They like me, they really like me." That is what Sally Field said as she accepted the oscar in 1985 for her performance in Places in the Heart.

Those are the words I heard in my head the other day. For two consecutive weeks photos from two weddings that I had the opportunity to create the floral pieces for were featured on the Ubloom site.

Ubloom is a site were anyone involved in the flower industry can belong. There are blogs, articles, galleries where members can show their work, flower facts, instructional videos and forums where you can ask questions and get answers from a wide variety of wonderfully talented florist.

Fridays on the Ubloom blog are sometimes photo Fridays. Early in the summer I set a goal that I wanted some of my work to be chosen for photo Friday and last week on Friday I opened up the blog to guessed it, there were the great photos (thank you Justin ) from Bo and Tims wedding in August. I really enjoyed this wedding. This wedding was challenging, had great colors that I had not worked with and the bride gave me the liberty to be creative. Lots of fun.

Then this week on Ublooms Facebook page they featured another of our weddings from the photo galleries section of Ubloom. Emily and Trent who were married last May. I had the privilege to do Emily's sisters wedding this summer. I saw the pro shots the other day and can't wait to share them. Really beautiful. But any way I am off track. Trent and Emily had a beautiful purple and green wedding. Again thank you to Justin of Justin Salem Meyer Photography for the pictures of both of these weddings.

So thank you Ubloom. You like me, you really like me.

Ashley and Nate

I also coordinated this wedding that was held at Willow Creek Babtist Church and one of the jobs of the coordinator is to lay the aisle carpet. The mother of the bride had monogramed this aisle carpet (it was spectacular DeAnn) and the monogram had to be in just the right spot so that the bride and groom were not standing on it but it was just behind them when they reached the bottom of the aisle. This is a picture the photographer took of my sister and I and the mother of the bride pinning it down. Just one of those things that goes on behind the scenes of a wedding.

White roses on black aluminum wire were submerged in 39 in. tall cylinder vases for the platform area. These vases are rental items of As You Wish Floral and have been a very popular item this summer. Its easy to see why. They are contemporary, have a clean look and striking. We floated a white rose on the top with two floating candles. You can never go wrong with candlelight for a wedding.

The photographer for Nate and Ashleys wedding was Catchlight Imaging and they supplied us with all of these great photos. At the wedding they had cards for everyone with one of Nate and Ashleys engagment photos on it. It gave their information along with an approximate date that you could view the images from Nate and Ashleys wedding and instructions on how to get to the proofs from their website. I loved this idea and commend Catchlight Imaging for doing this. All of the photos were fabulous. I love their work and would highly reccomend them. Love the photos. Beautiful work Paul and Nicolle. Congratulations Nate and Ashley.
