The Poseys Est. January 8th, 2011

Here are some photos of the latest! I can't wait to add images of the bride and bridesmaids -- more photos to come!

I loved this wedding! Seems like I say that about all of them, but Natalie, the bride, was truly amazing to work with! She knew exactly what she wanted, which really helped me when it came to designing her flowers. She knew she wanted rich, romantic and classic wedding decor, and combined with the added details including white fabric lined tents (provided by Big Island Tents), draping chandeliers, up lighting in whites and reds (provided by Hawaii Event Lighting), crystal details and an amazing cake (provided by Sweet Pi Bakery) I think her theme was established!

For this wedding I used all red toned roses as well as some peonies, anemones, gerbera daises and ranunculus for the bouquets.

Congratulations Natalie and Nick!

In addition to assisting Natalie with her florals, I also provided wedding coordination for the event. Included was assistance in putting together an itinerary for the days events, confirming vendor commitments, double checking all the details, decisions and services that Natalie was contracted for, as well as conducting the rehearsal and directing the wedding day events. 
Because I assisted Natalie with her wedding details, not just the florals, I feel like I was much more apart of the wedding and really got to know not just Natalie but her friends and family as well.  And although I am a vendor, I felt like I was completely apart of the wedding celebration! 

I am so happy for you both! 
Hip Hip, Hooray!!

Mad Hatter Tea Party

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what wouldn't be, it would. You see?"

Although I have mainly been doing Wedding Florals, I think I just love throwing a good party. Although Events have been an aspect of my company, Weddings have been at the forefront however; I am hoping to branch out more to be able to plan more parties. . . oh they are so much fun! 

 My dear friend had her 3-ohhhhhh birthday and she has always wanted a fantastical "Wonderland" party. Oh my, what fun it was to scheme and conspire all the details that went into this event. I had so much help from not only the birthday gal herself, but also ruthannephotography and Lesli. 

If you are curious, more photos are at. . .

My dear Lianne, I love you! Never forget your Alice curiosity and sweetness. . . you are a lovely friend with an amazing altruistic soul.

A very merry unbirthday to you!

Garrucho - Nguyen Est. July 23rd, 2010

Lisa + Mihn
There are no words to express how utterly fulfilling it is to have a Bride so ecstatic about what you have created for her. Lisa was so lovely and truly grateful for her wedding flowers, I felt such elation and success for the work and love I put into her wedding. 

Thank you Lisa!

The Browns - Est. June 26th, 2010

Jon + Mimi’s Wedding

This wedding has probably been the most important wedding I have done to date. Mimi has been one my closest friends for many years and I can’t believe I had the privilege to be a part of her special day.
 I remember talking about her wedding years ago—well before she met her groom Jon—and conspiring and scheming up ideas for her flowers and d├ęcor. It was with awe that I got to witness her relationship blossom with Jon, and I knew in my heart from the moment she mentioned his name that this was the guy for her. I knew that we had already pretty much planned her wedding, but I take little credit for the amazing event it turned out to be. Mimi has always been so talented with color and design and she was the orchestrator behind all the details. In addition, this wedding would not have been possible without my elves, Ruthie, Liannimal and Katsie…without you three I would have been sunk!

Mimi, I miss you my dear friend but am so proud and happy that you have found love!
Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out
Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides.
And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your root was so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.

Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.

Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.

Anderson - Boshammer Wedding

Ceremony and Reception location was at the Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort and Spa.The wedding colors were really fresh including pinks, greens and hints of cream. I used green Hydrangea, two different types of pink spray roses, fiddle-head fern to add interest and of course some lovely garden roses! I also used "Candy Bianca" a really nice colored pink rose that is soft and antique looking. I am hoping to get a photo of the bridesmaids bouquets to post soon, but I have added the brides bouquet shown above. We added the Phaelenopsis Orchids to an all rose bouquet, and since they are so delicate, they looked a bit like fluttering butterflies when the bride walked down the cute!
