This summer wedding was what my floral (and client!) dreams are made of. Mary Claire was originally planning to marry Philip in May 2020, but Covid had other plans. They postponed to August, and it couldn’t have been any more perfect! Despite switching from a spring wedding to a summer wedding, we were able to keep the same color palette and garden-style aesthetic. It was dreamy! If Lamar and I ever decide to renew our vows, Mary Claire’s bouquet would be the one I would want to hold. It was perfectly whimsical, light, and summery.

Aside from the flowers, their entire planning experience was perfect. Mary Claire remained calm, kind, and trusting despite the stress of a postponed wedding. So much joy!


For Mary Claire and Philip, I sourced most of the flowers through one of my favorite local farms, Janbil Farms. Janet provided the most beautiful abelia, zinnia, dahlias, tuberose, yarrow, cosmos, sedum, and so many beautiful viney greens. I also ordered a variety of English garden roses from Grace Rose Farm including Distant Drums and Koko Loko. Other flowers, sourced from Cutflower Wholesale, included were stock, garden roses, carnation, hellebore, astrantia, ranunculus, campanula bells, delphinium, lisianthus, and tweedia.
