Kara’s mom actually booked me before I met the bride. This couple decided on a smaller wedding at a bed and breakfast-style property in Altamont, NY. During the second meeting, we lined up the details, budget, and I finally met the bride. The last meeting was with Kara and Ed.
For the last meeting, Kara and Ed brought some items they had been busy making for the wedding. They had these really sweet little bird cages that were gilded in gold with parchment paper in them to display table numbers and Ed had been making origami cranes as place cards. They were having trouble figuring out how to display the cranes. Together we came up with a tree concept. I made a tree for Kara and Ed to hang the birds. After the guests found their origami place cards, the tree would be reused as a well-wish tree. That way the couple could take the tree home to keep forever.
Kara loved peony and roses. We added freesia, lavender, weigela and a few other elements. To show off their flowers, we used our sweet little wood compotes for the first time and finished off the look with a bit of gold bouillon .
Thank god for beautiful days.
