Winter Soiree

Image
Jaime contacted me about her intimate elopement-style celebration just a few weeks before her winter soiree.  As a long-time professional acquaintance and friend, I welcomed the opportunity to bring her vision to life.  Jaime and Greg celebrated with their closest friends and family at the historic Back Inn Time Bed & Breakfast.  The ambiance and decor in the coach barn provided the perfect environment for Jaime's vintage vibe.  We used a palette a white, ivory, and green and accent tables with lush runners of eucalyptus and ruscus.  Fragrant roses and freesia married with blousy ranunculus blossoms and gold gilded hypericum berries graced the bouquets and impromptu swag on the rustic shiplap wall.  The windchills dipped close to -40 degrees all day, so I designed a mini bouquet with a white pine cuff for outdoor pictures.  How about these moments captured by Eva Watson?  I don't know about you, but I think Jaime & Greg's twins really stole the show!

Creativity: at the heart of who I am.

Image
Creativity is essential to my identity as a human being.  "Creative" is the first word I use to describe myself, no matter what life role I'm standing in.  That's the thing, right?  Not one of us are defined by just one role.  We're complex "relationshipees" (that's a word my students and I came up when we couldn't find a word to best describe this human phenomenon).

I'm a mother, daughter, partner, sister, niece, granddaughter, aunt, friend, neighbor, mentor, leader, coach, facilitator, teacher, business owner, manager, designer, writer, artist, student, researcher, cook, gardener, farmer, singer, musician, historian, graphic artist...the list goes on.  These are roles I play on any given day.  Remember the wisdom of Shakespeare in As You Like It?

"All the world’s a stage,And all the men and women merely players;They have their exits and their entrances;And one man in his time plays many parts..."

At the heart of the many roles we …

Tonight I opened my email to find this message:

Thank you to all of our 2017 clients for your rave reviews!  Your feedback is a humble reminder that we're fulfilling our mission to listen, build relationships, and bring your visions to life!



My husband and I were in awe of how stunning our wedding flowers were! These flowers had that magic factor, where it totally enhances the aesthetic while also contributing to the overall vibe. Sarah Jo was amazing every step of the way. She really listened to what our vision was. Not to mention, she was always so engaged in our correspondence, prompt, courteous, and organized. -Elaine




Working with Sarah Jo was an absolute pleasure, and, most importantly, we were blown away by the florals at our wedding and welcome BBQ the night before. First, the wedding florals. SJ not only brought our vision to life, she helped us to create that vision over the course of about a year working together.  In terms of day-of execution, SJ enhanced this vision and…

Lush Elegance Wedding

Image
Katherine & Vin selected The Barn at Smuggler's Notch for their late summer wedding soiree.  The evening wedding, celebration, and subsequent disco-inspired party featured attention to detail in the finest sense.  We brought their "lush elegance" vision to life with copious dahlias, garden roses, ranunculus, scabiosa, orchids, and lots of foliage including jasmine vine, ruscus, and varieties of eucalyptus.  The palette married neutral tones with saturated wines, corals, and pinks. Words are not adequate to express the look...best to just drink in these stunning images from JAG Studios.

Wild Elegance Vermont Wedding

Image
Shannon and Aaron were married on the rolling hillside property at Sleepy Hollow Inn.  The Ski and Bike Center was a perfect Vermont location for these outdoor enthusiasts.  A pristine, warm fall day was a welcomed backdrop for their celebration.  The intimate gathering of friends and family was laid back with a wild elegance flair - an echo of the couples' personalities.  We loved bringing their vision together with lots of locally sourced flowers and botanicals, including dahlias, celosia, amaranthus, ferns, and ornamental grasses.  Check out these photos by Jeff Woodward Photography.  The bouquet shot against Shannon's bohemian Rue De Seine gown just might be my favorite of the season!
