Over the years, I've been privy to many opportunities in the floral industry for a having a green thumb. Floriculture is one of those professions that has a plethora of possibilities except for some. It's not everyday that you get to flower those you love. That's why this wedding in particular is special because it was a gift from the One above. Meet Christian, my handsome nephew and his beautiful bride Maria. What a blessing it was that God brought this union together! In doing so, our family added another member. This summer I had the opportunity to flower their elopement and now I get to feature them on my platform! Creating their florals will be one of my most cherished memories and it brings me happy tears to share with you all, this very special ceremony. Here's to Maria and Christian, their sweet pup Winston, and to Dea Goci for capturing it all! What a joyous occasion it was to celebrate with them at Hartford City Hall!

specialty flowers and fillers that were utilized in these wedding arrangements were blue delphinium, craspedia, poppies, ranunculus, chamomile, peonies, garden roses, mustard greens, nigella, hypericum berries, veronica, seeded eucalyptus, and silver dollar eucalyptus

I hope you enjoyed this elopement at Hartford City Hall. Do you know Maria and Christian? Show the newlyweds some love by giving this post a 'Heart' in the section below!
