Where do I begin on this one.
As Kelli’s best friend, Lisa has been in our lives for 25 years. She’s our go-to girl when we need an extra hand organizing at Valentine’s and Mother’s Day, answering phones and keeping deliveries in check. She’s also the traditional type: our “pearls in stephanotis” girl, the one who likes a crisp white and navy striped ribbon and a neat, round handtied bouquet.
All of our designer friends will understand the insanity of attending a wedding you designed (and with Kelli on maid of honor duties no less). Long story short, we survived (and slept for a week after).
Hilde and I played a fun game of “will we make it to the reception,” (we didn’t, we watched the wedding from the bridal suite).
We designed the tall trees in gold urns at the venue, and used hundreds upon hundreds of votives. The result was a classic, romantic display of sweet pinks, creams, and peonies (Lisa’s favorite).
Long story short, we pulled it off.
