Meeting Jess and Patrick was like a breath of fresh air. They came to our studio at the recommendation of their planner, Kelli from Swank Events . We met in May to talk flowers for their August wedding at Gore Place, in Waltham.
Jess, Patrick and Jess’s mom (who was in from Cali) came to the studio. We instantly loved their laid back vibe. Patrick was such a great sport too, making jokes and sweetly teasing the girls. (Or wait, were we teasing him?) That particular day our studio was s filled with flowers for a wedding, so we “oohed” and “ahhed” over the blooms. The couple wasn’t sure what they wanted for flowers, but they knew they wanted something simple, rustic and fun. They liked the look of Lindsey & Brian’s wedding, with a bit more color. Their ceremony was in a huge field, with cocktail hour in the garden, and reception at the carriage house. And here’s what we loved most – they worked with Kelli to plan alfresco dining outside the carriage house…with a food truck. Moira instantly knew we had to do market lights around the tables and a variety of beautiful garden flowers. Moira took Jess and her mom to the market in July. They had a blast!
Jess and Patrick are such genuine people. A few days before the wedding, Patrick called to ask for another pin-on. At the end of the call, he asked: “Will we get to see you at the wedding? We definitely want you guys to stay for cocktail hour!” On the big day, Moira and I were hesitant to grab a drink in the middle of the party. Until we saw Jess’s mom, who hugged us and said, “Get in there! Get a drink! Jess and Patrick want to see you!” That settled it. We grabbed a drink, not really expecting the couple to have a moment to say hi to us. As soon we walked in, they came over to us as relaxed as ever, gave us big hugs and said,”Thank you so much for coming. And thank you for everything. It is exactly what we wanted!!” Ahh…a breath of fresh air.
Oh, how we love fall weddings in New England. Especially when the couple is as awesome as Megan and Jeff.
We met Megan and Jeff last year in a coffee shop in Inman Square, and loved their laid back vibe. Megan is a food writer/blogger, so she brought us tons of photos of her favorite floral elements. We learned she adored flowers that appeared organic, textured and harvest-like for their October nuptials at Moraine Farm. They liked the idea of using bright oranges, deep reds & purples, chocolate browns, thistle, pomegranate, eggplants, cranberries, etc. We left the meeting feeling refreshed.
The big day came quickly and we were thrilled to be a part of it. Megan chose fall details to brighten up the tent and Moira’s flowers seemed to fit in perfectly. Megan looked amazing and Jeff looked so happy to see her for their first looks. What we loved the most? Even though the clouds tried threatening the day, the couple didn’t let that stop them from getting married outside among the beautiful bright autumn trees. Congrats Megan and Jeff!!

When we first met Martha to discuss wedding flowers, we instantly fell in love with her friendly, relaxed vibe and her excitement to marry Steven in the quaint town of Wethersfield, CT. Her idea was to keep the flowers earthy and natural, with hints of blue and green Celtic elements. We loved that Martha had already grown her own potted plant centerpieces in preparation for the big day. And when we started discussing sprays of rosemary & lavender for additional decor, she squealed with delight! But what we really adored about Martha was her sincere happiness and her natural approach to the wedding celebration. She was happy to leave the floral details up to Moira and Mother Nature. So, when we delivered the flowers on her beautiful September wedding day and she cried tears of joy, that just made our hearts melt even more! Congrats to the happy couple!
