Pretty sweet! I’m excited to be participating in Weddings on the Waterfront in July.  Not sure how it all came about, but I stumbled into an pretty amazing creative group of people! I have to say that the creative energy in this group of vendors is pretty impressive!  I’m working with Rebecca at Pravda Events www.pravdaevents.com   and I love her style, creative approach and her vision!  Carna Lapping, of Very Important Events was my initial contact, http://www.veryimportanteventsblog.com/  and it all just came about in a conversation regarding another mutual bride we are working with, and I should certainly thank Courtney for putting us in touch with each other.

I’ve been working on my floral vision for the event, I’ve started a board for the event at Pinterest.  Here is the link to the creative start to the project  http://pinterest.com/brittanyflowers/waterfront-event-ideas-for-nautical-and-modern/  I know it seems a little vague, but you know it’s a process that happens in my brain first..what else can I say 🙂 I’m a typical designer!

The vision starts with the most beautiful venue   http://www.bellharbor.com/ on the waterfront in Seattle. The view doesn’t get any better than this spot! The photo gallery has some pretty amazing pictures, which you can check out here: http://www.bellharbor.com/gallery.php

Bell Harbor features 100,000 square feet of meeting and conference center space and they can accommodate up to 200 trade show booths. With their state-of-the-art technology, onsite planning team, award-winning cuisine,  Bell Harbor is an ideal space for 5 to 5,000 guests. In addition, Bell Harbor manages catering and events for World Trade Center Seattle and the Maritime Event Center.

The other thing I was very excited to learn it that my daughter photographer Alante Photography http://www.alantephotographyblog.com/ is one of the photography vendors for this WOW event. I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting the creative team at Alante yet, but I’m sure we will have a great time at the wedding at the Seattle Tennis Club!

Such a touching video  that shares the history of flower growing.  It touches my soul and make me realize just how important the growing aspect is to our industry!  Thank goodness for farming, I think this is a standard that our industry needs to strive towards & try to maintain!

Thank goodness for flower farmers who grow and have an incredible respect for what we do!

This is what makes our industry truly thrive!  I was truly impressed recently when I had a conversation with this grower who made it very clear  how he wanted his flowers treated with respect!

As a designer, I am alway considerate of how I treat flowers, my goal is to make them look beautiful for my client.  The grower is the first step to helping me accomplish my goal!  I feel so happy to have found some one who cares as much as I do!
