My very good friends Charlene & Greg were married this past June 16th, and I had the pleasure of making her bridal bouquet and her (many) bridesmaids bouquets. I had been given a color palette to work with and being that she is Trinidadian she wanted COLOR in the flowers, except for hers!!! Those were the only restrictions, and I only wish I could have taken her to the flower market on 28th street in Manhattan and let her hand pick the flowers she wanted. Charlene trusted me, as she should ; ), and let me get creative and have fun in the design. The bouquets turned out beautifully and I was really excited because I was able to choose the flowers from local growers, her mother-in-law to be’s backyard, as well as Greg’s families garden center.
Much love to Greg and Charlene!
