"Moriah was a special Bride - her joyful and easy going personality made each and every bit of planning easy as can be! Living away in another state for work while planning a wedding is a big feat, but Moriah did it perfectly. Her days back home were packed full of wedding appointments and I often caught her before or after dress fittings, bridal showers, or a nap. She was a trooper! With a lovely and kind disposition Moriah didn't come in with specific requests, but instead big picture ideas. She wanted her flowers to feel natural and soft with a bubbly and whimsical pop. She wanted there to be thought behind why the grandmother's corsage should have lavender freesia rather than spray roses and white lace on her bouquet vs burlap and lace on the bridesmaids' bouquets. We placed special attention on how to make her flowers be a reflection of the life her younger brother lived and how to include his legacy into these life long memories. The yellow, his favorite color, were a bright reminder of his spirit; a small remembrance charm with his photo dangled on the front of her bouquet, and an all yellow memorial arrangement stood strong and bright at the front of the church." - Maggie Milby IMF (Thistles Wedding Coordinator
