"I've seen Luke come in over the years picking out Olivia's favorite flowers and always handwriting a card slipped inside of an envelope. As their love grew it was so fun to see him come in for a variety of occasions. Sometimes it would be a sweet "just because" wrap picked up after work and other times a large dozen rose arrangement for Valentine's Day, he never forgot her and it has been always clear to see how much he loved her. Getting to be apart of their wedding flowers was such an honor. One of the best things about working with Olivia and Luke was that they both made time for planning and embarking on this journey together - they both spoke up, and both put their trust in me to bring their ideas on paper to life. Wedding day came and Luke, of course, arranged to pick up a special arrangement just for her. The special moments continued as their day with was filled with the perfect selections. Every detail was done in a sophisticated fashion.; custom signage with soft floral detailing, dainty gold table numbers, an after party for guests prearranged by the Bride and Groom, and tastefully mixed floral arrangements. For their flowers we created a variety of centerpieces some in frosted gold vases, other single stem blooms situated with greenery in the center of long tables, fresh mixed greenery garlands, and more. We created two footed arrangements in our extra large gold footed vases that stood on the stage and then decorated the King's Table. From their photos it is so easy to see how much joy and love this couple is blessed to be surrounded by their family and friends." - Maggie Milby IMF (Thistles Wedding Coordinator)
