I first ‘met’ the lovely Jessie over email months before her and Johnnie’s Sydney wedding. They were planning everything online from LA and flying blind as it were, not being able to meet their wedding vendors in person until days before their wedding. They were the loveliest people and I’m so glad they put their trust in me. Johnnie’s Aussie, Jessie’s American, and they planned an Aussie celebration with the Sydney Opera House as backdrop for their nearest and dearest who weren’t able to make their US adventure. Their big day dawned with one of the worst storms I can remember. Battling torrential rain and wind loading beautiful blooms and a cake into the car was a challenge (I slammed my finger in the door somehow, ouch! But managed to arrange those lovely chair garlands with a bandaged hand). Even though the outdoor ceremony plan had to be abandoned (and the Opera House barely visible through the downpour), you couldn’t wipe the smiles from Jessie and Johnnie’s faces. Their love and happiness shone through.
What Jessie said: “Thank you so, so much for bringing our wedding vision to life! The whole event was a complete success, and so much of that was because of you. Johnnie and I could not have imagined a more beautiful execution of our wedding dreams. Thank you. All of our guests raved about the flower arrangements and cake. (Oh, the cake! Yum!). And the colors of the blooms you selected were absolute perfection. My bouquet and flower crown were exactly what I wanted. I felt like a beautiful woodland fairy queen, and I loved it! …
Thank you so much for keeping up with our endless overseas emails and last-minute changes and additions, not to mention the crazy weather while you were loading in. What a pro!
You really did and outstanding job.”
