I love collaborating with other artists to help make a vision come to life. Several vendors assisted me in taking "Springtime's Garden" from vision to reality at Flinn Block Hall in Albany, Oregon and I am so excited to show you the fruits of our planning.
I chose "Springtime's Garden" as the theme because we had approached Spring and it holds a dear place in my heart. The flowers are blooming, animals are being born, and it's a time in which everyone is happy the sun is shining again. I wanted something that is light, crisp, airy, and trendy; something any bride would love to have for her wedding. I've developed a vision based on giving a bride something unique and modern with colors that remind me of Spring.

Those pops of colors with the groom and groomsman's bow ties made me swoon! Loved the colors.
The details were lovely. Planting a potted plant instead of a traditional unity candle ceremony was so unique and went perfectly with our theme.
