Rustic New England Wedding At Willowdale Estate

It always amazes me when the little things come together in mysterious ways — This week EH Floral was featured in Style Me Pretty showcasing a wedding that took place last June at the Willowdale Estates. This weekend, the EH Floral team was gearing up for another beautiful wedding at the same venue!

Willowdale is a graceful estate property with an old world elegance that evokes a  heartwarming ambience. Portia and Matt were clients that were introduced to me through the Boston Bridal Lounge and I loved working with them. This was a very sweet wedding in some many ways — It was important to the bride that the flowers we used had some special meaning. So Portia’s bridesmaid’s bouquets consisted of the flowers they each carried at their own weddings, while Portias brial bouquet included some of the same flowers that had been in her mother’s and grandmother’s bouquets.

To reflect the setting, but not compete with it, we had potted herbs, topiaries and garden style floral centerpieces in rustic wood boxes and caged clay pots. They were just perfect for the amazing setting.

So  thanks again Style Me Pretty, for sharing this very special wedding!

Spring Flowers Are In the Air!

It’s been a busy winter for me and we are quickly approaching what will be another busy summer full of breath-taking wedding flowers!  I can’t wait for the events that are being planned, and that excitement is hard for me to contain.  I spent last Wednesday in Boston meeting with 2014 wedding clients and vendors. While there, I took a trip to the Boston Flower Market. The Boston Flower Market feels a little like my second home —— I have been going  there since I was 19 years old while I was a junior in college working for the flower shop at UNH. The spring months are my favorite (and yes, I say that for all the seasons ☺). I think it’s being surrounded by springs sweet fresh scent that comes from the daffodils, freesia, lily-of-the-valley, foxtail, sweet peas, peonies, and bleeding heart (do you even know how sweet they smell?). I just cannot get enough, so I wrote a blog post to share with you all!

I’m lucky enough to live one town over from the incredible Meg Hamilton of Rodeo & Co Photography. After market, I quickly texted her “…I just bought some really pretty flowers, can we get together and take pictures of them before I leave for the west coast on Sunday?” to which she replied “Yes!” We met up this past Friday and…TA DA… This is the result of our collaborations!

Additionally, I am experimenting with a few of the containers that will be featured in some of this summer’s events; stove pipe tins, rustic clay pots, and luxe gold tinted pedestal vases and compotes.  The flowers that I could not leave the market without included: mini daffodils (jonquils, narcissus, or “tete-a-tete”), ranunculus, viburnum, parrot tulips, spirea, pussy willow, white lilac, foxtail, hellebore, and pieris japonica (the last two of which grow in my mother’s yard in Washington state and I cannot wait to see it in full bloom in just a few days!)

I hope these images inspire you to enjoy life and have a Happy Spring!

Cheers!  Emily
