You're Engaged! Now What?

You're Engaged! Now What?

Congratulations to all the couples that have become newly engaged over the holidays! This is such a FUN and EXCITING season of life, but I know as a past bride myself, it can also be stressful! Unless you have an event planning background, designing and executing a Pinterest-worthy wedding can be overwhelming, so I wanted to share a few tips with you today on what to tackle first (after you're done celebrating of course!) The very best advice I can give is to first go get a manicure; lots of people are going to want to see your new bling!!

Paula + Edgar's Wedding at Half Moone in Norfolk, Virginia

Paula + Edgar's Wedding at Half Moone in Norfolk, Virginia

Paula and Edgar were married on a beautiful August day at the Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center in Norfolk, Virginia. They were the sweetest couple to work with, and their wedding day was absolutely spectacular! They dreamed of lush garden-inspired florals, to pair with their modern-vintage wedding inspiration, and Tara Liebeck Photography captured it all perfectly!! I was thrilled to be their wedding florist, and I got to play with lots of my favorite flowers: garden roses, peonies (shipped in from Alaska), ranunculus, dahlias, greenery and more! Paula dreamed of some beautiful floral elements, including a flower arbor, (she was the first CIE bride to use my new wooden arbor) a carnation escort card display, large flower-filled centerpieces, flower crowns for the whole bridal party, and more!! :) Enjoy these magical photos, and give some love to the vendor team who brought their wedding to life, below!
