Jessica is an author of several wedding and backyard entertaining books. She was raised on a small farm in Connecticut. She grows many flowers each season for her weddings. Her work has been featured in numerous magazines and blogs.
By now you know... one thing that absolutely brings a smile to my heart is the way a bride looks at her flowers for the first time and just glows! (may times it will bring a tear to her eyes) Which means we simply did our job and hopefully did it better than she would of ever imagined. It's like reality hits her and the day has actually come to life. And of course, I'm thrilled to say that Alissa Dinneen was there to capture the look on the lovely bride's face!
This pretty spring wedding was held at Beth Israel in West Hartford, Connecticut and a lovely reception following at Tumblebrook Country Club.
The bride carried a stunning hand-tied bouquet of pink peonies, ivory garden roses, pink ranunculus and pink cymbidium orchids, wrapped partially with ivory raw silk ribbon and pearl pins. Boutonnieres coordinated with this beautiful bouquet. We grow many different varieties of peonies in our gardens. During the spring you'll also find tulips in our gardens along with blueberries and raspberries (that we pick unripe to use in our weddings).
Even a little rain couldn't put a damper on this happy couple's wedding day. Smiles all around!
