"When you put it on, something happens."


Man, I'm fortunate to work with some really stylish and classy ladies. This last wedding was really fantastic, and the bride chose a red and black color palette that made my heart sing after a lot of white weddings this season. Like usual we used everything but the kitchen sink; red charm peonies, scabiosa, garden roses, astrantia, chocolate cosmos, carnations (!), blushing bride proteas, astilbe, cymbidum orchids, and probably some other things I'm forgetting.... goosenecks. allium.


The bride gave me a wide black sash that matched her dress to tie off the bouquet. Really dramatic and lovely.

'Twas at the very chic soho house. Everytime i go there (which admittedly is really never) I see someone famous. Recently the old DA from Law and Order SVU; Alex. Guess she's not in witness protection after all, cuz the lady was planning a party.


Anyway its a members only club. which makes me think of the Members Only jackets that everyone's dad had in the 80's. Jackets which unfortunately have reemerged as a vintage token of hipster-dom. If I had one I would wear it to Soho house, and when asked for my club card, would point at my breast pockets with the Members Only insignia and do a little wink or thumbs up or something.

Yowza - that red is a breath of fresh air. Beautiful and dramatic.

The first (and last) time I went to Soho House I disgraced myself by doing an interpretive dance of the Battle of Hastings. (The drinks are really strong there.)

The most amazing flowers I have ever seen! And I had the pleasure of holding the bouquet all night. . . and then a little in the morning when I was forced to put it down!

Sarah you are truly talented. Thank you so much for your time and creativity.
