Real Weddings: Amanda and Kevan

Amanda and Kevan were married on a perfect summer evening at Black Ankle Vineyard.

I loved meeting Amanda. When we met, she really only had two request for her flowers-she didn’t want anything formal-and nothing that looked like “prom”! She wanted everything to be very natural, with lots of greens and herbs.  She wanted the flowers to compliment the beautiful scenery at Black Ankle._0116_EssnerMellendickWed27ug10

Amanda’s bouquet was naturally shaped  filled with mint, eucalyptus, basil, asclepias, lisianthus, crested celosia and zinnias.
