Real Weddings: Kim and Eoghan

greene0561 I met Kim and Eoghan on a cold day back in February. It was a few days after the blizzard and there was so much snow I had to walk and meet them at a cafe near my house because I couldn’t get the car out. They had come from Toronto, one of my favorite childhood cities. We talked about the winter Olympics and wedding flowers. It was a great tonic for that winter weather to talk about an August wedding with lush bouquets made of flowers in summer white and bright vibrant greens. Eoghan is from Ireland so they wanted to incorporate lots of green-including potted Irish moss!

Kim’s wedding bouquet was simple, elegant and just beautiful! It was made with white lisianthus and scented geranium.

Kim and Eoghan, like many of our couples, wanted to do more than just buy flowers that would be used for one night and thrown away. They decided that they would donate the flowers to cancer patients at the University of Maryland hospital. It was a great option that went off without a hitch. I picked up the flowers at the end of the night, (bouquets and centerpieces) and took them around the corner to the hospital. The Director of Hospitality Services was there to meet me-and she distributed the flowers and potted plants to the patients. It was such a generous, loving gift to share the joy and beauty of their day with folks that are sick and suffering. It’s hard not to be inspired when working with such great couples.

Congratulations to Kim and Eoghan! Thank you so much for letting Local Color Flowers be a small part of your special day. I’m certain that your love for each other and generosity towards others will inspire LoCoFlo couples for years to come!
