Real Weddings: Nicole and Billy

Have you ever had this experience? You meet a client for the first time, totally hit it off, hug at the end of the meeting and wish you could be instant friends with them? That’s exactly how I felt when I met Nicole. Right off the bat, she let me know that her wedding was just about 6 weeks away and she had planned not to have flowers because she couldn’t come to terms with buying traditionally grown flowers that have been shipped from thousands of miles away. When our mutual friend Irene told her about LoCoFlo, she was so excited to find out that local flowers were an option in March.

Nicole was marrying a sweet, Irishman on St. Patrick’s day weekend. Her colors were green and white – with lots of texture and interest thrown in.

The bride was stunning!  (I’m a little teary just looking at the pictures!)


Her bouquet was filled with locally grown tulips, ranunculus, stock, early hellebores, paper whites, boxwood, mini pussy willow and succulents. It looked awesome and smelled glorious!


The boutonnieres were cool with little succulents, ranunculus buds, boxwood and mini-pussy willow.

The wedding took place in the beautiful Vollmer Center at Cylburn Arboretum. It was a beautiful spot for this late winter wedding.

Thanks to our growers-who tirelessly grown in the winter-despite the struggle with weather and heating greenhouse! Special thanks to Farmhouse Flowers, Lynn Vale Studios, Seaberry Farm and Plant Masters.

We’re so grateful to wonderful photographers like Heidi Roland Photography who make our work look great! Check her out on facebook too!! To see more photos from Nicole and Billy’s wedding, you can check out our flickr site.
