wedding floral design course

Week 1 at Nicole's Classes. I am now taking Floral Arranging Weddings.
I took floral arranging 101 in 2013!
I already have a ton of ideas and pins going but, here is one idea for my homework.
This board is for a wedding in Charleston, SC theme is romance, glamour, deco and autumn.
I also needed to make a master shopping list and recipes for the designs as well as write up a contact.

road trip to virginia

 We road tripped to Virginia last Wednesday through Sunday and visited Charlottesville and Williamsburg. The weather was gorgeous! There was lots of history, exploration, beautiful gardens and dining out. We even ran into two families from home we knew!  Of course there is a  ton missing from these photos like the downtown of Charlottesville, the Maplewood cemetery that was across the street from where we were staying!, the winery, Williamsburg and all the craftspeople in Historic Williamsburg.
I think I was so excited to be outdoors so much in Spring that my brain focused mostly on the flowers.
