Wedding Matchmaker

Though I've never introduced a couple that ended up getting married, I did introduce my friend Suzy to her Florist & am so excited!
Flowers at Orange Beautiful's Open HouseSuzy is planning a Chicago wedding from out of state, and since I love weddings I tend to nominate myself as the unofficial wedding planner for my friends. Which basically means that I send them ideas until they tell me to stop. Which nobody does, so they either like it or have learned to ignore me!

So a while I came across the gorgeous arrangements April Joy Events created for Orange Beautiful's open house. So pretty! So unusual! Plus at the time Suz was thinking yellow flowers... when she said that it just made me think of sunflowers, so was on the hunt for something a bit more chic.

Suzy rightly also loved April Joy, especially when they met... and when she spotted that she had been featured on Daily Candy she knew she'd better book April before she wasn't available!

Rather than yellow, a fateful trip to Paper Source when Suzy was in town led to the current color scheme of pale blue with a tangerine orange... I am so excited to see how it all turns out! more pictures to come after the wedding in August!
