We were excited to participate on once again in Indie Wed, held on Saturday at the Ravenswood Event Center! Indie Wed is “THE alternative to traditional wedding expos.” Traditional wedding expos are not our thing, so we’re happy to have this opportunity to meet potential clients who also have a more independent spirit.

I featured fuchsia phalaenopsis orchids in the centerpiece, bridal bouquet, and boutonniere. These […]

About a week before Indie Wed, I thought about cutting out this vignette, because I really hadn’t figured out yet what I was going to do for it.
