Those of you who have worked with Pollen may recognize this beautiful bride! We were so excited for one of our very own designer’s wedding! Michelle planned a gorgeous affair, with a classic, garden party feel. I can’t help but smile every time I look at these photos.  Would you believe she came in to work and made all of the centerpieces?
