It's a great day when you get the opportunity to work alongside Essence Magazine and Dianne Valentine, celebrity event designer and television host!! When Dianne's assistant called and asked if I wanted to design flowers for this wedding, first I had to compose myself and thenI said YES!!!! It was a labor of love and was really an awesome experience. Dianne is so FABULOUS in every since of the word and so very creative. One of her concepts featured centerpieces that would placed inside of the guest tables! The design was a replica of the graphic art designed for all the bridal stationary. There were over 6,000 blooms needed just for these table centerpieces alone. It was a cool and unique feature for the guests to eat on top of beautiful flowers. Whew!!! I'm getting tired just thinking of all the long hours it took to design and install!!! The wedding is featured in the February 2013 issue and is in stores now!
