Their Venue Cancelled On Them!

Jillian Christophel (Friend) Leonard, MI
After meeting in medical school, spending residency in different states (Michigan and Oregon), and working tirelessly as physicians through the midst of a global pandemic Dr. Breanna and Dr. Eric deserved the perfect wedding! Things seemed to be headed in the right direction with restaurants reopening and venue capacities being lifted. When their original venue unexpectedly cancelled on them less than 3 weeks before the wedding Breanna managed to find a new venue and change all their plans within 48 hours. After working as a Physician frontline worker through a pandemic I guess nothing phases her! She handled everything calmly and gracefully - like the surgeries she performs at work. And in the ... end on a perfect warm Fall day, the sun was shining, and the leaves were at peak Fall colors and Breanna and Eric had not the wedding they expected - but a wedding that was beyond anything they could have imagined. Perfect in every way. It was an honor to be both Breanna's Bridesmaid and her Florist for the wedding. Putting together her vision was such fun and Fifty Flowers made it so incredibly easy. She knew what color scheme she wanted and she knew she wanted the deep burgundy dahlia with a lighter softer rose. The combo was unexpected and beautiful. All the flowers itself were breathtakingly beautiful and came in right when expected. Breanna had the idea to have the Bridesmaid's carry lanterns instead of bouquets and we adorned them with Amaranthus and Seeded Eucalyptus - this was such a hit! The centerpieces were simple bud vases with twine touches and a fall medley of grasses that accented the tables perfectly. There ended up being flowers everywhere you looked at the Reception. It was just such a blast arranging and creating these for Breanna and Eric and can't wait to use Fifty Flowers for my own wedding arrangements this Summer! Show more

Instead of a traditional bouquet the Bridesmaid's had Lanterns with some flowers hanging from them and the Amaranthus tied this together so beautifully!! We also used these to adorn the Arbor!
