Two of the nicest people got married yesterday,and they were so cute. Both are from Ireland, and I could have listened to them talk for hours and never gotten tired of hearing it.They are in America for graduate school; one at Duke and one at Carolina.
The wedding was small, and the guest list included lots of people from Ireland, who made the trip over here strictly for the wedding. I wish I could have stayed at the reception and heard them all talk!
The bride requested daisies in the attendant's bouquets, so I used them in the centerpieces as well, along with hydrangea, calla lilies, roses, freesia and dendrobium orchids.
Someone asked me recently if I had a lot of "bridezilla" stories to tell. Every florist has a few, but in my 25 years in the business, I can count horror stories on fewer than the fingers of one hand. I have been extremely lucky. Most of my brides have been delightful to work with, and when it comes time for me to retire, that is the aspect I will miss the most, after the flowers.
