When I started designing $10 bouquets for sale at NOCA, the goal was two-fold: to offer inexpensive, gorgeous flowers that would brighten people’s days, and to get the word out about Thimble Summer Flowers. So imagine my delight when I got this e-mail:
“I live near the coffee shop NOCA, and have really loved your flower arrangements there. My partner and I are getting married locally at the end of September — any chance you do flowers for weddings?”
The couple had chosen the Wright-Locke Farm for their wedding site, a beautiful, rustic, working farm in Winchester, MA.
We agreed that the flowers should reflect the homey, welcoming spirit of the venue.
They requested fragrant arrangements; rosemary, bay leaves, lavender and eucalyptus would both provide heavenly scents and gorgeous greens and accents.
When we were setting up, we were welcomed by dozens of bees, who came to check out the offerings. (Every time I see a bee I smile; I did plenty of smiling that day!)
The farm has a re-purposed horse corral, the perfect place to put up a tent and tables, and dine al fresco.
The 1827 Barn is outfitted with festive lights, and is ideal for dancing, chatting, and soaking up the atmosphere.
Just as we left, we caught a glimpse of the bride in a moment of reflection before the festivities began – it was magical.
A wish for the Festive Fall Farm Wedding Couple: may your married life be as beautiful, peaceful and joyous as your wedding day was!
