From Nancy Liu Chin... When Nicole first came to me, she wanted peonies for her fall wedding. I remember thinking that Coral peonies may not be in season so we worked on a bouquet that was still lush, elegant but very romantic.
All through the process, I remember bugging my growers to see if peonies would arrive in October and they would say the same story. "No peonies". So for the entire week prior, I had a plan for the bouquets that would include garden roses, ranunculus, large headed roses, dahlias, textural foliage, astilbe and other romantic and fluffy blooms. About a week before the wedding, I asked my grower to try for coral peonies but this time they said, there was a chance. After that I knew that the possibility of getting Nicole's dream flower might just happened.
Typically when this happens, I don't even tell our bride as things change day to day. So on the wedding day, our beautiful bride had no idea that coral peonies were in her bouquet. I think that made it extra special for us. To be able to surprise a bride on their day is the best thing!! Especially when the peonies looked so amazing.
