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.
