the end of a season.

For me at least. Wedding season is a crazy thing, and this is my first year experiencing it in all its madness.
I survived.
So- tomorrow I leave for a month long break.
I will be in New Zealand and Australia...missing my favorite part of Autumn here, but enjoying spring there. I hear there are some crazy flowers there, and I cant wait to have my way with them. And if you must know, I will be attending a few of the rugby world cup games while I am there. A lady can like a variety of things, can't she?

I will still be in contact, so feel free to e-mail and I will respond when the time zone permits.
I still have plenty to share from the summer so I will keep posting while I am gone.

And- to my readers way over there on the other side of the world...have any suggestions of things for me to do and see while I'm there? I'd love to hear them!

Tara and Christian's wedding was photographed by Jessica Peterson.
You can also see their wedding here, here, and here.

grace's flowers

Some snaps of the flowers from a wedding a few weekends back, t'was pretty.

Next week I am leaving to New Zealand to go see some of the rugby world cup games.
Most of our time will be spent in Auckland, with a bit of time in Wellington, and then we will probably jump over to Australia for a week or so too.
We are in need of a place to stay in Auckland...any ideas? We procrastinated booking a place and now it seems that our options are fairly slim.

ilsa's flowers

Ilsa was such a fun bride to work with, the kind of bride I hate to see get married because it means my time planning with them is over. But not really, because I am glad she got married obviously. Ilsa wanted flowers that felt like they may be at a swedish smorgasbord, that were blue and yellow and rich in color. She bought a big box of antlers for me to incorporate into everything! I love it when brides come with their own ideas, and then trust me to make them happen. The wedding was up at deer valley and it was gorgeous, the weather cooperated just in time.

grace's bouquet

At grace's wedding she introduced me to her family and friends as "her florist". She would say "so-and-so this is Sarah, my florist", to everyone that arrived while I was setting up.

I loved it.

Her in-laws are from South Africa and were speaking in french. I loved hearing them speak while I was working. It made me feel like an in-house florist. I thought about how amazing it would be to live in an old castle in the countryside and be someone's full time florist. They would of course introduce me as so to all of their guests. I'd keep a cutting garden next to their field of sheep, and i'd have a shed full of giant urns and antique silver pieces.

When I take my inspiration from nature, my flowers always turn out the prettiest. I wish I was out enjoying these things and taking inspiration from them more. These are from a recent 24 hour camping trip between weddings.
