Wedding: May 28, 2011

Rose Hill, near Rocky Mount, NC. Check out the links; this place is gorgeous!!

In a grove of ancient pecan trees - the ceremony site. It was sunny with light breezes when we were setting up. Shortly after we left the premises, the skies opened up and rain fell as if it were being poured from buckets. It was the kind of rainstorm that makes car drivers stop under overpasses - but we couldn't stop because we had to get back to Raleigh to deliver another wedding.

Blue and white hydrangea with delphinium. Navy linens to match the carpet - with burlap runners.

It might not look like it here, but this tree trunk was about 3 feet in diameter.

It is beautiful.... and certainly doesn't look as warm as I know it got! Summer is definitely here!!!

I hope the sudden rain stopped and the ceremony could still be outside, that aisle looks like heaven to walk down

I hope the heavy rain didn't damage the flowers!

Wow, what a neat place! What a wonderful job you guys did. Without people like you, celebrations of life & the last good by to those loved and revered would be drab.

Thank you for what you do :)

That is the perfect porch for a mint julep.
Lovely setting and I too hope the rain stopped. Outside weddings are such a gamble.

You have a very interesting job!

BEAUTIFUL Place, Judy....A Great Place to Have a Wedding---or, any kind of event, actually.
DRAT on that Rain! I hope it didn't ruin the set-up, completely! And there sure are dangers working as a Floral Designer---Storms that you must keep driving through because "The Wedding Must Go On...".

So does that mean all the outdoor flowers got drenched? That's unfortunate for the wedding couple. I love a giant tree.

I love looking at your photos and reading your blog. This place is so pretty makes me want to get married again. To the same groom, of course.
