Where do I begin?!?! Niki and I have been friends since 4th grade! I’m not going to do the math, but it’s been at least 2 decades and counting! I’ve also had Niki by my side with Zuzu’s and she’s been the best sidekick anyone can ask for! So when she and Rick got engaged, well we sure did have fun planning! This wedding was an extra special one as I pulled double duty as florist and bridesmaid!
First, we had to get professional and show Rick the ZP skills, so we had our meeting and created the various concepts. Nicole used to be one of our event assistants and from all her setups of previous ZP weddings, she thought she wanted one concept, but we never even looked towards that direction. Luckily for her, we used her favorite ZP lanterns at her wedding shower.
Nicole and Rick have such a wonderful sense of humor and that is what made this amazing wedding so special. Rick coaches people on writing their resume, so you know he’s amazing with words. Their program was hysterical!!
The beautiful escort card board was created by Greenstar Paperie and draped in sequins as my dearest friend loves her bling!
Nicole’s classic bouquet was composed of romantic blooms of lush roses, ruffled lisianthus, and a little sparkle. We also incorporated brooches into the bouquets to really add that glittering element that Niki loves so much. Classic navy suits with blush ties were a perfect complement to the rose gold bridesmaid dresses.
The centerpieces were completely classic; tall candelabras with taper candles, softened by floral around the base, vases adorned with crystals showcasing the romantic blooms, and tall candle holders centered by lush florals. Did we mention that Niki likes bling and blooms? Balanced by modern table numbers created by our favorite friendor, Greenstar Paperie.
Thank you to Nicole and Rick for having us “floralize” your beautiful day. It truly is an honor to have worked with such an amazing couple. Wishing you a million years of happiness!
