I met Kyle and Melissa when they were in town from NYC - they came over to our house one summer evening for a beer and a chat on the deck and we bonded over a mutual affinity for delicious foods. (NOTE: if anyone wants to have a "beer client meeting" I think those are more fun than coffee. You can come to my house, have a beer with me and my husband, Paul, and chat about your wedding. That sounds fun, right?)
What I like about Kyle and Melissa is their authenticity. While they were inspired by images culled from the internet, they ultimately set out to create their own story, with design elements special and unique to them. They also won me over with their wedding inquiry questionnaire. I send out a questionnaire to everyone that contacts me about wedding flowers to gather the specifics - when, where, how many - the must know basics. I also ask more touchy feely questions, like the mood you want to evoke, how you want your guests to feel, what are the textures and colors that get you going. Also - your one true love. How did you meet? What do you love about him or her? What do you do together? When I received an entire love story from Kyle on how he fell for Melissa, I knew I had to share it with the world (thanks for allowing me to.) Kyle's excitement for marrying his dream girl oozed through the internet into my heart and this is the reason I do this. Thanks for reminding me.
