Lake George, NY Wedding

The New York wedding went well last weekend-what a treat to work with my sister's old friend as the bride!
My sister and I loaded up her Subaru and headed out across New Hampshire and Vermont. It was great to be with my sister alone, for the first time in a long time. We laughed so much we missed our exit and ended up deep in southern Vermont before we realized our detour!
We stayed at the Chelka Lodge in Bolton Landing, New York-what a view!
Here are a few pictures of the flowers, cake and the new couple.
A detail of the cake flowers I decorated the cake with.
I assembled the bouquets and boutonnieres in the hotel room the night before...I was able to use Hosta leaves, daisies and Annabelle Hydrangea blossoms from my garden, so the bouquet was extra special for the bride who grew up in Maine and now lives in Florida. I wanted her to have a piece of Maine with her as she was married...
I used Dendrobium orchids, Hypericum berry, spider mums, yarrow, Kermit poms and daisy mums to complement the brown, green and white color scheme.
Luckily, once all of the flowers were out of the car, we had some room to visit a few antiques shops and junk stops along the way home. I found a great vintage cooler for my husband for Father's Day-for $15!
Happy wedding and marriage to Chris and Rebecca! It was an honor to be a part of this very important event in your lives, I love you both!
