The peony, roses, summer stock, hydrangea, queen anne’s lace, dahlia and camelia are deliciously divine.

A Feathered Fete

I have to admit – I am in countdown mode.

Saturday – July 10th – is a day I have been waiting for since 2009.

This weekend, Brittany and Bob, tie the knot.  And they are doing it in serious, sophisticated style a la Hollywood Regency meets Knickerbocker Hotel.

The adorable Sarah Levy of Sarah’s Candies is the beautiful bridal baker du jour – and as you can see – even the cake is going to be beyond fabulous.

Hints of fluffy, white ostrich plumes will dot the white and ivory hydrangea, dahlia, orchid, bouquets, centerpieces, placesettings, and more.

Just a few more days…it just can’t come soon enough.
