Sweet Lilacs - flowers for weddings and events
Flowers represent beauty, love and life.
My floral work is relaxed, airy, casual and romantic. I love texture and sweet fragrance. I love the combination of ranunculus, peonies, open roses, queen anne's lace, dusty miller and of course, lilacs.
I am fortunate to say I designed florals for over a thousand weddings over the years. I am humbled that my small role brought smiles to a special day. For me, weddings are tender, sentimental, amorous and poetic.
Why Sweet Lilacs?
In the language of flowers, purple lilacs symbolize the first emotions of love. The fragrant lilac blooms announce the arrival of spring; and with the time of their bloom, signals whether spring will be early or late.
The sweet perfumed flowers are short-lived and lasts for only a couple weeks of the year, so enjoy and savor these moments.
Three flowers bloom each day
Falsely fragile Queen Anne’s Lace
Clump of effervescent Daisies
A singular Black-eyed Susan
Wildflowers all growing in the fields of our hearts
Each her own scent, shape, pose
Craning for light, food, attention
Willingly, lovingly tended by the gardener,
the one who sowed the seed

The story of lilac, according to Greek mythology, begins with a beautiful nymph named Syringa (lilac's botanical name). Captivated by her beauty, Pan, the god of the forests and fields, chased Syringa through the forest. Frightened by Pan's affections, Syringa escaped him by turning herself into an aromatic bush – the flower we now refer to as lilac.
