It’s been one year since Nancy & Mike got married. They were married at the Saint Georges Antiochian Orthodox Church and their gorgeous reception was held at the Ramallah Club.
J Mosley photography shot their wedding and Christy Whitehead Photography did beforehand photos of the reception hall for us.
Since it’s been a year, we figured we’d ask the beautiful and pregnant (with a girl named Rose, after Nancy’s middle name) Nancy about her wedding.
What do you remember most about your wedding day?
My first dance with my husband. Having 300 people watch us on the dance floor, it was surreal.
What was your favorite part?
All the dancing was really fun, the band really made it fun!
Why did you choose A Fantasy in Flowers?
I was reluctant after having a series of strike-outs with several other “recommended” florists but ultimately I went with them because Susan was professional and confident in her work. I trusted she could handle such a big event.
What would you say to brides who are thinking about doing their own flowers?
Why would you want to torture yourself? Leave that to the professionals, you will have 100 other things to take care of. Flowers are beautiful and need to be done by a professional. Till this day, I still get compliments on the flowers and décor all done by A Fantasy in Flowers. I would NEVER recommend doing that, even if you are crafty, not for your own wedding!!!
What was it like working with A Fantasy in Flowers?
They were hands down my favorite wedding vendor. And I loved all my vendors, but they were the easiest to work with. Susan and her team understood what I wanted and didn’t try to impose their vision on me like so many others did. Susan set up a meeting with me at the venue and then her creative team really shined and put together a magical, romantic event for me. All with very little color which is what I wanted. She captured my own vision and her team executed it beautifully. The venue I had it at even features pictures from only my wedding on their website, guess they liked it too ☺ They have several weddings there and only my pictures are featured. I’d say that is a great compliment for A Fantasy in Flowers!
(A Fantasy in Flowers did all of the drapery for Nancy’s wedding.)
Anything else you would like to add?
Do not waste your time with other florists. I probably met with 10 and knew when I met Susan that my search was over. My bouquets, centerpieces, linens, room décor, all were beautiful. Really they deliver, with no headache and can do it within your budget and all the while being 100% professional. That’s a hard thing to say in the wedding industry.
Congrats on your anniversary Nancy and Mike and on the impending birth of your little girl Rose!
