Larkspur… even the name is romantic

Today’s bride requested a bouquet of purple and green. I thought to myself, “Purple and green? How in the world am I going to make that pretty?” Then she asked for a head wreath. Ummmm, no. I know, I know, all the answers are supposed to be yes. It wasn’t easy to tell a bride […]
