This past Friday I had the pleasure of designing wedding flowers for a couple who held their reception at the Redondo Beach Historic Library. It's a pretty cool venue, complete with ocean views from both the first and second floor. The wedding colors were yellow and blue. I created the arrangements using yellow China mums, dark blue hydrangea, white peonies, and yellow billy buttons.

Funny story when I went to pick up the flowers Friday morning. The woman who runs the flower warehouse asked for my company name, so I said "Stiles Fischer" (my old design company that I shared with a partner, Nathan Fischer, which is the name that my account at the flower warehouse is still under). Then the woman yells out, "Styles For Sure!!!" to the men pulling the orders. I thought she was kidding at first, just trying to be clever, but when I got the flowers and saw the label, I realized she wasn't joking and had misunderstood me when I placed the order and also when I was picking it up. Note to self, the wholesale flower warehouse doesn't double check account names...
