FLORISTS' REVIEW APRIL 2012 - Honorable Mention

You know when you really love something and think its great, you think everyone else should feel the same way? Then they do feel that way and its awesome! Well, that is exactly how all of the girls of Lisa Foster Floral Design felt about Hannah Roberts Manning wedding on April 9, 2011. To preface the story a little we need to tell you about the wedding and the bride. Hannah didn't want much in the way of flowers or decorations for her Country Chic wedding. In fact it was her dad that wanted to add more flowers to the wedding! Her color scheme was pretty simple; yellow, white, navy and gray. It might sound simple but it made a big impact. We just can't get over the color combo!
Every year we enter a contest for the Florists' Review Magazine Picture Perfect Weddings. In 2011 we won best bouquet with Kelly Kohlbusch Huddleston's bridal bouquet.  For 2012 we may not have won a big door prize or gotten on the cover, Hannah's wedding did receive honorable mention! The article reads;

     It has been several years since we've had a wedding of honorable mention in the 
    "Picture-Perfect Weddings" contest, but we couldn't let this one go unpublished. 
    With its perfectly executed details and 
    simple country elegance, this is the event we all wish we could have attended. 
    And perhaps most interesting is how it came together to fulfill the desired look 
    of the minimalist bride, who at first "really didn't want any flowers at her wedding,
    florist Lisa Foster reports.

Along with Hannah's wedding we submitted two other 2011 weddings for consideration for the contest. Though they didn't win any awards they did place in other areas of the magazine! Thank you Julie Roberts Solon and Emily Williams Baker for your beautiful and unique ideas that let our creative juices flow! Here are the pages from the magazine, please enjoy them!
