An extra special day

I've been a fan of Martha Stewart since I was a little girl  Before opening Fleur, I've probably made every craft in every magazine (and all the spin offs).  Some of the most delicious recipes that are now engrained in my mind from making them so often are from the cooking archives.  And before I had any inkling of any knowledge of working with flowers, I tore out every page of floral design and gardens (this was all before Pinterest, of course).  When my good friend Janelle text me the other morning that Martha Stewart Weddings had listed the top 25 florists to follow on Instagram and we were number 10, my heart stopped for a second.  I couldn't believe it (and still can't!).  To be included on a list that included some of my favorite designers was an honor that still boggles my mind.  I'm forever grateful to be on this list.  Thanks Martha Stewart, for all the years of inspiration.  Knowing that Fleur can also inspire others is really the best thing I could ever ask for in my life.

You can see the link right HERE, and be sure to follow the other 24 amazing designers too!

It's always an honor to be featured in publications, and I'm thrilled to share this one with you from Chicago Social Brides.  You can read the online magazine HERE, but in the meantime enjoy the write up from last year's Eleven-Eleven Wedding Giveaway!  This could not have arrived at a more perfect time, because we just met Amy & Howard, the winners of the 11-11-11 wedding!  They were just a pure delight to meet and I loved creating a vision with them.  I knew we were making some incredible progress when Amy loved the ideas so much that she welled up with tears.  I'm sure that's the first of many times she and Howard will be excited about all of the wonderful vendors involved.  And Amy.., you can't do that again.  You saw me start to well up too!!!!  Congratulations once again to Amanda & Mike (featured below) and Amy & Howard!!
