One beautiful, summer morning my grandmother and I went for a walk in her garden that lined the side of her home in New Orleans. It seemed like virtually overnight a massive array of wild flowers in every color took over her rose garden. I was thrilled when she decided that all of them must be picked before the roses were disturbed. I started gathering them one by one. Soon, I had what seemed like one hundred flowers in my tiny hands. It was the first bouquet that I ever created! That evening when my mother returned to pick me up, I presented her with the floral bouquet. Her face lit up at the site of dozens of flowers tied with a blue velvet ribbon created just for her. Most of us start with the simplest of memories of really lovely things in our lives. When you commit to a marriage or even a meaningful party or event, remember the innocent memories that brought you the most joy in your life. I have designed thousands of bouquets in my life but the thought of wild flowers always grounds me to know what is really important: Love. Joy. Kindness and Simple Pleasures. It would be my honor to design flowers for you that incorporate your happy place. Whether your wedding is large or small, JMercer Design would like to be a part of your special day!
