Married On A Mountain
Suzanne Hopkins (Bride) STRATTON MOUNTAIN, VT
My husband and I wanted to have a unique wedding and do things a little different than traditional. That's how we ended up having a wedding ceremony at the top of a mountain, having all of our guests ride in a Gondola. So, when my husband and I started looking at wedding florists, we were shocked at the price tag and noticed that going with a florist could give up a lot of our individuality. We were doing some DIY projects with the wedding and entertained the DIY flower idea, but nervous given we knew NOTHING about flowers! (EEK!) We started looking up florist alternatives and stumbled upon FiftyFlowers. We had a vision of what we wanted (colors, simple) but knew nothing about how to put floral
arrangements together. We were sold on the consultative nature of FiftyFlowers. Early in the process, I spoke with Violet (for over an hour) and she coached me on the potential types of flowers that would work with our vision, while staying in my budget, and shared a ton of resources on how to create the vision. After a few variations, working with the Fifty Flowers team, we placed our order!! Once the order was placed, I got a phone call from FiftyFlowers and they finalized the deliverable time frames - making recommendations to ensure that the flowers would be optimal for our wedding day. Due to the types of flowers ordered we had deliveries over two days. When the flowers arrived I got another phone call to ensure that I fully understood how to take care of the flowers. Immediately I was able to hydrate and get my flowers ready for the big day. Recruiting my parents and bridesmaids, all hands were on deck the day before our wedding and we put together all of the bouquets and centerpieces. With a set plan, it took no time at all! And everything looked great. In fact, during the wedding, multiple people complimented on the flowers and were shocked to learn that they were a DIY! I loved that we were able to bring more of our individuality into our special day. FiftyFlowers made it easy to accomplish and were there every step of the way! We had our unique mountain wedding with the perfect complement of flowers.
