Everything about this day was perfection. The team at Inn by the Sea executed flawlessly and Daphne & Dean did an amazing job capturing every detail with the most beautiful photographs. Full swoon.
For the overall floral plan, Josie was clear about what she wanted & the vibe she was going for while still giving us the creative freedom that makes doing this type of work so special. A freestanding floral arch full of hydrangea, dahlias, strawflower, amaranth, and autumnal leaves framed the ceremony space and I would create some version of this over and over again for anyone that let me.
A mix of runner arrangements & centerpieces was used for the reception tables with basil, anemone, and ranunculus adding whimsy & movement to offset the heaviness that can come with hydrangea. The real focal point of the reception was the hanging garden chandelier, a feat that couldn’t have been accomplished without an amazing team and, most importantly, my dad (shoutout John Mankus).
Thank you to Josie & Patrick for letting us be a part of your special day, Callie, Ashley, and Elizabeth for helping me make it all happen, and Tom & Dad for helping me clean it all up.
