Hello Lovelies....Have you guys seen the new Amazing Moments campaign video from Dove? It is such a sweet short film that tells the love story of Louisa & Rob, and it captures Louisa's real-life proposal to Rob!...yes, it maybe untraditional, but this is what makes it so AMAZING! I love it and I'm glad I teamed up with the brand to share it with you. If you haven't seen it, you have to check it out below.
The video highlights that sometimes the moments that make you sweat are the most amazing moments of all, and you can count on Dove Clinical Protection Antiperspirant to offer undeniable wetness protection while also caring for your skin. Going to have to try this one! After viewing the video (for the 5th time), I started to think about my Amazing Moment....wedding related of course.
Weddings are truly a beautiful time in a couple's life, and for me, it's also a busy and sometimes stressful time. You see, I'm worrying about flowers from the moment the order is placed with the grower, to receiving the shipment and creating the floral designs, all the way up to the delivery on the wedding day. But the one thing that I'm always the most nervous and excited about is the bride's bouquet. It's the one floral design that's to be done by me and me alone!
For me, the bride's bouquet is the most important floral element of the wedding. It's seen in all the pictures and it's truly the reflection of the bride's personality. I must confess that when I'm designing the bouquet, I'm a nervous wreck until that amazing moment when the bride smiles and she see it for the first time. During the entire process, I'm thinking is the bride going to be happy or not when she sees it, if it is going to be everything she imagined and more, and if the flowers are going to be as beautiful on tomorrow as they are right now! I'm excited to share that my brides have always loved their bouquets and through all the nerves and excitment, I'm able to maintain a calm until that amazing moment when I place the bouquet in the bride's hands on her wedding day!
Do you have an amazing moment that made you sweat? I hope you enjoy the Amazing Moments campaign video as much as I did! Grab the tissue box....you're gonna need it!!
Happy "Flower Friday" Guys....I hope you all have a wonderful weekend planned! I'm starting the day off with a colorful arrangement of ranunculus, tulips and anemones.....the vibrant colors of the ranunculus and tulips are the perfect mix of yellows and oranges and the white anemones with the black centers add the perfect "pop" to the design! Have a great weekend everyone and thanks so much for stopping by the cafe....shout to Serena ofLove By Serena for the beautiful pic....xoxoxo
