FROM AN­NIE: Be­fore we be­came a cou­ple, Jimmy and I were co­work­ers. One day, we went river raft­ing with sev­eral of our col­leagues. I fell over­board and Jimmy jumped in to res­cue me, so I guess it’s fair to say he fell for me! We wanted our wed­ding to feel ele­gant and lux­u­ri­ous. Our event de­sign­ers, the team from ROA Flo­ral Event De­sign, did a tremen­dous job. I was com­pletely taken aback when I saw the space for the first time. The flow­ers were truly out­stand­ing. Both our cer­e­mony and re­cep­tion spa­ces were filled to the brim with the fresh­est blooms: im­ported roses, pink and white hy­drangeas, cym­bid­ium or­chids, tulips and pe­onies. I espe­cially loved my bou­quet— it was so ele­gant. Walk­ing down the aisle with my fa­ther was an un­for­get­table mo­ment. When my dad let go of my arm and linked it to my future hus­band’s, it felt as though I was tran­si­tion­ing from one phase of life to the next: it was deeply sym­bolic.
