Heat Tolerant Wedding Flowers - Bouquets That Can Take The Heat

When a fresh cut flower no longer has a water source it forms a dry patch on the
end of its stem to seal in the moisture much like our own body's protective system. 
When there is extreme heat involved, a fresh cut flower out of water will show signs
of wilting in 20 minutes. As we approach Florida's extreme summer temperatures,
 the fragile flowers like tulips and runumculus as well as low heat tolerant flowers like
 hydrangea could wind up a disaster.

Flowers that can take the heat of summer, tropical blooms of Proteas, Orchids,
Ginger and Roses, bold and  beautiful!

Sands of Time - Lake Mary Events Center Wedding

A flawless day presented itself to this sweet couple, Chad and Ellen, who exchanged
vows at The Lake Mary Events Center.  Chad will soon be serving his commitment
 to our country and we wish him well.
A little information about them: their dads have been best friends since
 high school. Chad and Ellen grew up together and vacationed at
New Smyrna Beach every year with their families.  Chad proposed
to Ellen at the exact place the two families stayed and as a special touch,
thesand used in the mason jar candles was from that very beach.
Mason jars filled with wild flowers were hung on the chairs down the aisle
The wildflower theme was carried through to the reception.  Guests enjoyed the
services provided; amazing food from Puff 'n Stuff Catering, music
from Marc Burgess Productions and photography by Gary and Marti

      Congratulations to Ellen and Chad Peacock.
