Hana Floral Design *New Boutique*

Hana Floral Design opened a new boutique opened at 15 Holmes Street in historic downtown Mystic, Connecticut. I had the pleasure of attending an opening last night which was catered by A Thyme to Cook with dessert by Toria Dolce. It was really good to see so many familiar faces who I’ve worked with, and to finally put faces to names of some of Connecticut’s best wedding artists. If you’re looking for a spectacular floral designer in Connecticut, I highly recommend looking at Hana Floral Design. Congratulations Yumiko!

After Jeff and Marisol saw each other for the first time on their wedding day, I took this image of them with their wedding party watching from the stairs. Jones Soda has asked to use this image on their labels, marketing and promotions. Sweet!

Another place to see my work on Jones Cola is in a couple of the latest Brides local magazines. Jennifer and Shayne used one of our engagement photos on Jones Cola bottles for their wedding favors. An image of these wedding favors was picked up for Brides Southern California. Look for their story in the Real Wedding section of the latest Brides Connecticut, Spring/Summer 2008 issue.
