But isn't that the nature of weddings? The food and drinks are consumed, the party shuts down, guests leave town, and all that's left is the memories. And flowers are — or they can be — a big part of setting the tone of the day.
Luckily for me, Charleston's most popular florist took forever to get back to me, so I started searching around and discovered Stems, run by Anne Bowen. I met with her today, and I've never been more excited about flowers. She's creative, enthusiastic, understanding of my budget concerns, and I trust her completely. I was so excited, I rewarded myself with a cupcake from Sugar.
(If I only had the cajones...)
