feel like I need a drum roll for this blog…….I am over the moon excited that I have a huge part of the wedding completed – I have finally picked and paid the deposit on the florist. After weeks of agonizing over which florist I should chose and which one got my “vision,” I went with my gut: the first florist I met with. The florist who has done amazing work at the Ranch before and has a great relationships with the crew at the Ranch (I mean he is the official florist at the Ranch and the Biltmore for a reason right!). So how I could I go wrong. Jerry and his crew at SR Hogue are my florists.

{this is their shop!}

Here are some pictures of SR Hogue’s fabulous work. I can’t wait for our trip out to Santa Barbara in February to finalize all the flowers for the “Big Day”.
