Getting Excited for Fall

So here in Savannah it finally feels like fall. Chilly nights and nippy toes and noses and animals curling in a bit tighter with us on the bed; yup, it's officially autumn.

It's rare we do not have a wedding on Saturday and I've been itching to work on our website and play with tremendous flowers, weeds, dried branches off the railroad track and any other odd organic piece I might forage. (I am certain I am part squirrel).

Stay tuned and have a gander at what's new for the fall. We're "cooking up a storm" in our flower kitchen and can't wait for you to see what we're up to. Time for my cozy bed.. I'm the last one up. Good night!

Sunday Morning

I had to check the clock first as soon as I typed the title to see if it was indeed still morning. It is.. for another thirty minutes. Russ just went to return his way-too big Tonka toy of a truck that was a loaner since his is in the shop, but man, it could haul three weddings worth of rentals I'm pretty certain.
Thinking about this odd-in-between weather here in Savannah where Summer and Fall are arm wrestling and neither one seems to have the upper hand.
We're ready for a mountain trip, crisp apples and funky colored gourds and crunchy leaves.. We need a little trip.
The photo above was from an autumnal, colorful photoshoot we did with Mackensey Alexander and Ivory + Beau last year.. It captures the mood I'm in this cloudy, restful Sunday.

The Rhythm of Locusts

The sound of locusts, the lulling bedtime of summer ending. I have been thinking in desert mode these past few weeks. We've had our fair share of rain, but there is something sweet and haunting about one season laying down for another. Leaves are falling in the streets, the children have gone back to school and I'm in a southwest space. The quietness of summer has allowed me to dig and plant with dirt under my "why-do-I-EVER-get-a-manicure" nails. In my love for arranging flowers, planting arrangements has been a fun diversion.

Getting Ready for Valentine's Day

We're thrilled to introduce our first ever Valentine's Day flowers. The day is especially meaningful to me because that is when my darling proposed. As campy as it seems, it's true. Along the narrow walkway deep in the Ubud Monkey Forest in Bali, Russ gingerly got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Monkeys like all things shiny so we threw them our last bananas and got out of dodge.

Sitting with Sebastian

I've just popped in from the studio after making a sunny arrangement for today's photo shoot. I'm sitting here in bed while Sebastian plays with his fun stuffed flower (might as well get him started young). It's wintry and gray and my hands are all "jacked up" with tendonitis of sorts. The cold doesn't help. Russ is outside fixing the tire on his pick up truck which is literally on a car jack and looks quite red neck outside our front door. We came to the conclusion that perhaps this is where the expression "jacked-up" came from... if the shoe fits?

Flower Crush Friday

In the wedding industry flower shops would not be able to do their thing with out a venue, photographers with out the wedding party. It is an interwoven world of many different people working together to make one person have a beautiful spectacular day. Here at Urban Poppy we love meeting new people and working with others. This past weekend we had the pleasant opportunity to work with Sweet Home Studio Photography for Stephanie and Kevin's wedding. They were a delight and took some wonderful photos of the big day. Take a peak.

Photographer: Sweet Home Studio 
Venue: Bryson Hall
Flowers: Urban Poppy 

A Word From the Mother of the Bride - Diane

Here at Urban Poppy we love our brides, and making them feel special and honored on their big day is something we strive for. Receiving feedback about how we influenced their big day is why we do what we do. So when we received this e-mail we were honored. Thank you Diane for your kind words.


Suzanne and Patrick's Wedding was absolutely stunning! The bridal and bridesmaid bouquets received a lot of compliments since you used flora and succulents and other items/plants indigenous to the area !!!! I thought they were BEAUTIFUL!!!

You did an absolutely stellar job with the reception!!!! The tables, the centerpieces and the candy bar were screaming "beachy elegance" and was everything Suzanne and I had hoped for!!! You are AWESOME!!!

Once we have photos I will have Suzanne forward them!!!

Blessings to you and may you continue to make MEMORIES for other couples on their special day
