love notes: we love 'em

First of all, our blog absence the past week is due to not only President's Day Weekend festivities, but also due to a VERY exciting new endeavor for Blossom Sweet that we are working on. Details coming soon!

Secondly, we received two messages from clients yesterday whose weddings took place in the past week or so, one message via text, and one via facebook. We thought we'd share their lil' love notes on the blog today:

client love note via facebook:

"Hey Melissa! I just wanted to say thanks so much for doing my flowers! They were GORGEOUS!!!! Honestly probably one of my very favorite things about my wedding day. You are so talented and I just can't tell you thank you enough. :)"

client love note via text message:

"...Your flowers were a HUGE hit! There were a couple of moments that I wish I could have recorded for you when people were gushing over the flowers."

This, my friends, is what we like to hear! Love notes - we love 'em. Happy clients=happy florists.

these ADORABLE little love cards can be found here

sydney + brandan

We have a few weddings coming up in the next few weeks at Blossom Sweet, one of which is the wedding of the adorable Sydney and Brandan. Thank you two for completing our spotlight questions!

And now, enjoy the latest Blossom Sweet couple spotlight - a great start to a new week!

What were your first impressions of each other?
Sydney: When I first saw Brandan my honest first impression was "Wow that kid has incredibly beautiful eyes, he is really cute but has on more rings than me, a backward flat brim ball cap, and black rim glasses, what is his deal?" Luckily after taking the time to talk with him I realized he is super sweet, with his own sense of style (hence the clothing), and I am still mesmerized by those beautiful brown eyes with eyelashes to DIE for!
Brandan: I thought Sydney was really cute. Apparently she was flirting with me when we first met, but I thought she was just being mean. I guess it was like how little girls act when they think a boy is cute, be mean to them! But after I realized she wasn't actually being mean I started to like her more and more. She had the prettiest smile, and I used to find myself getting to class early with the hopes that she would come early too, and we could talk and get to know each other, outside of the classroom talk.

How did you meet?

Brandan and I met in a marketing class at UVU. I actually was finishing my degree through Utah State but had 1 class at UVU that semester, it happened to be the class I met Brandan in and we were in the same group together for a huge project. He "conveniently" forgot to buy a book for the class and I "conveniently" had one so I asked him if he wanted to study for our first test together, studying turned into dating and a year later here we are getting married! :)

Who said, "I love you" first?

Sydney: Brandan said I love you first, but only because I was too chicken. He was interning in Washington state that summer and we both knew our feelings for each other were strong but wanted to wait to say those words in person, he couldn't wait any longer and ended up saying them over the phone, but it was still great to hear a few weeks later in person.

What are your favorite qualities about each other?

Sydney: My favorite quality about Brandan is how kind and supportive he is to me. He really pays attention to how I feel and will jump in and help out when he can tell I am stressed to the max. He is also incredible about supporting me and us making decisions together and compromising.
Brandan: My favorite quality about Sydney is that she is so genuinely nice. She is the most unselfish person I have ever met, and she always seems to put my needs in front of hers. I am trying so hard to be like her because she is just such a great example of unconditional love.

What has been your most fun date as a couple?

Sydney: The best date we ever had was on a trip to Las Vegas. We went on a 6 mile hike down to some hidden natural hot springs by Hoover Dam. There was a lot of boulder climbing and hopping around but it was totally worth it when we made it to the bottom and got to relax in the hot springs and also sit under a warm waterfall, a VERY cool experience.

How did he propose?

Sydney: I travel for work and was working in St. George the beginning of November for a few days. We had been talking and texting throughout the day as I had been working and he had been doing school work (or so I thought). I had just finished working out at the hotel gym and went back up to my room when I got a call from the front desk saying there was a problem with my card and could I please come down to the front desk to get it figured out. Totally clueless I rode the elevator down and as the doors opened I saw Brandan down on one knee in the hotel lobby with a ring in his hand. I ran up and hugged him (still gross and sweaty from my workout), apparently I forgot to actually say yes because he asked if that meant yes. He showed me the ring which is a family heirloom handed down for about 5 or 6 generations and I was ecstatic. After calling our parents and sharing the good news I was finally able to take a shower and get cleaned up for one of the biggest days of my life. :)

Congrats to the cute couple!

photo of the {love} month

We decided to go somewhat against the grain on our February choice for photo of the month. One would think we would choose something based on traditional Valentine's hues, or perhaps even with flowers as the main focus, right? Wrong. We wanted a photo that represented love, and this photo SPEAKS love to us. Enjoy!

For more photos from Camille + Bryant's wedding, see the post on their summer 2009 wedding here.
