Katherine and Kevin planned an intimate family gathering at Lake Creek Winery. Dinner leading up to sunset on a Saturday in August – we were preparing for extreme heat, and instead we had a cold spell and storm that had us all putting on fleeces and jackets. Oh, Saint Louis weather!
Katherine had taken a few workshops with us and has been starting a farm on her property (Dogwood Pond Farms) with Kevin. She liked our style and Kevin spoke up about a nostalgic color of dahlia. Because their gathering was small, they wanted to focus on a dramatic garland to help everyone enjoy the view of rolling hills and a pond just beyond the winery. Katherine’s interest in gardening and native plants helped shape our vision to include lots of bright locally-harvested flowers, grasses and herbs to give their special event a seasonal and natural look.
