I am so excited that peony season is here :) They truly are one of my all time favorite flowers. I think it is because they remind me of growing up in Lewiston, our gardens, and watching all the ants enjoy the sticky peony buds!

Below is a recent wedding that we did at the lovely Duke Gardens!

We are so lucky that there are so many great photographers in this area that are so sweet to share their images. AND Robin Lin just so happens to be one of our favorites :) Thanks so much to her for sharing her beautiful work (be sure to check out her website http://www.robinlin.com/)!!!

thanks, rachael

Recent Durham Wedding

I LOVE when our bride's share the wedding day images with us :) Below are a couple of GREAT images from a wedding at the beginning of the month shot by Mark Schuleler (http://www.markschuelerphoto.com/).

Jessica, the bride, not only got her dress from us but we also had the pleasure of working with her at the flower shop! She really was one of the most laid back brides we have ever worked with and she just had a great perspective on the whole affair :)

(don't miss the image of her wedding day shoes - AWESOME!!)

for the cocktail tables she used vintage bud vases and for the reception tables her parents collected all different color/shape/size vases and we mounded white and blue hydrangeas!!

Last Weekend!

Below are two weddings that we did this past weekend - more camera shots with my phone :)

The first set of images is from our Sunday wedding at one of my very very favorite locations in Durham, the Duke Gardens.

Below is our Saturday wedding! If you don't reconized the location for the ceremony it is the field of the Bulls Stadium (awesome right?!). Thanks to Sally (from Sally Oakley Personalized Wedding Design) for thinking of us for this wedding - it was so much FUN :)

Chapel Hill Wedding

I had such an amazing time this weekend working on this Chapel Hill wedding. It was out at the bride's beautiful family farm! The fantastic Grace, Grace Leisure Events, was the coordinator and as also every detail was perfect :) We also got to work with Dave Watson, Get Lit Special Event Lighting, which is always a pleasure! Below are a couple of images I took with my phone - I can't wait until the professional photos are done! -the bride had a live edge board made and installed between the two trees which created such a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony. we also hung lanterns and ribbons with flowers pinned to them from the tree branches :) -from dave's light structures in the tent we hung lanterns and more ribbons with flowers pinned to them - loved it :) -when we were cleaning up the next day this butterfly had found a happy home in our arrangement.

Spring Fever Sample Sale

Spring Cleaning - Tre Bella Style As my dad will agree I rarely get the itch to clean, but occasionally it happens and when I do, I like to do major cleaning - with a touch of remodeling. When I was a kid and the crazy urge took over my mom would find me in the room moving everything to a new location.

As I look around Tre Bella Bridal, I can feel the urge to do major spring cleaning. I have the new vision of where everything needs to go, but to move everything were I want it I need to sell some our sample gowns.

So Friday, April 22nd from 10am - 7pm we will be having a Special Spring Fever Sample Sale!
On this one day, our sample gowns will reduced even lower. All Melissa Sweet, Priscilla of Boston, Manuel Mota, Angel Sanchez and Lela Rose sample sale gowns will be priced between $500 and $1,000!!!

Until next time,
