In Greek, Chloris has a relation to youth and vegetation and means yellow-green. It's no coincidence this gown gleams with fluttering organza petal adorned shoulders, a free flowing silhouette, and of course, finely embroidered silver and champagne flowers. This gown has a youthful nature, created for the bride who calls herself a romantic and who longs to frolic in meadows and fields. Along with an appreciation for the intricacies of design, that's my kind of bride! Lined in pearl silk with an open back and luxurious long train, this wedding dress will give you that dramatic walk-down-the-aisle moment, while maintaining the effortless ease and gentleness of blossoming florals.

Speaking of blossoming florals...given the meaning of 'Chloris' you know I'm loving the pops of butter yellow and vibrant green in this bouquet and floral design. Arranged by Solstice Bloom, the shades of blush, indigo, and violet remind me of the depiction of Flora (Chloris) in Luca Giordano and Andrea Belvedere's painting (above). The color violet represents mystery, extravagance, and power, which is fitting for a nymph turned goddess, don't you think? Flora and Zephyr Artists: Jan Brueghel the Elder | Peter Paul Rubens
Ah, I do love spring gatherings! Everyone has that "new year" energy, and it really feels like a time to rejoice together and celebrate as we all emerge from the quietness and hibernation of winter. I just love how bright and cheery this whole set-up is! The dusty blue table-scape with vibrant blooms and the pastel detailed cake by Delaney's Desserts is just divine...it's all so inviting! And how about that train on Chloris shimmering in the sunshine?! Cosiddetta Flora Fresco from Villa di Arianna
Just as Chloris became Flora, you and your partner will inevitably go through transformations and changes together. Going from single to married is just the beginning! But whatever the two of you go through, as long as you support each other through it all, your love will continue to bloom. Happy Spring, everyone!
