What They Did Right: Lisha and Jessy

Posted by on Jul 2, 2009 in Blog | 7 Comments

Last month, on seemingly the only gorgeous Saturday in June, our dear friends  Lisha and Jessy (of Fleurs)  tied the knot under a tent on Fire Island. The irony of having a Saturday off and going to a wedding didn’t escape us, but with Mayra’s boyfriend in tow, we boarded the Ferry excited to be guests!!! I may have made mention of the fact that Mayra and I are The WORST WEDDING GUESTS EVER…. literally, we are always JUST on time, we usually are writing our cards out WHILE sitting at our table. Once we were out buying outfits to wear just HOURS before the event…. For some reason, when it’s time to look cheerful and not fade into the background, we have brain farts.  Anyway, I’d love to say it was different it this case, but that morning was a cluster@#k to the ferry!

Jessy and Lisha are the kind of couple that makes you excited about love and it was apparent that their friends all felt the same way. The event was held at a private home of a friend in The Pines, with cocktails around a stunning pool and the ceremony and dancing in a gorgeous tented deck set against the ocean. The drinks were flowing, the company was wonderful and we were so excited to celebrate their love!
So, if you were ever wondering, this is what a florists’ wedding looks like, this is it! They turned the tent into something stunning by adding gorgeous draping, a floral chandelier and lovely lanterns. The filled the pool with tons of peonies and roses and selected a stunning contrasting color scheme of Aqua and Red. It was beachy, but sophisticated. The food was a lovely buffet of their favorite foods and guests mingled over mojitos! Jessy wore a gorgeous vintage gown and Lisha wore Armani.  The very lovely and talented Angela Jimenez took these stunning photos! jessy

Congratulations to the wonderful couple!!!

    Jessy and Lisha had the most beautiful, elegant and laid back wedding. The most wonderful time I ever had at a wedding (okay, well mine too). Jessy and Lisha were gorgeous! The flowers…. jawdroppingly luscious and elegant. Everyone seemed to have such a wonderful time. They had the nicest friends who were so warm and welcoming. Love was certainly the reason we were there and it was so evident among all the guests. The whole day was perfect and I felt like I was welcomed into their friends’ lives with open arms. I am so lucky that Jessy is my sister and Lisha is too! I ended up with new friends that day which felt like family to me. Jessy and Lisha are lovely, kind and good people and they deserved a perfect day. Congratulations! I love the blog too!

    Looks like it was a blast! I was just in Cherry Grove this weekend and thought to myself how it would have been great to get married in Fire Island. We’re doing it in NYC in September which will still be amazing but Fire Island is such a wonderful open, fun loving, beautiful place. Congrats to the couple! You can see how in love they are.
