CHRISTINE'S STORY: OUR UNIQUE CENTERPIECES

Flowers have always held a place close to my heart. When I was young, my mom used to make sill flower arrangements for our house and for friends. In high school, my close friend worked at the local florist. I thought what a beautiful line of work. So I started working at the local florist in high school. I realized though, my favorite florals were wedding florals and luckily I got the opportunity to work with a florist that does a lot of weddings. Bardwell's Florist became like my second home and family.

CHRISTINE'S STORY: MY BRIDAL SHOWER

Our wedding date, July 03, 2016, is getting closer and closer! The next big event before my wedding is my bridal shower and I couldn't be more excited! My mom is hosting my bridal shower for me and she let me choose the theme and venue. I'm really excited to see how things pan out. I'm planning on having my bridal shower in June, a month before my wedding. It will be an intimate event at The Villa in Woodland Hills. My mom, cousin, and I went to brunch there and I fell in love with the scenery. It is perfect for a bridal shower. The Privato is a private room up a gorgeous staircase with a cozy fireplace and furnished balcony. It feels like home!
