August Things

 

Hi everybody! I know I haven't been the best at keeping up to date with the blog. The little man has been a fulltime job and I rarely have two free hands to type (sorry for the delay in responding to emails). Happy August! I hope you are all having the best summer yet whether you're getting married, planning your wedding or just living your best beach life. I want to share with you all of the exciting things we have going on this month!

Not only have we been non stop with weddings every weekend, but we have been also booking weddings for next year! I'm getting so excited for all of the gorgeous venues we'll be at, the fresh designs we get to create and meeting all these awesome people I have the pleasure of working with. I am the luckiest person that I get to do what I love! And my clients truly make it the best! Are you or someone you know tying the knot in 2019? Make sure to get in touch with us now and save the date (and download our free checklist too)! Unlike many designers, we don't double book, so you get all of our attention for your special day. JUNE 2019 & SEPTEMBER 2019 are almost completely booked so don't wait!

In all my years and even starting this business, I have never participated in a styled shoot. All of our pretty photos of our work are from REAL weddings. Recently an opportunity came up and after hearing about the concept and look we hopped on board. This shoot will be taking place at the end of the month at a gorgeous spot up north with a whole bunch of wildly talented creative professionals. Since this is the only large scale shoot we will be participating in this year, Russo Fab has some BIG plans and we're going to get real groovy with it. Pics to follow. Make sure to follow us on Insta and FB and see what we're up to!

We hooked up with fellow new mom friend/lady boss/artist extraordinaire Haley Tyson for our own local mini shoot. Imagine all the pretty paper goods and fun florals joining forces. I'm totally looking forward to this and sharing all of our work with you! We're going for something different so you won't see the color of the year or heavy greenery used here. In the meantime- if you want custom invitations, need handwritten place cards or dream of your seating chart written on something cool and personal then get at my girl! Her style is unlike any other and she's so so fun to work with!

Next time our little boy wants to sleep in, I'll post a new #BestDayEver. In May we had the sweetest bride with the most fun and creative wedding. They got married on the same day as the Kentucky Derby and incorporated a few elements of the biggest race of the year into their wedding. Her flowers were bright, springy and happy. I pinky promise I will share their #BestDayEver soon!!

Alas, all work and no play makes Russo Fab a very overtired Mummy. We have one weekend off that we'll get to enjoy as a family and hopefully escape to the Cape for a night away. I'm very grateful for the success of our 2nd year in business. Following our little weekend vacay, we are nonstop until December. This short and sweet break is just what we need to recharge and get back to creating flower magic.

How is your summer going? Have you done anything fun or traveled someplace new? I still can't fathom how quickly this year has flown by. It's the last unofficial month of summer so take time to relax, soak up the sunshine or enjoy the company with family and friends. Thank you to all our followers and friends for reading! More Fab flowers are coming at you soon.
