My Quest for Heathers Dahlia's Part I

I had met Heather and her best friend Lilit about 45 days ago to discuss flowers for Heathers wedding. Heather LOVED dahlias and was getting married at the right season for them. The wedding was to take place in her Uncles gorgeous back yard with a amazing pool and yard. We had decided  on dahlias for her bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets. The idea of floating dinner plate dahlias in the pool along with candles was  the perfect finishing touch to this beautiful wedding. The plan was in motion.........

I placed my order for the dahlias 2 weeks before her event  just to make sure the availability. Growers said no problem and the plan was set...  Fast forward to the week of the wedding....  The dahlias had come in and were not the quality they needed to be and the dinner plate dahlias didn't even come in. I called all over and had made at least 20 phone calls, to Boston, NYC and all the growers in between with no luck. The back up plan, after a state wide search for dahlias, was going to be yellow zinnias for the bouquets and clusters of large marigolds for the pool. Heather was Ok with this plan but I could tell she was bummed about the dahlias...

After I picked the backup flowers from a few local farms and was heading home to start the designing of her flowers, I received a phone call from a sweet lady who is a dahlia grower and has such a passion for this amazing  flower.............................
