I’ve met darling Adela Popescu through a mutual friend, Ivona Nenu (wedding planner) and I have to confess, I was a bit emotional because. Until that moment, I’ve only seen her on TV.
Her warm and relaxed manner conquered me from the very beginning. I’ve liked her from our first meeting, one that lasted three hours, during which we’ve shared ideas and we’ve talked about all sorts of stuff we could do together. This is how her beautiful wedding at Hadar Chalet came into shape, a dream wedding, as Adela described it on her blog. Adela and Radu Wanted an intimate wedding, with only close friends and relatives around, far away from the paparazzi’s lenses. I didn’t even know much about it, except for the fact that it would be held somewhere outside Bucharest, in a forest, in a barn that was going to be launched especially for this event. The civil ceremony was planned for Friday, while the religious ceremony and the party would happen on a Saturday.
For the bridal bouquet Adela was planning to wear at the religious wedding we’ve spent a lot of time talking. I was very happy when she asked me to surprise her with a bouquet for the civil ceremony. All she told me was that she wanted a minimalist and modern bouquet, which led me to think about Serruria Florida, a flower that I adore. I’ve added Astilbe Washington and some eucalyptus. I was nervous, of course, because I didn’t tell her anything about the flowers. Ivona later wrote to me, in the evening, after the ceremony: “what a wonderful bouquet you’ve made, it is GORGEOUS, Adela is so grateful she told me it is simply WONDERFUL!”
When Adela showed me her wedding dress, I knew her bouquet will have to include a vintage touch and that was exactly what she wanted. I used Red Charm peonies, ivy leaves, blackberries, Vanda Red Magic orchids. But, because we decided together that we wanted to mix the new with the traditional, I also used a not so known flower, Protea Nutan. The bouquet went well with Adela’s beautiful wedding dress. I chose the flowers Adela would wear in her hair following the same idea. She told me she didn’t want anything complicated, just a crown in the style of the bouquet. And that’s what I did! When a bride is writing to tell “Oh my God, thank you, I had the most beautiful bouquet in the entire world”, you can definitely get past all the exhaustion, all the late hours working. These words are the greatest joy for any florist.
For the floral décor, we imagined simple, tasteful and elegant arrangements, inspired by Adela’s personality. Because everything was going to happen in the middle of nature, we created a very natural décor. We had rectangular tables, brown Chiavari chairs and brown tablecloths, and on the entire lengths of the tables we’ve put long wooden boards decorated with vases in different sizes, and in them, green moss, ivy leaves and white flowers (astilbe, agapanthus, roses, anthirinum, hydrangea and germini). We chose to bring the nature inside through the suspended candelabras, made out of ivy and eucalyptus. We then decorated the tables with candles and we dressed the wooden pillars of the barn in all sorts of greeneries and ivy – this would become the leitmotiv of the entire wedding.
Adela’s and Radu’s wedding felt like a fairytale… or like a dream! And I am so happy I had the chance to contribute to it!
