Memorial Day!!


Christina Marie Events & Floral wishes to thank the brave men and women of the Armed Forces, and remember those who have lost their lives defending liberty. God bless you and your families
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day!

Being a military wife is it very important to me to recognize past and present soldiers in all branches of the military. It is especially important to remember those that have made the ultimate sacrifice that preserves the freedom we enjoy today. We will never forget the price that has been paid.

If you have a family member or friend that has lost their life in combat a way to honor them on your wedding day is by using red poppies. You can add them to bouquets, use as boutonnieres, do as the memorial vase or hang off an open chair in honor of the person that could not be there. Enjoy the pictures below from military weddings, these weddings are so moving and powerful to be a part of!!

History & meaning behind the Red Poppies (Wikipedia)
In the United States, it is common practice to wear "Buddy (Red) Poppies" (artificial, paper or plastic versions distributed by the Veterans of Foreign War) during the weeks preceding Memorial Day, the last Monday in May to commemorate the sacrifice of veterans in the various wars.

Exciting News!!!!!!!!!!!!


I always told my husband whenever we start a family it must be around the busy wedding season. Well as we all know there is really no way to plan a baby like you can the details of a wedding. However it worked out that way for us!! Jon and I will be welcoming our first born baby by November 5th this year. We couldn't be more excited about our growing family. With this being said all of my dates from October 1st, 2010 through April 1st, 2011 are either booked already or are now blocked off for the baby. I have a few dates remaining in 2010 for Day of Coordination or Flowers if you are looking to book yet. August 20th & 21st and September 24th & 25th. If you are interested please contact CME.

In celebration of the wonderful news I will be offering $150 off my Day of Coordination and $100 of your flower order for all Weddings in 2011. Reference the Baby special when booking!!

Suzanne & Tom


CME's busy wedding season is officially under way! Congratulations to Suzanne and Tom on their May 1st Nuptials! This was such a simply elegant wedding done right on a budget! Their ceremony was in the Lakewood Cemetery Chapel in Minneapolis and man is this an amazing chapel with hand laid mosaics and a dome ceiling. The reception was in the stars room on Windows of Minnesota in the IDS tower. So beautiful. CME did a simple lime centerpiece with floating candles and their colors splashed in petals. I LOVED doing her bouquets as greens and pinks seem to be my favorites this year, we mixed 2 types of Hydrangea with HOT pink & light green roses!!

Congratulations again and Best wishes Mr. & Mrs.. Such a cute couple! More pictures to come!
