Peonies in August?! Wait...what?
Making brides happy on their wedding day is what makes us most fulfilled in our job here at Cori Cook Floral Design. So my heart broke for Kelley at our first consultation when she explained that she planned her wedding date around wanting peonies EVERYWHERE...only to realize she had gotten some misinformation about when they are actually available. So she went from florist to florist only to hear that she couldn't get peonies in August. I figured it was a long shot, but told her I would look into a resource I had recently heard of---peony growers in Alaska.
After a little bit of research, I got in touch with an AMAZING resource in Alaska who assured us we could definitely get the peonies we wanted. So Kelley got her wish after all: Peonies in August! And we got ours too: Another happy bride! Our work here is done (:
