Delle Donne wedding: Cascading flowers, ensemble changes and moving moments

You Do” as performed by string quartet Luminous Sounds.Delle Donne and her father walked down the aisle first, followed by Clifton and her father.The altar? Nothing elaborate. Just an arch made with 2,500 white flowers by Mimosa Floral.More: Elena Delle Donne's dream wedding comes courtesy of The KnotWhat to say?Choosing the right words for a ceremony — and the people to read them — is tough. Clifton and Delle Donne went with family members and friends, even with the officiant.Clifton’s brother Josh read an Apache wedding blessing, telling the brides, “Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be shelter for the other. Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth for the other….”Show ThumbnailsShow CaptionsLast SlideNext SlideElena’s brother Gene read “Blessing for a Marriage” by James Dillet Freeman.Erin Cane, Elena’s agent, was the officiant, joking, “They know I’m a closer, and they really wanted to close this deal.”Cane described Elena as Amanda’s anchor, someone who gives her perspective and makes her laugh. And she told Elena that she is safe, cherished and protected with Amanda.One common word about the twosome came up repeatedly: kindness.A wedding reading that’s gained popularity in the past few years are the words of Justice Anthony Kennedy in the Supreme Court ruling recognizing same-sex marriage nationally.Cane read the passage that states: “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death.” .oembed-frame { width: 100%; height: 100%; margin: 0; border: 0; } Details, detailsDJ or band?How do we feel about dress reveals?An...

Flowers and smiles may postpone fall blues: Sun Messages

The tradition stems far back, to the 7th century, when floral offerings adorned altars.A deepening appreciation of Japanese art and architecture in the West is blooming. It has extended to the Japanese way with flowers. Ikebana is an art, more than hastily sticking flowers into a container. Its materials, branches, leaves, grasses, and blossoms, are cherished and appreciated by the arranger.New members and guests are always welcome at this very creative and friendly group. Location is at Lyndhurst Community Center, 1341 Parkview Road, Lyndhurst. I would imagine that both fine motor skills and the aesthetic sense are challenged in this unique art. For some, ikebana might even be a meditative practice. The social part of garden clubs is truly a wellness activity, too. City and suburban dwellers should not lose their thumbs to technology. The earth is waiting, and it will reward your efforts!The Lyndhurst Garden Club, established in 1937, marks its 80th anniversary this year. And the City of Lyndhurst is celebrating its centennial. The Club invites all to stop at its booth during Lyndhurst Home Days, Friday through Sunday, September 8, 9 and 10. Club members will be on hand to answer garden questions as well as providing a free fun craft for families. There will also be an opportunity to win a raffle basket. The Booth will be located in the pavilion next to the Community Center. The Garden Club will be sharing the pavilion booth space with Thom Treer, Lyndhurst historian and photographer, who will have displays documenting the City's 100 Year Anniversary. Look for the "Lyndhurst Rocks" sign and stop in to participate in this fun event.Sparkling smiles and teeth. I was pleased to read that in th... (cleveland.com)

Barbara White Lord, 86, lent her flower-arranging skills to make worship centers a place of beauty

Her favorite church job, however, was serving on altar guilds, where she used her flower-arranging skills to make the worship centers a place of beauty.She was also a wonderful cook and a skilled seamstress and later discovered a talent for painting with her beautiful seascapes finding a cherished place in the homes of each of her family members. As her children reached maturity, she found a place to take her talents to a new level as administrative assistant at the Annandale United Methodist Church, where she directed a staff of this large and growing congregation.When she moved to Williamsburg, she joined Chapter BA of the PEO Sisterhood and enjoyed the many activities with these wonderful friends. Her final years were spent in the Williamsburg Landing, a retirement community where she made many more acquaintances and enriched the lives of those she met with her joyful spirit and friendly greetings. The family is most appreciative of the loving care provided to her by the staff of the Woodhaven nursing facility.A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 8, at Williamsburg United Methodist Church, with a reception to follow.In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to the Williamsburg United Methodist Church or to a charity of your choice.Share online condolences with the family at nelsencares.com.Comments...

Planting Design Basics, Part 2 of 4

Pollinator: Your garden design could include only plants that nurture our native bees, butterflies, and birds.  Altacal, the local chapter of the Audobon society, offers a Neighborhood Habitat certification for this type of garden. Plantings in a pollinator garden are layered in height (low plants, medium shrubs, and taller trees) to offer varied habitat, and bloom times should be staggered to provide year-round nectar and pollen sources. Pollinator gardens tend to be whimsical, billowy, and informal in style.Cottage: Also attractive to pollinators is the exuberant, free-flowing, and busy cottage garden. Here many varieties of plants rub shoulders in a tangle of flowers and vines, while paths are winding and overgrown, creating a truly informal style.  Formal: The antithesis of the cottage garden is one that contains shrubs coaxed into symmetrical geometric designs, with defined paths echoing those arcs and angles. Usually restricted to leafy, dense shrubs and plots of lawn, the formal garden is high-maintenance and low on food for pollinators. The gardens of Versailles near Paris set the standard for formality in an intentional display of the power of man over nature and King over commoners.  Jane Austen's characters later strolled amidst the shrubbery of formal English gardens. Naturalistic: This garden style takes its cues from the undeveloped landscape. Plants are arranged to evoke a natural flow, as opposed to revealing decisions made by the gardener.  When materials and plants native to the local landscape are used, this garden can create a strong 'sense of place'.Artsy: Perhaps you want your garden to reflect your creative nature. For this type of garden, think outside the box for construction materials and methods.  Broken concrete pieces, old pottery shards, and rusted drainage pipes can make appearances in paving and planting areas.  Arrange your garden with focal points for art and other surprises. Modern: Clean and spare with asymmetrical geometry, the modern garden often incorporates industrial elements, such as corrugated steel repurposed into garden beds or used for fencing.  Plants can soften the geometry or repeat it but this garden style generally favors foliage over flowers. Please visit the Master Gardener Demonstration Garden at Patrick Ranch to see thriving examples of native, Mediterranean, and pollinator plants that can be used in these various garden styles, and others as well.Start your research! Look at gardens with new eyes to identify design and style elements. Keep a log of what you want to incorporate into your own garden, and what you wish to avoid. In the coming weeks, this column will explore question three: What Plant “Jobs” Need To Be Filled In My Yard? and question four: Is My Yard Ready To Plant?  Happy Gardening!This series of four Real Dirt articles summarizes the presentation Butte County Master Gardener Eve Werner created for the Butte County Master Gardeners Spring 2017 Workshop Series.  For more information about the Butte County Master Gardener Program, please visit http://ucanr.edu/sites/bcmg/ ...

Muir Ranch gives students at Muir High a chance to flourish with flowers

Jones Coffee and AltaEats in Pasadena. This year marked the first time they supplied flowers to the Rose Parade, via the Miracle-Gro float, and Baron just closed the program’s first $10,000 deal — to create floral “hats” that will be placed on the heads of 1,000 random attendees and possibly some performers at the upcoming Arroyo Seco Music Festival.Their wedding-flower business is also starting to thrive, due to the fact that flowers purchased from the program are tax-deductible. One satisfied customer on the wedding front is Hollie Loson, a Pasadena resident who had her flowers supplied by the Ranch for her 2014 wedding. She was so impressed by the results that this past January she joined the Ranch team as a part-time marketing advisor to help them expand their reach and orchestrated a special showcase for wedding industry professionals and event spaces at the school in April. “Over the last couple of years, they’ve been hired to do a lot of events and Mud was tapped out by all the hats he was wearing, so they took me on to sell packages for the students,” says Loson. “I have a history in sales, and I talk to the brides, we invite them to the Ranch, and they have a meeting with our lead student designer. We talk about their inspiration, look at photos and if they hire us, we execute whatever is in their floral package on the day of the wedding.” While the focus on flowers puts the students in contact with a broad array of local businesses and puts money in their pockets, the program has impacted one particular student in a much greater way. Manny Garcia started with the program in 2013, and found he enjoyed it so much that he became the lead floral designer. He continues to work with the program now, while studying general-education requirements at Pasadena City College en route to attending a landscape architecture program in Oregon that will be funded by one of the clients he impressed through his work on the Ranch. “I was getting in trouble regularly at school and was told I was failing and wasn’t going to graduate,” Garcia recalls. “I was referred to this agriculture class to get an easy A and boost my GPA, but I really liked it and Mud taught me everything I know. I like that this is peaceful, and lets me get away from the usual routine I have at home. I love how the flowers don’t talk back. It’s relaxing. Garcia also notes that the entrepreneurial aspects of the Ranch have proven invaluable. “The program helps students gain some knowledge of real-life applications rather than McDonald’s or Jack in the Box, where they’ll wind up working if they don’t pay attention in class,” says Garcia. “A lot of people say just start somewhere, but entrepreneurship really opens their eyes to see if they sink or swim or not. You learn by doing in the real world, and this is a place where they can do it.” ...
