Your wedding day and wedding planning are both as hard and as stressful as you make them be.”Kaitlan Bondurant & Robin HerringtonWed on October 20, 2018?Cliffview Lodge, Red River Gorge, Campton, KentuckyPhotographer: Mickie WintersFlowers: Bel-Air Florist, Versailles, KentuckyAttire: Dress from Madison James. Suit from Wildfang.?Hair: Lavish Looks, Sparkle BeelerKaitlan is from Cincinnati and Robin is from Louisville, so Red River Gorge was a good meeting point between the two locations. “Standing in front of the beautiful gorge with all of our friends and family was magical,” Robin says. “We had 60 guests and it was the perfect amount for us. We were able to give all of our guests personal attention, and by the end of the weekend everybody felt like one big family.“(Instagram is) great for initial inspiration, but we started to second-guess our planning decisions after seeing a gorgeous escort card table or fun food station. Trust your instincts and believe in your vision. And get a wedding planner. For real. Jeannie Smith, our planner and coordinator (AshBy Wedding & Event Planning), knew what vendors would be appropriate for what we wanted and, more importantly, knew the vendors that would be willing to trek out into the wilds of Kentucky.”This originally appeared in the Spring/Summer 2019 issue of Louisville Bride.

This is how the Easter lily became the holiday's flower - NOLA.comThursday, May 02, 2019
The Easter lily, Lilium longiflorum, is native to the Ryukyu Islands off the southern end of Japan. In the 1880's this lily was widely cultivated in Bermuda, and bulbs were shipped from there to the florist industry in this country. Around 1900, the Japanese took over the annual growing and exportation of Easter lily bulbs to the United States, and continued to dominate the U. S. import market until the start of World War II. Current U. S. production of Easter lily bulbs for the florist market began with a World War I soldier, Louis Houghton, who brought bulbs to the south coast of Oregon in 1919. Houghton freely distributed bulbs to his horticultural friends and neighbors.When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941, the Japanese source of bulbs was abruptly cut off. As a result, the value of lily bulbs sky-rocketed and many who were growing the lilies as a hobby decided to go into business. By 1945, there were about 1,200 growers producing bulbs up and down the Pacific coast, from Vancouver, Canada to Long Beach, California. And, believe it or not, right here in southeast Louisiana.The following information is quoted from Louisiana – A Guide to the State compiled by Workers of the Writer’s Program of the Work Projects Administration in the State of Louisiana, first printed in 1941.“Between Junior and Venice, interspersed by orange groves, are small farms devoted to a new and interesting industry – the cultivation of the Creole li... https://www.nola.com/homegarden/2019/04/this-is-how-the-easter-lily-became-the-holidays-flower.html
