Gabriele – Floral Designer
It’s all about the details with floral designer, Gabriele. “Beautiful flower arrangements and stunning table designs are the result of my complete devotion to thousands of intricate details,” says Gabriele. A professional floral designer since 1992, Gabriele, whose inspired florals have been featured in both Grace Ormonde Marriage and Southern New England Weddings, is also a fine artist whose oils have won awards throughout New England. It’s a combination that makes her superb at interpreting the artful influence flowers can have on your wedding day, whether via graceful blooming arches, glorious tented environments or a truly inspired color scheme for a one-of-a-kind bridal bouquet. A devotee of lush and lovely romantic blooms like old-fashioned roses, peonies and hydrangeas, she keeps things current via several cottage-style gardens of her own on the grounds of her early 20th-century estate.
“Gabriele’s eye for color and texture is truly a gift,” says Corrine Crocker-Luby. “I’ve been graced with the opportunity to have worked with her for many years, and yet her creative designs never cease to amaze me. I am simply thrilled to have Gabriele as a key member of my team.”
Jeff – Floral Designer
A floral designer for more than 30 years with a degree in agriculture and natural resources, Jeff loves all aspects of weddings. “I love the chance to design and complement different venues,” says Jeff. “I enjoy working with people with various styles and personalities. I want each bride’s flowers to be a reflection of everything she wants, so I listen attentively: I want to learn what my clients like.” What does Jeff do with the information he learns? Quite simply: Work magic. “My style is definitely not typical,” says Jeff. “It’s more of an artistic look; the more unusual the better. If an arrangement I create gets people talking, if it brings them back for a second look, then I know it’s a success.”
Jeff’s “eye for detail, trend-setting designs, and unique ability to combine both truly sets him apart,” says Corrine.
