Guest Blogger: Nancy Liu Chin

I'm thrilled to announce our guest blogger for this Friday before BLACK FRIDAY! It's the one and only Nancy Liu Chin, the wonderfully multi-talented floral designer from San Fran! We've emailed back and forth, and I was blown away by the beauty of her work. Even though I'm East Coast, and she's West Coast, that hasn't stopped us from forming a blogging bond. Here she is on ATL for her debut post featuring a wedding she did not too long ago, and all you lucky ATL readers get to view this wedding here first! I can't wait to share more of Nancy's dreamy work and deliciously beautiful inspiration boards, so keep checking back!

Not long ago, I had the good fortune to help shape and create a wedding for a fetching young couple, Robert and Stella of San Francisco. Our down to earth bride and groom came to my San Francisco design studio. With our heads together, we all enthusiastically concluded that a wedding should be momentous, personable, and a bit out of the ordinary. Having produced hundreds of events, I understood the need to create something from the heart. Side by side, we brainstormed several concepts and ideas and frequently revisited the ideas just to make sure that we were still delighted with them. The result is the pleasingly adorable and touchingly sweet soulful wedding which blended artistic details with classic garden elements(and a few birds!). Enjoy this summer wedding that took place at the architectural gardens of Cornerstone in Napa, California. Photographs courtesy of Robert and Stella Weinberg.
