It isn’t a very well kept secret that lilacs are Jess’ favorite. She’s even been heard to say “If I had to choose between lilacs and chocolate, I would choose lilacs.”
Lilacs are fleeting and delicate, they don’t hold up well when not in water. The old saying “gather ye rosebuds while ye may” should really probably be updated to reflect the urgency of today’s world with “gather ye lilacs while ye may.”
Having said that, we gathered these lilacs, violets, bleeding hearts and lily of the valley from the garden and designed a very springy posy for you to enjoy. I bet you can imagine the fragrance!
If you want lilacs to be a part of your wedding, plan on setting your date for early May. If you miss their bloom locally, you’ll have to wait a year.
We still have a few dates available in 2017. We’d love to hear from you to schedule a meeting to talk about your wedding plans. The best way to reach us quickly is via email @ firstname.lastname@example.org
With a fresh coating of snow on the ground near Raymond Pond, it really is starting to feel like the holiday season. We are giving thanks for being able to work with such beautiful things and people.
There has been a bit of confusion about what we do. We don’t do retail any longer, but we are glad to accept your orders for holiday arrangements. We do require at least a week’s notice because we don’t keep flowers in stock any longer, so please give us a call at 207-655-5020 or email at email@example.com and we can create something special for you, a client, family or friends.
If you had to invent a perfect Maine summer day, and the perfect place for a Maine summer wedding, you might have imagined the spot on Raymond Pond, in Raymond, Maine where Katie and Ciaran tied the knot.
Using local flowers and foliage was important to the couple so on the Wednesday before the wedding Jess headed over to the Hancock Family Farm in Casco and cut zinnias, statice, sunflowers, ageratum, celosia and gomphrena. The rudbeckia came from the Fay garden, as did the hosta and sedum for the boutonnieres.
Yup, pretty much perfect!
We here at Maine Lakes Wedding and Event Florist have created our share of patriotic themed arrangements. Red, white and blue can be such a fun color scheme to work with, especially in the summer! White is an easy one…roses, dahlias, mums, queen Anne’s lace, baby’s breath. Red can be a harder color to find the right style flower for a summer wedding…Jess loves using bee balm, mini carnations, gerbera daisies, and gypsy dianthus. Blue is the hardest color to find in flowers, but delphimium and hydrangeas are usually a good bet.
What ever you do to celebrate our great country’s birthday, make it lovely, too!
Would you like us to create a corsage and boutonniere for the prom on the weekend of May 14? We will accept reservations via phone 655-5020, you should leave a message with your contact information, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The cut off date for accepting orders will be May 5. Prom is so fun we just couldn’t sit this one out!
Welcome to Maine Lakes Wedding and Event Florist! Raymond Village Florist has had a name change.

Our minimum order is $100 and we do ask for at least a week’s notice, as we no longer carry flowers in the studio on a day to day basis.
