7. Mimi from Into the Woods wrote me this week and shared this video from the wedding of Michaela and Joe at the Drake Hotel in Chicago. Into the Woods designed the flowers for this wedding and Mimi wrote: “Every time I see it I cry!” This got me thinking…about the relationships we develop with the couples we serve. We develop a love for them and want to do everything in our power to assure their wedding day is what they dreamed it would be. We love to see their joy. We want to see them realize their hopes for the future with the family they are creating by joining their lives together. There’s so much emotion wrapped up in the bouquets and arrangements we create for these couples. Mimi’s statement reminded me of the depth of connectedness we feel with our brides and grooms. And that’s the way it should be. That’s what gives our work meaning. So, watch the video if you have a few minutes and allow it to remind you of what makes this career fulfilling.
