The best thing about growing in any profession is the clarity that comes with time, experience, and endless hours of trial and error.

Flowerfield in Saint James, NY on Long Island is a gorgeous place for a wedding. Not only are the grounds amazing (bridge over a pond, swans, vineyard, apple orchard, etc.) but the interior reception area is surrounded with live trees, a huge koi pond with a bridge over it, and live plants surrounding the area planted directly into the ground. Very cool. Congratulations to Tony and Jess!
