For Beth Zemetis, the owner and lead floral designer of Blush Floral Design Studio in Madison, CT, including her favorite flower—cafe au lait dahlias—was a must. "The season is fairly short, so I basically chose our wedding date based around this flower!" says Beth. The bloom was ubiquitous throughout the midsummer affair and was featured prominently in her bouquet, the ceremony arrangements, the centerpieces, and was even interpreted in sugar on the wedding cake. How did Beth pull off designing her own wedding flowers? The floral design was a collaboration between Beth and Hana Floral Design. "I wrote the 'recipes,' and their staff made my vision come to life," says Beth.
