Maddie and Henry were married in August at St Thomas More Catholic Church in SW Portland with a reception following at Waverley Country Club.
One of the really fun parts of having been a wedding florist for awhile is when we get to provide florals for multiple family members’ weddings. Maddie and Henry were the third Murphy family wedding we worked on in less than a year and I absolutely love the creative ease which we’re able to work with at this point. That said, pulling off a wedding in 2020 was far from easy and like so many other couples Maddie and Henry (and their families) went from plan a to plan b to plan c to comply with covid regulations and to give their guests a safe, warm, celebration. Fortunately we were able to continue on with a beautiful ceremony at St Thomas More which is a church with deep ties to Henry’s family. Not only did Henry and his siblings attend grammar school there but his grandfather donated all of the lumber when it was built in 1939. A lighthearted and intimate reception on the lawn at Waverley Country Club followed for the couple’s immediate families and closest friends. Lush, feminine florals added elegance to the setting and greenery wrapped cafe lights kept the party going after a beautiful sunset.
