When Jeff Leatham, the creative force behind the sumptuous floral decor at the Four Seasons George V Paris with design studios in Paris and New York, has a destination event in Santa Barbara, which wholesale florist does he turn to? Mayesh!
Here’s the rundown: The event was held the weekend of September 9, 2011 at the historic Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara, a beautiful Spanish Colonial built in 1927. The event design involved copious amounts of big headed white, green and purple hydrangea (sorry Madonna). Jeff’s staffing was drawn from both New York and the Santa Barbara area.
We sent 2 trucks filled to the brim with wholesale flowers. To give you an idea of what 2 trucks will hold, here are some large volume items that were on board:
- over 2500 stems White Hydrangeas
- 900 stems Purple Hydrangeas
- 1300 stems Yellow Mini Callas
- 500 stems White Phalaenopsis
- 120 boxes of Gardenias (each hold 3 blooms so=360 blooms)
- 1200 stems of Lavender Roses
- 900 stems Polo Roses
- 1600 stems Yellow Finess Roses
- 200 blooms Cattleya Orchids
Mayesh, in addition to providing the wholesale fresh cut flowers, was also involved in some of the prep work by labeling flowers for each aspect of the wedding. For instance, all the flowers used in the recipes for the personal bridal flowers were labeled “Personal Flowers.” Also, we provided the refrigeration and storage for the event. We had one Mayesh truck stay on site from Friday to events’ conclusion Sunday night (rehearsal dinner, wedding reception and after party) for refrigeration and storage.
Check out this awesome picture that Jeff took using his cell phone. I’m told we are going to get a glance at some of the professional pics sometime this week. Once I get them, I’ll post them on Facebook.
