Hannah + Cameron
Like many couples this year, Hannah and Cameron Bass had to downsize their wedding. It was originally a 200 person event but ended up being an intimate celebration of love with 15 of their closest family and friends.
They got married in the Starr Gennet Building in Richmond, Indiana. This building is an abandoned record factory that is now owned by the city. “We had fun DIYing the whole space and making it our own. Flowers brought the space together, we had a carpet from our home brought out, strung all the twinkle lights - space was really transformed and magical in all of this!” said Hannah.

The couple had to downsize about a week before the wedding, which lead to some last-minute changes to the vendor list. “Because of changing the week before, we ended up having to cancel most of our vendors, so the event was catered by chipotle - which was another fun detail,” said Hannah.
This gorgeous October wedding featured a lot of really fun things for guests. Each of them went home with a floral arrangement from this special day. Because of the last-minute changes, some flexibility was necessary with the flowers. “Because of the short change of plans I wasn't able to execute the full vision I wanted with some of the flower displays, but my family came through and made up several dozen floor pieces to line the aisle - which turned out amazing!”
Hannah used Agonis, Nadina, Italian Ruscus, and Pampas grass to fill out her arrangements. She also had Burgendy Scabiosa, Copper Cushion Flowers, and Peach Ranunculus. Overall her floral designs turned out fantastic. When you love someone, the things that were a big deal, (like friggin Covid downsizing your wedding) are small compared to how you feel about your person. Hannah and Cameron are a great example of letting love be the center of your event, instead of focusing on what isn’t there.
