We were a bit of a difficult client, actually, since we came to Judy in the winter asking for spring-like looks (the spring magazine is photographed in December). That oddball request is not too far a cry from the bride who has a wedding in one season and is bent on a reception filled with flowers that bloom during another season altogether. Disconnects like those bring about a few problems—the biggest of which is money. Judy says though it’s possible get flowers out of season, they are more expensive, and availability isn’t guaranteed.
