Sherry not only wanted you to see the beauty of the flowers, but to also feel the warmth that they brought to your life and to the lives of others. Whether it was a fresh vase, pall, spray, basket, or one of her many unique wedding designs, Sherry wanted each design to live in your minds, hearts, and thoughts forever.
