Washington Park Arboretum
Greg's Celebration of Life
It was bittersweet as we helped celebrate the life of a former Groom and client at Wisteria Hall, located within the heart of Washington Park Arboretum. Working with his wife, we incorporated Greg’s love of the outdoors, fresh floral, his favorite colors of orange and blue and most importantly those who loved him most.
Greg was loving, generous, gentle and kind. He loved to treat his family to Hawaii’s sandy beaches and trips to the mountains for skiing, hiking, snow-shoeing and snowball fights. Gratitude was his compass. He had a deep passion and respect for nature and the outdoors. Greg connected with people in need. He was profoundly aware of the world and politics. He could quote any piece of Shakespearean work. He loved to sing and dance. A kid at heart, he enjoyed silly puns and jokes, waterslides, super-soakers, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (peanut butter cups too), and a game of Monkey in the Middle. He was an avid gardener and never far from a fresh bouquet of flowers.

PEDERSEN’S EVENT RENTALS
“Hi BreeAnn. I keep meaning to sit down and reply to your email and let you know how much I loved the celebration. It turned out so well. I really couldn’t have asked for it to go better. Your venue and your vendors were great, but someone had to have the ideas, put it all together to make it work and add all the special touches. I am so grateful for all you did and your expertise. I shudder at the thought of how it would have turned out if I’d planned it myself. Thank you so much for making a very sad event so nice.”
