Lydia credits Blair Waldorf of “Gossip Girl” fame for her obsession with peonies, and imagines she’ll have a modern, monochromatic outdoor wedding one day. Succulents will be in the mix somehow, but she says she’ll leave the how to a wedding planner. “There’s no way I could wrap my head around planning an entire wedding,” she says.
And while Lydia is already an indispensable member of the Arkansas Bride team, she says in another life she’d work in the culinary world. “I think it would be so fun to be a chef or a baker and own my own shop.”
