An elegant and romantic wedding with the Inn at Willow Grove as the backdrop, Elizabeth and Dillon’s day was nothing short of breathtaking. A traditional and vintage aesthetic was accomplished with our floral designs and decor selections. A color palette of blush, creams, and greens with gold accents enhanced the classic motif.

Elizabeth’s bouquet was our main focus. We wanted it to stand out in allure, while maintaining the theme of traditional elegance. A soft and loose mix of pink “O’Harra” garden roses, creamy majolica spray roses, green hydrangea, ranunculus, and cream and blush peonies were arranged with greenery of jasmine vine, dusty miller, and camellia leaf. Tied in an ivory ribbon, the florals enhanced the natural beauty and grace of the bride.

Sophie and MJ

Sophie and MJ were married at Wintergreen Resort, overlooking the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains. Bright and saturated colors of fuchsia, pink, blue, navy, and red complemented the summer season. The wedding, though classic and elegant, kept things unique and fresh with interesting floral design.

Sophie’s asymmetric bouquet was breathtaking. Vibrant colors, lush florals, and cascading greenery made for a true statement piece. Orchids, purple clematis, pink and purple roses, lisianthus, dark purple hydrangea, and astrantia were tied together with fuchsia and blue ribbon.

Sophie’s bridesmaids wore dresses of navy and carried bouquets that complemented the color scheme of the wedding. Light purple hydrangea and cream, pale pink, and fuchsia roses were tied with bright pink ribbon.

For the reception, we created low, lush arrangements in rich colors of purple, red, and pink. The centerpieces were arranged in glass cylinders, with the florals and greenery adding texture and volume.

It was a pleasure to create the florals for Sophie and MJ’s wedding, and we wish the couple the best in their future together. Thank you to the amazing Allegra’s Studio for these stunning images, and all of the other amazing vendors involved.

Neena and Stewart

On a gorgeous day in May, Neena and Stewart were married on the picturesque grounds of Castle Hill Cider. The vineyard style wedding was a classic and romantic affair, with a color scheme of light blue, grey, blush, lavender, and mint. Seasonal flowers of peonies, ranunculus, tulips, and hydrangeas were used throughout, from personal flowers to the reception.

Neena carried a striking, full bouquet. Cream peonies, David Austin roses, blush ranunculus, ivory spray roses, and parrot tulips were arranged with greenery of seeded eucalyptus and dusty miller. A touch of blue, in the form of tweedia, added a unique detail to the garden style bouquet.

Neena’s bridesmaids wore grey dresses and carried delicate bouquets in blush and pink. Peonies, ranunculus, astrantia, and greenery were tied with a blush satin ribbon. The groom and groomsmen wore complementing boutonnieres.

The ceremony was held within a lovely grove of trees. Luxurious drifts of white petals were placed at the base of the trees and down the aisle. Magical piles of white hydrangea, lisianthus, and greenery climbed the base of the trunks of the two Lindens that framed the altar. Two stunning arrangements of white and ivory florals and delicate greenery were thoughtfully planted in romantic urns.

For the reception, more stunning focal pieces were created. To complement the classic, vintage china and the venue, we suspended two antique orchard ladders over the head table. Styled and wrapped with grape vine, hydrangea, tulips, jasmine vine, ferns, roses, moss, and ivy, the ladders served as a breathtaking centerpiece. Edison lightbulbs dangled from the ladders to create a romantic glow in the lavender ambience.

Groupings of small arrangements in green, lavender, and cream were placed down the tables among birch slabs, moss, and gold votives, creating an eclectic and stunning tablescape.

We absolutely loved creating the floral statement pieces for this wedding, and we wish the lovely couple all the best in their future together. Thank you to all of the amazing vendors (particularly the talented Allegra’s Studio for these stunning photos!) who made this day so spectacular!

Ley and Andrew were married on a beautiful (and warm!) summer day in June. Planned by Dickie Morris at Just a Little Ditty, and photographed by Aaron Watson Photography, this wedding exuded classic elegance with personal flair. A vibrant color scheme of navy blue, rose quartz, champagne, and blush was incorporated in every detail, including the florals!

Ley’s bridal bouquet featured soft blue hydrangeas, blush and cream roses, “Majolica” spray roses, sweet pea, lisianthus, and pink astrantia. We added greenery in the form of scented geranium leaves and umbrella ferns for volume. The stems were tied in a satin ivory ribbon and pinned with a sentimental locket.

Ley’s bridesmaids carried similar, but unique bouquets. To add a touch of “gold,” we incorporated deep yellow roses to the blue hydrangea, blush astrantia, and sweet pea. For more differentiation, we included dusty miller and blush hypericum berries. The bridesmaid’s bouquets were tied in a navy satin ribbon.

AaronWatsonPhotography190Ley and Andrew’s ceremony took place at the breathtaking Grace Episcopal Church. Aisle markers of blue hydrangea, cream roses, and cascading greenery were placed on pews, while two large urns of blush and cream florals framed the altar. Cream and blush rose petals were scattered down the aisle by an adorable flower girl prior to Ley’s entrance.

The wedding party moved to Keswick Hall for the reception. A cocktail hour was held outside on the patio, where we placed small, sweet arrangements in pinks and blushes. For the indoor dinner reception, we created low and tall table arrangements of blues and creams, with hints of rose quartz.

Lauren and Tom were married on a gorgeous spring day in May. The event was held in Trump Winery’s Grand Hall, with the ceremony taking place outside overlooking the venue’s stunning grounds.
