Alex and Nick

In September of 2016, Alex and Nick were married at Trump Winery on a classically beautiful Charlottesville day. Planned by Beverly Wakefield at A Grand Affair, the day was infused with elegantly rustic details fitting the vineyard style wedding. A soft color palette of pink, coral, mint, green, and cream was accented with touches of gold.

Wearing a traditional lace A-line dress, Alex epitomized the classically beautiful bride. We created a voluminous, round and romantic bouquet of ivory and cream with touches of blush and accents of soft green. Garden roses, hydrangea, dahlias, dusty miller, and variegated pittosporum made a perfect composition. The bouquet was tied in ivory satin with a tasteful gold overlay ribbon and pinned with Pearls. To add a personal touch, we tied a locket of Alex’s into the bouquet ribbon.

Alex’s bridesmaids also wore lace gowns in a blush pink. We created bouquets that were similar in composition to Alex’s, but smaller in scale and with a greater emphasis on the blush and green coloring.

For the groom, we created a boutonniere to reflect the design of the bridal bouquet. A delicate dahlia bud was complemented by seeded eucalyptus and blush astrantia buds. Tied in thin gold ribbon, the boutonniere was also detailed with a gold locket. The groomsmen, wearing rose gold bow ties and tan suits, donned boutonnieres of blush spray roses and dusty miller.

The ceremony took place in the Trump Winery chapel. At the front of the church, we placed a cluster of pillar candles of varying heights on each side. A soft touch of greens was nestled in-between the candles. On the railings, a soft garland of seeded eucalyptus and Italian ruskus was draped to frame the altar. Overall, the design created a light and romantic feel in the light-filled chapel.

The reception in the Grand Ballroom featured a rectangular farm table for the wedding party, draped with a 24 foot garland. The garland was composed of camellia leaf and seeded eucalyptus, with a punch of color provided by blooms of dahlias, hydrangea, and spray roses. The round guest tables had centerpieces of large, vintage lanterns. Each lantern was encircled with a wreath of greens, floral blooms, and foliage.

Elegant and classic, we were so pleased with our designs for Alex and Nick’s wedding. Thank you to all of the vendors who helped make this day so special. We would particularly like to thank Jason Keefer Photography for capturing our work so beautifully. We wish Nick and Alex all the best in their future together!

Ley and Andrew


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.

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.

To add more interest to the tall arrangements, we filled the glass vases with blush silk rose petals.


The head table was romantically lit with sparkling gold votives placed among a lush, green garland. The bridesmaids’ and bride’s bouquets were used as centerpieces for the table.


It was such a pleasure to contribute to this beautiful wedding celebrating Ley and Andrew’s love and commitment. Thank you to all of the amazing vendors that made this day possible, and we wish the lovely couple nothing but the best for the future!
