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.

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.

Brigid and Richard

Classic Hollywood glamour infused with natural enchantment was the inspiration for Brigid and Richard’s October wedding. We played off the lush foliage and lovely backdrop of the Clifton Inn to create the illusion of a luxurious garden party in a magical forest. An elegant, soft mix of florals in ivory and blue and textured greenery was used by our team to reflect the theme.

The stunning bride wore a Lela Rose gown and epitomized old Hollywood charm. We created an understated, loose, and flowing bouquet. Ivory florals in the form of David Austin garden roses, Majolica spray roses, and cream lisianthus were accented with blue tweedia and periwinkle hydrangea. To continue the theme, there was a heavy play on greenery in the bouquet. We chose to add Umbrella fern, jasmine vine, Italian ruskus, and Dusty Miller. The flowers were tied with a slate grey ribbon and pinned with a line of seed pearls.

For the reception, garland and magnolia branches, intertwined with twinkle lights, climbed the central poles of the tent. These organic arrangements sprouted from a base of fern, camellia leaf, and magnolia leaf. The tent poles thus disappeared and became the desired setting of a magical forest.

The head table, placed in the center of the tent, was the focal point. A delicate and lovely green garland of camellia leaf, seeded eucalyptus, and salal ran down the length of the table and spilled out over the center, in front of the bride and groom’s seats. Nestled in the garland, we placed a mix of vintage French glass vases in different heights and sizes. These contained loose arrangements of garden roses, lisianthus, antiqued hydrangeas, ferns, and other greenery. Poured glass votives were also scattered throughout the tables to enhance the magical feeling.

Melanie and Doug

Melanie and Doug had an intimate winter wedding in the Jefferson Room at Farmington Country Club. An elegant and understated evening, the reception room had a soft ambience with colors and textures that were rich and reflective of the season. Colors of sage green, deep burgundy, and creams were accented with warm gold tones.

On the long dinner table, loose floral centerpieces with roses, hydrangea, astilbe, ranunculus, and golden preserved oak leaves sat upon tall, gold candelabras. At the center of the table, we placed a low, elongated arrangement in a brushed gold container. Gold mercury votive candles were included to add some sparkle.

Images from this beautiful, winter celebration can be seen below, or on our Weddings page. Thank you to Jennifer Byrne Photography  for sharing.

The bride’s bouquet was soft and fulsome in colors of pink and purple. Cascading greenery, orchids, dendrobiums, calla lilies, spray roses, camellia leaves, hydrangeas, and freesia came together to create a textured and asymmetric composition. The bouquet was tied with a purple satin ribbon and pinned with a line of pearls.

Madison and Scott

In October of this past year, we had the honor of working with Madison and Scott to add vibrant florals and exquisite decor to their autumnal nuptials. The two were married at St. Paul’s Memorial Church near the University of Virginia Corner, and their reception was held in the gorgeous Verulam Farm‘s Cider Barn. The event was photographed by the talented Jen Fariello Photography. Classic and vintage elements combined with loose, “from the garden” florals to create a feeling of southern elegance with rustic charm.

Rain came on the wedding day, but it did not dampen the spirits of the bride and her wedding party. All smiles, Madison and her bridesmaids posed for pictures in their fall-colored Hunter boots and patterned umbrellas.

HighlightWEB-9HighlightWEB-21

The bride’s bouquet was romantic and natural. Cream and white garden roses, dahlias, freesia, and hydrangea served as the base. Colors of plum, peach, mint, and orange were integrated with the addition of ranunculus, garden roses, silver brunia berries, and dusty miller. The bouquet was tied with a cream satin ribbon and pinned with a line of seed pearls.

HighlightWEB-16

The intimate ceremony was touching and full of laughter. The adorable flower girls, crowned with twisting stems of heather, wax flower, and spray roses, prefaced the joy and excitement of the ceremony as they walked down the aisle. The altar was framed by two arrangements in classic urns. Hydrangea, white roses, and delphinium added color and delicacy, while magnolia branches and fern added texture and volume.

HighlightWEB-31

For the reception, tables were designed to reflect the charm of the Verulam Cider Barn. A vintage collection of vessels and gold mercury votives were scattered down the length of the long farm tables. Loose and elegant arrangements of hydrangea, ferns, roses, astrantia and other elements in colors of oranges, peaches, and creams were arranged in wooden boxes. Some of the tables also had a garland runner of salal and seeded eucalyptus, interspersed with hydrangea to add color.

The most interesting and unique element of the reception was the hanging wagon wheel chandelier. We embellished the wheel with grapevine, seeded eucalyptus, moss, and hydrangea and hung tear drop votive candles to add interest. It was a beautiful and charming accessory to the dance floor!

Madison and Scott’s wedding was full of happiness and joy. The bride exuded radiance on the dreary day, and the couple’s love warmed all who attended. It was a wonderful experience for us to be a part of such an eventful day. All of our best to Madison and Scott!
