In late June, Mary Boyce and John celebrated their love for each other in Charlottesville. The ceremony took place at Christ Episcopal Church, and the reception at Farmington Country Club. The inspiration for the wedding was southern elegance, which the bride truly exuded.
The color scheme for the flowers was creams, whites, and greens, with a touch of blue to coordinate with the Bridesmaids’ dresses. The style for the bouquets was a loose, elegant “from the garden” feel. We also incorporated the brides favorite flowers: garden roses, peonies, and hydrangea.
The bride’s bouquet was full and white, with hints of green and cream. It was composed of white peonies, white and cream garden roses, white hydrangea, dusty miller, white double lisianthus, and white spray roses with just a touch of greens and seeded eucalyptus. The stems were tied with a cream satin ribbon, bound with a line of seed pearls. For a personal touch, the bride added the lace from her mother’s bouquet.
It was a beautiful day to celebrate this couple, and we were so pleased to contribute to its elegance. Congratulations to Mary Boyce and John!

In April, we had the pleasure of being a part of Whitney and Hunter’s wedding day. The day was a rainy one, but the weather could not dampen the spirits of this amazing wedding party and their families and friends in attendance.
Using the lovely backdrop of The Clifton Inn as inspiration, the wedding was infused with a sophisticated, elegant mix of florals with a soft, fulsome, and romantic feel. Colors of ivory and blush were chosen to set off the bridal party and the charm of the inn.
The bride wore an ivory gown and carried a fulsome and compact bouquet of “Alabaster” and “Patience” David Austin garden roses, “Solange” and “Bowl of Cream” peonies, “Majolica” spray roses, blush ranunculus, cream lisianthus, umbrella fern, and jasmine vine with a tinge of blush flowers. The bouquet was tied with an vintage, French silk ivory ribbon and pinned with a line of seed pearls.
The ceremony was defined by an arch created with cherry blossom branches extending from a bed of hydrangea, tulips, and elegant greenery. A mix of cut glass vases and containers of mixed shapes and sizes were used for the reception tables to create an effortless feel of a luxurious garden party. At each setting, there was a rolled galax leaf with lambs ear and a lavender stem tied together with jute twine. A long garland weaved its way along the long central table.

In early May, we had the pleasure of working with Lindsay and Johnny from Chicago. Their wedding was at Keswick Hall, the photographer was Jen Fariello and all of the wedding details were perfectly executed.
Lindsay was looking for a sophisticated, elegant mix with a soft and fulsome romantic feel. Her colors were spearmint with coral accents, creams, soft pinks and shades of cool green. The table flowers were in an eclectic mix of vintage silver bowls and containers collected by Tourterelle over the years. Mercury candlelight completed the look.
The bridal bouquet was creams, peaches, corals and mint accents. “Juliet” and “Patience” roses, “Ilse” spray rose, White/cream peonies, “Coral Charm” peonies, sweet pea, white freesia, white ranunculus, lisianthus, and white astrantia with scented geranium and dusty miller. Tied in a ivory satin ribbon pinned with pearls.
