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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Lauren and Tom


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. Planned by Cinda Hoege of White Birch Events, the event exuded sophistication and personal charm. The color scheme of navy blue, white, and gold was complemented with florals in white, blush, fuschia, and green.

The bride carried a simple and full bouquet of cream florals, with pops of color. Peonies, white tulips with raspberry edging, peach garden roses, anemones, camellia leaves, and umbrella ferns were tied together with an ivory ribbon and cascading bow.


Lauren’s bridesmaids wore long navy dresses and carried bouquets similar to the bride’s, though smaller in scale. The groomsmen wore boutonnieres of “Hot Majolica” spray roses, tied with a thin champagne ribbon. The groom’s boutonniere was unique, composed of a raspberry peony bud and seeded eucalyptus.



For the ceremony, we placed a lush green garland of salal and silver dollar eucalyptus down the length of the aisle. Woven in and out of the garland were our large and small Tourterelle lanterns.


Table arrangements for the reception consisted of cream hydrangea, “combo” roses, stock, champagne lisianthus, and raspberry spray roses. Gold-leafed cube containers were used to complement the table settings, and mercury glass votives added a romantic lighting to the room.


At the head table, a long garland runner was placed down the length of the table, and interspersed were mercury votives and the bridesmaids’ bouquets. Our gold candelabras were also used for centerpieces.

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.

Florals in pinks, oranges, and autumnal tones complimented the gorgeous fall vista of the vineyard and the navy blue accents of the bridal party. We created two altar arrangements composed of hydrangeas, lilies, roses, berries, and ferns. Six hobnail vases of dahlias and roses were also hung from chairs as aisle markers.
