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.

Maggie and James’s early spring wedding at Pippin Hill was absolutely breathtaking, and an amazing kick-off to the busy wedding season. The celebration and the stunning photographs by Katelyn James Photography were recently published on the Grey Likes Weddings blog (linked here)! Below we have shared some more information on the florals and design for the event.

The bride carried a full, romantic bouquet of soft pinks and blush. Our flower choices were David Austin roses, cream hydrangea, white spray roses, ranunculus, and anemones. Delicate greenery of seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, and fern was added for texture and interest. The stems were wrapped with cream satin ribbon and pinned with pearls.

Our Tourterelle birch bark arbor was used for the altar. We embellished it with cream hydrangea, blush roses, jasmine vine, stock, camellia leaf and magnolia branches. Hanging glass mason jars filled with hydrangea, roses, stock, ivy, and camellia were used as aisle markers.

For the reception, the focal point was a suspended ladder wrapped in greenery, branches, and florals. This central farm table featured a garland runner with gold mercury glass votives scattered along it. Lush arrangements of pinks, creams, and yellows were the centerpieces for the guest tables.

Amy and Michael

Amy and Michael were married on a gorgeous spring day at Keswick Hall. Their April nuptials consisted of a small, traditional ceremony characterized by stories of love and sentiment. A color palette of ivory and cream and soft, romantic florals created an atmosphere of classic elegance. The stunning photographs by Alisandra Photography captured the details of the day in glowing light.

The bride was stunning in an ivory lace dress. To complement her gown, we created a bouquet of white and cream hydrangea, garden roses, spray roses, ranunculus, freesia, and astrantia. Greenery in the form of variegated pittosporum and seeded eucalyptus added texture and variety. The bouquet was tied in a satin ribbon and pinned with pearls.

The other members of the wedding party carried and wore flowers in ivory and white as well. The groom and adorable ring bearer sported boutonnieres of freesia, spray roses, dusty miller, and silver brunia berries. The lovely junior bridesmaid held a bouquet composed of flowers to match the bride’s.

The ceremony took place on Keswick’s back terrace, overlooking the grounds. The altar was framed with our classic round urns on ivory plinths. Lush and elegant arrangements of hydrangea, cream roses, lilies, stock, and tulips flowed from the urns. The aisle was marked with simple swags of cream roses and seeded eucalyptus, tied with an ivory ribbon.

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.

Kristen and Kevin

Kristen and Kevin’s wedding was a gorgeous occasion that was infused with a casual feel, but a sophisticated style. The lovely pair was married on October 10, 2015 at Verulam Farm. The location complemented and enhanced the theme of Southern elegance with a rustic charm. The wedding was planned by Verulam’s very talented Kennon Ibbeken and photographed by the exceptional William Walker Photography.

Kristen & Kevin were married at Verulam Farm in Charlottesville, VA on October 10, 2015

Kristen was the epitome of bridal elegance. She wore a champagne colored gown, and carried a unique and romantic bouquet of succulents, white freesia, ranunculus, hydrangea, and white garden roses. Seeded eucalyptus, rosemary, silver brunia berries, and privet berries added texture and volume. The bouquet was tied together with a cream satin ribbon and pinned with a line of seed pearls. The bride added a personal touch to her ensemble with colorful cowboy boots.

The ceremony was held in the field of Verulam, facing the mountains, with the backdrop of the main house. Our birch arch was used for the altar. Organically arranged magnolia leaf, hydrangea, and roses cascaded from the arch and framed the altar. Clear jars of blue, white, and green florals dangled from shepherd’s hooks along the aisle. The highlights of the ceremony were the adorable flower girls, wearing white dresses and cowboy boots. Of course, the pure happiness on the bride and groom’s faces could not be matched.

The Cider Barn on the property housed the reception. The florals were loose and elegant, with a “from the garden” feel. Birch and wood accents, along with lanterns and mason jars, completed the decor. The head table, a vintage farm table, was framed by a garland of greenery. Two low, rustic iron troughs were filled with moss and placed on the table. Votives were nestled in the moss running down the length of the trough, adding a romantic feel. Small floral arrangements in mixed, delicate, and vintage vases were placed on each table. The reception was catered by A Pimento, and the delicious cake was created by Cakes by Rachel.

Elopement Anniversary

Helen and Adam celebrated the first anniversary of their elopement last spring. They married in New Zealand, Adam’s homeland, without many of the traditional wedding staples. So, they took the opportunity to celebrate and document their union in Virginia, one year later.

For the shoot, we provided a unique statement piece for Helen. A floral necklace, composed of intertwining white and fuchsia blooms and ivy, gave the bride a memorable accessory for the celebration of her special day.

Harriet and Stephen

Harriet and Stephen were married on a beautiful May 2015 evening at Ash Lawn-Highland. The wedding’s inspiration was a simple, rustic elegance with a Scottish countryside feel. The diverse color palette of amethyst, lavender, teal, heather purple, yellow, blue, and green was inspired by the “Isle of Skye” kilt.

harriet01

The groomsmen and groom wore the “Isle of Skye” kilts to honor the groom’s Scottish heritage. The boutonnieres reflected the color palette of the kilts, with blue thistle and green hypericum, tied with a thin sage velvet ribbon. The groom’s boutonniere (below) included the thistle, along with heather, tied together with an ivory ribbon.

The ceremony took place on the grounds of Ash Lawn-Highland, overlooking the mountains. The altar was marked by two large arrangements, including green hydrangea, thistle, heather, and other richly colored additions. Aisle markers of blue hydrangea, heather, and cream roses also added color to the ceremony.

The tartan made its way into the reception as well, draped across the chairs of the bride and groom. The reception flowers thus maintained the strong color palette and were complemented by the glow of mercury glass votives.

The bride’s bouquet was rustic and rich. A blue, green base of thistle, hydrangea, dusty miller, and camellia leaf added texture. “Majolica” spray roses, green roses, and heather provided additional color. For a more unique flair, we also added succulents.
