Kim and Jason

Kim and Jason were married on a lovely fall day at the scenic Early Mountain Vineyard. CInda Hoege of White Birch Events planned the gorgeous event, and William Walker Photography captured the day spectacularly. The day way infused with rustic elegance, and the floral design was greatly unique in its vibrant and varying colors.

The stunning bride carried a classic and deconstructed bouquet with base colors of cream, ivory, and green. Green hydrangea, ivory garden roses and spray roses, cream lisianthus, camellia leaf, seeded eucalyptus, and fern were accented with pops of color. Touches of red gomphrena, orange Asclepius, and purple lavender added an unexpected twist to the classic bouquet.

The groom wore a navy suit with a subtle purple tie. To complement his attire and the wedding’ a color scheme, we designed a boutonniere consisting of a peach dahlia bud, dusty miller, blush astrantia, and lavender. It was tied in an ivory ribbon to match the bridal bouquet.

The ceremony took place on the grounds of Early Mountaine, overlooking the expansive and beautifully landscaped grounds. To frame the entrance to the ceremony, we designed two arrangements of green, cream, and orange. Each was placed atop vineyard wine barrels.

The altar arbor was wrapped in only greens of eucalyptus, salal, magnolia, and camellia in order to create a charming backdrop to the ceremony.

Lindsey and Steven

Lindsey and Steven were married at Trump Winery on a gorgeous September day. The scenic grounds provided a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony, and the vineyard’s barn housed the reception. Simple rustic elegance infused with a romantic feel informed our design. Colors of blue and buttery yellow with accents of ivory, cream, and green were used to reflect the season and the design inspiration.

Lindsey carried a traditional and full bouquet of cream with pops of bright yellow. Yellow calla lilies, cream roses, cream spray roses, and umbrella fern created delicate volume. Touches of blue were added with the addition of tweedia. The bouquet was wrapped in ivory satin ribbon and pinned with pearls.

For the bridesmaids, we created full bouquets similar to Lindsey’s, but brighter in color. Yellow florals were complemented with pops of cream and blue. Yellow calla lilies, pale yellow roses, cream spray roses, blue delphinium, and blue tweedia were arranged and wrapped in navy ribbon to complement the bridesmaids’ dresses.

For the groom, we created a boutonniere with a small yellow calla lily and touch of fern to reflect the composition of the bride’s bouquet.  The groomsmen’s boutonnieres were differentiated with pale yellow roses and fern, wrapped in a thin, navy ribbon.

The ceremony setting was absolutely stunning. Held outside by the willow tree, the ceremony was decorated simply and elegantly. To mark the entrance to the space, we created two low and abundant arrangements to spill over rustic wine barrels. Hydrangea, asparagus fern, ivy, yellow garden roses, blue stock, and yellow and cream dahlias were used to create natural and colorful designs. A carpet of yellow rose petals marked the aisle.

After the outdoor ceremony, the reception moved to the Trump Winery Barn. At the escort card table, we placed a stunning cream arrangement with statement-making lilies and full garden roses to welcome guests.

The color scheme of blue, yellow, and cream was continued for the reception to brighten the rustic setting. Bridesmaids’ bouquets were repurposed for guest table centerpieces. To add more interest and detail, we placed a cloud of blue hydrangea at the base of the glass cylinders, and scattered gold vintage mercury glass votives about the table.

We loved the vibrancy of Lindsey and Steven’s wedding flowers and were so happy to be a part of this lovely couple’s special day! We wish Lindsey and Steven all the best in their future together. Thank you to Trump Winery for the gorgeous scenery and event planning, and Kait Winston Photography for the spectacular images of our work!

Christian and Jesse

Fall weddings in the mountains of Virginia are always picturesque, but Christian and Jesse’s autumn nuptials at King Family Vineyards was beyond stunning! Nikki Santerre Photography brilliantly captured the misty mountains and colorful details of this wedding. Some of our favorite images were those taken on film, enhancing the wedding’s rustic charm.

Christian wore a lovely, flowing dress with lace detail. To complement her soft and romantic style, we created a loose, unconstructed bouquet of dusty blue, blush pink, and peach. Pee Gee hydrangea, Majolica spray roses, seeded eucalyptus, dahlias, Quick Sand roses, and White Calcynia heather were arranged and tied together with a light sliver burlap ribbon. Wheat stalks were incorporated for a unique and natural texture.

Christian’s lovely bridesmaids wore gradients of blue, which was the perfect backdrop for bouquets of green, peach, and blush. Dimension was created with a collection of feathered white heather, seeded eucalyptus, and wheat stalks. Hydrangea, dahlias, and peach spray roses added a punch of color, while a natural muslin ribbon gave the bouquet a finishing touch.

The boutonnieres also included wheat in the composition, maintaining a cohesive theme in the floral design. A vibrant peach dahlia bud was reserved for Jesse’s boutonniere, while the groomsmen sported peachy pink spray roses on their lapels.

The ceremony details were created to enhance the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, while also reinforcing the romance and simple sophistication of the wedding. On the aisles, we placed birch pedestals topped with beds of moss. Sweet arrangements in blue, vintage Mason jars sat upon each cylinder. Quotes on love, carved onto wooden medallions, added a personal and sweet detail to the aisle markers.

Christian and Jesse said “I do” under a statement-making altarpiece. Blue and green hydrangea intertwined with deep green magnolia branches, garden roses, fall grasses, wheat stalks, and curly willow branches to create a lush floral arch.

The reception took place in the charming Carriage House at King Family. A soft, cascading garland was draped across the mantle piece of the stone fireplace, and hanging lights created a romantic atmosphere.

Lovely, low arrangements in birch bark containers were placed throughout the room on the round guest tables. Composed of Pee Gee hydrangea, blue thistle, dusty miller, ivy tendrils, wheat, and greens, the arrangements added vibrancy to the room. Each centerpiece was encircled by silver, vintage mercury glass votives.

To keep variety and interest in the design, the other guest tables at the reception were adorned with small, rustic lanterns. The lanterns sat on round, wooden slabs draped in moss, hydrangea blooms, and seeded eucalyptus. Mercury glass votives complemented the warm glow from the lantern centerpiece.

The rectangular head table allowed for a more dynamic tablescape design. A long garland of salal, seeded eucalyptus, magnolia, and hydrangea blooms extended down the length of the table. Glass cylinders for the bridesmaid’s bouquets and votive candles were nestled into the garland. Additionally, long and low, rustic iron troughs were filled with moss and a line of votive candles.

We were so honored to be a part of Christian and Jesse’s wedding day! It has certainly become one of our favorite weddings to share, not only for the stunning photographs and gorgeous views, but for the pure joy and love that Christain and Jesse exude. Congratulations to the lovely couple, and we wish you all the best in your future together!

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!

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.
