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!

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.


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.
