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. Each arrangement consisted of PeeGee hydrangea, polo roses, orange dahlias, and safflower with greens of camellia, silver dollar eucalyptus, and seeded eucalyptus. The altar arbor was wrapped in only greens of eucalyptus, salal, magnolia, and camellia in order to create a charming backdrop to the ceremony.

The reception was held in the Event Hall of Early Mountain. The focal point of the room was the grand fireplace. We repurposed the ceremony arrangements to frame the fireplace and draped the mantle with greenery and green hydrangea.

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!

Sophie and MJ

Sophie and MJ were married at Wintergreen Resort, overlooking the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains. Bright and saturated colors of fuchsia, pink, blue, navy, and red complemented the summer season. The wedding, though classic and elegant, kept things unique and fresh with interesting floral design.

Sophie’s asymmetric bouquet was breathtaking. Vibrant colors, lush florals, and cascading greenery made for a true statement piece. Orchids, purple clematis, pink and purple roses, lisianthus, dark purple hydrangea, and astrantia were tied together with fuchsia and blue ribbon.

Sophie’s bridesmaids wore dresses of navy and carried bouquets that complemented the color scheme of the wedding. Light purple hydrangea and cream, pale pink, and fuchsia roses were tied with bright pink ribbon.

For the reception, we created low, lush arrangements in rich colors of purple, red, and pink. The centerpieces were arranged in glass cylinders, with the florals and greenery adding texture and volume.

It was a pleasure to create the florals for Sophie and MJ’s wedding, and we wish the couple the best in their future together. Thank you to the amazing Allegra’s Studio for these stunning images, and all of the other amazing vendors involved.

Melanie and Doug

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.

Images from this beautiful, winter celebration can be seen below, or on our Weddings page. Thank you to Jennifer Byrne Photography  for sharing.
