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!

Betsy and John

Betsy and John’s wedding was going to be included in our Summer 2016 Weddings Highlights post, but there were just too many images by the wonderful Eric Kelley that we adored that we had to give it its own feature!

Betsy and John were married on June 25, 2016. The couple had a private family ceremony at St. Thomas Aquinas Church, followed by a larger ceremony at the family home. A tented reception took place on the lawn of Farmington Country Club. It was a romantic and classic wedding, inspired by a soft, clean, and fresh aesthetic. Colors of blush, ivory, cream, soft greens, and pale peach were used to create elegant designs that enhanced the beauty of the bride and the gorgeous scenery.

Betsy epitomized grace and beauty on her special day. She carried a formal bouquet of cream peonies, “Juliet” and “Patience” garden roses, ranunculus, and stock with a touch of seeded eucalyptus and dusty miler. A grey dupioni ribbon was wrapped around the stems and pinned with pearls.

Betsy’s matrons of honor and bridesmaids wore classic navy blue gowns. Their bouquets complemented Betsy’s in their floral composition, but contained more peach and pink tones.

Adorable flower girls wore delicate floral crowns of heather, spray roses, eucalyptus, and ivy. They carried petal baskets decorated with greens and cascading satin ribbons.

John wore a boutonniere of ivory ranunculus, seeded eucalyptus and camellia leaf, tied in grey silk ribbon to match Betsy’s bridal bouquet. The groomsmen’s boutonnieres were composed of peach spray roses, seeded eucalyptus, and dusty miller.

The precious ring bearer seemed impressed with his own boutonniere of ranunculus and seeded eucalyptus.

For the church ceremony, we created two arrangements in our Tourterelle ivory vintage urns to flank the altar. The statement pieces were composed of cream and green florals: hydrangea, delphiniums, lilies, roses, peonies, camellia foliage, and magnolia leaves. Wreathes of hydrangea and roses welcomed guests to the church.

For the larger service at Betsy’s family home, we created a stunning bamboo arbor to frame the bride and groom during their nuptials. We decorated it with collections of peonies, roses, and camellia leaf and garlands of silver dollar eucalyptus and ivy. Two lovely arrangements  of hydrangea, delphiniums, lillies, roses, peonies, and camelia and magnolia foliage anchored the base of the arbor. Shepherd’s hooks with hanging teardrop vase arrangements and blankets of ivory rose petals marked the aisle.

Chloe, the golden retriever, was one of the stars of the ceremony, sporting a floral collar and leash.

To set the festive tone, eight arrangements of ivory florals and greenery were placed in white iron ornate stands to create a pathway to the tent for the reception. Two larger white iron stands with loose, cascading florals and a green archway of Italian ruskus, salal, boxwood, and ivy framed the entryway.

One of the most unique details that we created for this wedding was the floral drum light fixture that floated above the bar in the center of the tent. Blue hydrangea, blush and cream garden roses, stock, seeded eucalyptus, and boxwood covered the frame of the drum, creating a true floral centerpiece.

The reception florals varied based on the table set up. Two long farm tables were draped with handmade boxwood garlands with touches of salal and eucalyptus. Tucked into the garland was a mix of small, vintage silver and glass vessels with fresh and soft florals.

Guest tables were centered with silver Revere bowl arrangements of varying sizes. Each was filled with fresh and loose flowers of hydrangea, roses, lisianthus, peonies, freesia, stock, ranunculus, camellia leaf, boxwood, and jasmine vine. Gold mercury votive candles were placed on each table.

Congratulations to Betsy and John! It was a pleasure to work with you both and to create such unique, gorgeous details for your special day!

An elegant and romantic wedding with the Inn at Willow Grove as the backdrop, Elizabeth and Dillon’s day was nothing short of breathtaking. A traditional and vintage aesthetic was accomplished with our floral designs and decor selections. A color palette of blush, creams, and greens with gold accents enhanced the classic motif.

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.

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.

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!

Elisabeth+Josh's wedding by Ward Pjotography www.wardpics.com

Elisabeth and Josh were married on a gorgeous summer day in June. A rustic feel with a comfortable, relaxed style characterized the wedding. Hermitage Hill Farm and Stables provided the beautiful backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the charming reception space. Ward Photography captured all of the lovely details.

Elisabeth carried an asymmetric, loose bouquet of ivory and pink. We used “Patience” and “Quicksand” roses, “Majolica” spray roses, rosemary, dusty miller, pink ranunculus, and silver dollar eucalyptus. The stems were tied with an ivory satin ribbon and pinned with pearls.

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.

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.

Dana and Kyle

On June 20, Dana and Kyle were married at the polished and elegant Old Metropolitan Hall, and their wedding was nothing short of those two descriptors. The wedding maintained a contemporary vibe, infused with many sophisticated elements.

The ceremony, held in the exquisite ballroom, was anchored by the venue’s unique, large paneled mirror and grand, white curtain. To enhance the altar’s romantic charm, we added garland to the edges of the curtain, and bouquets of white hydrangea.

Dana_Kyle_Charlottesville_OldMet_Venue_Web-30Dana_Kyle_Charlottesville_OldMet_Venue_Web-27

The gorgeous bride carried a bouquet of white to reflect the setting. The bouquet featured a wide variety of blooms to add variety and texture. Garden roses, white nerines, “Majolica” spray roses, ranunculus, hydrangea, ivory sweet peas, champagne lisianthus, freesia, seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, and veronica were tied together in a gold sequined cording, with ribbons cascading down from the stems.

The wedding incorporated pink and coral elements to the white base. The bridesmaid’s dresses and their bouquets contributed to this color palette. We also infused the reception ceremony with these hues. In the center of the long farm tables were garlands that weaved between hobnail glass jars filled with white roses, pink hypericum and spray roses, and dusty miller. Mercury glass votives added to the reception’s romantic atmosphere.
