Wedding Equinox

Our first bridal bouquet of the year was for this modern, fairy-like bride we referred to as 'Laurel in London' who found us from across the pond by way of fate and miracles. Her stunning look was set off by the most gorgeous emerald earrings and ring. She asked for modern, earthy vibes and with no idea about her bridal look, we created this emerald green, mossy centerpiece for a sweet, intimate wedding ceremony and reception at the St. Franciscan Monastery in Washington, D.C.

Her bouquet is also jewel-toned with ruby and amethyst-hued anemones paired with lush greenery and a soft grey-green succulent to accent. The groom also wore a succulent boutonnière to complement her flowers ~ isn't that tidy?

We are so grateful for this job that brings us in touch with most wonderful people on the most joyous of life's occasions. Cheers to a spectacular start to your 2018!

Sea Glass Hues for an Outdoor Wedding on the Chesapeake Bay

A hot day in Mid-July seems a fitting time to share this sea glass inspired color palette from a recent wedding. We used light blue delphinium for a touch of whimsy in traditional bouquets and centerpieces with ivory roses, peonies, ranunculus, eucalyptus, dusty miller and queen anne's lace. It's fun to know that this chic, elegant evening was followed by a weekend of brunching, lawn games, family time on the beach, and cocktails served from a custom, mobile tiki bar! It was a perfect weekend on the Eastern Shore.

Wishing everyone many sun-filled, beach days of summer ahead!
