Brittany and Daniel's Fall Wedding at Carnegie Institute for Science in Washington DC

I had one open weekend last November with no weddings or events scheduled and I was kind of looking forward to a little breather after having such a full plate all fall. Then I received an email from Brittany and I'm so glad I did! Brittany and Daniel were planning their DC wedding from the Midwest and she had planned to DIY the flowers until the last minute when she contacted me. We chatted via FaceTime and less than 3 weeks later we met in person on her wedding day. Her vision for the flowers was romantic and a little wild, elegant but unkempt. The palette was plum and gold. The final look was amazing especially with the gorgeous venue, the attention to detail from their planner and the photos are to die for!

Here's a little info on the flowers: We used lots of texture (which I love)! The colors were white, dusty antique lavender, plum, and purple with silvery grey foliage and accents of gold. We used white peonies, white anemones and white lisianthus, muted lavender "Halloween" roses and astrantia, dark plum ranunculus and scabiosa. For the foliage we used dusty miller and seeded and willow eucalyptus. The bridal bouquet was the star of the show and the bridesmaids carried much smaller versions that really popped against their plum dresses. Each boutonniere featured a different flower from the bridal bouquet adding a touch of whimsy. And the centerpieces were low and lush arrangements in matte gold glass. The king's table with adorned with a garland of gorgeous foliage and purple berries and accented with taper candles and all the bridesmaid's bouquets. It was such a dreamy wedding and an unforgettable whirlwind floral experience! I'm crossing my fingers for more events like this in 2015 :) Enjoy the pictures by Shandi Wallace...
