Pink Peonies for a June Wedding at the DC War Memorial

Kelly and Aaron's June wedding was an intimate family affair at the DC War Memorial. Kelly's bridal bouquet featured blush pink and white peonies, white roses, pink spray roses, blush lisianthus and sweet peas with eucalyptus accents. Her sister and Maid-of-Honor carried a similar yet smaller bouquet. The groom's boutonniere was a single pink peony and his daughter carried a tiny bouquet to match the bride. The star of the show (other than the bride, of course!) was Gatsby, the dog, with his floral collar!

We adorned the steps of the War Memorial with six low arrangements of peonies, roses and eucalyptus in wood boxes. These arrangements were then re-purposed at the Hay Adams as their luncheon centerpieces.

Kelly said...
"My flowers were gorgeous! Jolie was delightful to work with--organized, responsive, and full of great ideas. I felt that her vision was creative and flexible."

Emily + Ryan's Gold, Plum and Berry Fall Wedding at the Tabard Inn in DC

This wedding gave me all the feels with lots of seasonal flowers, rich colors, textural foliage, candlelight and gold pumpkins all in an intimate setting!

Emily and Ryan's wedding was at the Tabard Inn in Washington, DC on a gorgeous November day. The bridal bouquet was a loose, organic design featuring berry pink garden roses, anemones, purple clematis, eggplant calla lilies, white ranunculus, hydrangea and privet berries along with seeded and willow eucalyptus. Her bridesmaid carried a similar but smaller bouquet and Ryan wore a boutonniere of purple hydrangea and a single anemone. The ceremony was held upstairs in the Tabard Inn's intimate, Victorian dining room complete with gorgeous fireplaces and tons of candlelight. The couple was married in front of one of the fireplaces which was accented with a long and low arrangement of antique hydrangea, garden roses, snapdragons, lisianthus, privet berries and eucalyptus in a gold bowl with lots of gold mercury glass candles. Adorning both sides of the fireplace were two tall arrangements of curly willow, callicarpa, antique hydrangea and snapdragons. The windowsills were all accented with mixed eucalyptus garlands and votive candles. The centerpieces for the reception were designed in gold pumpkins with kale, purple stock, white roses and lots of berries and foliage along with gold votive candles.

This was a gorgeous fall wedding in a unique and warm venue with the sweetest couple. Check out the 5 star review the bride sent me the morning after their wedding:

"It's the day after my wedding and I'm posting a review - that's how thrilled and overjoyed I was with my flowers! Jolie was a true pleasure to work with, and I had complete confidence that if everything else went wrong, the flowers would be gorgeous. I had no idea that they would be spectacular! My jaw dropped when I saw my bouquet and again when I saw the finished rooms. You will be lucky to have such a warm and talented professional transform your vision into reality. Thank you, Jolie, from the bottom of my heart." - Emily Conrad

Liz and Harry's Fall Wedding in Alexandria VA

It's ridiculous how behind I am at blogging but since yesterday was the first day of fall I thought I'd (finally) share this gorgeous wedding from last October!

Liz and Harry's wedding ceremony was held outdoors at the Waterfront Park in Alexandria although the actual ceremony was a bit delayed because the entire wedding party was stuck in an elevator and required rescue from the local fire department. The couple's story went viral and they were interviewed on Good Morning America while on their honeymoon! Read more about it here and here.

The color story was rich jewel-tone fall shades including deep red, vibrant orange and royal purple. The bridal bouquet was a modern sleek design of only jewel-toned calla lilies in crimson, mango and eggplant. The bridesmaid's carried a seasonal mix of roses, dahlias, salvia, hypericum, spray roses and seeded eucalyptus which really popped against their plum gowns. The ceremony was held outside on the waterfront under a simple birch chuppah.

The reception was located at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria with low and lush centerpieces with a funky mix of flowers all in autumn tones. We used succulents, protea, artichokes, kale and black pearl peppers along with fall foliage, bittersweet, roses, ranunculus and dahlias in the centerpieces.

Liz and Harry are an amazing couple and were such a pleasure to work with!

Noah + Sandra's Wildflower Summer Wedding at Josephine Butler Parks Center, Washington DC

There are so many things I loved about Noah and Sandra's wedding last summer! First, the brides! They are kind, sweet and creative and involved family and tradition and memories into their Jewish/Brazilian wedding. Second, the venue, Josephine Butler Parks Center is by far one of my favorites venues in Washington, DC. The staff is amazing, the space is gorgeous (so many fireplaces and mantels to decorate!) and the feel is intimate. Third, the color and whimsy of the decor which included local seasonal summer flowers in every color you can imagine!

Noah and Sandra's ceremony was held outside in Josephine Butler Parks Center's outdoor ceremony space under a chuppah. Each bride carried a wildflower bouquet of white, lavender and yellow with bird of paradise as the focal flower in memory of Noah's mother. The other blooms were: hydrangea, chamomile, lavender, craspedia, dahlias and baby's breath. The bridesmaids wore flowing gowns of dusty lavender and carried baby's breath bouquets wrapped in burlap. The adorable flower girl wore a floral crown of baby's breath and wildflowers and tossed petals down the aisle which was lined with birch buckets filled with baby's breath. The men all wore bird of paradise boutonnieres, in remembrance of Noah's mother.

The baby's breath and wildflower theme continued inside the venue filling an assortment of vintage style bottles, jars and vases and wooden crates and boxes. Noah's sister, Leigh, provided a plethora of rustic details and decor to the flowers adding extra warmth and a personal touch. Each mantel was draped in either baby's breath, foliage or wildflower garland along with the railings on the grand staircase. There were flower arrangements inside the fireplaces, on the windowsills, in the restrooms, you name it! The guest tables were all different but coordinated beautifully with an assortment of vessels displaying bright, seasonal wildflowers and a framed table number atop a rustic slice of wood. The flowers used in the centerpieces and throughout the venue included: hydrangea, celosia, scabiosa, veronica, marigolds, black-eyed susans, sunflowers, ageratum, millet, wheat, asters, zinnias, dahlias, craspedia and chamomile to name a few. The place cards were held in notched birch logs nestled on a bed of moss and there were candles everywhere!

Check out this glowing review from the beautiful brides (I'm blushing just reading it again):

Noah and Sandra said...
"Jolie is the kindest, most responsible, professional I have ever worked with. Jolie made our wedding so very beautiful by listening to exactly what we wanted and bringing it to life. She was the only florist that we interviewed who brought us a sample flower bouquet to our meeting as a gift for meeting with her. We were not easy customers, we asked for a lot, and Jolie did it all with a smile and a true love for what she does. In every way that we asked her to she went above and beyond her call of duty. If you are looking for a florist who can work with whatever budget you give her, listen to you with professionalism and warmth, and bring to life your dream day - Jolie is the person for you! Out of all our vendors, Jolie gets our highest ratings and endorsement. Additionally, we are an LGBTQ couple and Jolie is incredibly welcoming and supportive of our love and did all that we asked to incorporate new and old traditions into our wedding day."

This wedding was so much fun to be a part of and the vendor team was amazing! So if you're looking for a beautiful yet intimate venue in DC with a rockstar cast of vendors then check out the list below!

Sarah + Andy's September Wedding at The Anderson House, Washington DC

Everything about this September wedding was lovely; the bride, the venue, the color palette and the day!

Sarah and Andy's late summer/early fall wedding took place at the Anderson House in Washington DC which is a gorgeous venue. The color story was berry tones: fuchsia, plum, deep pink, blush and ivory with accents of gold. Sarah's bridal bouquet was a soft and loose romantic mix of hydrangea, garden roses, ranunculus, dahlias, scabiosa and succulents with green privet berries and hanging pepperberries for texture. The bridesmaids wore dove grey dresses and carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet. Andy's boutonniere was designed with a single succulent and berry accents. The rest of the boutonnieres were all slightly different but complimented each other. Sarah and Andy's ceremony was held outside in the Hoyt Garden which features a pool, statue and stone columns. The varying height columns were the backdrop for the ceremony and each held a lush arrangement in gold pedestal bowls. The pool's corners were accented with gold lanterns, votive candles, foliage garland and loose blooms.

Cocktail hour was held indoors in The Olmsted Gallery with tiny arrangements in gold vases on the cocktail tables and place cards nestled in beds of moss on gold wooden trays. The reception was in The Ballroom with tables draped in ivory linens and accented with lush seasonal centerpieces of antique hydrangea, dahlias, ranunculus, roses, berries and foliage in matte gold vases and footed bowls.

Lauren + Andrew's Garden Rose + Hydrangea Wedding at The Long View Gallery in DC

In the heat of July, Lauren and Andrew kept it cool with their simple yet chic wedding at The Long View Gallery in Washington, DC. They are a down-to-earth couple and I loved working with them! They had a clean and modern vision for their wedding - white and coral with accents of gold - which was held in an art gallery with a raw and urban vibe. Their wedding ceremony was held in the back of the gallery against a brick wall which was accented with tall vases of curly willow and white snapdragons (one of the bride's favorite flowers) with candles down the aisle. Lauren's bouquet was designed using all peach Juliet garden roses. For a personal touch we added lace and a brooch - family heirloom's from Lauren. The bridesmaids all carried white hydrangea bouquets that were later used on the head table and the flower girl carried a nosegay of Queen Anne's lace. The men's boutonnieres were peach garden roses (Andrew) and peach spray roses. The reception was held in the front of the gallery with bubble roses of white hydrangea, candles and gold numbers on each table.

Enjoy the photos from and this 5-star review from the bride:

Lauren said...
"Jolie was absolutely a joy to work with. She's friendly, professional, and great at what she does. We worked together via email, phone, and in-person, and she was always up-beat and helpful. I really appreciated that she would take our ideas, and then give me multiple flower and price options to consider. She was also ready to spring to action when we had a last-minute change in venue and needed her help with new decor. I would highly recommend her and hope I have reason to work with her again!"

Chris and Stephanie's Spring Virginia Vineyard Wedding

I met Stephanie after designing the flowers for her friend, Brittany's, wedding last fall. (Brittany and Dan's wedding can be found here, here and here.) Stephanie described her vision for her wedding flowers as "It's a spring outdoor wedding and I'd like the flowers to look fresh and a little wild". Done and done! Her color story was neutral cream and robin's egg blue with accents of metallic gold. For her flowers we choose pastel shades of blue, lavender, pink and white. Other than making sure the flowers were seasonal, a little bit wild and pastel, I had free reign with the flower choices and design. Stephanie was such a dream to work with that I wish we could repeat her wedding every spring!

Stephanie and Chris' May wedding was held at the absolutely stunning Bluemont Vineyard, if you haven't visited I suggest to put it on your to-do list! (The little town is charming so plan to stop by The Bluemont Store to step back in time before heading to the vineyard) The Jewish ceremony was held outside under a chuppah constructed by Uncloudy Studio made of birch logs and lightly draped with fresh foliage garland and curly willow with the bases accented by potted hydrangea plants. They were married along a stone wall with a gorgeous view of the vineyard and Loudoun Valley behind them. The chairs at the ceremony were accented with gold mason jars brimming with a seasonal mix of wildflowers. These jars were then re-purposed on the dinner tables. The bride carried a lush bouquet of blue hydrangea and delphinium, purple lilacs and veronica, lavender roses and sweet peas, white tulips and pale pink ranunculus. The six bridesmaids carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet and the men wore boutonnieres of lavender roses. The reception was held inside a to-die-for barn and the tables were decorated with a mix of wildflower mason jars and bud vases to compliment the lanterns and candles provided by Elegant Momentz by Kathleen. Elegant Momentz also served as the wedding planner and stylist for all things non-floral and Kathleen and her staff did an amazing job on the details! It was a beautiful day at an amazing venue with a rockstar group of vendors!

Here's a little note from the bride: "Jolie Joswick did the most amazing job on my flowers," Stephanie said. "I loved them more than any other flowers I have ever seen."
