Chris + Caitlyn's Industrial Chic Wildflower Wedding at Studio Theatre DC

Chris and Caitlyn were SO fun to work with and had so many amazing ideas and were so open to my ideas and so involved in the design... Am I gushing? Anyway...

The wedding took place in April at Studio Theatre in Washington, DC. Because the venue is a theatre the space is raw and industrial and a bit of a blank space which is exactly what this couple wanted. The theme was colorful and eclectic, modern yet bohemian, industrial and chic. Caitlyn's bridal bouquet was a wild, organic, free-form design with seasonal colorful blooms featuring coral charm peonies, grape hyacinth, tulips, ranunculus, garden roses, thistle, billy balls, succulents, eucalyptus and fern. Her bridesmaids wore shades of grey, nude and blush and carried wildflower bouquets of heather, veronica, chamomile, stock and thistle. The groom's boutonniere was designed with a mix of herbs and ranunculus while the rest of the men wore simple sprigs of herbs and greenery.

The ceremony was held in the atrium of Studio Theatre against a brick wall which we accented with an asymmetrical hanging garland of mixed foliage and bright pops of flowers. The aisle was lined with metal flower buckets, some filled with potted lavender and others filled with greenery, chamomile and poppy pods.

The guest tables for the reception were a mix of long rustic tables, low round tables and high top tables. The long tables had a greenery runner with a tall metal bucket in the center which held the bridesmaid's bouquets plus two copper buckets of mixed wildflowers. The round tables had a mix of concrete pots (made by the couple!) and corrugated tin cans each with a large peony or protea and greenery or succulents. Every table was filled with mixed metal votive candles.

It gets better! Not only was this wedding super fun to design but the rockstar bride also gave me a stellar review:

Caitlyn said...
"Three weeks after our wedding, I am still beaming from the amazing flowers that Jolie created for us. Jolie was definitely one of my favorite vendors that we worked with. From the first meeting where she brought me a sample bouquet and my original ideas were NOTHING that I actually settled on, Jolie was completely warm, welcoming and professional. I booked her very shortly after our first meeting. As our conversations and Pinterest boards continued, I got more and more focused and bold with my decisions. Her suggestion that our wedding could be "industrial chic" completely shifted my focus from traditional white flowers to what I really wanted - bold greenery, pops of color, crazy wildflowers and a stunning garland backdrop for our ceremony. Jolie wasn't only completely on board with these ideas, but was EXCITED. It was so inspiring to me and my husband that her enthusiasm for her work shined through, and it really allowed us to feel comfortable with our decisions. I literally cried when Jolie dropped off my stunning bouquet, it was THAT beautiful (and continues to be as it hangs drying in a closet for us to enjoy in years to come!). Our pictures turned out beautifully, partially in thanks to our amazing photographers, but also due to Jolie's attention to detail and perfect execution of our vision. Book Jolie immediately! I plan to for any future floral needs, personal or professional. "

Karin + Frank's Spring Tulip and Peony Wedding at City Club, Washington DC

Karin and Frank's spring wedding was at the City Club in downtown Washington, DC. Karin was in love with all spring flowers especially tulips, hyacinth and lilacs which we were able to easily incorporate into her wedding since the couple chose April to get married! The bridal bouquet was a lush and fragrant mix of seasonal spring blooms featuring white peonies, tulips and lilacs with pops of coral ranunculus and pink garden roses. Her bridesmaids wore shades of blush and coral and carried simple, but gorgeous, bouquets of white double tulips and calcynia for a delicate touch of pink. The groom's boutonniere was designed with a white tulip and coral ranunculus and a touch of eucalyptus while the rest of the men wore a single white rununculus.

The ceremony was held in the atrium of the City Club in downtown Washington DC by the indoor fountain at the bottom of a grand staircase. The couple was married under a chuppah draped in sheer white fabric and adorned with peonies, orchids, roses and tulips with candles and rose petals around the bases.

The centerpieces for the reception featured two different looks. Half of the tables had three varying height votive candle holders along with three cylinder vases of blush tulips. The other half of the tables had three low varying height vases each with one variety of flower: white hydrangea, pink hyacinth and blush tulips plus pillar candles in glass. The look was soft and romantic and full of candlelight.

Check out the 5 star review from the bride:

Karin said...
"Jolie was a wonderful person to work with leading up to and on my wedding day. She even advocated for my vision, the vision we talked about when well intentioned friends would take over decision making. She's responsive, thoughtful, and easy to work with no matter the budget. Jolie was a recommendation from a friend and I am so beyond thrilled with the results."

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

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!"

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...

Colorful Autumn Wedding in DC with Flowers, Fruits and Veggies!

As I gear up for the fabulous frenzy of fall weddings, I'm looking back at some of my past favorites. This week I'm taking a stroll down memory lane with Melissa and Mike and their gorgeous October indoor/outdoor wedding at 2941 Restaurant in Falls Church.

The ceremony was held outside on the beautiful terrace under a handmade chuppah of birch and curly willow accented with fresh bittersweet vines. The bride and groom wanted a "farmer's market" flower feel with all seasonal flowers in vibrant colors to pop against the black bridesmaid's dresses and touch of purple was added to match their purple shoes! The bride and her bridesmaids all carried hand-tied bouquets with sunflowers, orange roses, dahlias, celosia and zinnias with a touch of statice and ageratum. The men all wore slightly different boutonnieres and instead of corsages, the Mother's carried single sunflowers wrapped in eggplant ribbon.

The indoor reception carried over the same color palette and flower choices but also incorporated fresh fruits and vegetables and a "Moroccan" feel with lanterns, candles and framed table numbers. The centerpieces were each unique and included pomegranates, artichokes, protea, oranges and bittersweet.

The bride and groom were an absolute joy to work with and their floral vision allowed me to create a beautiful seasonal wedding that I still love to share!

Enjoy the photos from me and Evan Rowland Photography.
