Mackenzie and Pete's June wedding was full of some of my favorite things: seasonal summer flowers, bright citrus-y colors and lots of greenery! Mackenzie's bridal bouquet featured bright coral charm peonies, orange and hot pink ranunculus, Free Spirit roses, yellow tulips, magenta stock and veronica and bupleurum. Her bridesmaid carried a similar yet smaller bouquet. The groom's boutonniere was designed with a mix of ranunculus and roses. The adorable flower girl wore a floral crown of matching blooms.
Their ceremony was held at St. Peter's in Capitol Hill which is a grand and gorgeous church so we kept the floral decor to a minimum by adding foliage garlands trailing between the first few pews and a pops of color with a few blooms on the other pews. These flowers and greenery were later used at the reception to accent the mantel, stairway, cake table and escort card table.
The reception was held at Woodend Sanctuary with dinner on the covered terrace and dancing inside the mansion. The guests were greeted by and garland covered "Welcome" sign and a long Escort Card table adorned with garland, white lanterns, candles and small apothecary bottles with colorful flowers. The centerpieces for the dinner tables were two designs: half of the tables held wood boxes with mixed summer flowers and the other half held white lanterns with three small vases of flowers.
It was refreshing to work with a couple who embraced color and wasn't afraid to use it in their wedding!
Mackenzie said... "I highly recommend Jolie at Uncloudy Studio. The flower arrangements and my bridal bouquet were some of the most stunning I have ever seen. All of my guests made comments about the flowers and how beautiful they were. They exceeded my expectations! "

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!
