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."

M+M's Blush and Blue Summer Peony Wedding at Decatur House DC

The historic Decatur House in Washington DC was the perfect venue for Michelle and Michael's romantic June wedding. The ceremony was held in the outdoor courtyard surrounded by the landscaped gardens in bloom. The color story was dusty blue, blush pink, creamy white and soft grey with lots of lush textural flowers. Michelle's bouquet was an abundant mix of peonies, garden roses, hydrangea, spray roses, lisianthus, delphinium, ranunculus and dusty miller. Her eight bridesmaids wore blush metallic gowns and carried open pale pink peonies surrounded by dusty miller and tied with metallic gold ribbon. Michael wore a blush pink garden rose with a touch of hydrangea, delphinium and dusty miller. The groomsmen wore a single garden rose. The couple exchanged vows on the brick courtyard framed to two arrangements in sandstone urns. Cocktail hour was held indoors with tiny arrangements and candles accenting the cocktail tables. Guests dined in the courtyard at round tables covered in white linens with silver chargers and accents and low centerpieces in glass bowls and footed compotes filled with lush romantic blooms to match the bride's bouquet.

I loved working with this couple and the amazing group of vendors! Check out the lovely review from the bride and the vendor list below:

"We had the pleasure of working with Jolie Joswick of Uncloudy Studio for the flowers for our wedding on 6/4/16. From the very beginning, Jolie was wonderful and we could tell that she was going to make our wedding beautiful. She did not disappoint. The flowers were beyond what we ever could have expected. (Honestly, numerous people told us they could not believe how gorgeous the florals were!!) We appreciate Jolie, her creativity and excellent taste so very much. You helped to make our day spectacular! Future brides and grooms, you will not be disappointed if you choose an Uncloudy Studio for your wedding, we can guarantee it!"

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. "

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

Lovely Lilac, Lavender and Peony May Wedding in Washington DC

Uncloudy Studio was only a small part of Caitlin and Paul's lavender-filled wedding this May in Washington DC but the bride was so amazing, and so were these photos, that I just had to share! Caitlin was a DIY bride and provided all the flowers (with the help of family and friends) but called me in to design her bridal bouquet and altar arrangement. The floral theme was lots and lots of fresh lavender which was incorporated into the design of the bouquet and large-scale arrangement. Caitlin's bouquet was a lovely, lush mix of purples and white with fresh local lilacs, lavender, peonies, ranunculus and double tulips. The altar piece, which was displayed during the ceremony and repurposed at the reception, included the same flowers with the addition of coral charm peonies, larkspur, stock, hydrangea and curly willow.

Enjoy the photos and check out this glowing review from the bride!

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...

Blush and Succulents for an October Wedding in Virginia

In early October, I had the pleasure of designing the flowers for Laura and Ryan's wedding in Virginia. Laura is sweet and creative and a dream to work with and we captured her style with romantic flowers and a soft color palette. We styled the flowers around a navy, blush, white and green color story with fluffy high-petal count flowers, on-trend succulents and textural foliage. The flowers used to create this look included: white hydrangea, peach garden roses, pale lavender dahlias, pink astilbe, blush mini calla lilies, echeveria and seeded eucalyptus. Enjoy!
