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!

Outdoor Fall Wedding in DC with Blue Hydrangea, Seasonal Flowers and Herbs!

I feel very to lucky to have been a part of Adrianne and Danny's October wedding which took place her parents beautiful back yard in Bethesda. They are such a warm and sweet couple and were an absolute pleasure to work with! The bride was in love with hydrangea, dusty miller and mint so that was focus for the personal flowers. Adrianne carried a lush bouquet of blue hydrangea and silvery dusty miller with a touch of mint. The bridesmaids wore navy blue and held simple bouquets of dusty miller and mint which popped perfectly against their dresses. The ceremony took place under a chuppah constructed of birch poles and branches draped in an elegant foliage garland. We added a lot more color to the reception but placing natural wood boxes on the tables filled with a seasonal mix of dahlias, celosia, sunflowers, salvia, hydrangea, billy balls, dusty miller, amaranthus and herbs. The cocktail and buffet tables were accented with smaller wood boxes of potted herbs like mint, parsley, lemongrass and thyme.

So happy to have been a part of this special day! Enjoy the photos from Bonnie Sen Creative Photography and flowers by Uncloudy Studio!

Flashback to a Fall Wedding in Washington DC

These cooler temperatures and the end of summer (sigh) approaching have me thinking ahead to fall and thinking back to one of my favorite brides ever!

I had the pleasure, a few years ago, of working with the lovely Stephanie Lew Block on her October wedding in Washington, DC. She was an absolute dream and we were fast friends even keeping touch to the present day. You can read her testimonial here.

Her color palette was rich autumn tones of red, orange, deep burgundy, yellow and a pop of bright green. Her flowers included mini calla lilies, hypericum berries, mini gerbera daisies, spray roses and roses.

Enjoy the flashback and her beautiful photos from Renee Michele Photography.
