Two Brides are Better Than One! July Wedding at Long View Gallery DC

Annisah and Khala's July wedding was held at Long View Gallery in Washington, DC with lots of teal, gold, magenta and fairy lights! Annisa's bridal bouquet was filled with lush seasonal blooms with vibrant shades of pink and magenta garden roses, stock, freesia, sweet william and gerbera daisies with white dahlias, roses and veronica and eucalyptus accents. The ceremony was held in the gallery with gold lanterns filled with greenery and fairly lights framing the aisle. The reception tables were draped in rich teal linens and the aisle lanterns were re-purposed as the centerpieces along with three tiny gold vases with a few blooms in each and gold mercury glass votive candles.

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

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...

Bettina and Laura's Intimate Plum, Blush and Gold Fall Wedding at the DC War Memorial

I loved loved LOVED working with Bettina and Laura! It really doesn't get much better than that. Seriously. Bettina and I just clicked when we met last summer. Her vision was right in line with my aesthetic and I didn't want to wait until October to see it all come to life! But I really got excited for this wedding when I met Laura during a venue visit. I could feel the love so strongly between these two that I was inspired to do my very best to create the perfect flowers for their wedding. The look was organic, lush, seasonal and textural. The color palette was blush, burgundy, plum and gold. We used deep red peonies, antique hydrangea, peach garden roses, pink ranunculus, red dahlias, hanging amaranthus, blush anemones, blushing bride protea and seeded eucalyptus with accents of gold. The bouquet was wild and lush and Bettina told me she took it with her on their honeymoon :) Each boutonniere was different from the next as were all of the centerpieces. The ceremony took place outside on a gorgeous fall day at the DC War Memorial and the intimate reception was held at Poste Moderne Brasserie adjacent to the Hotel Monaco in downtown DC. The centerpieces were designed in beautiful ombre vases with gold table numbers (provided by the bride). I'm kind of sad that it's over...

Okay, enough gushing. Happy married life you two xoxo! Enjoy a few photos from Nick Stone Photography (and a few from yours truly)!

Sam and Steve's Orange and Gold Autumn Wedding at the Carnegie Library in DC

I've said it before and now I'm saying it again: I have the best clients! When Sam and I met we immediately clicked and I knew we would have a great time working together. Her vision was "I really like orange and gold" and "rich, old people's stuff" and from that we created elegant personal flowers and eclectic table centerpieces that combined flowers in warm tones of orange, red, gold and green in gold mercury glass vessels of varying sizes and shapes along with vintage books, birds and library cards as table numbers. Sam's bouquet was designed using orange "Sunset" garden roses and her bridesmaid carried golden orange dahlias against a gorgeous navy dress. The boutonnieres were a mix of roses, dahlias and mokara orchids - each one different from the next - and the three little flower girls looked adorable with their floral crowns and nosegays. The ceremony flowers were designed in tall gold vases with orange snapdragons, garden roses, orchids, dahlias and wax flower and they were repurposed for the reception.

It was such a pleasure to be a part of this fall wedding in Washington, DC! Please enjoy the photos from Michael Bonfigli Photography.
