Uncommon Flowers for a Non-Traditional Wedding in DC

I love love love it when a client says "you have creative license" and that's exactly what was expressed to me when Uncloudy Studio worked with Miss Fete and Bloompop Weddings to do this editorial wedding on Hains Point in Washington, DC. The theme was unconventional, non-traditional with bold, rich colors. Most of the flowers were local like dahlias, cottage yarrow, ageratum, scabiosa, millet, straw flower, celosia, amaranthus and peonies. Others were not like protea, air plants and ostrich feathers. I had so much fun!

Here are a few of my personal photos. Professional photos coming soon so stayed tuned for a look at the whole wedding...

Happy Friday xo!


Flower Recap on a Few Recent Events in DC

I've been a total slacker at blogging lately. Sorry. Each time I sit down to write I think I hear my garden calling me and that's the end of that! So I'm going to do a little recap today of a few of the events that Uncloudy Studio was lucky enough to be a part of in the last couple of weeks.

Pride and Preservation: Cocktails in the Castle. This event took place earlier in the month at the Heurich House Museum. This official Capital Pride Week reception honored and celebrated the National Park Service (NPS) LGBTQ Heritage Initiative. For more information about the event and the initiative please check out the Heurich House Press Release.

Absolut Elyx Event at Chez Billy. This launch party for Absolut Elyx Luxury Vodka and was held at a great restaurant/bar, Chez Billy, in Petworth. The theme was clean, classic, simple luxury using an abundance of open white roses arranged low and lush in copper square vases.

Fit Foodie 5K Race Weekend with Cooking Light and Health magazines. The Fit Foodie race was held in Fairfax, VA and Uncloudy Studio designed a few arrangements to accent the Celebrity Chef (Anna Bullett and RJ Cooper are seen in two of the photos) cooking experience hosted by Eco Caterers. The theme for the flowers was colorful, eco-friendly, natural and locally sourced. The arrangements were designed in natural birch boxes and used 100% local flowers including peonies, lilies, black-eyed susan, thistle, yarrow, zinnia, honeysuckle and more.

I had so much fun designing each event and, as always, feel so lucky that my job is a floral designer in Washington, DC! Have a great weekend everyone :)
