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:

Michelle said...
"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!"

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!

Sarah + Andy's September Wedding at The Anderson House, Washington DC

Everything about this September wedding was lovely; the bride, the venue, the color palette and the day!

Sarah and Andy's late summer/early fall wedding took place at the Anderson House in Washington DC which is a gorgeous venue. The color story was berry tones: fuchsia, plum, deep pink, blush and ivory with accents of gold. Sarah's bridal bouquet was a soft and loose romantic mix of hydrangea, garden roses, ranunculus, dahlias, scabiosa and succulents with green privet berries and hanging pepperberries for texture. The bridesmaids wore dove grey dresses and carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet. Andy's boutonniere was designed with a single succulent and berry accents. The rest of the boutonnieres were all slightly different but complimented each other. Sarah and Andy's ceremony was held outside in the Hoyt Garden which features a pool, statue and stone columns. The varying height columns were the backdrop for the ceremony and each held a lush arrangement in gold pedestal bowls. The pool's corners were accented with gold lanterns, votive candles, foliage garland and loose blooms.

Cocktail hour was held indoors in The Olmsted Gallery with tiny arrangements in gold vases on the cocktail tables and place cards nestled in beds of moss on gold wooden trays. The reception was in The Ballroom with tables draped in ivory linens and accented with lush seasonal centerpieces of antique hydrangea, dahlias, ranunculus, roses, berries and foliage in matte gold vases and footed bowls.

Kelli + Dara's Modern White Wedding at Le Meridien Hotel in VA

Uncloudy Studio had the pleasure of designing the flowers for Kelli and Dara's wedding in May at Le Meridien Hotel in Arlington, Virginia. They are a super sweet couple and had modern vision of their wedding with a clean color palette of white and navy with silver accents. Their wedding ceremony was held outside on the terrace at Le Meridien with simple navy ribbons tied on the aisle chairs and clouds of baby's breath in sleek white ceramic vases to accent the altar. Kelli's bouquet was a romantic mix of all white with pops of silvery grey including anemones, peonies, ranunuculs, tulips, dusty miller and brunia. Dara's boutonniere complimented the bridal bouquet with a single anemone, dusty miller and brunia. The reception was held inside with stunning floor to ceiling windows and long white marble tables with navy runners. Each table had multiple arrangements of a single variety of white flowers (roses, peonies, rununculus, hydrangea and tulips) in a silver glass cube. The overall look was chic, clean and modernly romantic.

Enjoy the photos and check out this lovely note from the bride:

"THANK YOU!! Dara and I were so happy with all the flowers and we received many compliments on how beautiful everything looked. Thank you for all you help with making our wedding day absolutely beautiful!   Kelli"

Chris and Stephanie's Spring Virginia Vineyard Wedding

I met Stephanie after designing the flowers for her friend, Brittany's, wedding last fall. (Brittany and Dan's wedding can be found here, here and here.) Stephanie described her vision for her wedding flowers as "It's a spring outdoor wedding and I'd like the flowers to look fresh and a little wild". Done and done! Her color story was neutral cream and robin's egg blue with accents of metallic gold. For her flowers we choose pastel shades of blue, lavender, pink and white. Other than making sure the flowers were seasonal, a little bit wild and pastel, I had free reign with the flower choices and design. Stephanie was such a dream to work with that I wish we could repeat her wedding every spring!

Stephanie and Chris' May wedding was held at the absolutely stunning Bluemont Vineyard, if you haven't visited I suggest to put it on your to-do list! (The little town is charming so plan to stop by The Bluemont Store to step back in time before heading to the vineyard) The Jewish ceremony was held outside under a chuppah constructed by Uncloudy Studio made of birch logs and lightly draped with fresh foliage garland and curly willow with the bases accented by potted hydrangea plants. They were married along a stone wall with a gorgeous view of the vineyard and Loudoun Valley behind them. The chairs at the ceremony were accented with gold mason jars brimming with a seasonal mix of wildflowers. These jars were then re-purposed on the dinner tables. The bride carried a lush bouquet of blue hydrangea and delphinium, purple lilacs and veronica, lavender roses and sweet peas, white tulips and pale pink ranunculus. The six bridesmaids carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet and the men wore boutonnieres of lavender roses. The reception was held inside a to-die-for barn and the tables were decorated with a mix of wildflower mason jars and bud vases to compliment the lanterns and candles provided by Elegant Momentz by Kathleen. Elegant Momentz also served as the wedding planner and stylist for all things non-floral and Kathleen and her staff did an amazing job on the details! It was a beautiful day at an amazing venue with a rockstar group of vendors!

Here's a little note from the bride: "Jolie Joswick did the most amazing job on my flowers," Stephanie said. "I loved them more than any other flowers I have ever seen."

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!

Colorful Autumn Wedding in DC with Flowers, Fruits and Veggies!

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!

Enjoy the photos from me and Evan Rowland Photography.

Elegant Blue, White and Green Wedding at the Arts Club of Washington

Today I'm taking a trip down memory lane to an elegant and intimate wedding at the Arts Club of Washington in Washington, DC. The subtle color palette was light blue, green and white. The flowers used to create the soft and subdued bouquets were: blue hydrangea, white mini callas lilies, white and green roses, star of Bethlehem, green hypericum, dusty miller and fresh rosemary (for remembrance). The boutonnieres were white mini calla lilies with a touch of hydrangea and rosemary plus a bloom of star of Bethlehem. The corsages were bracelets of flowers incorporating hybrid delphinium, white spray roses, green hypericum berries and hints of rosemary. The setting for the ceremony was outdoors with white seating and two large floral arrangements in urns to accentuate the altar area. The floral displays included large calla lilies, bells of Ireland, hybrid delphinium, white oriental lilies, blue hydrangea, white snapdragons, roses and green mini coin.

Enjoy!
