Citrus Summer Wedding at Woodend Sanctuary and Mansion in MD

Mackenzie and Pete's June wedding was full of some of my favorite things: seasonal summer flowers, bright citrus-y colors and lots of greenery! Mackenzie's bridal bouquet featured bright coral charm peonies, orange and hot pink ranunculus, Free Spirit roses, yellow tulips, magenta stock and veronica and bupleurum. Her bridesmaid carried a similar yet smaller bouquet. The groom's boutonniere was designed with a mix of ranunculus and roses. The adorable flower girl wore a floral crown of matching blooms.

Their ceremony was held at St. Peter's in Capitol Hill which is a grand and gorgeous church so we kept the floral decor to a minimum by adding foliage garlands trailing between the first few pews and a pops of color with a few blooms on the other pews. These flowers and greenery were later used at the reception to accent the mantel, stairway, cake table and escort card table.

The reception was held at Woodend Sanctuary with dinner on the covered terrace and dancing inside the mansion. The guests were greeted by and garland covered "Welcome" sign and a long Escort Card table adorned with garland, white lanterns, candles and small apothecary bottles with colorful flowers. The centerpieces for the dinner tables were two designs: half of the tables held wood boxes with mixed summer flowers and the other half held white lanterns with three small vases of flowers.

It was refreshing to work with a couple who embraced color and wasn't afraid to use it in their wedding!

Mackenzie said... "I highly recommend Jolie at Uncloudy Studio. The flower arrangements and my bridal bouquet were some of the most stunning I have ever seen. All of my guests made comments about the flowers and how beautiful they were. They exceeded my expectations! "

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!"

Alison + Joel's Winter Wonderland White Wedding in Historic Annapolis MD

On one of the snowiest days we had this past winter two of the sweetest people got married and it was magical!

Alison and Joel were married at the United States Naval Academy Chapel and celebrated at Governor Calvert House both in historic Annapolis, MD on February 21, 2015. The weather added a winter wonderland effect to the photos and was the perfect accent to their color palette of winter white, slate grey and dusty lavender. The gorgeous bride, Alison (I could gush all day about how sweet and kind and lovely she is! Serously.) carried a bridal bouquet of fluffy white hydrangea, romantic peonies, ruffly white ranunculus, delicate white spray roses and antique lavender roses. A variety of succulents were added to give this romantic and vintage-looking bouquet a modern touch while seeded eucalyptus, brunia and dusty miller gave the bouquet a hint of grey and a pop of texture. The bridesmaids (all 8 of them!) wore long slate grey dresses with matching fur stoles and carried miniature versions of the bridal bouquet sans the succulents. This was a military wedding so only a few of the men wore boutonnieres which were designed with a single tiny succulent, dusty miller, seeded eucalyptus and a ranunculus bloom wrapped in slate ribbon.

Dinner for the reception at Governor Calvert House was held in a transformed ballroom with white draped walls and romantic chandeliers overhead two extra long tables for the guests. Each table had a runner of seeded and willow eucalyptus garland with long, low and lush centerpieces of all white flowers including hydrangea, roses, peonies and wax flower accented with dusty miller and brunia.

Enjoy the photos from the bride's very talented friends, Kat Herrera and Rylan Tuohy along with a few from yours truly!
