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)!

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.


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!
