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."

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!"

Chris + Caitlyn's Industrial Chic Wildflower Wedding at Studio Theatre DC

Chris and Caitlyn were SO fun to work with and had so many amazing ideas and were so open to my ideas and so involved in the design... Am I gushing? Anyway...

The wedding took place in April at Studio Theatre in Washington, DC. Because the venue is a theatre the space is raw and industrial and a bit of a blank space which is exactly what this couple wanted. The theme was colorful and eclectic, modern yet bohemian, industrial and chic. Caitlyn's bridal bouquet was a wild, organic, free-form design with seasonal colorful blooms featuring coral charm peonies, grape hyacinth, tulips, ranunculus, garden roses, thistle, billy balls, succulents, eucalyptus and fern. Her bridesmaids wore shades of grey, nude and blush and carried wildflower bouquets of heather, veronica, chamomile, stock and thistle. The groom's boutonniere was designed with a mix of herbs and ranunculus while the rest of the men wore simple sprigs of herbs and greenery.

The ceremony was held in the atrium of Studio Theatre against a brick wall which we accented with an asymmetrical hanging garland of mixed foliage and bright pops of flowers. The aisle was lined with metal flower buckets, some filled with potted lavender and others filled with greenery, chamomile and poppy pods.

The guest tables for the reception were a mix of long rustic tables, low round tables and high top tables. The long tables had a greenery runner with a tall metal bucket in the center which held the bridesmaid's bouquets plus two copper buckets of mixed wildflowers. The round tables had a mix of concrete pots (made by the couple!) and corrugated tin cans each with a large peony or protea and greenery or succulents. Every table was filled with mixed metal votive candles.

It gets better! Not only was this wedding super fun to design but the rockstar bride also gave me a stellar review:

Caitlyn said...
"Three weeks after our wedding, I am still beaming from the amazing flowers that Jolie created for us. Jolie was definitely one of my favorite vendors that we worked with. From the first meeting where she brought me a sample bouquet and my original ideas were NOTHING that I actually settled on, Jolie was completely warm, welcoming and professional. I booked her very shortly after our first meeting. As our conversations and Pinterest boards continued, I got more and more focused and bold with my decisions. Her suggestion that our wedding could be "industrial chic" completely shifted my focus from traditional white flowers to what I really wanted - bold greenery, pops of color, crazy wildflowers and a stunning garland backdrop for our ceremony. Jolie wasn't only completely on board with these ideas, but was EXCITED. It was so inspiring to me and my husband that her enthusiasm for her work shined through, and it really allowed us to feel comfortable with our decisions. I literally cried when Jolie dropped off my stunning bouquet, it was THAT beautiful (and continues to be as it hangs drying in a closet for us to enjoy in years to come!). Our pictures turned out beautifully, partially in thanks to our amazing photographers, but also due to Jolie's attention to detail and perfect execution of our vision. Book Jolie immediately! I plan to for any future floral needs, personal or professional. "

Karin + Frank's Spring Tulip and Peony Wedding at City Club, Washington DC

Karin and Frank's spring wedding was at the City Club in downtown Washington, DC. Karin was in love with all spring flowers especially tulips, hyacinth and lilacs which we were able to easily incorporate into her wedding since the couple chose April to get married! The bridal bouquet was a lush and fragrant mix of seasonal spring blooms featuring white peonies, tulips and lilacs with pops of coral ranunculus and pink garden roses. Her bridesmaids wore shades of blush and coral and carried simple, but gorgeous, bouquets of white double tulips and calcynia for a delicate touch of pink. The groom's boutonniere was designed with a white tulip and coral ranunculus and a touch of eucalyptus while the rest of the men wore a single white rununculus.

The ceremony was held in the atrium of the City Club in downtown Washington DC by the indoor fountain at the bottom of a grand staircase. The couple was married under a chuppah draped in sheer white fabric and adorned with peonies, orchids, roses and tulips with candles and rose petals around the bases.

The centerpieces for the reception featured two different looks. Half of the tables had three varying height votive candle holders along with three cylinder vases of blush tulips. The other half of the tables had three low varying height vases each with one variety of flower: white hydrangea, pink hyacinth and blush tulips plus pillar candles in glass. The look was soft and romantic and full of candlelight.

Check out the 5 star review from the bride:

Karin said...
"Jolie was a wonderful person to work with leading up to and on my wedding day. She even advocated for my vision, the vision we talked about when well intentioned friends would take over decision making. She's responsive, thoughtful, and easy to work with no matter the budget. Jolie was a recommendation from a friend and I am so beyond thrilled with the results."
