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.
Last Tuesday I had the pleasure of working with Jack Rose Dining Saloon and a marketing group out of Chicago to provide flowers for an intimate scotch tasting event. The event was held in the cozy balcony room of Jack Rose which features a stone fireplace along one wall and a bar along the facing wall with floor-to-ceiling windows and balcony space. The theme for the flowers was green and white with touches of burgundy and rich earthy textures. Some of the flowers used were succulents, kale, artichokes, hydrangea, kangaroo paw and scabiosa pods. The bar arrangements were designed in tall glass cylinders wrapped with dark ti leaves and the tables featured long and low arrangements in wood boxes and tiny burlap wrapped votive cups holding a single echeveria.
