    Bow Ties & Bubbly Wedding Bridal Show

    January 9th, 2015

    Hope everyone enjoyed a nice relaxing holiday and is having a great start to 2015! We started our year off with an awesome bridal show at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club in Stevensville, MD! It was an honor to be asked to design the breezway with Lauren Niles from Lauren Niles Events , and the fabulous girls from 2Hands Studio . We were given the task of tying together everything from the china and linens, to the boat bar and sailboats, with one of this years hottest colors; dark raspberry.

    Our overall theme was romantic costal which is perfect for the Beach Club. Driftwood was a key feature, which lucky for me, I was able to combine two obessions, driftwood and peonies! We wanted it to look freshly washed up from the ocean, but instead of seaweed and other not so beautiful things that wash up, we swapped florals in their place. The beautiful “Sara Red” peony was our inspiration and it was a beauty. We accented those with Ecuadorean roses, star of Bethlemhem, raspberry astible from Holland, Dutch tulips and tons of hydrangeas! The stunning garland was handmade in our shop by one of our talented designers and it was made of four different types of eucalyptus. It has an incredibly soft scent that filled the room!

  • Cedar Ridge Community Church Barn Wedding

    Today’s couple was sent to us from our favorite planner, Angie Hilz, from AJK Events! The groom is a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Annapolis and we sure had lots to talk about other than the wedding. Their consultation came one day before the Polar Vortex, and 12 inches of snowfall! Speaking of their consultation, they were just the sweetest, and held hands through the entire thing!

    Every now and then we get a groom with bigger opinions than his bride, and this was one of those cases. He just kept telling me that he wanted lots of fragrance, that the smell of flowers in a room just made him happy and he wanted to be able to smell them before he saw them. And when the time came for him to see them, he wanted to SEE them! He was wanting a big impact so we agreed to mix the pastels that the bride wanted with the bright orange and fuchsia that the groom wanted! The results were a stunner!

    The setting for their wedding was in the beautiful rolling hills of Montgomery County, MD. Their church, Cedar Ridge Community Church, has this gorgeous lawn and a wonderful barn that housed the reception and dancing.

    We used lots of stock, carnations and sweet smelling baby’s breath for their big day! By mixing all those scents it created an intense floral smell that was still soft and sweet to match them!

    I adored the simplicity of their ceremony that was accented with bundles of baby’s breath galore! And the weatherman couldn’t have asked for a better day! It was cool, with a soft breeze just strong enough to get the ribbon blowing. It was really beautiful!

    Westin Hotel Annapolis, Maryland Wedding

    July 1st, 2014

    We were so lucky to be a part of this incredible cultural wedding, and to work with a bride as amazing as Anneke! She really gave us the professional freedom to select the color palette we thought would complement her attire (more about that in a second) and the feeling of the day best.

    Anneke wore a bridal sari, and my goodness it was breathtaking! Her dress was made for her wedding day in India which presented quiet the challenge to find the perfect mix of flowers to complement it. With a deep berry fuchsia stock, purple dendrobium orchids, and Picasso calla lilys, we were able to bring out the amazing color and texture of her Sari.

    Here is a little blurb about the background behind the bridal sari- The attire that a bride wears on her wedding day is deeply connected with the customs and traditions of the family and the community to which she belongs. It is important to understand the local culture to appreciate the finer aspects of the bridal dress. Accessories or jewelry a bride wears has a meaning and significance to it. It is lovely to see the bride decked up in bridal finery. Lot of work goes behind the grandeur of the wedding sari. Most Indian bridal wedding saris are luxurious and are made from silk inter-fused with gorgeous gold thread work.

    The couple also exchanged wedding flower garlands. When Indian couples marry in a traditional wedding, they give one another long floral necklaces in a ceremony called Jaimala, also known as the exchange of the garlands. The Jaimala symbolizes the couple’s respect for each other and their promise to accept one another. Wedding garlands are made of vibrantly colored blooms strung tightly together for maximum visual impact and are a colorful, sweet-smelling part of the Indian wedding.

    It was for sure one of the most vibrant and bold weddings we have had the pleasure of doing! Take a look at these stunning photos below by the ever wonderful Emily Chastain.

  • Annapolis Marriott Waterfront Wedding

    flowing with personalized touches and sweet moments, take a few tips from Zara and Tyler. Their amazing Annapolis Marriott Waterfrontwedding was completely tailor-made for them and it was such a blessing to be able to be a part of it! The mix of orange, white and green florals were the perfect pop against the traditional white and navy backdrop. And the mason jars, adorable. I know that I can’t even do this wedding justice with words, so take a look at the gorgeous photos sent over from Kirsten Marie Photography!
