september wedding

DC War Memorial

This wedding might be my favorite design of 2016. The ceremony took place right on the National Mall at the DC War Memorial with a rooftop reception at Old Ebbitt Grill. The ceremony urns were huge (taller than me) and so much fun to make and perfect against the DC War Memorial (which totally dwarfed them). The less fun part was hauling them all through the city - parking was an issue!  I absolutely loved designing A's wedding bouquet, which included rich shades of fuchsia, blush, and ivory and ample foraged foliage. I particularly loved the hanging amaranthus and fuchsia dahlias. Looking through these pictures makes me swoon over A and M's sweetness. I love the the way they look at each other and was honored to be a part of their wedding day. As seen on Style Me Pretty.

Blush Autumn Wedding at Shadow Creek

It's always fun to return to a venue that we have flowered before. Familiarity with the space allows my imagination to run wild during the planning process. We loved filling the barn at Shadow Creek with lush greenery garlands, trailing votives, and blush dahlias. Alex's dress was stunning and she looked absolutely radiant. A perfect sunset capped off a beautiful ceremony.
