This feature in Baltimore Bride Magazine is hitting stands on Dec 22 and I could not be more excited to be "in print". Soft greenery, garden roses and dahlias added romance and warmth to this intimate micro-wedding, and my oldest daughter will be making her print debut as “the flower girl.”
Carnegie Institution for Science is an elegant venue in Washington, DC with a uniquely circular ceremony/reception space and a long, stately staircase. To warm up the space, Elizabeth and Michael went with a fun floral palette of sage green, cream, lilac and blush with deep berry accents. We loved adorning the staircase with a lush and romantic vine of trailing greenery. Greenery vines were added to accent the escort card and sweetheart tables and filled in with blooms and lavender. Sweetpeas and garden roses added a delicate accent to the cake, and loads of candles created a sweet, romantic ambiance.
The Cloisters castle, right outside of Baltimore, is steeped in history and has a distinctly medieval vibe. Fun fact: It is actually where Will Smith and Jada Pinkett got married. They are marriage goals, right? This past May, it rained almost every single Saturday and this May Saturday was no exception. Kathryn and Arun took it all in stride and our team hustled in the rain to perfect their lush ceremony arch filled with greenery and spring blooms.
Spirea and campanula provided the perfect spring accents to Kathryn's cascading, asymmetrical bouquet filled with white peonies and fluffy garden roses. The couple gave us permission to go wild with the two mantle focal pieces and we had a blast designing and installing them. The reception space was filled with a lush garland of herbs and blooms and trailing candles for added romance.
