Purple Centerpiece Flowers

I created this centerpiece for the Lesner Inn Open House back in February and just ran across the image. This is a composition of 3 cylinder vases ranging from 15" - 22" in height - each containing variations of tulips, freesia, delphinium, and stock in shades of blues and purples. Complementary cylinders of floating candles and petals make for a full tablescape. Votives complete this affordable, and modern look.

Sneak Peek: Plum & Chocolate w/ Yellow Wedding

Take a look at this wedding reception at Main Street Station in Richmond, VA. The urban, yet upscale location lent itself perfectly to the design for this wedding. The bride came to us with a color palette of plum, chocolate, and golden yellow. We took it from there.

The couple is gorgeous and amazing! And I loved working with them. I can't wait to share all the fun details that they put into this wedding. But we'll have to wait for the professional photos - so please check back!
Thanks for visiting!

Real Wedding: Red/White/Yellow Wedding Flowers

The bride chose red, yellow, and white for her wedding reception at the Cavalier on the Hill. She had always dreamed of celebrating her marriage there and wanted to match the decor of the historic hotel. She also wanted a lighter summer feel since her wedding was in July.

She chose Roses, Gerbers, and Calla Lilies for herself and a small clutch of yellow callas for her maids.

Sneak Peek: Helene & Carlo

Helene & Carlo's wedding at St. Joan of Arc, and reception at The Williamsburg Lodge were full of cultural traditions.

During the ceremony they incorporated the Filipino traditions of cord, veil, candle and Arrhea (coins) as well as Taiwanese customs.  The couple surprised guests with a lion dance, and made paper cranes which hung from trees.

They changed into traditional garb for their first dance and guests received chopsticks as wedding favors.  It was fantastic and I had looked forward to it for a very long time.  I will share images from this amazing event as soon as I receive them.  My photos would not do it justice.

I shared images from this white wedding reception at the Chrysler Museum of Art.  The photos below from Christopher Patrick Photography are of the ceremony and portraits.  They speak for themselves.
