Real Wedding: Autumn Tones and Fall Fruits

We were so excited when Andrea asked us to provide the floral for her wedding at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. She had chosen gray for her wedding party attire and wanted berry colored accents and the warmth of autumn - with fruit!


For the bride we created a hand-tied bouquet of Akito roses, white mini calla lily, and Snowberry. We wrapped the stems in white satin and added a pearl cuff.

Bridesmaids carried Hot Lady and Hot Princess roses, Pink Persuasion and Purple Heart mini calla lilies, Safari Sunset leucodendron, hypericum berries, and a collar of Ti leaves.

For the ceremony we dressed our iron arch in fresh curly willow and accented with a combination of lilies, roses, celosia, greens, and amaranthus. Hanging votives added the finishing touch. The arch was flanked by our urns which held the same flowers as the arch. The aisle was strewn with rose petals.

We used our copper sheer vine linen in the cocktail hour. A lantern, curly willow, hydrangea, grapes, and a Sumatra lily complete the setting.

Berry colored linens, Sumatra lilies, Cherry Brandy and Hot Lady roses, fresh apples, red and Concord grapes and Bombay celosia worked with the gray and added the warmth of Autumn.

Real Wedding: Helene & Carlo featured on Wedding Nouveau!

You may remember Helene & Carlo's wedding posted here on our blog. But check out more of the beautiful details on Wedding Nouveau - A Style Guide for Intercultural Brides! Read more of the back story about how this beautiful couple combined Filipino and Taiwanese traditions to create a stunning wedding all their own.

We were honored to be a part of the event and here is what the couple had to say:

Thank you and your team so much for making our day run as smoothly as possible. Major “crashes” were reduced to mere “bumps” in the road because of your hard work. You helped us create the vision we wanted and more importantly, allowed the rest of my family to just sit back and enjoy the day. We were impressed at your attention to our needs and worries, and how quickly you always responded when we called you frantically. Thank you for being a part of this important chapter in our lives!
