Holiday Decorating!

We've been busy little elves designing an amazing number of trees, mantles, and porches for our clients! But we didn't forget our own humble abode. Instead we used ornaments and elements from events past to create an eclectic, but lovely tree!

Is that a bouquet holder? Yup!

We added pods, masks, and willow balls too. My motto is, if it's leftover, spray it gold and put it on the tree!

Happy Holidays!

Real Wedding: Gillian & Jon (pro photos)

These images sum up the loveliness (inside and out) of this couple. All images Echard Wheeler Photography.

Market umbrellas created shade for the late day ceremony.


Gillian is so chill that she said do anything except sand and shells. Here is what we came up with.

For Gillian we combined white hydrangea, green cymbidiums, freesia, stephanotis, and phaelenopsis orchids.

Maids carried bouquets of blue hydrangea, green cymbidiums, and thistle which was then wrapped with aspidistra leaves.

Sneak Peek: Seaside Chic

Jon & Gillian were married at Aqua at Bay Creek Marina! The wedding ceremony took place on the lawn overlooking the bay, and the reception above the restaurant. I cannot wait to introduce you to this couple and the wedding team!

Here is a look at the design that we created. It has a decidedly seaside feel without sand or sea shells (a request from the bride).

Nile lamour linen was our canvas and we painted with grapewood vine (looks like driftwood), air plants, succulents, reindeer moss, and phaelenopsis orchids. Then we set it aglow with tons of candles at varying heights!

For the ceremony we used capiz shell, manzanita, hydrangea, thistle, hanging amaranthus and cymbidiums in a palette of blues and greens - but more on that next time.

I took these pictures but we will have pro pics from the talented Echard Wheeler in the coming weeks - so check back!

Real Wedding: Lesley & Subin, Pt. I

Lesley and Subin's destination wedding in Colonial Williamsburg was a feast for the senses. But more on the details later. Soak in their loveliness.

First sight.

The Christian ceremony combined elements of the bride's Native American heritage and the groom's Indian traditions.

Isha Foss Events was brought in for Wedding Month Management but it quickly grew into partial planning and design. I loved working with these gracious families. Wait until you see all the details!
