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!

Real Wedding Flowers: Peach/Orange/Coral/Yellow

The bride chose cornflower blue for her wedding at the Norfolk Botanical Garden and reception at the Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront. She wanted accents of peach, coral, orange, and yellow and fell in love with Ad Rem tulips that she saw in our studio. Here are the flowers that we designed for her event.

Real Wedding: Rachael & Sam, Pt. II

We loved working with this family for their wedding at the Chrysler Museum of Art. They were so gracious and the team of wedding professionals was outstanding. Please enjoy these images from David Schwartz Photography.

We hung the couple's escort card coasters from our potted manzanita branches. We carried that element through to these crystal adorned pieces with orchid accents to highlight the beautiful staircase.

They loved the chuppah that we created for them and we were able to move it inside for the reception.

Lighting from Pike Media Resource completed the look.

Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Thanks for stopping by!

Real Wedding: Rachael & Sam, Pt. I

Rachael & Sam were married at the Chrysler Museum of Art in Mary's Garden. A reception followed in Huber Court. We were honored to create the design for this event and very grateful to their coordinator, Pearl Taylor, for bringing them to us.

Rachael is stunning in this beautiful image from David Schwartz Photography. We provided orchids for the bride and her maids to wear in their hair.

Peonies are significant to the bride and we were thrilled to be able to get them so late in the season. Bouquets consisted of hydrangea, peonies, garden roses, and cymbidium orchids. Men wore cymbidiums with ruscus, wrapped in black ribbon.

We really 'clicked' when the couple started to talk about wanting a very natural chuppah. I had purchased some "poles" that were actually dried vines (the kind Tarzan would have used) and was hoping to use them for just this purpose. We added curly willow and cymbidiums for a simple but lush look.

Fuchsia phaelenopsis orchids and gold chiavari chairs with lime bengaline cushions, gave a hint of the reception decor.

Check back for more details from this wedding.

Delaina & Carleton were married at their family church in Norfolk. A wedding reception followed at the Historic Chamberlin Hotel.

We created the colorful bouquets using the bride's favorite flower - stargazer lilies - which matched the bridesmaid's dresses perfectly.

We also created candelabra arrangements of stargazers, hydrangeas, stock, and roses, which lent themselves both to the formal setting and summer season.

Isha Foss Events provided Wedding Day Coordination in addition to floral design.

We wish the couple a long and happy life together!
