Amanda & D'Angelo- Morais Vineyard Wedding

Amanda & D'Angelo- Morais Vineyard Wedding

Amanda and D'Angelo were married on a sunshine-filled July day,  at Morais Vineyard near Fredericksburg, Virginia! The very first time I talked with Amanda, I just KNEW we would have such a blast working together!! She is a very talented wedding photographer, and she had so many creative and unique ideas to make her and D'Angelo's wedding so special!! Amanda and D'Angelo's wedding was filled with white and blush florals, including the most dreamy peonies that filled Amanda's bouquet, the ceremony flowers and the centerpieces, and they smelled AMAZING. A huge fluffy peony bouquet was Amanda's "must-have", and I was so excited for her to see her beautiful bouquet once she arrived to the venue that day!  Their whole day was filled with FUN details, like having a Kona Ice Truck for guests after the ceremony (such a good idea), huge balloons that spelled out "Boyce", welcomed guests to Morais Vineyards, and Amanda's stunning outfit change into a gorgeous rose gold dress during the reception! And of course, being a dog mom myself, I loved that Amanda and D'Angelo included their 3 dogs in the festivities as well. All the amazing details of their day were captured perfectly by the sweet and talented Hope Taylor Photography and I loved being able to work alongside her and an awesome team of friends who all work together frequently, which always makes wedding days run so smoothly! Check out the end of this post for the vendors who each played a part in Amanda and D'Angelo's wedding day- and enjoy! :)

The Wedding Florist Booking Process- What You Should Know

The Wedding Florist Booking Process- What You Should Know

I recently did an Instagram story series on the topic of booking your wedding florist, and I was BLOWN AWAY by all the responses I got from brides and fellow wedding vendors that tuned in! Since Instagram stories expire, I thought I should share my thoughts in a more "permanent" way by blogging about my own booking process process and I would love to hear others feedback as well!

Morgan & Ryan- Big Spring Farm Wedding!

Morgan & Ryan- Big Spring Farm Wedding!

Morgan and Ryan were married on a gorgeous June day, outdoors at Big Spring Farm in Lexington, Virginia! From the very first consultation I had with Morgan, I immediately knew I had found a new friend- we have so much in common! :) I absolutely loved being able to work with her (and her sweet mom) throughout the planning process, and by the time the big day had arrived, I felt a little sad knowing that we didn't have anymore flower meetings scheduled so we could catch up!! Morgan and Ryan's wedding was filled with romantic pastel colors and soft textures, and I loved being able to use some of my favorite flowers for their wedding, like peonies, ranunculus, lavender, eucalyptus, and garden roses (and all the flowers smelled AMAZING!!!) Morgan's one big request was having white anemones in her bridal bouquet, so when I got them delivered that week and they came in so perfectly that I just HAD to share a picture with her before the big day! She was so excited, and I just knew her bouquet would be a new favorite of mine!! And the bridesmaid bouquets full of eucalyptus and white fluffy peonies paired perfectly with their mismatched, but still coordinating dresses in shades of blush and lavender- so obsessed!!! All the sweet details of their day were captured perfectly by Kimberly Florence Photography, and I loved seeing all the thoughtful touches that Ryan and Morgan had incorporated into their wedding day! Big Spring Farm was the perfect setting for their whimsical and fun wedding, and I am SO excited to be able to share some of the details here! Check out the end of this post for the vendors who all played a part in M&R's wedding day- and enjoy! :)

Celia & Clint- Historic Post Office Blush Summer Wedding

Celia & Clint- Historic Post Office Blush Summer Wedding

Celia and Clint's beautiful blush wedding was definitely a highlight of my year! When I first talked with Celia, I just KNEW that we were going to be friends, and I absolutely loved working with her throughout the design process! She is so upbeat and cheerful, and when she told me she was a nurse I could just see her sharing her sweet smile and positivity with all of her patients each day!! Celia dreamed of feminine and blush florals, full of garden roses, peonies, eucalyptus, ranunculus and more!! Her bridal bouquet was so fluffy and perfect, and I loved that she wanted blush silk ribbon streamers for each bridesmaid bouquet (and hers) to complete the look!! The Historic Post Office was the perfect setting for Celia and Clint's wedding, and from when I first saw Celia and her girls sipping on some bubbly in the bridal suite, to when they were preparing to walk down the aisle, the whole day was full of smiles and laughter!! I even got to take a photo with the bride, as I gave Celia her bouquet!! (Scroll to the end for that!) Each detail was so beautiful and I absolutely loved Celia's gorgeous wedding dress- she looked like a princess!! I always LOVE working with Audrey Rose Photography, and she captured each moment throughout the day perfectly! I was so honored that Celia and Clint chose me to design their flowers, and I absolutely loved working with them both! Enjoy these photos and see the end of the post for all the vendors involved! :)
