Alexandra & Hayden- Westover Plantation Wedding in Charles City, Virginia

Alexandra & Hayden- Westover Plantation Wedding in Charles City, Virginia

Alexandra and Hayden had the most beautiful and joyous wedding day at Westover Plantation, in Charles City, Virginia. The plantation is situated right on the water, and thy have the most beautiful grounds and gardens you can walk through, and a lovely horse stable, right near where the sailcloth tent was situated. The very first time I talked to Ali, I knew we would have an amazing time working together- she and Luciana, with Luxe and Luna Event Design, had dreamed up a mauve and dusty rose wedding design, with lots of thoughtful and unique details. With their wedding being at the end of March, there were SO many gorgeous early springtime blooms available, including hellebore, garden roses, lisianthus, lilac, sweet pea, and more!

Stephanie & Tom- Inn at Westwood Farm Charlottesville Wedding!

Stephanie & Tom- Inn at Westwood Farm Charlottesville Wedding!

Stephanie and Tom had a sunshine-filled, joyous wedding day at a new venue to me- the Inn at Westwood Farm, near Charlottesville. It was the most charming bed and breakfast, nestled in the rolling hills of Virginia, and the property was absolutely lovely- perfect for an intimate outdoor wedding! The very first time I talked to Stephanie, she described her wedding as being southern-inspired, with a peach, light blue and white color palette, and I just loved working with her to bring her vision to life! Stephanie's bouquet was full of the best springtime blooms, including garden roses, lilac, ranunculus, tweedia and more, paired with greenery, and it was the perfect compliment to her beautiful wedding day look! The ceremony focal point was our classic wooden arbor, with a natural floral arrangement on the top and cascading down to both sides, and it was filled with coordinating blooms, including delphinium and garden roses, with natural greenery like blackberry and honeysuckle vine, and more! The reception area was outside, with lovely industrial-style exposed farm tables, string lights and wooden planter boxes filled with blooms for an intimate and natural feel. Their wedding day was photographed by Corrin Jasinski Photography who did such a wonderful job, and scroll to the end of this post for a list of all the vendors who brought Stephanie and Tom's wedding day to life- and enjoy! :)

Maegan & Andrew- Early Mountain Vineyard March Wedding!

Maegan and Andrew enjoyed a lovely wedding day, at one of the most beautiful wedding venues ever, Early Mountain Vineyard, in Charlottesville. Their early March wedding was filled with cozy, romantic details, as a perfect way to close out the winter season, and Early Mountain is such a beautiful spot for a winter wedding, with the two roaring fireplaces and twinkling candlelight. Their wedding ceremony and reception were inside, and the simple, yet elegant style of design, filled with neutral flowers and greenery, that Maegan was drawn to, was an absolutely beautiful compliment to the space! Centerpieces were low arrangements filled with lots of textured white flowers and greenery, and the head table was designed with a eucalyptus greenery garland lining the middle, with pops of blooms throughout!

French Blue Southern Wedding Inspiration with Hope Taylor Photography

Courtney Inghram Hope Taylor Photography Workshop Styled Shoot Richmond Virginia

Last month, I was so excited to design the flowers for Hope Taylor Photography's workshop styled shoot, with some of my favorite vendor friends (who also happen to be my friends in real life!!) It was SUCH a fun couple of days, filled with lots of laughter, hugs and hard work, and I love the way this French Blue Southern Wedding editorial came together for the workshop! I don't typically get to design with a blue color palette, so I was really excited to challenge myself and work to bring out more blue hues in the flowers, and those anemones with the dark navy centers were the stars of the show!! Using light and dark blue shades brought out a more dramatic contrast in the flowers, and I also hand-dyed the silk runner/draping piece for the arch, and the silk ribbon streamers in coordinating colors to match the shoot aesthetic! I love being able to design flowers for shoots for my photographer friends workshops, because the styled shoots always have such a great purpose behind them- teaching other wedding photographers how to take better photos and how to hone in on their photography skills! I also love designing flowers for these workshops because of the incredible vendors I am honored to work alongside!! :) Kat, of Dear Sweetheart Events did such an amazing job planning the shoot, and the neutral space within the Paisley & Jade warehouse in Richmond, Virginia was the perfect setting! Hope of course did an incredible job capturing all the details and teaching all of her lovely attendees, and I had the absolute best time hanging out with them for the day! I could go on and on about how the entire day was a dream, but I know you want to see the photos now, so enjoy!! Scroll to the bottom to see all the participating vendors!

Historic-Post-Office-Hampton-Virginia-Wedding-Photographer-207.jpg

Makenna and Mitchell had a lovely wedding day at one of my favorite Hampton Roads wedding venues, the Historic Post Office, in Hampton, Virginia! Their December wedding had a winter-y and romantic feel, and Makenna envisioned burgundy, white, blush and navy flowers, with greenery, and the contrast looked perfect against the emerald green bridesmaid dresses, and paired with her gorgeous wedding gown! The bouquets were full of garden roses, anemones, ranunculus, privet berries and more winter blooms, with a variety of textured greenery. The ceremony focal point was a beautiful wooden cross, with flowers in the center, which was such a special and unique touch to their intimate wedding! The day was photographed by Molly Lichten Photography who did such a wonderful job, and I also loved working alongside Hannah Hildebrandt Events, who coordinated all the details perfectly! Check out the end of this post for a list of all the vendors who brought Makenna and Mitchell's wedding day to life- and enjoy! :)

Charleston, South Carolina Photography Workshop Styled Shoot!

Charleston, South Carolina Photography Workshop Styled Shoot!

Back in the fall of 2017, I was so excited to be asked to be a part of Callie Lindsey's Photography workshop styled shoot, in one of my favorite places in the world... Charleston, South Carolina!! I love being able to design flowers for shoots for my photographer friends workshops, because the styled shoots always have such a great purpose behind them- teaching other wedding photographers how to take better photos and how to hone in on their photography skills! Hannah, of Hannah Marie Events, planned the shoot, and we decided to play on the natural beauty of the Lowcountry and use neutral white flowers, with pops of magnolia foliage to accentuate all the southern charm that Charleston exudes. The shoot was set outdoors, beneath the lovely draping Spanish Moss, and all the details were just gorgeous! Scroll to the bottom to see all the participating vendors, and enjoy! :)
