Brooke & Brett- Independence Golf Club Richmond Wedding

Brooke & Brett- Independence Golf Club Richmond Wedding

Brett and Brooke enjoyed the perfect June weather for their lovely wedding day at the Independence Golf Club, near Richmond, Virginia! Independence is such a beautiful venue, and golf course was such a beautiful and pristine location for the outdoor ceremony! Brooke and Brett were such a special couple for me to work with, since they are dear friends as well as clients! Brett went to college with my husband Jason, and even were roommates for a year, so it was an honor to be asked to be a part of their wedding by designing their flowers! These two are the definition of joyful- they exude happiness and love, and they are the type of people that you just always want to be around because hanging out with them lights you up! Their love for each other is so evident, and it was such a honor to witness them commit their lives to continue loving and serving each other! Their wedding vision was "bringing the outside in", and they wanted their guests to feel like they were dancing the night away under the stars outside, and we brought that to life in the reception space with whimsical greenery chandeliers and hanging glass terrariums and candles! With their wedding being in June, we used lots of peonies in the arrangements, as well as garden roses, ranunculus and eucalyptus greens! Brooke's and the bridesmaids bouquets were all filled with these blooms and they all smelled SO good! Brooke's wedding dress was absolutely beautiful, with the most exquisite lace detailing, and she paired it with a beautiful long veil, which was complimented by the light sky blue bridesmaid dresses- so pretty!! Their wedding day was photographed by Anna Kardos Photography, who did such a wonderful job, and we loved working with the amazing team at the Independence Golf Club for their wedding as well! Scroll to the end of this post for a list of all the vendors who brought Brooke and Brett's wedding day to life- and enjoy! :)

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!

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!

French Blue Southern Wedding Inspiration with Hope Taylor Photography

French Blue Southern Wedding Inspiration with Hope Taylor Photography

Last month, I was so excited to design the flowers for Hope Taylor Photography'sworkshop 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!!
