Makenna & Mitchell- Historic Post Office Wedding

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! :)

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! :)

Southern Wedding Inspiration at the Historic Post Office!

I was honored to design the flowers for the most recent Audrey Rose Photography workshop, hosted in Hampton, Virginia at the Historic Post Office! When Audrey and Kelsey first asked me to be a part of this shoot, they described it as southern, neutral and full of lush greenery and gorgeous details, and I was SO excited to be part of the vendor team! Every single detail was absolutely exquisite, and I love the way that their design came to life so beautifully! The attendees at the workshop were definitely in for a visual treat, and I'm sure they all enjoyed learning from Audrey as they photographed the shoot. The Historic Post Office is one of my very favorite venues to work at, and I love how it lends a perfectly neutral backdrop to the photos, and is so elegant and classy! Some of the flowers I included in the designs were Japanese sweet pea, hellebore, garden roses, ranunculus, Jasmine vine, foraged dogwood, and pops of magnolia leaves. Enjoy these gorgeous photos by Audrey and see below for the list of all the participating vendors!
