Meghan & Zach- Norfolk Botanical Gardens Wedding

Meghan & Zach- Norfolk Botanical Gardens Wedding

Meghan and Zach had an absolutely beautiful wedding at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens, one of my favorite wedding venues in Hampton Roads! They were married on a rainy July day, but luckily with a great venue like the Botanical Gardens, their wedding ceremony was easily transferred indoors, and it was SO lovely! From the first time I talked with Meghan, I just knew we would be friends! She is a teacher, a puppy mom, and a lover of succulents, all some of my own favorite things too :) She envisioned neutral flowers, in shades of white with varying types of greenery and succulents. We used flowers like garden roses, veronica, stock, and more to give the bouquets and arrangements a textured, whimsical look. I also tied off their bouquets in textured grey silk ribbon streamers, and Meghan's bouquet was seriously one of my most favorite I've ever designed, and it smelled heavenly!! Their wedding day was photographed by Valerie Demo Photography,  who did such a great job, and I also loved working alongside by good friend, Sterling, of Sterling Dawn Events, who planned their wedding day!! Check out the end of this post for the vendors who each played a part in Meghan and Zach's wedding day- and enjoy! :)

Alyssa & Tyler- Chrysler Museum of Art Wedding

Alyssa and Tyler were married on a perfect June day at the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, Virginia! These two are the absolute sweetest, and I loved being able to work alongside them throughout the wedding planning process!! Alyssa and I actually met in high school chorus class, and I was SO honored when she reached out to me about her wedding! Tyler and Alyssa had a preppy, elegant wedding vision, with pops of navy, coral and gold as the focal colors, and I loved being able to utilize coral charm peonies- Alyssa's favorite blooms, for their wedding!! I was so thrilled to be their wedding florist, and I got to play with lots of my favorite flowers: garden roses, peonies, ranunculus, eucalyptus greenery and more! Alyssa seriously looked like a princess in her gorgeous fluffy dress, and her Maya Couture gown was definitely a new favorite of mine!! Jessica Ryan Photography captured their day beautifully, and the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk was the perfect backdrop for all their elegant and fun wedding day details! I just loved looking through all their gorgeous photos, and reminiscing about such a wonderful wedding day!! :) Enjoy these magical photos, and give some love to the vendor team who brought their wedding to life, below!

Kayla & Andrew's Chesapeake, Virginia Wedding!

Kayla & Andrew's Chesapeake, Virginia Wedding!

Kayla and Andrew were married on a beautiful October day last fall in Chesapeake, Virginia, and had the most lovely, whimsical wedding! Their color palette of mauve, white and blush was gorgeous, and one of my favorites of the year- it's so fun to work with more unique color palettes. Kayla wanted lots of textural blooms, like dahlias, ranunculus and scabiosa paired with romantic garden roses and eucalyptus greenery for the florals, and I adore the way they all looked at her wedding! :) Another fun part for me was making those adorable succulent boutonnieres- LOVE!! I loved working with these two sweethearts; they had such a lovely and heartfelt day. Enjoy these beautiful photos from Erin Daniel Photography, and be sure to show some love to the entire vendor team listed below!
