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! :)

French Blue Southern Wedding Inspiration with Hope Taylor Photography

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!!

As Seen on Style Me Pretty- Erika and Josh's Engagement Session!

Josh and Erika are two dear friends of mine, so when they asked me to design the flowers for their engagement session, I was honored! I also had the privilege of designing the flower arch and bouquet for Erika when Josh proposed over at Pippin Hill, in Charlottesville, (literally that day was a DREAM), and designing the flowers for Erika's bridesmaid brunch over at the Quirk Hotel (again, literally such a fun day), so when they asked me to be a part of this day, I just knew it would be perfect! Erika has impeccable style, and always looks like she stepped straight out of a magazine, and Josh looks so dapper in that suit jacket! They each have their own businesses, with Erika running Erika Lynn Photography, and Josh running Joshua Bryan Weddings, where he is filmmaker, but they frequently help each other out on wedding days, by assisting/second shooting, and you can just tell that they are such a unified team!! When they told me that Annamarie Akins was their wedding photographer, and that she was shooting their engagement session in Downtown Richmond, I was SO excited! And, Style Me Pretty loved their session too- so much so that it was featured on their blog this past summer! See the vendor credits at the end of this post for the full details, and check out the feature on Style Me Pretty here: https://www.stylemepretty.com/2017/07/05/modern-city-chic-engagement/

Enjoy this special blog post! :)

Quirk Hotel Colorful Bridal Bouquet!

Libby and Nick had such a sweet, colorful and cheerful wedding day! When Libby first contacted me about designing her bridal bouquet, she sent me a link to her Pinterest board, and I immediately was so excited! She wanted lots of COLOR, with bright pops of coral and peach, contrasted with lighter shades of blush and a hint of white, and I knew this would be the perfect bouquet to use some of my all-time favorite blooms, like coral charm peonies and Juliet garden roses! :) I absolutely love the way that Brett, from Brett Denfeld Photograpy captured all the special moments of Nick and Libby's wedding day, at the Quirk Hotel in Downtown Richmond, Virginia. The Quirk Hotel was the perfect setting for their intimate and sweet wedding! Enjoy some of my favorite shots from Brett! :)
