It’s not every day I get to design flowers for a stunning, intimate St. Patrick’s Day party, so I was excited to design for this elegant and fun dinner back in March! The couple hosted the party at their home in Poquoson, Virginia, and it was a gorgeous venue with modern decor, beautiful pieces of art, and waterfront views. Luciana, with Luxe and Luna Events, designed and planned, and she envisioned a color palette of shades of copper, whites, black, and light greenery, with a pop of gold for a sophisticated feel.Read More
Kelly and Drew had a gorgeous wedding day at the Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club in Virginia Beach, Virginia! The spectacular, nautical waterfront venue was the perfect scenic backdrop for their outdoor ceremony. Kelly and Drew envisioned a classic, neutral color palette with shades of white and blush and lots of dramatic greenery. To bring their vision to life, we used blush ranunculus, anemones (the bride’s favorite flower), and a mix of garden roses, as well as olive and eucalyptus greenery. The effect was simply stunning! The bouquets were tied off with our Cappuccino silk ribbon, which perfectly complemented Kelly’s amazing wedding dress.
To really make a statement in the reception space, we used more ranunculus and garden roses, paired with rich olive and eucalyptus leaves, to design lush floral centerpieces surrounded by votives for a romantic, candlelit effect. It all turned out gorgeous! Kelly and Drew’s wedding day was photographed by Molly Scott Photography, who did an amazing job, and I loved working with the staff at the Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club! Kelly and Drew are just the sweetest couple - I was honored and overjoyed to be part of their special day! Scroll to the bottom of this post for a list of vendors who brought their wedding day to life. Enjoy! :)Read More

This dreamy Charlottesville, Virginia wedding was one of my FAVORITES this year!!! When Jessica and I first talked about her organic, gold-infused, candlelit, winter wedding at Early Mountain Vineyards near Charlottesville, I knew it was going to be absolutely breathtaking! Jessica was the sweetest bride to work with, and being an interior designer herself, has impeccable taste and an amazing vision for her wedding- I literally was counting the days until her gorgeous day!! She dreamt of a romantic soiree, with lots of lush greenery and pops of white flowers!! SWOON! To compliment that, I used anemones, white garden roses, veronica, ranunculus and a variety of greenery, including eucalyptus! This was such a wonderful way to end my 2016 wedding season, and I truly enjoyed every minute of their wedding, including working with an amazing vendor team! Enjoy these photos, taken by Audrey Rose Photography and scroll to the bottom to see the rest of the dream team that brought Jessica and John's wedding to life!Read More
