Emily and Colter were married on a gorgeous spring day at the Foundry Golf Club in Powhatan, Virginia! The venue was the perfect place for a romantic outdoor wedding, with its historic stone building and lovely garden surroundings - such a gorgeous backdrop for bridal portraits! For their wedding, Emily and Colter envisioned a sophisticated color palette of blush and gold with lush natural greenery. To bring their vision to life, we used lots of peonies, garden roses, and ranunculus, along with beautiful eucalyptus greenery. The combination of flowers smelled incredible! Bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids were tied off with our hand-dyed silk ribbon in Playa Blanca; the flowing ribbons looked amazing against the beautiful blush bridesmaid dresses. Emily’s beautiful lace wedding gown stole the show, however, and her floral hairpiece was the perfect accent. She was a stunning bride!Read More
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

I’m so excited to share a recap of the Small Business and Floral Design Workshop I hosted in April! Caroline and Jenna from Bloom Fresh Flowers in Alexandria, Virginia, traveled in for an entire day devoted to specifically diving into their business!
After getting to know each other over breakfast and coffee, we got started with the workshop content. We discussed how to market your floral design business, book clients, create design proposals, and more! We planned out a strategy for Caroline and Jenna by discussing the long-term goals for Bloom Fresh Flowers and breaking them down into manageable steps. Specifically, we talked about streamlining their current processes, finding more ideal clients, and ways to invigorate their marketing and online presence! After a break for lunch, we had some fun designing bouquets and centerpieces! Sarah Vanderford Photography was there to capture some candid shots of us working, as well as our gorgeous final designs, and I have loved looking at the #courtneyinghramworkshop hashtag to see how they are using their images!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!
