Farm to Wedding Flowers

I recently had the pleasure of attending a floral design workshop hosted by Kelly Shore of Petals by the Shore at Wollam Gardens in Jeffersonton, Virginia. Beth Caldwell was our amazing photographer for the day, and as you’ll see, despite the gale force winds, she captured some beautiful images. Honeysilks provided the ribbon, and our beautiful models, @x8jaclyn8x in the ivory gown and @namroszy was in the stunning Star Blue gown by KellyFaetanini.

As you’ll see from the photos of my work below, it was a nice step outside the typical wedding design workbook where garden roses and hydrangea hold court. Poppies, ranunculus, anemones, tulips, abelia, pennycress, viburnum, black cherry, birch - all grown within 300 feet of where we designed.

The foam free arch installation in the pavilion at Wollam had the additions of lilac and a double cherry blossom which truly emphasized the spring wedding inspiration. The left side of this ‘arch’ is actually freestanding and could be moved to your reception after the ceremony - wouldn’t that be gorgeous flanking your cake or sweetheart table?
