Bristow Manor Golf Club was transformed into a wedding wonderland for Devin and James. Although the day threatened thunderstorms, the atmosphere was charged with anticipation. The bouquets in pink and white were perfect foils for the french blue of the lace dresses and a wonderful accent to the lush bridal bouquet. A combination of high and low centerpieces filled out the chiffon draped reception space creating a wonderfully intimate atmosphere.
Flowers: Duchess de Nemours and Festiva Maxima peonies, Playa Blanca, Sweet Akito and Shimmer standard roses, Pink and White Majolica spray roses, lisianthus, Perle von Nürnbergg echiveria, trachelium, stock, carnations, hydrangea and honeysuckle
Bridal white was the rule of the day for Meghan and Cory - what a beautifully classic palette. Fully bloomed white Akito roses for all the bouquets, hydrangea and super select ruffled white carnations in the centerpieces. The wedding arch was a combination of all of these, with English ivy and Italian ruscus creating a beautiful green backdrop.

The farm of a family friend - Oak Creek Farm- in Culpeper County was the perfect spot for Kelsey and Mike to say "I do" and then dance the night away. The palette was all autumn, all about the rich abundance and super saturated color. Joyful.
Fort Myer Old Post Chapel was the setting for the ceremony for Erika and Ryan, the reception followed at the grand Army Navy Country Club in Arlington. Snow white was the color for this picture perfect day in May, offset beautifully by a rich french blue. In a true celebration of spring, the flowers included an elite selection of blooms from US farms, highlighted by Virginia growers, including our very own garden.
