Carnegie Institution for Science is an elegant venue in Washington, DC with a uniquely circular ceremony/reception space and a long, stately staircase. To warm up the space, Elizabeth and Michael went with a fun floral palette of sage green, cream, lilac and blush with deep berry accents. We loved adorning the staircase with a lush and romantic vine of trailing greenery. Greenery vines were added to accent the escort card and sweetheart tables and filled in with blooms and lavender. Sweetpeas and garden roses added a delicate accent to the cake, and loads of candles created a sweet, romantic ambiance.
The Cloisters castle, right outside of Baltimore, is steeped in history and has a distinctly medieval vibe. Fun fact: It is actually where Will Smith and Jada Pinkett got married. They are marriage goals, right? This past May, it rained almost every single Saturday and this May Saturday was no exception. Kathryn and Arun took it all in stride and our team hustled in the rain to perfect their lush ceremony arch filled with greenery and spring blooms.
Spirea and campanula provided the perfect spring accents to Kathryn's cascading, asymmetrical bouquet filled with white peonies and fluffy garden roses. The couple gave us permission to go wild with the two mantle focal pieces and we had a blast designing and installing them. The reception space was filled with a lush garland of herbs and blooms and trailing candles for added romance.
One of our largest weddings of 2016 was this dream of a summer wedding at Army and Navy Club in Washington, DC. Blush dahlias, blushing bride protea and hydrangea and zinnias fresh from our garden were the floral highlights of the event, perfectly reflecting the sweet, elegant bride we worked with on the design. When I first spoke with Lois, our bride, I immediately loved her vision and couldn't wait to bring it to life. I especially loved the opportunity to create dramatic, raised centerpieces that included hanging amaranthus and a variety of garden roses.

This wedding just outside of Washington, DC in early May was marked by soggy weather. Thank goodness for Plan B! And luckily the rain let up just enough time for the couple to get some photos under their lush arbor with pops of coral, peach, blush and lots of greenery. We had so much fun building this arbor and adding potted begonias and herbs into the wedding ceremony and reception flowers.
