Favorite Ceremonies ...
Indoor Ceremony: Audrey & Chris at the Andrew Mellon Building
To give Chris & Audrey a more intimate ceremony feel in such a large magnificent space, we created a smaller space with a long billowing white draped aisle for Audrey, thanks to Fabrication events. Keeping it simple, we flanked the aisle-way with lush elevated designs atop shiny gold 32" urns.
Outdoor Ceremony: Christina & Justin at Springfield Manor
We loved Christina & Justin's decision to fore-go the traditional spot at Springfield for their ceremony and have it by the GORGEOUS fountain overlooking the mountains. This is a setting we'll never forget. The hand painted signs by the groom himself were the perfect touch.

BEST Styled Shoot
To end our summer we put together one of the craziest days we've had in a long time with Michael Bennett Kress Photography, Bowen Films, Marcela Urioste, Beauty N' the Bride, and more incredible vendors at the beautiful Rockland Estates in Hagerstown, MD. We created three different editorial styles: eclectic bridal succulent themed shoot, a west coast bohemian inspired bride & groom shoot, and a funky vintage maryland theme shoot filled with black-eyed-susans and lace. The goal was to think outside the box and create some completely unconventional looks. This is definitely in the books as our 2015 pride and joy project!
Bring on 2016!
Today we have a little seasonal wedding inspo that has us stuck in some serious wanderlust!
For you eclectic winter wed-heads, The Swedish Ice Hotel is the world's largest ice hotel,
even complete with it's own little ice church!
Just imagine the endless design ideas...fur, ice diamonds,
not to mention a step outside to enjoy the Northern Lights *SWOON*
Reflecting on some past designs inspired by this year's Pantones; Soft Rose Quartz & Cool Serenity blue... What do you think of this year's color(s) of the year?
Warm Rustic Thanksgiving
Warm your tables with lush rustic fall toned roses, berries, bittersweet vines,
seeded eucalyptus and accents of mokara orchids.
Paired with the perfect rusty red / marsala linen & gold chargers perhaps?
All the best things to accent that drool-worthy Roasted Turkey on the table. Who's ready to EAT!
We've got the ULTIMATE glam inspo (from a beautiful styled shoot with Howerton Wooten Events and Renee Hollingshead Photography.) This white phalenopsis orchid and turquoise tablescape would make the perfect Hanukkah statement for the holidays.
From shiny silver vases to the cutest blue glassware, let your family celebration sparkle and shine.
Modern Eclectic Christmas
A new spin on the traditional holiday season- make your Christmas decor funky and eclectic with new modern designs. Combine traditional elements like roses, dusty miller, and branches with not-so-traditional styles and designs, upright, sideways, longways, any which way you imagine! Greenery, various shades of reds, and dusty whites to go with some SUPER creative peppermint goodies we just can't get enough of...
Winter Wonderland New Years
Christina & Justin said "I Do" on a gorgeous warm summer day at Springfield Manor. Not only does this couple radiate the made-for-each other perfection but they are the most kind-hearted, down to earth people we've had the pleasure of working with. Not to mention they are quite the power-house pair, both endured grueling law school, & Justin got down on one knee the same week Christina passed the bar! These two know how to celebrate!

Talk about a keeper- this groom handmade all the signs used in their big day *SWOON*
A unique setting at Springfield, Christina & Justin chose the fountain as their ceremony spot, which we highlighted with two lush blush and white arrangements and lined their aisle with petals and flower clusters to accompany a soft romantic view.
Congratulations Christina & Justin!
A simply adorable ivory dress, handsome groom, and bright and
colorful end-of-summer bouquet made for a cute & quaint celebration for
Regina and Walter on the Georgetown waterfront.
After creating endless blush, creme and ivory designs all season, this rose, orange tulip, thistle, coxcomb and dahlia filled bouquet was JUST the creative breathe of fresh air we needed :)
We also can't get over these picture perfect red church doors! *Just add bubbles*

What's your favorite pink bloom?
August 22nd, 2015. Bright, beautiful, not a cloud in the sky & the Eastern Shore glistening at Chesapeake Bay Beach Club as Blake and Jen arrived for their big day. Beautiful bridesmaids in blue with bright pink bouquets, lush blush and white arrangements, a stunning bride in all white with her dapper groom in front of a romantic white Rolls Royce, with the perfect sparkler send-off ending! Thank you to Mark Hamilton of Hamilton Photography for these incredible shots.
We couldn't wait to share :)
