Carrie + Joe: Featured!

Carrie and Joe had the most beautiful September wedding at The Inn at Huntingfield Creek in Maryland. Their two shar peis wore floral collars, Carrie donned the most incredible BHLDN gown, and it was all captured by my talented friend Carly, owner of Two Spoons Photography. I am also thrilled to say that Carrie and Joe's wedding was featured on one of my favorite wedding blogs, A Practical Wedding, yesterday!

Winding down.

With my 2015 wedding season winding down, (6 more to go!) I'm starting to do a little reflecting on the past year, and making plans for next. Frequently, I find myself in disbelief that I have been able to work with such incredible clients, and have had the opportunity to work with so many of my favorite friends/fellow wedding vendors frequently.  I am a really lucky woman Theresa and Seth were married on October 10th in Richmond, Virginia. All photos by the incomparable Kate of Betty Clicker Photography.

Afterthought

Sometimes the things that are left- things that are often viewed as an afterthought- will surprise you with how lovely they prove themselves to be. At the end of an incredibly lovely (and challenging) double wedding weekend, the last thing I wanted to do when I got home was look at flowers. Then I had a flower blackout (I just get so overwhelmed with all of the beauty- I just kind of glaze over) and this guy was the result. The only goal was to not let these stems die in a bucket in my dark, unswept office. Turns out, these were anything but an afterthought.

Something A Little Different

Though "glamorous" isn't usually a word I would associate with myself, I am totally smitten with the results of a photo shoot from two weeks ago. Nikki Santerre, Glamour and Grace and I put together a Fine Art Bridal fashion editorial for Pretty Pear Bride, and I could not love the classic glamour we made together any more. I seriously cannot wait to share more from this editorial shoot! For now, a sneak peak.

February's Birthstones and Blooms

Last weekend we executed the latest installment of the Birthstones and Blooms collaboration that I'm working on with Carly of Two Spoons Photography and Brandon and Marita of Slingin' Pretty! February's birthstone is the amethyst and the month's flower is the Iris- both of which are traditionally associated with femininity. Of course, we wanted to kind of smash that apart, and dress a really handsome dude in some strong, classic pieces and give him a really ultra-huge boutonniere. Classically feminine in it's color palette, but taken to a WHOLE other level by our model, Mark. Marita of Slingin' Pretty has been making really gorgeous jewelry, so she let us include an amazing Amethyst pendant in this month's flowers from her new venture, Clear & Bound.

MAN FLOWERS (it's a new revolution I've decided to start) are my new favorite thing. I just need to convince some clients to be into it, too!

So please, without further ado, enjoy MAN FLOWERS!
