Spring is really a lovely time for a wedding.  Hopefully the weather cooperates, the bride beams, and everyone is happy, happy, happy!

So far this season, we have done two complete weddings and the bridal bouquet and corsages for a third one.

This bride’s friend was helping out by doing most of the flowers for the wedding and reception. She asked me to do the corsages, boutonnieres, and her bouquet.  Her color palate was white/cream/peach/coral.   We ended up ordering some garden roses from California along with some ranunculas in her colors.   Thus her bouquet——–


We also had another wedding that day.  This bride wanted blush, cream and white as her main colors.   Her bouquet was simply blush peonies from California—perfect.

When the locally sourced flowers came in, the pink was hardly a blush but we made it work.   This is one of the two wreaths on the doors to the church.

Here is the entrance to the country club where the reception was held.  The canopy poles were wrapped with mixed green garlands and twinkle lights.   The door had a white and pink hydrangea wreath.

In the lobby, this arrangement and candle assortment greeted guests.  As usual, sorry for the crummy pic 🙁

Here is one of the seating tables.  The cloths were a blush color.   We also used alot of mercury glass mixed with clear glass and silver.

This arrangement was on a sideboard in a hallway which held family wedding photos.

Our most recent wedding was nautical themed and was held at the Hampton Yacht Club.  Everything was navy, white and coral with oyster shells and driftwood thown in.

This is a sideboard located in the entrance to the dining room.  There was a book of Virginia photographs that guests signed as well as photos of the bride and groom as children.  We even had an old float to add to the mix.  On the wall was a cute banner that one of the bride’s friends had made.


Doing weddings is mostly fun, but it can be stressful knowing things may happen that are out of your control.   You just have to learn to roll with the punches!
