I really pride myself on understanding what flower types and design styles would be the right fit just by chatting with a bride a few times. For their wedding, the florals were to be elegant and glamorous, but also fun with pops of pink and coral. Elegant and glamorous calls for soft fluffy flower types – my favorite! Garden Roses, Peonies, Hydrangeas, Roses, Lisianthus, Stock Flowers are great for elegant and glamorous looks! There’s something about Ally that makes me think of a Southern Belle. I think it’s not only her sweet, polite demeanor, but an elegance about her that is timeless – and she’s absolutely gorgeous, to boot! I know that might seem like the most random personality comment ever, but there’s something about my understanding my bride’s personalities that helps me really understand what flowers and colors FIT their wedding personality.
I just love a fabulous floral backdrop! Makes for awesome wedding portraits!
Those peonies couldn’t have been a more perfect match for those dresses! Ally & Vitaly booked Stevenson Ridge for their ceremony space only, but they still wanted to make sure to really dress up the ceremony backdrop… which of course is always a great idea in my book! I think the ceremony space often gets overlooked because of the whole ‘we won’t be there long’ idea. So, I was so happy when Ally’s momma said she wanted to create a wow piece for the backdrop!
Their reception was held at the Silk Mill in downtown FredericksburgI just can’t get enough of these images — the coloring of the gowns with the bouquets is just so fabulous! and we can’t forget flowers for the pup! Vendors
