Long-Awaited Return to IRL Weddings
The world is opening up again as we continue to crawl out of our hidey-holes and try to remember how to adult. I’m pretty certain I still own pants, they just may or may not fit these days. Like everything else, the look of weddings is taking on a new appearance. We are already a few years removed from the beginnings of a more experiential wedding trend, but this has morphed into a truly intimate look at the couples themselves. Happily, more couples are able to celebrate their love for each other in front of friends and family, and we can provide the perfect accents for that celebratory experience!
Our recent wedding on the roof of Rockville’s gorgeous VisArts building perfectly highlights the intimate feel of the bride and groom. With a robins-egg blue sky in the background, loose and flowing florals in lavender and cream conveyed a soft, romantic elegance reminiscent of a secret fairy grotto.
Since the bride is the focal point, this showstopper of a bouquet featured a cascading design filled with her favorite varietals including roses, hydrangea, dahlias, lisianthus, and anemones. Her bridesmaids carried similar arrangements in a more compact design with simple seeded eucalyptus accents to soften the look.
We took the head table florals away from traditional centerpieces and created a wildflower style garland full of flowing ruscus, wispy plumosa, and elegant silver dollar eucalyptus. Dotted throughout were delicate white lisianthus and elegant Ocean Song and Cool Water roses. Silver mercury votives added a sparkle and sheen to the tablescape. To create some visual dimension in the dining space, the tables alternated between elegant arrangements in footed revere bowls and simple greenery with lavender pillar candles and mercury votives.
The ceremony arch has become a ubiquitous “must have” for weddings these days and this understated trellis design with two asymmetrical arrangements is a stunningly romantic backdrop for our bride and groom. Roses and lisianthus in feminine lavender tones are mixed with fragile white anemones and fluffy hydrangea. By creating a flowing design with the greenery, the overall look has an organic garden feel that seems right out of a fairytale. The two stately aisle markers set the space beautifully for the bride to enter her enchanting garden.
So when you and your beau are ready to say those “I dos” let us help create the stellar day you have been envisioning (for quite some time, likely!) We’re here to take the myriad ideas you have collected and pull them together into a design that perfectly encapsulates everything about the love that you two share.
