Peach & Canary: Heather and John's Wedding at The Carriage House at Rockwood Park

Heather's flowers were total eye candy, and so much fun to make! Heather carried all white open peonies and white stephanotis blooms with pearl pins.

I absolutely LOVED the bridesmaids bouquets! I used lime and yellow cymbidium orchids, green antique hydrangeas, peach ranunculus, peach "Juliet" David Austin garden roses, and purple fiddles.

Heather was hilarious when we got to the house. She literally screamed when she saw her flowers! She was so happy it totally made my day! I love when it when the bride gets to see the final product after so many months of planning.

I think this is one of my very favorite color combinations. So lively and happy :)

 The ceremony took place at St. Elizabeth Roman Catholic Church in Wilmington, Delaware.

The altar was decorated with tall vases filled white hydrangeas, green amaranthus, lime orchids, curly willow, white agapanthus, peonies, and baby's breath.

 The pews were lined with white hydrangeas.

 The reception took place at The Carriage House at Rockwood Park in Wilmington, Delaware. This venue is AMAZING!

            The ballroom reminds you of a barn setting with the huge barn doors and stone walls.

Heather had three different centerpieces. This style had submerged lime cymbidium orchids, and river rock to accent.

The cake was accented with yellow cymbidium orchids.

Her place card table was decorated with a large flat of wheat grass, along with more yellow orchids. I loved this venue, it was very barn-like and in the middle of a gorgeous historic park. Just a really cool place for a wedding! Congratulations again guys!!!

Super Fun Beachy Photo Shoot!

Over the summer we did an adorable photo shoot with the amazing Diana from Styled Pink Photography! Take a peek at these beautiful photos!

I created this sweet handtied bouquet with blush Candy Bianca roses, antique hydrangeas, lavender sweet peas, periwinkle scabiosa, pink cymbidium orchids, and cute black feathers. I added burlap around the stems for a vintage feel.

Maybe if I look at these beach photos, it will feel warmer outside!

DEFINITELY Check out Diana's website! She's awesome!

Lemon, Lime & Navy: Cheryl and Chris's Nautical Wedding at Camden County Boathouse

Cheryl's flowers were bright and bold in a combo of golds, lemons, and limes. I used dahlias, freesia, ranunculus, roses, stock, and lime button mums. These gorgeous photos by the amazing Rachel Pearlman!
Check out these toes!

Cheryl looked stunning! 

 The bridesmaids carried more white with a pop of bright gold, which looked awesome with their navy dresses!

The flower girl carried this adorable pomander of gold and lemon spray roses, and the navy and white striped ribbon gave that nautical feel.

I used white dahlias, freesia, and ranunculus, and paired them with gold Babe spray roses.

LOVE that ribbon! All the girls had it!

 Chris wore white spray roses, while the men wore yellow spray roses, 
all with the navy and white striped ribbon.


I love the tall bells of Ireland in her altar flowers!

The ceremony took place at Erial Community Church in Sicklerville.

  The reception took place at Camden County Boathouse.

  Their centerpieces were cute white lanterns with navy and white striped table runners!

 The cake had a pop of color with lime buttons, cream stock blooms, and gold spray roses.

Such a fun wedding and great couple to work with! Congratulations again guys!

A Trip to Paris: Shayla's French Themed Bat Mitzvah

 Shayla's Bat Mitzvah took place in November and I was so excited to work with her theme. She did a French Paris theme. Everything took place at Beth Israel Synagogue in Vineland, and all the details came together perfectly with the help of Kristin from Bel Momento.

The flowers in the sanctuary were kept softer, so we did white and light pink flowers along the half walls and by the altar. We used roses, orchids, hydrangeas, gerbera daisies, and waxflower.

The decor for the first night had a vintage french theme, so we used jewel tones and kept all the flowers super warm and romantic. I used red astilbe, plum orchids, wine anemones, gerbera daisies, deep red Black Bacarra roses, and dark purple sweet peas. We decorated these dress forms with simple mercury glass vessels filled with low bunches of florals.

The second centerpiece style used these sweet trinket boxes, which were perfect to stack or add flowers inside. We added a mercury glass goblet on top of one box, while the other was filled with more flowers.

 The room had such a warm and inviting feel.

The theme for the second day was a modern french feel, using hot pink, black, and white. Every table was named after a famous clothing designer.

These dress forms were so pretty! I added fresh flowers into the dress form midsection to create a "belt" of flowers, to add color and make the form look festive. Then we added three white cubes at the base filled with more hot pink flowers.

This was one of the entrance pieces that welcomed Shayla's guests. We hung ivory pearls and hot pink carnation pomanders to gold manzanita branches.

This looked so awesome and so modern.

The white cubes were filled with tulips, roses, mini callas, and gerbera daisies.

 This buffet centerpiece was placed on top of our pure white tall cylinder and was accented with black crystals. We used more hot pink flowers to make the piece pop against the ivory wall.

 These dress forms turned out gorgeous. I'd love to make something like this again! They were so romantic and fun!

I used gerbera daisies, roses, cymbidium orchids, and carnations.

The second centerpiece style used my white candelabras, and we added 15 hot pink roses and placed them where the taper candles would go.

 These really turned out so cool!

But I have to say this is my favorite, although the candelabras are gorgeous too!

 It's so hard to decide which is prettier, such a gorgeous room! LOVED this party!
