Valerie and Trevor were married in August of 2014 at the Merion Tribute House. I knew as soon as I read over her floral proposal I was going to love making these bouquets (remember my undying love of texture?). Valerie actually brought in some of the greenery used in the bouquets from her back yard, it couldn’t have matched her color scheme any better! The elegant garden-look worked so well with the Merion Tribute House’s atmosphere.
The bridal bouquet had two varieties of white dahlias (one just white and one with yellowish centers), creme roses with pale yellow centers, white ranunculus, pale yellow hypericum berries, grey brunia berries, dusty miller, and seeded eucalyptus. The bridesmaids were very similar to the bride, just without the dahlias and the addition of scabiosa pods. I loved the way the bridesmaids bouquets looked against their slate dresses, the dusty greenery looked perfect!

Ah, another Old Mill wedding in the Rose Valley, PA. It’s really the perfect venue for pretty much any wedding, but works especially well with rustic ones. Michelle and Bryan were married last August, and their wedding fit the Old Mill so well. They had some inclement weather forcing their ceremony inside, but you’d never know it was raining from the photos!
Michelle’s bouquets were beautiful. Some of my favorites that I’ve done to date, actually. Her bouquet had lots of coral spray roses, white lisianthus, white dahlias, white spray roses, green hypericum berries, mini green succulents, dusty miller, and hanging amaranthus (our namesake!) . As you may have gathered from previous posts, I’m a sucker for texture and this certainly had it! Michelle’s maids had more color to them with deep pink and coral spray roses, peach stock, peach berries, and dusty green succulents. Their bouquets really complimented their coral dresses wonderfully.
For the centerpieces, Michelle had gathered and decorated lots of assorted bottles to be filled with flowers in her color scheme. The tables had beds of green moss as well as vintage books to compliment the assortment of bottles. It looked really great! This is the second wedding I’ve done with books as accents, and I really love it.

Another blast from the past! Suzanne and Kirk were married a while ago now in March of 2013 at the Please Touch Museum. I cannot stress enough how much fun the Please Touch is for a wedding venue! Suzanne managed to get it during their Alice in Wonderland exhibit which was fantastic. There are so many spots for some really unique photos and a carousel to ride (and have your ceremony in front of!).
Suzanne’s flowers were all about color, texture, and uniqueness. For her and her maids, Suzanne had gathered tons of broaches to have made into bouquets. The variety of textures, colors, and styles really worked together for a very eclectic look. The boutonnieres were bright orange freesia with seeded eucalyptus for texture and bright blue ribbon around the stems.
The centerpieces matched the boutonnieres in shades of orange and bright blue. Rather than the standard green leaf lining the glass vase, we used blue ribbon (again matching with the boutonnieres) to bring even more color to the centerpieces. The centerpiece flowers were orange gerbera daisies, blue irises, orange pincushion protea (texture!), orange cymbidium orchids, orange lilies, Santana roses (one of my favorites) and blue agapanthus.
This wedding was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed doing something a little different for the bouquets, hopefully this trend continues!

Grace and Joseph were married last August at the River Club – Manayunk Brewery and Restaurant. This was my first time working at this venue, and I can’t wait to do another event there! It’s really quite a fun and modern place to have a wedding.
Grace’s bouquets featured tons of texture, which I love. Hers had enormous white garden roses, white lisianthus, peach hypericum berries, white lysimachia, seeded eucalyptus, mint, and dusty green succulents. Her maids all had similarly textured bouquets with ivory roses, yellow center garden roses, peach roses, peach stock, peach hypericum, mint, and seeded eucalyptus. The two little flower girls carried adorable yet simple pomanders that matched the bridesmaids.
The centerpieces also focused on texture, and let the venue take center stage. They were elevated on thin, silver pedestals and featured a wide array of greenery such as myrtle, lemon leaf, seeded eucalyptus and a few others. For the head table, Grace just wanted to use the bouquets. With bouquets as lovely as those, why not!

Lauren and Tim were married in August at the Phoenixville Foundry, PA. They had wonderful end-of-summer weather which made for some beautiful outdoor photos at the Valley Forge National Historical Park. The bright colors Lauren chose worked so well together–her centerpieces popped perfectly against the blue of the tablecloths. Coral and blue is quickly becoming a new favorite combination of mine!
The bridesmaids’ coral dresses were a great backdrop for their bouquets of gerbera daisies in shades of watermelon and hot pink as well as ivory roses. Lauren’s all-white bridal bouquet had hydrangea and fragrant garden roses.

Meagan and Rhett were married in November of last year (side note: Happy New Year! I’m still in shock that it’s 2014, didn’t 2013 just start a few months ago?) at one of my perennially favorite venues, The Merion Tribute House. They couldn’t have asked for a better fall day, the leaves at the Tribute House had turned and it was the perfect backdrop for the wedding.
All of the bouquets had sunflowers, yellow roses, circus roses, red roses, bronze football mums, orange waxflower, red hypericum berries, yellow viking mums, and yellow solidago. The warm, rich colors of the bouquets popped beautifully against the bridesmaids’ navy dresses!

Lauren and Brad were married earlier this year in April at The Old Mill in Rose Valley. The Old Mill is a fantastic venue, and one I always look forward to doing an event at. The interior of the building is so charming, and there are a million beautiful photo opportunities around the grounds. They even have a little waterfall! Lauren’s color choice went so well with the sunny, spring day she was married on. For her centerpieces, she really wanted blooming forsythia branches to bring the outdoors inside. As the forsythia was just beginning bloom, amassing such a quantity was challenging, but turned out so well! The tall yellow branches perfectly suited the atmosphere of the reception room at the Old Mill.
The bridesmaid’s bouquets included daffodils, roses, ranunculus, tulips, craspedia, and matched the centerpieces in shades of sunny yellow. Yellow flowers against dark navy dresses always looks so good!
The bride’s bouquet was a traditional mixture of white and ivory flowers, but had so much interesting texture to it. Flowers such as garden roses, ranunculus, spray roses, tulips, waxflower, and hydrangea made a wonderfully springy bouquet. Lauren also brought heirloom lace from a family member’s wedding veil for us to wrap around her bouquet handle. I love little touches like that!
