Wedding on the Bay

Picture this, you're at a wedding standing under the most beautiful sky and the bride and groom look blissfully happy as they exchange their vows. That was the atmosphere for this rustic chic wedding at Celebrations at the Bay. Everything was perfect and the bride was one of the sweetest people I have ever met. I remember meeting her for our initial consultation and her insisting on buying me coffee. Everything for this day went perfectly.  Natalie Lane Photography really captured this day in such a beautiful way. Enjoy the photos!!!

Bridal Boudoir ~ Getting Ready

I'm so happy that I can share these photos from a sexy bridal boudoir shoot. I think this is such an intimate wedding gift from bride to groom. The oh so talented and creative photographer, Julie Socher Photography was such a pleasure to work with and I was very surprised and excited when she told me that she wanted to include some floral pieces in this shoot. Julie, thanks so much for this opportunity!!! Enjoy the photos :)

"It's A Girl!" - The Frank Baby Shower

This past weekend I was given the honor of being a part of a very important baby shower. I say important because the mom-to-be was friend/mentor of mine since high school. When I first started blogging last year I kicked off my first post with a tribute to her because she inadvertently helped me "plant seeds" for this idea I had of becoming a floral designer for weddings and events. I've learned and designed a lot since that first post and was completely honored when I was asked by her sister to provide decor for this owl themed teal and fuchsia colored baby shower. The baby shower took place at Smith Commons in Washington DC on the second floor. I absolutely loved the character of this building. All the exposed brick, dark wood, and vintage furniture was the perfect tone for this extraordinary baby shower. Enjoy the photos.

Teal and Pink wall decal that I created will hang on the wall in the baby's room when she's born.

I really did love the chalk board welcome sign

Everyone loved these cute turquoise and fuchsia bud vases

Loved these miniature ceramic owls

Toya's beautiful sister utilizing baby onsies instead of a sign in book. How creative was that!
