More pictures from Becky's wedding

Leo Druker took these wonderful photos of Becky and Greg's wedding in early December.  She was a beautiful bride and it was such fun to work with her.  She collected lots of elements to use in the arrangements and I was happy to oblige.  She wanted a wonderful color story of bright pinks and rose with grey and cream.

Sara and Kiran's wedding

Yesterday Sara and Kiran got married yesterday at the Carnegie Institute in downtown DC...
The color story was gold and silver with blush and cream roses.  These are just some quick shots of the bouquet and the cake table decor with a gold branch with hanging votives.  

Becky's wedding/floral table runner

I did the flowers for Becky's wedding in early December.  She wanted a table runner down the length of a 16 foot table.  I ordered a pre-made princess pine garland which was so beautiful!  We enhanced it with mercury glass votives, brass candlesticks from the bride's collection,  grey-ish pink succulents and a variety of roses.  So pretty I think.

Winter gleaned bouquet

For the January challenge for IFDA (Innovative Floral Designers Assoc - MD) my local design group, I proposed that our members make a bouquet from materials that they got from the own gardens or somehow found.  I toured my garden and then hopped across the street to my inlaws' garden.  Their garden is really better than mine mostly because my husband puts a ton of work in over there and I found some great stuff.  Pink camellias, beet greens, lambs ears,  red nandina leaves euonymous foliage, ligularia and dusty miller were ready for the picking.
