Classic, timeless beauty. I love the rich boldness of the color red. It is definitely a statement color. Red roses are symbolic of deep love and affection. What is more romantic than that?! Jessica Watson Photography captured the essence of this.

This enchanting styled shoot captures a soft, romantic, vintage feel. The dreamy blush lace wedding gown designed by Modern Trousseau is perfection. Blush is still very on trend this season. Wearing a gorgeous blush gown like this one is a fun way to incorporate the color in your wedding while still being able to have bright beautiful flowers.

Philadelphia Wedding Florist: Halloween Masquerade

Happy Halloween! Last year, I participated in an Intrigued Experience Tour workshop at Fresh Designs Flora & Events. I enjoy expanding my knowledge and learning new techniques when it comes to floral design. During this workshop, we created hand-tied spiral bouquets and boutonnieres and how to style a table. Have you ever considered a Halloween masquerade themed wedding?

This workshop was full of great vendors! Shannon Wellington Weddings and Events designed and styled this gorgeous tablescape. The decadent desserts were created by the talented Clara’s Groovy Deliciousness. Carly Fuller Photography captured all of the stunning photos! I especially love the behind the scenes pictures. Custom stationary including invitations, menus, and place cards created by Paper Rock Scissors. Sue of Fresh Designs Flora & Events provided her fun studio space for the workshop. I loved working with these ladies!

So, the theme of this styled shoot was a Halloween masquerade wedding. Doesn’t that sound like fun?! I adore all of the small details that Shannon incorporated to bring the table to life from the clocks to the masquerade masks. The smores cupcakes that Samirah made were to die for! I know because I ate too many of them. Everything came together to create the perfect mood for an elegant Halloween event.

I had so much fun creating this hand-tied spiral bridal bouquet and boutonniere. One of my favorite touches in the wedding bouquet was the white mini pumpkins.

Delaware Floral Designer: Christmas Tree Dress

As a floral designer, I have been dying to create a Christmas tree wedding gown!  This year I have been working with my friends at Jennifer’s Bridal to create beautiful arrangements for their trunk shows.  While I was talking to Amy one day, we discussed displaying the Christmas tree dress on one of their mannequins in their main window.

Now I get to share the gorgeous holiday display with all of you. I loved designing this floral display with locally grown branches from Christmas trees in Pennsylvania.  Let me know what you think.

Christmas Tree Dress (1)I decided to go with a high-low skirt created out of different varieties of pine and fir branches.  The base dress is a stunning short, lace wedding dress by Pronovias.  I think that it created the perfect bodice for this dress form Christmas tree.

Christmas Tree Dress (6)To finish off the dress, I wrapped a fun red plaid ribbon around the waist of the mannequin and added a few trailing snowflakes.  Isn’t this a fun idea for your winter wedding?!

If you’re in the Hockessin area or are shopping for your wedding gown, stop by Jennifer’s Bridal and check out this gown and all the other lovely bridal gowns.

The holiday season is the most popular time for engagements.  So, if you are newly engaged, don’t forget about Floral Designs by Jessi for all your wedding flower needs.  Contact me today to schedule your consultation.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! 

Maryland Wedding Florist: Zhuolun & Weibiao

An elegant barn wedding, who would have thought?!  Zhuolun and Weibiao were the sweetest couple.  The rustic Spring Hill Manor was the perfect backdrop for their Maryland wedding.  Dear Abigail Photography did a great job capturing the beauty of this shabby chic country wedding.

I love all of the DIY wedding projects that they did with help from their family and friends including a decadent dessert bar.  Don’t those macaroons look delicious?!

When I met with Zhuolun, she told me that she wanted a unique bridal bouquet that no other bride has carried before.  As a floral designer, this was music to my ears!  We decided on a square European inspired bouquet design with purple ombre flowers including tulips, orchids, ranunculus, hydrangea, and hyacinth. For a touch of whimsy, I added trailing greens and flowers from the bottom of the wedding bouquet.

Most brides only wear one wedding dress, but Zhuolun wore three!  Her first gown for the ceremony was by Pronovias from Jennifer’s Bridal dress shop.  I loved that her reception dresses were shades of purple!

Congratulations Zhuolun and Weibiao!  I am so happy for the two of you!  I loved being able to create gorgeous and unique wedding flowers for your special day!  I wish you a lifetime of happiness together.

Chester County Wedding Florist: Nature Inspired Editorial Shoot

Having you ever dreamed of frolicking in a field of flowers?!  If so, you’re going to love this editorial shoot!  The picturesque venue was the fields of The Farm at Oxford in Lincoln University, Pennsylvania.  Mara, the owner of The Farm at Oxford, grew all of the flowers and greens used in this photo shoot.  I love being able to work with Mara to use locally grown flowers and greens in my floral designs!  Being to get unique varieties of flowers is an added bonus to buying from a local flower farmer.

Kylene of Leave It To Me Photography is the talented woman behind the lens for this editorial shoot.  She is amazing at being able to capture the perfect light in a picture!  Jen of Jen’s Hair Creations used her skill with hair and make-up to enhance Sarah’s beauty.  Our gorgeous model Sarah is one of the ladies from Jennifer’s Bridal, who provided the dress and jewelry.  Can you believe that Sarah’s boyfriend proposed to her shortly after this shoot?!  Congratulations Sarah on your engagement!  We all know that you will be a beautiful bride!

My inspiration for this editorial shoot came from a girlhood dream of wandering through a meadow of flowers.  My grandparents used to live on a large property.  When I was younger, I loved to venture through the woods to the meadow that was on the other side.  If you haven’t figured out already, my obsession with flowers started at an early age!

I wanted the style of this shoot to look as if Sarah was walking through this field gathering flowers.  I used a variety of greens and white flowers to create this bridal bouquet, floral crown, cake, and candelabra centerpiece.  I chose to use white to accent the stunning gown by Jim Hjelm designed by Hayley Paige.  This is the gown for you if you want to stand out!  It is a classic style but with a punch of spunk!  To add a small pop of color, we added these fun earrings and bracelet from Haute Bride.
