Pennsylvania Wedding Florist: Tara Keely Trunk Show at Jennifer’s Bridal

Can I tell you how much I love springtime?!  Flowers are finally in full bloom.  It just makes me so happy.  One of my favorite things is working with locally grown flowers and greens, especially from my own garden when I can.

Have you ever thought about using only locally grown flowers and greens for your wedding?  Buying local is a big trend right now, and one that I support.  The flowers and greens from these arrangements came from The Farm at Oxford which is a flower farm in Lincoln University, Pennsylvania.  I love working with Mara and all of the beauties that she grows!

Tulips, azaleas, daffodils, wisteria, and a mix of greens were used to create these light and airy centerpieces.  I even mixed in some hosta leaves, boxwood, and vinca greens from my own garden!

I wanted to design unique and spunky floral accessories to compliment these incredible gowns at the Hayley Paige Trunk Show at Jennifer’s Bridal.  Most people don’t think about the endless possibilities of how to use flowers within their wedding.  I suggest going against the grain to make your wedding memorable.  Have you ever thought about wearing floral jewelry?!  Or even a floral crown or hairpiece?

Delaware Wedding Florist: Floral Stylized Photo Shoot with Meghan

I was beyond excited when Meghan volunteered to wear her wedding dress for a floral stylized photo shoot. She was originally one of my gorgeous brides!  Her wedding was full of purple and bling.  And I brought the sparkle!

I knew the perfect location for this shoot… the swinging bridge in Brandywine Park! And I automatically wanted to go with a formal black, white, and red color palette. I’ve been dreaming about creating a luscious duchess rose bridal bouquet. This was the perfect opportunity. Who says dreams don’t always come true?!

I went with red roses to had that dramatic flare.  The duchess rose is constructed out of the petals of approximately two dozen roses. There is nothing like it. I think that it adds a powerful feeling to any wedding. To add drama, I created a ruffle effect with black ribbon and trailed the black ribbon from the handle of the bouquet.  Long trailing ribbons are on trend for this wedding season.

Can you see yourself with a duchess rose bridal bouquet and your bridesmaids with round bouquets with red roses?! Can we say gorgeousness?! It’s definitely an impact statement.

What do you think about the style of this shoot?  What are you inspired by?  Do you have any suggestions for future floral stylized photo shoots?  I would love to hear from you!

I hope that these pictures inspire you for your wedding day.  Contact me today to schedule your own bridal consultation.


Delaware Wedding Florist: Kristin at Family Home

Kristin had the brilliant idea to have a photo shoot on the day that she had her trial run for hair and make-up. Why hasn’t anyone thought to do this before?!  It’s another excuse to get all dolled up and rock your bridal gown on a day other than your wedding day.  Sweet!

She included her mother and maid of honor.  They all dressed up in their gorgeous dresses to pose for a few pictures at the mother of the bride’s home.  They told me that they took their prom pictures in the same place!

Kristin was stunning in her bridal gown from Irini’s Originals.  Nicole Ferrara of Ferrara Photography is the talented person who captured this special moment.  The hand-tied bouquets consisted of roses, tulips, carnations, dusty miller, and evergreens.  I love these rustic winter bouquets!

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this fun photo shoot.  I wanted to congratulate Kristin on her wedding.  She was a beautiful bride!

Dover Wedding Florist: Johnny & Diane at Delaware Agricultural Museum

I wanted to wish Johnny and Diane a very happy first wedding anniversary!  I can’t believe that it has been a year since their rustic country wedding at the Delaware Agricultural Museum in Dover, Delaware.

When I met Diane, she had a binder full of ideas and knew exactly what she wanted for her special day.  I still remember when she told me that her wedding colors were burgundy and real tree camo.  You don’t hear that everyday!  🙂

I adored the old-time village behind the museum.  There was a little white chapel and little wooden houses.  It was very picturesque!

Johnny and Diane were married in front of the chapel while the guests sat on hay bales.  The aisle was lined with shepard’s hooks with mason jars filled with light and fluffy baby’s breath.  The bouquets had baby’s breath with burgundy calla lilies tucked in and were wrapped in twine.  My favorite touch was the shotgun shell boutonnieres with baby’s breath.

I loved how all of their family and friends helped set up their ceremony and reception space.  I know that this day was filled with many cherished memories.  Especially their two adorable daughters as their flower girls!

Congratulations Johnny and Diane!  Thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day!
