Delaware Wedding Florist: Jennifer & Dan at Harry’s Savoy

I loved working with Jennifer and Dan for their wedding!  It was like a mini high school reunion.  Jennifer and I went to high school together along with her photographer, Brownlee Honeycutt of Honeycutt Photography, and her DJ, Mike Simmons of Must Be The Music DJs.  Their wedding took place at the beautiful Harry’s Savoy Ballroom in Wilmington, Delaware.

Jennifer and Dan decided to get married on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.  I thought it was a brilliant idea since all of their family and friends would be in town for the holiday.  Plus, all of the dancing would help burn some the calories from eating so much turkey!

Their weddings colors were plum and white. The plum added a richness and regal feel to the wedding.  I adore the orchids, roses, hydrangea, freesia, lisianthius, and stock used to create the gorgeous round bouquets.  For an added touch, we trailed Picasso calla lilies through Jennifer’s bouquet.

For Jennifer’s something old, she tasked me with the “nerve-racking” job of cutting lace from her mother’s wedding veil to wrap around the base of her bridal bouquet.  I can’t remember how much reassurance I needed before I cut into her mother’s veil. Ugh.  However, I absolutely love bringing a special and sentimental touch to a wedding.

Congratulations Jennifer and Dan!  I am so happy for the two of you!  I loved being a part of your special day!  I wish you a lifetime of happiness together.

Philadelphia Main Line Florist: Radnor Hunt Races

The 85th annual Radnor Hunt Races took place about 2 weeks ago.  This historic event consists of six steeplechase races.  Everyone loves to get dressed up and socialize for this event!

One of my favorite things about Spring is that my garden begins to bloom.  All of the flowers and greens are from my personal garden.  Who doesn’t love clematis, columbine, hosta, and ninebark?!  I think that you can tell that I’m still obsessed with floral fascinators and floral jewelry.

Kennett Square Wedding Florist: Willowdale Steeplechase

I hope that everyone had a great Mother’s Day!  Every year on Mother’s Day is the Willowdale Steeplechase in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.  What a fun way to celebrate with your mom!  The photo below was taken by Jim Graham Photography.

My obsession continues with creating these great floral fascinators!!!  I was inspired by Great Britain and the Kentucky Derby.

Christina wore this design to the Willowdale Steeplechase last weekend.  I created the structure out of wires and then attached these gorgeous yellow calla lilies!  A ray of sunshine, right?!?!

I am currently working on another floral fascinator and two floral necklaces to be worn at the Radnor Hunt Races tomorrow.  I am still taking orders for floral hats and jewelry designed and created out of fresh flowers and greens with your personal vision in mind.  Up next is the Devon Horse Show at the end of the month.

Delaware Floral Designer: Winterthur Point-to-Point

The first Sunday of every May brings the feel of Springtime and the steeplechase races at Winterthur Point-to-Point.  My husband and I have been able to attend this event numerous times, and we always have a great time.  Can you ask for a more gorgeous day to spend outside?!

After the Kentucky Derby yesterday, it is nice to see everyone dressed up today for the races in Delaware.  Who doesn’t love the over-the-top fashion?!

My new obsession has been designing and creating these derby inspired hats.  I made this floral fascinator for Christina to wear to Point-to-Point.  Doesn’t she look beautiful?!

I loved making this out of monestra leaves, aspidistra, Dendrobium orchids, and freesia.  This hat will definitely stand out in the crowd!!!

Delaware Wedding Florist: Alyssa & Ian’s Engagement Shoot

Alyssa and Ian are about the cutest couple I have ever seen.  Megan of Honey Bee Photography captured their love in their magical engagement shoot at the enchanting Gibraltar Gardens in Wilmington, Delaware last fall.

Alyssa and Ian got engaged at Disneyland in California.  How awesome is that?!  I absolutely love the touch of Disney with the carved Mickey pumpkin they used in their engagement photos.  They wanted to have their pictures taken in a beautiful garden that was kind of reminiscent of Beauty and the Beast.  I think that Gibraltar Gardens was the perfect site!

I loved designing and creating a whimsical floral crown for Alyssa with grapevine, ranunculus, and succulents.  I think that it looked gorgeous on Alyssa!
