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.

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!

Delaware Wedding Florist: Blush by Hayley Paige Trunk Show at Jennifer’s Bridal

One of my favorite designers that Jennifer’s Bridal carries is Hayley Paige.  Her dresses are timeless with a unique flair.  About a week ago, Jennifer’s Bridal had a trunk show for the Spring 2015 line of Blush by Hayley Paige.  The dresses did not disappoint!

The inspiration for the floral arrangements came from the photo shoot for Hayley Paige‘s new line.  It took place on a tropical island.  So, what’s better than gorgeous orchids, king protea, pink ginger, gloriosa, and lush greenery.  I loved manipulating the ferns by braiding and weaving them to add different textures to the design.

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: Ti Adora Trunk Show & White Sale at Jennifer’s Bridal

Last week I posted pictures from Jennifer’s Bridal of beautiful floral arrangements made out of lush greenery.  In honor of the White Sale that is currently taking place, I decided to spruce up the floral table runner with a pop of color.  Check out the transformation of the same table runner by just adding flowers.

Today is the last day of the White Sale where they have samples at over 50% off! If you haven’t made your appointment yet, you better do it now! The Ti Adora by Alvina Valenta Trunk Show runs through April 26th.
