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.

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!

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!

Rehoboth Beach Wedding Florist: Michael & Megan at Rehoboth Beach Country Club

With all of this bitter cold weather, I thought it would be nice to share Michael and Megan’s wedding from last May.  If I close my eyes, I can feel the sunshine and salty sea breeze.  Their wedding had a romantic, beachy feel with a touch of Hawaii.  The couple wanted to incorporate a little touch of Hawaii since Michael was stationed there in the Army.

Their wedding was at the gorgeous Rehoboth Beach Country Club in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.  Megan looked ravishing as she walked down an aisle lined with rose petals and fresh Hawaiian leis.  They were married under a pergola draped in shimmering champagne organza overlooking the bay.

The ballroom was filled with their family and friends.  The centerpieces were lush and romantic with roses, gerbera daisies, and seeded eucalyptis accented with white sea shells.  Candlelight and more leis decorated the outside patio.

Congratulations Michael and Megan!  It was truly a magical day.  Thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day!

Broadkill Beach Wedding Florist: Laurie & Josh on the Beach

I can still feel the ocean breeze on my face from this wedding at Broadkill Beach.  Laurie and Josh wanted a small, intimate wedding on the beach.  I love that they rented a house on the beach  and had it there.

The bouquets were sweet and romantic with coral, peach, and white roses, hypericum berries, and dusty miller.  The fabric draped over the bamboo archway flowed in the ocean breeze.

Brownlee of Honeycutt Photography did double duty at the wedding.  She was a bridesmaid and the photographer.  Not to mention, sister of the groom!  I think that she did an awesome job!  I hope you all enjoy the love and happiness that she captured.  I also included some of the pictures that I took of the flowers.

Congratulations Laurie and Josh!  Thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day!
