What an elegant evening in Washington D.C. at the Carnegie Institution for Science. A stunning venue! Hannah had such a vision for her wedding and it came together beautifully. Her flowers included champagne and peach roses, snapdragons, yarrow, and amaranthus. Congrats to the happy couple!

Such a beautiful wedding from September featuring garden roses, ranunculus, protea and eucalyptus. Julia's floral crown, and her bridesmaid's bouquets of just greenery, made it even more special!

Samantha & Brendan's bay front Annapolis wedding was one for the books! They had a beautiful wedding day. We traveled to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in August, with flowers intow. Pop The Cork Designs helped design and coordinate every detail. We constructed a chuppah design, a floral chandelier, garland, and many arrangements and bouquets. We used standard roses, garden roses, rice flower, poppy pods, astilbe, berries, and gorgeous dahlias. Love Life Images captured every moment of this fun filled wedding!
Shelby & Cody had a beautiful wedding this September at Shelby's parent's house in Ocean City. The setting was gorgeous! Lots of florals were used throughout their beautiful back yard for the ceremony and reception. We added flowers to their grand pergola for the ceremony, hung mason jar arrangements from shepherd's hooks and over the dance floor, and added various flowers to wine and patron bottles throughout the reception area. We also provided potted mini succulents that made the cutest favors for guests! For the arrangements, we used Juliet garden roses, other various roses, anemones, thistle, scabiosa, succulents, and berries. Congratulations to Shelby & Cody, the day was perfect!

Earlier this summer, we had so much fun putting together arrangements for Nick & Polly's Wedding at the Historic Baldwin Hall in Crofton, MD. We used bright pink, yellow, and coral peonies, dahlias, and ranunculus to fill antique milk bottles for their ceremony and reception. It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple. Such a fun wedding to kick off the summer!
Simply put...Julie and John had the most romantic and intimate wedding ceremony ever! It was just the two of them, the beach, and an amazing tree hung with flowers. All beautifully captured by Sarah Murray Photography. We made Julie's bouquet and floral crown out of peonies, Juliet garden roses, baby's breath, spray roses and eucalyptus. John's boutonniere made of a single succulent. We strung flower garland and hung jars of peonies from the big tree they said their vows under. It was such a privilege to take part in such a private and intimate wedding ceremony and we wish Julie and John a lifetime of happiness!
We were so honored to be a part of the Elizabeth Fogarty Workshop! This styled shoot, designed by Pop The Cork Designs, was stunning. We contributed a light and airy bouquet as well as a centerpiece arrangement and garland for the table. They were made using hydrangea, peonies, lavender, and greenery. Elizabeth Fogarty's photography beautifully captured every little detail. We are so happy to announce that the inspiration shoot was published on Elizabeth Anne Designs! It was a pleasure to work with such talented women!
Athena and Shawn envisioned a cozy backyard wedding with friends and family, to celebrate their love for each other. And if it's true that rain on your wedding day is good luck, then Athena and Shawn will have a lifetime full of happiness. No amount of rain could put a damper on the excitement these two felt for each other. For Athena's big day, she was inspired by a flower as pretty and unique as herself; the King Protea is a stunning flower that we incorporated throughout her wedding. Her color palette was soft and subtle shades of pink and gray. Creating this couple's floral vision for them was just as exciting for us. We wish them a lifetime of happiness :)

Oh how I love Hydrangeas.....I thought I would put together a few arrangements for a special friend's bridal shower. And not only is she a very good friend of mine, she is also now my niece (long story)! Athena and Shawn are getting married in two weeks! They are absolutely perfect for each other. We can't wait to create their wedding flowers! Stay tuned for a blog post on their wedding...
2/14/2015.....Our first Valentine's Day was a success! So many beautiful unique arrangements were crafted and delivered to your loved ones on the most romantic day of the year. It was such a joy to see everyone overcome with happiness when they received their special gifts. It made my day very rewarding! I was also especially thankful for my Valentine to come deliver a few arrangements with me. He is the best! We used a variety of flowers including roses, ranunculus, freesia, stock, carnations, baby's breath, protea, tulips, eucalyptus and a few others. We were inspired by all shades of pink. Every arrangement was different and included a special message from their loved one. The cutest notes were written! It was a true reminder of how important love is and that it should be fully celebrated every day of the year, not just Valentine's Day. We can't wait to help spread the love again next year!

Betsy and I have been busy working to launch Flourish and start this new and exciting chapter in our lives. Starting a business has been a learning experience for us both, but we have had a great support system from our families and friends... AND IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING!! We have received such a positive response already for our work and we appreciate the wonderful comments. Brides have already been contacting us and we cannot wait to start working on their weddings.
Back in early December, we did a styled shoot on one of the coldest, windiest days ever. We couldn't have done it without the guidance of Sarah Murray and her amazing photography skills. The results were breathtaking. Special thanks to the models who braved the freezing cold and super strong winds - Andrea Matrona, Catie Pusey, and Steph Novak! I don't know how you girls did it, you made it look like such a warm day. Thanks for helping bring our flowers to life!
We can't wait to start working on all of our upcoming weddings! Stay tuned!!!
