I will admit when Dominique came to me with her color palette, I was nervous. She wanted to showcase her pride for the West Virginia Mountaineers’, whose colors, for those of you who don’t know, are blue and gold. I was nervous about using such contrasting colors. I wanted to make sure that her wedding […]

This day was hot, hot, hot, but nothing could keep this wedding from being the perfect fall day!  Lauren wanted a plum and burnt orange wedding with some pops of yellow.  The wonderful part about having a wedding in the fall in Frederick, is the abundance of local flowers, including these glorious dahlias! Lauren’s bouquet […]

The VisArts Center in Rockville, MD is a super-cool, modern venue that I got to decorate for the first time.  Artist studios and gallery exhibitions welcome guests into a modern ballroom with floor to ceiling windows.  My favorite part was the rooftop ceremony site overlooking Rockville Town Center.  I loved bringing the soft touch of […]

Wanna know a secret? This American Grown Picnic Elopement was supposed to be based around the Lily of the Valley that grow at my home studio in Frederick, MD.  These flowers are usually cost prohibitive to use, unless you can get them locally, which happens for about 1 week in May.  My planner, Brielle, and […]

Years ago, I had this vision for a moody, jewel toned photoshoot with a gorgeous dinner table, set under hanging flowers and candles.  I wanted jewel tone flowers, amazing ribbon/fabric detail, and ferns.   I knew it wouldn’t be anything like what most people were doing, but I knew it would be beautiful.  I wasn’t exactly […]

On Mother’s Day Weekend, I was part of a volunteer design team for the 106th First Lady’s Luncheon, hosted by the Congressional Club.  Each year the Congressional Club hosts a bi-partisan luncheon in honor of the First Lady to benefit a charity (or charities) of her choice.  This year’s luncheon benefited Lily’s Place, in Huntington, […]

Why Are Flowers So Expensive? So often, I get inquiries from clients who have really big and beautiful plans for their wedding….. and absolutely NO idea what those big plans will cost.  And why should they?? Pinterest does not come with pricetags on all those gorgeous images, and my clients (hopefully) are only getting married […]

In my quest to use more American Grown flowers in my designs, I have been lucky enough to become friends with some amazing farmers along the way.  Julianne and Tim Du Four are the owners of Petal Patch Flower Farm.  Their flower farm is less than 15 minutes away from me, just outside of Frederick, MD.  […]
