Providing the flowers for Marie and Victor just a few weekends ago was a true highlight of the season. Groom Victor is the twin brother to my friend and event designer Vicki Grafton of my Simple Details, I love the Sunset Room at the National Harbor, I loved the bride and her mom, and I was thrilled to be working with photographer Abby Jiu. This wedding was awesome!!!!

The wedding day started like this… I was working at my computer when I noticed out the window that the most amazing pink tree peonies had bloomed overnight. I was about to design a beautiful calla lily bouquet for bride Maria but I just could not resist bringing her the peonies as well. So yes I brought Maria not one, but two bridal bouquets. Brides remember this, when you have an excellent photographer hired for the day, your vendors often delight in doing extra…. I knew I would get rocking pictures of both bouquets and I knew it would be fun.¬† The above picture is Marie receiving her second bridal bouquet.

Maria’s real bouquet was created with Picasso calla lily, lily grass, and great grandmothers cameo. I also personally cut MOB’s dress so that her lace could be wrapped around¬† the bouquet.

The wedding took place on the pier at the National Harbor.

The bride arrived to the ceremony in a vintage Studebaker.

The couple met in Bali, at sister Vicki’s wedding. Some of the designs including the place card area had a slight nod to Bali. Using the callas, and orchids was a must for this bride.

The tables featured 3 different designs. Bright colored orchids, hydrangea, roses, stock, peony, and viburnum were used to create all of the pieces.

This was a wonderful wedding with wonderful people and I totally love the images from the wonderful and totally amazing Abby Jiu.
