Betsy and Jonathan married last spring at the Airlie Center. Their wedding was an absolute beauty and it was featured in the current issue of Washingtonian Bride and Groom magazine. The wedding was photographed by the always delightful and always amazing photographer Michelle Lindsay. The flawless execution of the event and the extraordinary design was done by Sara Bauleke of Bella Notte. Many thanks also to Betsy and Jonathan for choosing me to be their floral designer. I loved working on this wedding. It’s fresh, bright, clean, and happy!!!

The brides bouquet featured white peony, yellow ranunculus, yellow spray roses, yellow cabbage roses, yellow freesia, nandina berry that I painted navy, and white anemone.

Sara found super fun blue and white striped ribbon for the bouquets and yellow and blue ribbon for the aisle.  The ribbon was found at the Heirloom Ribbon Company.
I have been a big fan of Heirloom since this wedding.

The Airlie Center features a manor home, numerous guest cottages and lots of secret gardens for guests to explore or for portraits.

The reception took place in a gorgeous outdoor solarium.

Buffet pieces were elevated on a trio of white vases anchored together with our fabulous Heirloom Ribbon.

Sara had custom runners designed for the guest tables, I was thrilled with the way the bright yellow flowers popped on the geometric pattern.

Custom invites were designed by Christina of Paperzest. Her work is always so perfectly detailed and orginal.
