You may have seen me tweet that I was creating a bridal bouquet for my dietitian bride. This bridal bouquet was created for Loudoun bride Carlene. Carlene  also writes a great blog called Carlene’s Figments, and she hopes to open a practice here in Loudoun. I used sage, oregano, mint, mini black peppers, brussel sprouts, green beens, asparagus, okra, sugar snap peas, cabbage, and baby carrots in this bouquet. Oh yes I did use some flowers as well, we used orange santana roses, orange dahlias, purple scabiosa flowers, orange spray roses, silver dusty miller and silver brunia.

It’s yummy right? Carlene married at the Thomas Birkby House in Leesburg Va.

This is our Loudoun bride Betsy. I have known Betsy and her family for years and they are awesome. Betsy married at the Rust Sanctuary also in Leesburg. Betsy works for the Town of Leesburg Parks and Rec with the ROCK Program. She works with at-risk kids in an after school and summer program in four neighborhoods identified by the Leesburg Police Department.  Betsy said her kids are the best kiddos around and that they were so excited about the wedding– that they even celebrated with “wedding” cake from costco! 🙂

Betsey’s bouquet was created with white dahlias from Don, white veronica, balsa wood flowers, sahara roses, nigella pods, golden amaranthus, white spray roses, dusty miller, silver brunia, white ranunculus, green seeded euc, and scabiosa pods.

These were both beautiful Loudoun Weddings and I look forward to seeing more of these images from one of my favorite local photographers Bob Updegrove. Both brides used the Holly Heider Chapple Flowers petals to go program.
