Emmerson Creek Barn Wedding

Posted on August 26th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Chelsey and John were married at Emmerson Creek Barn this past summer.  The barn and tent were filled with lots of color, a bit of rustic charm and plenty of vintage touches.

The bridesmaid’s pastel bouquets popped off their coral lace dresses perfectly while Chelsea’s bouquet of coral charm peonies, peach garden roses, blush lisianthus, ivory dahlias, and lots of other textures complimented her bridal gown wonderfully.

Chelsea worked with a vintage rentals company to select her reception vessels which consisted of silver trays, a trio of milk glass vases, crystal vessels, and polished silver teapots.  The texture of the silver teapots was captivating and created that perfectly aged aesthetic on the tables!  We filled them all with a colorful palette of wildflower blooms which really popped in the tent.  Lidia & Rueben of Codrean Photography were there to capture every detail perfectly.

Flower Friday Peonies!

Posted on June 14th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Flower Friday has been MIA lately, but we are bringing it back this week with a Spring favorite…..PEONIES!  I could go on and on about how much I love these beauties.  Although they have a short window of availability they are one of our all time favorites here.  They are available in quite a few colors, most often you will find them in white and varying shades of pink.  If you are really lucky you will be able to find them in yellow!  We are growing a few yellow peonies for some upcoming projects next year.  Stay tuned for a blog post next week on that topic.  If you are lucky enough to be getting married when they are in season, we suggest you incorporate them in your wedding in the bouquets or centerpieces.  Enough talk, I will let the images speak for themselves!



More peony arrangements and bouquets coming to the blog soon from Saturday’s upcoming wedding!  Check back later for more gorgeousness!

Get ready for a blog post full of gorgeous picture after gorgeous picture.  I seriously could NOT narrow them down, they are all so beautiful.  Props to Soda Fountain Photography who did a fabulous job capturing the love, laughter, and details of Katie & Jon’s Spring Wedding Day at the end of April.  These two lucked out with a warm and sunny Spring day for their wedding.

For their wedding we coordinated linens, lighting, florals, and several other small details including the fun escort cards.  I love working with clients on all decor aspects of their wedding and I would say we definitely succeeded in creating a beautiful and cohesive setting for Katie and Jon’s wedding.  I truly enjoyed working with Katie and getting to know her throughout the planning process.  She is such a sweetheart and had some fabulous ideas for their barn wedding.  While I pretty much loved everything about their wedding, please take a peek at the AMAZING coral peonies we used in the bridesmaid’s bouquets and centerpieces.  They are some of the most beautiful flowers I have ever worked with!  Take a look at the breathtaking images below.  Thanks for allowing me to play a part in … Read More »

Thanksgiving Tablescape

Posted on November 23rd, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

I promised I would reveal the place card today that I incorporated into my own Thanksgiving Tablescape, and drum roll please………… here it is!

#5 is the winner, the Liquidambar fruit seed pod.  My husband and I hosted our first Thanksgiving yesterday, complete with a huge 24lb Turkey and all of the trimmings.  It was a wonderful day spent with family and of course lots of yummy food and some pretty florals!  I am so thankful for my family and friends this year, and all of my wonderful clients, past and future!  It has been a great year and I’m truly blessed to have had a chance to work with such wonderful couples.  I am also sooooo looking forward to some amazing weddings in 2013!

For our Thanksgiving tablescape, I incorporated the most perfect coral charm peonies, seriously, they were huge, combined them with some deep purple ranunculus, privet berries and accents of grass plumes and dusty miller.  My Mom helped me out by making the pretty Chevron Table Runner, since my sewing skills are somewhat lacking.  I spray painted some mini pumpkins with metallic spray paint to contrast with the florals in mercury glass and add some Thanksgiving cheer.  The final … Read More »
