Your flowers are exceptional; they have personality and life that other arrangements don’t have.

Elaine and Elliott were married at the classic Ivy Inn this past April in Charlottesville, Virginia. Their ceremony was simple and elegant at the University of Virginia Chapel. After, they rode off in an amazing classic car provided by the groom’s family. Charlottesville, VA graced us with some incredible spring weather! Since it was so lovely, we were able to source the lilac in the bride’s bouquet from her own garden. It seemed like the last breath of spring before the southern heat began to creep in. Her flowers were all white with unique and varied textures including some amazing bleached ruscus from Holland. Take a peek and let me know what you think!

From the bride:

[First Blush] has a great eye for what combination of flowers and colors will go together and it made for a lovely addition to our wedding decorations!

Sarah and Austin got married on a toasty June afternoon at St. Clement's Castle. This wedding was especially special to me since Sarah and I have known each other since we were kids! Her sister and I played soccer together when we were little (her dad was our coach!), and we all played in high school together. It was an incredible opportunity to be a part of her wedding and to celebrate with her whole family. We stayed to watch the ceremony and thank goodness we did! You can check out why in this post here: 

I had initially planned on using lisianthus as one of her blossoms but the peonies were just absolutely spectacular so I added them in as a surprise to the bride. The campanula was also a last minute decision and I think both flowers elevated the design. Our palette was white and ivory with touches of light pink.  

Congratulations Sarah and Austin! I wish you all of the best.
