Corporate events that rocked our world - Part 1

B Floral has been so fortunate to do some pretty amazing events in our beautiful city of Washington, DC.  I love everyone of these designs and the venues they were designed for.

Gold candelabras, overflowing flowers on the table and hanging from above added so much drama to an already dramatic setting.  It's not everyday an event is held on the The Warner Theater stage.  This venue is so opulent, unique and dramatic that we had to design the flowers on that level.  The planner for this event chose such gorgeous linens, place settings and rentals and allowed us to go wild with the flowers.  This will forever be one of my all time personal favorites.  Photo above and below by Erin Scott Photography  Catering by Design Cuisine, rentals by DC Rental

Did you know that The National Cathedral rents out various spaces for events?  Make sure you get a fabulous lighting company like Atmosphere Lighting (shown above) to showcase the architecture.  This event had a Spanish theme so we naturally used sangria pitchers made in Spain for vases.  Photo by Erin Scott Photography

The Natural History Museum is one I frequent often.  We have taken our kids, friends and visiting relatives too many times to count and it was so fun to see our designs set up around the iconic African elephant.  Photo above and below by David Keith Photography

This set up was gorgeous with a perfect plum linen, gold accents and the flowers bringing in the dusty hues of blue, green and lavender.  Catering and rentals by Occasions Caterers

The view of the capital is amazing, but the view inside of the Library of Congress is so jaw dropping you just can't believe your eyes.  These out of town clients were lucky enough to dine in The Great Hall of the Thomas Jefferson Building.  Once again the table set up was perfection.  A warm terra cotta and gold with the pops of color coming from the flowers.  Photo above and below by David Keith Photography Catering and rentals by Occasions Caterers

A Military Wedding

There is just something that hits me hard about a military wedding.  When I first met this bride and groom I was struck by how happy they were.  The bride's parents joined us and it was obvious how proud they were of their soon to be son-in-law, the Marine, and of their daughter who had chosen well.  Throughout the meeting there were hints of the sacrifices they have made for their country.  Something I appreciate deeply, but have no clue what that must really be like.  I almost lost it when they spoke of the carpet they wanted to stand on for the ceremony.  A carpet the groom brought back from a tour in Afghanistan.

I instantly knew I wanted to work with this family and I wanted to make their flowers spectacular.  It was a fall wedding so I knew we had to get dahlias from Don's Dahlias, a gifted grower in Leesburg, VA.  Don and mother nature delivered.  On the day of the wedding we arrived at the Marine Barracks in DC with a truck load of arrangements and bouquets filled with the most gorgeous dahlias and fall flowers.  We drove up to the iron gates through security and onto the immaculately manicured property.  I walked up to the Commandant's home to deliver the bridal party flowers and was met by the groom who seemed calm.  The home is elegant, pristine and historic and feels very serious.  You can't help but to stand a little straighter while in this house.  The bride looked so beautiful and seemed to be bursting with excitement.    She loved the flowers!  Mission accomplished!  Enjoy these incredible images by John A Gessner Photography

Chuppah with a View

An elegant white and green wedding is always a classic, but when you add in some B Floral hanging installations and gorgeous florals and a venue with a view like the Hay Adams Hotel, it raises the bar to another level.  I should also mention that this family was so wonderful to work with and the couple was most excited about getting married.  As it should be.

Above the aisle hung heavy greenery and glass votives leading to a "floating" chuppah made of mixed greenery with an amazing view of the White House.  The arrangements were a mix of tall and low arrangements with lots of wild, loose greenery.  Enjoy this beautiful wedding captured so perfectly by The Observatory Photography.
