Pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins

Fall is in the air and I thought it only fitting to post one of my all time favorite weddings.  The bride wanted pumpkins.  Not just any orange pumpkin, but a variety of white, gray and peach.  We scoured the farmers markets, Virginia farms, and even Whole Foods to find the perfect selection of heirloom pumpkins for this wedding.  The wedding took place in The Ronald Reagan Building a few years ago.  The incredible images are by Procopio Photography.

Summer wedding at Morais Vinyard

This beautiful summer vineyard wedding was planned and designed by Tabitha Roberts of Roberts and Co. and took place at Morais Vineyard in Virginia.  B Floral had the pleasure of providing the flowers.  The bride had one request, include sunflowers in the designs.  The challenge was then to mix elegant flowers with more casual summer flowers, such as the sunflower.  The designs came together beautifully and was selected by Style Me Pretty Editors' as one of the "Best of 2015".

Congratulations to this wonderful couple!

Engagement Story

Every couple has a story.  How they met, how the relationship progresses and eventually how they become engaged.  Whether it's on one knee at a favorite restaurant or at the top of a mountain after a long hike.  Whatever the story is, it will become part of the fabric that you weave together.  The lifelong story that will be told over and over to your family, friends, and children.  I love the story of how this beautiful couple met.  I had the pleasure of working with them and creating a romantic wedding filled with red roses.  Read the entire story featured here on Washingtonian and enjoy the incredibly beautiful images by Alicia Lacey Photography
