Megan's Wedding at Army Navy Country Club

When Megan came to me with the theme "Black Tie meets Garden Chic," I knew I had to be a part of this wedding!  She wanted lots of light colors with lots of textures and a few darker elements.  The happy couple was married at The Old Post Chapel on Fort Meyer, and their reception was at the beautiful Army Navy Country Club.  I had so much fun with these designs, and I hope you enjoy them just as much.

Meg's bouquet is one of my favorites so far.  This whimsical bouquet is made of beautiful Alabaster garden roses, silver brunia berries, white ranunculus, cream roses, local white dahlias, white scabiosa, white astilbe, white dendrobium orchids, accented with silver dollar eucalyptus leaves and silvery succulents.  That gorgeous fabric around her bouquet is actually a piece of her mother's dress (including little white buttons) which was cut to fit the bouquet.  We also attached an Irish horseshoe charm.  I loved all the personal touches!


The bridesmaid bouquets were smaller versions of the bride's bouquet!

The centerpieces also incorporated some sweet little chocolate cosmos flying high up over the other flowers as well as some feathery agonis foliage.  I loved using these darker elements to add depth to these designs.

Can we also just talk about this gorgeous ballroom??  Beautiful chandeliers and multiple fireplaces...just stunning.  It's hard to see it, but the room has a round wall full of french doors that open up to a balcony that overlooks a huge green golf course.  I was completely blown away!

Here are a few more of my favorite images.  Thank you so much to Beth at Beth T Photography for the lovely pictures!



Such fun flowers in such an elegant venue!  Stephen and Megan were a wonderful couple to work with and I am so happy to be able to share these with you!  I leave you with one last picture of the happy couple-isn't she just lovely??

More from Nina's Wedding

I finally got a few pictures of Nina and her husband, Arnab.  I love the way the pink and burgundy in the bouquet pick up the tones in her two lovely dresses.


 Isn't she just gorgeous!!??
They look like they are having the time of their lives!  I love both dresses-just gorgeous!

Vi's Wedding at the Marriott Gaithersburg Washingtonian Center

I'm so happy to share Vi's wedding with you!  Vi wanted simple white and green flowers with navy accents.  After several revisions, we came up with some gorgeous designs that even included a favorite flower to remind Vi of her grandmother.  I'm proud to say that more than half of the flowers used in this wedding were grown in the United States, something that has become increasingly important to Sweet Blossoms over the last year!

Vi's bouquet was made up of only freesia, ranunculus and tulips.  The bridesmaids carried bouquets of white tulips, to remind Vi of her grandmother.

Vi had an adorable flower girl who got to wear a one-of-a-kind flower halo made of white spray roses and sea star fern.  I love the accent of the green with the white flowers!

There was one more cutie who helped Vi make her way to the aisle.

Here are some more of my favorite pictures from the day.  Vi's married name is Vi King!  Get it?  Viking? I love plays on words!

 I love the blue ribbon details on Vi's bouquet of satin, organza and a two-toned wired ribbon to finish of her satin-wrapped bouquet.


I love when the couple has fun foot attire!  These two had real flare!  

The boutonnieres were made of white spray roses and accented with sea star fern.  I loved using the spiky leaves of the fern to incorporate green into the design.  

The altar arrangements were created with white larkspur, Bells of Ireland, jumbo white hydrangea and green hanging amaranthus.  I love the way the amaranthus dripped from the top of the vase! 

Thanks so much to Ann Hoang from Anny Photography for the beautiful images!
