We have two pretty, pretty, pretty weddings from Romance of Flowers for you today! First up was at the AVAM (American Visionary Art Museum) in Baltimore. Perfect study in contrasts between modern/chic, elemental design and traditional romance! When Victoria said that the venue really got their design juices flowing, she wasn't kidding! Here's a link to the post and the whole gallery of images.
From Victoria at Romance of Flowers ... We always love it when we have a bride and groom who are willing to let us cut loose and press the creative. This wedding is full of unique details that speak to the personalities of the bridal couple.
The amazing gardens of the historic Oatlands Plantation in Leesburg, Virginia was the site for the wedding and reception of these high school sweethearts. They chose this location because it represented so much of who they are. The bride, an equestrian, was just finishing her degree as a large animal veterinarian. The sweeping views of the Virginia hunt country provided a perfect backdrop. The formal, terraced gardens, boxwood allee, fountains, statuary (including a modest young man draped in a toga), architectural details and a grand stucco mansion offered romance and elegance.
A bit of whimsy greeted the guests as they approached the tent for the reception. Guarding the entrance were floral replicas of their two dogs, a Jack Russell Terrier and a brindle Boxer. The surprise continued inside the tent. The escort table with place cards was draped with a moss and flower covered tablecloth. Standing on the table in a field of grass surrounded by hydrangeas was the form of a horse with an amaranthus mane and tail.
The greens and blues of the sky and grass were chosen as the colors for the wedding.
Green orchid strings were suspended in clusters from the ceiling with strings of lights and smilax. Blue lights washed the ceiling of the tent.
The photographer, Gary Landsman and Renee Ziegler of David|Michele did an outstanding job of capturing the mood of this event and Elizabeth Bailey, the wedding planner did an amazing job pulling it all together. We always love it when we work on weddings together!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the colors and the incredibly clever designs! Our congratulations to Moira & Stinson!
