I’ve got to admit, I am happily welcoming the chill in the air here in Maryland. After yet another sweltering summer its time for the natural beauty of fall to take over, and provide the perfect backdrop to some amazing fall weddings!
Now onto the goodies! Jaclyn, the bride, is a professional make up artist and was a DREAM to work with! She has a great sense of style and knew just the romantic feel she wanted to create from the very beginning. This wedding was just so soft, and sweet, just made you wanna smile!
They held their waterfront wedding at Harbourtowne Golf Resort in historic St. Michaels, MD. The entire wedding, from bouquets and centerpieces to her stunning gown, was sprinkled with sparkles, pearls and rhinestones! The blush and white color palette had that classic elegance that little girls dream of!
Tristen and Tim were wed at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club in Stevensville, MD this past weekend during what can only be described as the most dreary weekend of weather in recent memory. The rainfall total was over 6 inches in a three day period! Tristen was still hopeful they could pull off an outdoor ceremony during the moments the rain held off, but just as her father began to walk her down the aisle, the skies opened up again! They made the best of it and the pictures are so cute! So I hear it’s good luck anyway right?
They decked out the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club in orange and purple which really stood out against the white walls and the gray skies.
Orchids from Thailand in orange and purple were the reception showpiece, while the bride and bridesmaids carried mini calla lilies in mango, peach and purple. Roses from Ecuador in two shades of orange accented with dark purples also adorned this lovely wedding.

Navy and emerald. Such a classic wedding combination here in Annapolis, MD. It’s sophisticated, stylish, timeless and playful all at the same time. This wedding was no exception.
Kelly and Nathan’s outdoor wedding took place at the Historic London Town and Gardens in Edgewater, Maryland. It was a steamy summer day, but that didn’t detract from the gorgeous bride and the stunning surroundings! The Gardens were in full bloom which made it the perfect backdrop for this picture perfect wedding.
The flowers were very sweet and simple with a mix of hydrangea, garden roses and hypericum berries.
What a whirlwind this summer has been! We have been blessed more than we ever could have dreamed and we are loving every exhausting minute! Here is a little snippet of our July, more to come when we finally catch our breath.
We absolutely, positively adore Herrington on the Bay in Rose Haven, Maryland! It’s the perfect spot for a waterfront wedding and they pride themselves on their Eco-friendly efforts which we love.
Now, on to the flowers! Our bride Kristina went with a pallet of persimmon and clover which blended perfectly with the grounds of the Herrington. Her bouquet was made up of bright mango calla lily, orange unique roses and accented with the timeless stephanotis pinned with rhinestones for a little bling.
Wedding season is in full swing here at Little House of Flowers and even though we are achy and exhausted we are loving every single second of it! Today we are featuring a wedding that took place at (yet again) one of our most favorite venues to work at, the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club! It is obvious why brides chose this place to tie the knot!
This wedding surely didn’t disappoint in the style department! Melissa, the bride, carried the ever wonderful Sara Bernhardt peonies. Anytime this flower makes an appearance at a wedding, it automatically steals my heart! This particular bouquet was special though. Wrapped around the stems, were mementos from family that was with her in spirit. It is always so touching to help bring those very personal pieces into a brides big day.
Her bridesmaids carried the white Festivus Maximus variety (side bar: every time I order those, or chat with a bride, or reference them on this blog, I can’t help but think of Seinfeld)
Melissa was no one trick pony though, she featured Pink Nora Mokara orchids in varying sizes of glass cylinders as her centerpieces which tied together her feminine yet classic theme.
Happy Wednesday! I’m so excited to present this wedding to you all today! I knew from the moment I met this couple we were a match made in wedding heaven. We had to actually postpone our first meeting because the Washington Nationals were in the playoffs! You have to love and respect anyone that passionate about Washington sports (and I mean really passionate as you will see below).
This wedding was so airy and sweet it just made you smile! Vintage blue jars/bottles and big bunches of classic baby’s breath scattered the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club and seamlessly complimented all of their thoughtful touches. The brides bouquet was a subtle mix of white peony and peach Juliet garden roses. Even though the bride fell head over heels for coral peonies, we decided it was a tad too bright for her low key color palette. But I couldn’t let her day get away without them, so we surprised her and added a few to her sweetheart table for her and her hubby to enjoy!
The bridesmaids carried white hydrangea accented with white spray roses and hints of baby’s breath. The guys were adorned with coral spray roses which happened to be the perfect accompaniment to their Nationals socks! Gotta love a couple who doesn’t want to
Wedding season is in full effect and we are loving it! We got to work at one of the classiest venues around this past weekend, the Peabody Library in the heart of Baltimore! If you have ever had the joy of seeing this place, you know that words can not describe how breathtaking it really is!
Elysia and Ramsey tied the knot at this historic location with the perfect game plan in place. The brides vision was to match the elegance of the Peabody using a black and white palette with lots of shimmer to create a “diamond” black tie affair. Her dress was glitzy and jaw dropping and the perfect centerpiece for this event! We let the surroundings do the talking for this one, and let the flowers act as the feminine and soft touch to this architectural beauty.
We love working on “real” events but it was a nice change of pace to design for a styled photo shoot! We got a chance to step outside of the norm, and use textures and colors we don’t get to everyday. Artichokes in a bouquet? Sure, why not! A model in ballet shoes? Absolutely! Vinatge dishes, furniture and windows strung from tree to tree? You betcha!
This shoot wouldn’t have been possible if not for the wonderful people involved. Big shout out to my fellow Annapolis, MD area wedding vendors:
To say that wedding season is in full affect here in the Gambrills/Annapolis area is an understatement. The wedding we are featuring today here at the Little House of Flowers blog is 1 of 5 that we did last weekend. This beauty of a bride grew up here in Crofton MD, but now lives in Philadelphia, PA. She knew that she wanted to give her guests the true Maryland wedding experience so of course her reception had to take place by the water. The ceremony took place at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Crofton, MD. We ADORE this church! It’s altar space is stunning, the sanctuary is neat and unique and the windows are just breathtaking!
The couple decided to have their reception at Silver Swan Bayside in Stevensville, MD. This is a VERY sought after venue sight with a spectacular view of the Chesapeake Bay. The best part, the venue has just undergone a recent renovation and it’s prettier than ever!
The wedding color palette was perfect for April in Maryland. A very Spring combo of pale yellows, light blues and soft greens. The bride went traditional with an all white bouquet while her bridesmaids carried the a collection of light blue, yellow and green. The colors ran through the reception with half the tables hosting white lanterns surrounded by sweet little vases with single stems of blue delphinium, crème roses and white freesias. The other half utlizied an elegant silver pedestal bowl filled with a lush bouquet of blue hydrangea, roses, delphiniums, all lightly green with lemon leaf. She added the appropriate nautical touch with blue and white striped tablerunners.
Side note: This has nothing to do with flowers, but as girl, who doesn’t love an adorable handbag! The bridesmaid had the joy of toting around sweet chevron clutches!
Wedding season is upon us and we couldn’t be more excited for what 2013 has in store! This past weekend we worked at the Elkridge Furnace Inn with the adorable couple, Julia and Donnie (my husband and I are “Julie and Don” so of course we were the perfect florist) whose theme was “Winter into Spring”. Maybe it should have Winter into Summer instead!
Julia was such a doll to work with and came up with the color scheme of white, light, blue and silver. So we ran with that and used light blue delphinium, ivory vendela roses, white mini calla Lillies, which were all perfectly accented with white stephonotsis pinned with crystals and baby’s breath. So sweet!
