Historic Meridian House Wedding

Last October, I had the pleasure of designing for a special couple who were married at the historic Meridian House designed by architect John Russell Pope. This weekend is Megan and Coult’s first anniversary and I wanted to take a moment to celebrate them. Looking back through the photos by Djenno Bacvic, it’s hard to find a frame where they aren’t smiling or laughing — and not just little smiles, we’re talking big smiles that go ear to ear.


Megan and Coult’s outdoor ceremony was full of white and peach flowers, including an all white chuppah accented with greenery.


What an entrance! The gardens at Meridian House are in bloom from April to October and provide the perfect setting for a wedding. Maria Canellis, Director of Events, is an expert at making private events and weddings magical.


There’s that big smile again.


Wedding Planner Molly Radigan was hard at work on all the details behind the scenes.


I like this bird’s eye view of the party in the linden grove. Catering by Natalie Walker, Event Coordinator for Well Dunn Catering.


Sparklers and one more big smile for the road.

Happy memories of a happy couple. Congratulations on your first anniversary!

A great shot of Inbal and Bryan at Mount Vernon framed perfectly by their chuppah made of greenery. I love the emotion on their faces.

Five pretty bridesmaids, each with their own style. Don’t they look like fun?

Flower Consultations and Frequently asked Wedding Flower Questions

Do you remember in class when the teacher said "there is no such thing as a stupid question" and "if you are wondering that then chances are so are your classmates?"  Well, the same applies when it comes to wedding flowers.  I have so many brides emailing and calling wondering what the next steps are, apologizing for their lack of knowledge and feeling completely overwhelmed.
