She wore flowers in her hair and carried magic secrets in her eyes.

Some pictures are so simple and breathtaking that they capture a whole day in one frame. Inbal was a stunning October bride and I’m so happy to have a chance to share these beautiful images by Genevieve Leiper with you.

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?

Inbal’s color palette of cream, peach and dark red made for a stunning bridal bouquet and flower crown. Wedding flowers were a mix of Garden and Spray Roses, Lisianthus, and Ranunculus accented with greenery of Italian Ruscus, Seeded Eucalyptus, and Salal.

Happy First Anniversary Claire and Brendan! All White Spring Wedding at the Sagamore Pendry in Baltimore

March is here and that means it’s time to wish Claire and Brendan a happy first anniversary. Their wedding was truly a dream - they are a gorgeous couple that complements each other in every way.

The Sagamore Pendry Hotel provided the perfect backdrop for this beautiful all white wedding planned by Tiffany Rivera of Simply Breathe Events. I also had the chance to work with the fabulous Maren White; Maren is now back in town as the Director of Catering and Special Events at The Conrad Washington, D.C.

I love designing a show-stopping arrangement for the escort table. Claire and Brendan’s tall arrangement included white garden roses, hydrangea, orchids and white pear blossoms.

Claire and Brendan’s soundtrack for the night was created by DJ Kelton Higgins. Check him out - he’s wonderful to work with and is getting married himself in just a few months.

Claire carried a classic, all white rounded bouquet of David Austin Patience garden roses and peonies with just a hint of greenery. About half of my brides choose a classic style like this for their bouquet; the other half opt for something organic, wild and free flowing.

Claire and Brendan were married under an all white floral chuppah.

The couple chose tall, dramatic centerpieces to highlight the architecture of the ballroom at the Sagamore Pendry. As you can see, the centerpieces were on double duty for the wedding day - we used them for both the ceremony and the reception which is a great way to get more out of your wedding flowers.

Pear blossoms and these little blue bird ornaments gave this late March wedding a unique spring feel. Happy March, Happy Spring! And Congratulations Claire and Brendan.
