Flower Power

October 03, 2018. Category: fashion, Flower crown, trends, weddings

It is no surprise that what we see on the runway and in fashion magazines often finds it’s way into the weddings industry.

Fashion and weddings have so much in common – They are both a reflection of one’s style and influence. And what bigger runway for the fashion minded bride than the aisle on her wedding day?

Be it traditional, modern, or whimsical the fashion possibilities at your wedding are endless. Which leads us to the current trend that we and everyone else just can’t seem to get enough of – the Flower Crown.

As we all know, the September issue of Vogue is this most anticipated issue of the year, and this year it did not disappoint! It featured not one but two icons on the cover: Beyoncé, for American Vogue, and Rihanna for British Vogue both wearing flower crowns which clearly solidifies that this trend is here to stay!

There was no shortage of ornate flower arrangements on the runways this spring either. Rodarte created incredible big and bold flower crowns to compliment their breathtaking gowns which we are obsessed with and Chanel added embellished veils to its romantic flower crowns.

Now the only question is, will flower crowns continue to make their way into weddings and how?

One of our sweetest brides incorporated her spin on a flower crown on her wedding day and we loved it!

It was the perfect compliment to her gorgeous gown and added just the right of whimsy for her outdoor soirée.

Congratulations Julie and Justin

September 16, 2018. Category: anniversary, Ballroom Wedding, real wedding, weddings

Julie and Justin were married at The Four Seasons in Washington DC.

The couple’s visions was a “black tie garden” wedding. The bride had always wanted a ballroom wedding, but wanted to bring the outside in with lush, flowing flowers to give the sense of walking into an indoor garden.

The couple were engaged for a year and a half so there was a lot of built up energy and excitement leading up to their first look. Julie said, she “didn’t give Justin any hints on what we was wearing, what she was doing with my hair- nothing!”

When she saw him it really hit her that they were getting married- and she will never forgot the “look in his eyes of love and excitement either!”

The couple chose a delicate white and gray invitation suite by The Dandelion Patch, for their Fall Wedding.

Sweet Root Village created a circular hanging chuppah of lush white flowers & dangling greenery and so their guests sit in a semi-circle during the ceremony, this was really important to the couple, as they wanted to be surround but all of their loved-ones!

The ballroom was draped in white to give the room a softer feel and had candles; lush, asymmetrical flower arrangements; and garlands throughout the space to finish off our garden look.

Happy First Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Berger We wish you a lifetime of love and laughter!

Congratulations Jermaine and Scott

September 16, 2018. Category: anniversary, DC Wedding, fall wedding, real wedding, weddings

This handsome couple wanted a wedding that was “classic and elegant without pretense,” so they chose the Meridian House—a historic D.C. home known for its impressive European-style architecture for their gorgeous September wedding!

This dapper duo arrived to their wedding, in a 1964 Rolls-Royce with a eucalyptus garland. Amaryllis Floral & Event Design covered the doorway 
with white Tibet roses, smilax vines, bush ivy, and eucalyptus creating a stunning backdrop to welcome their guests.

Their intimate garden ceremony focused on family: Scott entered with his sisters, and Jermaine with his mom – each chose a sibling to be his “best person.”

After the couple exchanged emotional vows, guests enjoyed cocktails in the property’s grove of linden trees, then moved indoors for dinner.

The couple wanted a “romantic but modern” reception, so they opted for pillar candles on risers, chic tableware, and tall beveled glass vases filled with flowing white dendrobium orchids (along with other mixed florals).

The couple’s chic invitation suite by Cheree Berry Paper was inspired by the gilded mirrors, gold trim, and architecture of the Meridian House.

 Marigold & Grey created welcome boxes that showcased “their story,” popcorn from Scott’s home state of Iowa, Mississippi cheese straws for Jermaine, gourmet chocolates from their home in Washington D.C., homemade “Ted’s Tarts” from their favorite comfort food restaurant, and of course, a Beyoncé cookie, because they’re big fans and even chose “Halo” as the processional song for their ceremony!

Happy First Anniversary to one of the loveliest couples we have had the pleasure of knowing!

We wish you a lifetime of love, laughter and many more adventures.

Congratulations Sophie and J.D.

September 09, 2018. Category: anniversary, luxury wedding, real wedding, tented wedding, weddings

Lovingly referred to as a “Baltimore merger” by their parents. This luxury tented wedding was a dream for the A. Dominick team.

Sophie and J.D.’s perfect September soirée encompassed an enthusiasm for their home state of Maryland, in a setting familiar to the couple since childhood.

The festivities began with the couple exchanging vows in downtown Baltimore’s St. Ignatius church, where Sophie’s own parents had become Mr. and Mrs.

Followed by dinner and dancing at the bride’s parents house.

Family and friends were invited to the reception and to discover their seat at the wall of Old Bay; an indiscreet nod to the couple’s fondness for Maryland blue crabs.

At each place setting, a delightful blue crab place card clung to Champagne flutes and a monogrammed napkin delicately embroidered with the couple’s crest was the perfect finishing touch.

Custom cummerbunds adorned with Maryland’s favorite crab element were proudly worn by J.D. and his groomsmen, which included both couple’s brothers and fathers.

A treasured family heirloom, the car became a key feature of the couple’s love and marriage, appearing on both their invitation suite welcome bags!

The couple created gorgeous  custom navy + pale blue paper goods with gold accents by Cheree Berry Paper

Tiny crab illustrations, a custom monogram and a hand-drawn map on the invitation liner are just a few of the amazing details they incorporated into their wedding day!

Happy First Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Nelson. We wish you a lifetime of happiness, laughter and love!

Royal Wedding

May 15, 2018. Category: bride, Royal Wedding, weddings

We all love a great love story in this industry and even more so if it is a modern day fairytale.

The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is only 5 days away, and it is no surprise that we are all very excited for all of its pomp and pageantry!

So before we are all glued to the television at 5am on May 19th, so see THE dress, the fascinators, the Queen and everything else in between, we thought it would be fun to share who our favorite royal brides are and why.

AimeeGrace Kelly.  I just love the idea of the fairytale old Hollywood actress and an old world prince.  Grace Kelly’s modest lace dress is so timeless.  A bride could wear that in a church today and it would still be chic and stunning!

ChristinaPrincess Sofia of Sweden is my choice. Anyone that can go from a reality TV princess to a real life Princess in a few short years is a winner in my book! I also loved that for her bridal look she took notes from the forever classic Grace Kelly and my generation’s royal, the Duchess of Cambridge. I can’t forget that she topped off her look with an emerald and diamond tiara. Stunning and timeless – not bad for a reality TV star!

Debby – Duchess of Cambridge Catherine Middleton is my choice, I don’t know what I love more, her timeless and classic style or how she has adapted to becoming “a royal” with such grace. Her Alexander McQueen wedding gown was just exquisite and the Cartier Halo Scroll Tiara which was her “Something borrowed” from the Queen was the perfect finishing touch! She really is the modern day princess.
