Fall Wedding at Tranquility Farm

One of my favorite moments of a wedding is when I get to deliver the bouquets that we have lovingly prepared for our bride and her bridesmaids. I love the excitement and anticipation in the bridal suite as the wedding party prepares for the festivities of the day.

Our lovely bride wanted flowers that were striking and unusual with touches of black and burgundy. The bridal bouquet featured king protea, cafe au lait dahlia, blushing bride protea, sarracenia, calla lily, anemone, and the most fragrant, perfect tuberose I've ever seen. 

The wedding was held at Tranquility Farms in Purcelleville, Va. This beautiful venue boast a stone manor house, large barn, and rolling hills and gardens. The ceremony took place outdoors, followed by cocktails in the terrace garden.

Erin of A Charming Affair designed and coordinated the wedding to perfection. No detail was overlooked! The reception was held in an elegant sailcloth tent and featured candlelight, garlands, low compote centerpieces, and a greenery and floral chandelier over the dance floor.

Fall Rust Manor Wedding

Marieke and Keith celebrated their wedding at Rust Manor in Leesburg, Virginia this past fall. The historic mansion sits in a nature sanctuary and is surrounded by towering trees, classic gardens, and rolling fields. 

We wanted to showcase the wonderful colors and textures of fall in our floral design. We utilized millet, thistle, seed pods, kangaroo paw, and wheat as well as more traditional roses and fall mums. 

Many thanks to Rust Manor and to Gregorio Photography for these beautiful photos. Best wishes to the happy couple!

Colorful Fall Virginia Wedding

Kaitlyn and Rob were married on a beautiful fall day at the Woodlands at Algonkian. Kaitlyn loves jewel toned colors so we brought in reds, oranges, and purples with a touch of light blue through our flowers. The bouquets featured Kait's favorite flower, gerber daisies, along with locally grown dahlia from Don's Dahlias and Lynvale Studios as well as a few from our own cutting garden here at Lark Floral. Can't get much fresher than that!

I first met Kaitlin's mom, Kristi, years ago when we both worked at a local flower shop. She would often talk about her three daughters and it was so fun to see this family all together and these girls all grown up!

Centerpieces were a tall colorful mix of hydrangea, lily, stock, mums, gerbera daisies, willow, and greenery. In a room with very high ceilings, tall or elevated centerpieces make more of an impact.

Many thanks to this sweet family for letting us be a part of this beautiful day!

Whimsical Boho Bride Inspiration

I was asked to provide the florals for a styled shoot for the launch of makeup artist Cait Gibbon's brand, Pretty Wierd Beauty and I jumped at the chance! Cait and planner Aimee Griffin had a vision of colored smoke bombs, moss covered tables, and boho bride goodness. Check out the fun we had that day! You can also catch this shoot featured on The Perfect Palette!
