From the bottom of my heart, I always thank my clients for allowing us to participate in what will be one of the most memorable and cherished days of their lives. Sometimes those days becomes weeks and months and you begin to build a relationship. Coordinators can tell you this first hand since they share so many intimate details with the bride, groom and families. From the moment that Tracy Marini with Eventfully Yours introduced me to the Robucks, I knew I wanted to work with them to create their dream wedding. Charlotte (the bride) and Iris (the mom) where just so darn sweet. I cherished the thought of driving down memory lane as I visited the "barn" for the first time on Silver Lake in Leesburg. I spent some time growing up in Leesburg and worked at Silver Lake Country Club. In fact I helped open the facility way back in the late 80's. Much to my surprise it was torn down and the lot sits empty. Charlotte loved orchids and cerise and chartreuse colors. Her bouquet included Garnet Glow mini calla lilies and hand wired mini cymbidium orchid blossoms.
The girls carried a bouquet of Weber Parrot Tulips (an awesome variety with lots of textures, take a look at this link for tulips) and white mini calla lilies.
Always going above the call of duty to assist where and when I can.
Mr. & Mrs. Robuck are just a delightful couple. I enjoyed exchanging flower stories with Iris. Mr. Robuck was so accomodating even going so far as painting the silver installation that was painfully obvious after we installed the pipe and drape around the perimeter of the barn.
I just love this picture that Troy Battle captured of the flower girl. He is an amazing photographer and I can not thank him enough for being so great to work with and providing these wonderful images for your enjoyment. Be sure and clik the link to see more images of this wedding and others.
Mr. Robuck built this arbor which faced Silver Lake as the couple exchanged vows. Varying varieties of orchid sprays, ivy, variegated greenery and curly willow decorated the arbor.
An explosion of Calypso Mokara Orchids arranged in a variegated ginger leaf lined accented with curly willow brightened the table covered in a Apple Green Bengaline
Other tables included a soft and romantic pink cymbidium orchid spray tucked into a tall round vase. Pink parchment paper covered the flickering votive holders.
The cake carried the pink and green theme with a border of mini green cymbidiums and Garnet Glow mini calla lilies.
The beautiful coupled admiring their dream wedding and all the guest enjoying themselves.
I am often asked about elements that help drive the theme while remaining tasteful. I've seen these paper lanterns used and have used them myself in the past. But I always say use them in masses to provide an abundance of color and ambient lighting. So I couldn't help myself by hanging absolutely ever last lantern the client purchased. It brought the tent alive with color.
I just love this picture from across the pond (of which I wanted to build a bridge across). You can actually see all the pink in the picture it is amazing.
