Will never say no to donuts, margaritas, back massages or oversized urns 🙋🏻♀️ Photo by @ashleyrelvasphoto at one of our @pippinhillfarm weddings! 🌿
I’ve already started to see some amazing holiday mantel inspiration out there and I can’t wait to do mine! Photo of a gorgeous mantel install we did at the DAR in DC by @joeykennedyphoto 🌿 When do you start decorating for the holidays?
Getting inquiries from past bride’s bridesmaids is my favorite! There’s no greater compliment. I was lucky enough to do two of these gorgeous ladies’ weddings and I love them both so much! Photo by @michelleboyd!
Happy, beautiful Saturday, friends! While part of me wishes I was busy in the studio making bouquets, another part of me is grateful for the slow down, nesting stage. My body needs the break. Just a few more weeks til baby and I can’t believe it! Photo by @samoffit 🌿
Lace, lush blooms, pastel palette... sometimes the classics just bowl me over 💞 beautiful capture by @imryanray
Floral installs aren’t just for ceremonies or dance floors! I loved dressing up this dessert table with a ‘growing garden’ backdrop. Was just dreaming up a slightly similar piece for a 2019 wedding with one of my favorite planners @simplychicwed! Going to be a good one! 🌿 Photo by @vickigrafton
Currently watching (and obsessing over) Dior and I. Have you seen it? Watching another artist’s design process feeds me in a way nothing else does. Photo by @elisabricker from a wedding this spring that I particularly enjoyed designing - lots of opposing elements (soft, feminine vellum next to matte black flatware! Wood and lace! Etc etc)
Boutonnières on the studio floor. 🌿🌾🌿
Happy Friday! This isn’t a beautifully lit film portrait (though I’m blessed to have so many incredible friends who do take our portraits!) but it does represent life right now! On the go, toddler wrestling, 33 weeks pregnant - just need some flower clips in my hand! A few more things about me (since I love reading everyone else’s) - I’m the oldest of three sisters. My nana had her first child, a girl (my mom) in March, my mom had her first child, a girl (me) in March and I had my first child, a girl (James) in March - it’s family tradition apparently! I love classic Broadway musicals and grew up listening to the soundtracks. In my alternate life, I’d want to pursue interior design. I’m a 3 wing 4 on the enneagram. I only think games are fun if there’s a healthy dose of fierce competition involved. I’m a lake girl and dream of one day buying back my grandparents’ cottage in Door County, Wisconsin where all my best childhood memories were formed. Though my mom is an avid gardener and tried to get me interested as a child, I did not fall in love with flowers until after college! That’s all for now! If you’re new around here, please say hi in the comments!! 🌿 #fridayintroductions
Glory, fall is finally here. Sam gave me free rein with her bouquet and it’s still giving me all the feels. 🌾
So fun to see not one but two of my spring weddings up on @stylemepretty’s front page this week! Two really different vibes with super lush florals. Loved this golden hour shot by @elisabricker of Allie and Matt at @thecliftonweddings!
Finished up the 2018 season (7 weeks to baby!) with lots of autumnal color and local blooms for Kathleen yesterday at @pippinhillfarm with @donovangrovesevents! Can’t wait to see all the pretty film by @ashley.p.cox! 🌿
Classic color palette, whimsical styling, modern detailing. Loved this design so very much! For Molli and Brad earlier this year, captured by @vickigrafton.
Procrastinating all the bucket washing I need to be doing before my next shipment of flowers arrives. These bridesmaid bouquets are giving me life!! This wedding was SO fun to concept and design - my dear friend Sam gave me total creative freedom and I think I produced some of my best work for her because of that. When you let go, the best things happen!
Roses sourced straight from the farm - they just can’t be beat! I love finding that perfect flower that’s going to complete the palette and elevate the whole design. Lovely capture by @ashley.p.cox from earlier this year!
Thank you so much for your sweet responses to my last post! I think this photo pretty accurately describes life right now! 🌿👧🏻💞
Throwing it back to one of the first bouquets I ever made to share some exciting news!! As my family continues to grow 👧🏻👶🏻, I’ve decided to pull back and refocus on the things that really bring me life and spark my best work. And that means more flowers! While I will miss wedding planning and all its moving parts, I’m really excited to focus solely on flowers (actively booking 2019 now!) and running @emersonjamesrental. I’m so ready to have the space to dig deeper into my floral artistry and bring forth fresh new ideas! And I’m so looking forward to working with all my wedding planner friends for their clients - let’s make magic! 🌿 Photo by @erickelley with beauty by @lora_kelley
Back from our babymoon and diving into two more full weeks of flowering! Being on my feet for these long days is exhausting at 31 weeks but I wouldn’t have it any other way! Here’s an iPhone snap of Eva’s wild and carefree bouquet from a couple weeks ago. 🌿
I asked my husband what I should say about this photo and he said “three flowers; please like.”
Two weddings down and three to go before baby boy arrives! Spending today recovering from the weekend with my feet up and prepping for a little babymoon to Boston later this week! Send me your recs of where to eat, what to do and where to shop! 🌿
