Petal has always been a firm believer in the motto, "the details matter", and I've always been a natural gift-giver, so the idea of helping people make others feel special was a no brainer.

Fig & Gold Fall Wedding Inspiration

Romantic Wedding Flowers in Central Virginia 

garden inspired wedding flowers

Hey y'all! It's been a busy year at Petal!  One of our own got married at the end of May and Santara did not disappoint when it was finally her turn!  It was the sweetest wedding and you could tell there was so much love and support in the room.  

She used a rich color palette from a fig including creams, nude, blush, mauve, rich burgundy's and eggplants, with a touch of gold.  I love this versatile color palette because it can be used any time of the year. She used it in the Spring as an unusual twist, but could also be used in the Fall with more focus on the darker and richer colors.

Making Santara and Dwight's flowers was extra special to me but she gave me lots to room to play!  Like the paired down bridesmaid's bouquets consisting of no flowers... you heard me. NO flowers!?! I recovered and I thought there were so unique and really made her bouquet even more of a focal point.  From the simplistically elegant green vines climbing up the drapery that we put on the wooden arch to the vignettes of fruit in wooden compote dishes on each table filled with blackberries, grapes, plums, and blueberries, their wedding was filled with texture, contrast, and lots of beautiful real-life wedding inspiration!

Enjoy these ridiculously lovely photos by the very talented Zack Arp  at one of my favorite venues around, located in Lexington, Virginia, Big Spring Farm.  

 Santara's bouquet was filled with clematis, sahara roses, peonies, lavender, scabiosa, ranunculus, foxglove, hellebore, eucalyptus, and other lovely flowers.

 We always leave a note to the bride thanking her for letting us be a part of her special day, listing all the flowers that are in her bouquet, and we often leave behind a vintage hankie to wipe the stems dry.

Cream & Dusty Blue Summer Real Wedding

Happy hump day, y'all!  We had the downright honor to work with sweet Summer and her groom, Louis, and create some seriously beautiful arrangements for their wedding day which happened to be on Father's Day! Cue the band! The icy color palette with loads of flowers that had texture made the bouquets pop against the cool bridesmaid's dresses and set the stage for a cool Summer evening.  We loved every bit and piece of it!

Romantic Marsala and Berry Inspired Wedding

If you know Petal, you know that we are made up of a team of beautiful people. Hearts of gold these people were born with.  They're the hardest workers you'll ever meet.  On wedding days, we don't glisten, we sweat it out like we just took an hour long cycling class and we don't even care if you catch us shoving down a cappuccino ice cream afterward. We earn those calories. We fight off bees while we stand on our tippy toes on sketchy ladders with smiles on our faces.  We race the clock, help photographers, and we should have stock in lint rollers. 

And the dear saint who has done all of the above the longest with me would be Hannah.  I remember her first day at Petal.  It was hot. July hot. And she climbed up one of those rickety ladders to hang a couple of 40 foot garlands like she had been doing it since birth. Family members were coming in and guests were hot on their heels and she was calm and consistent-I was a basket case. She's always optimistic about my ludicrous ideas and makes it her personal responsibility to keep me hydrated and to make sure that I don't lose my keys.

And... she knows how to sweep. There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who know how to sweep and those who don't.  Some just push dirt around haphazardly and I end up sneaking back in and sweeping up after them.  But Hannah can sweep, bless her! I'm lost without her. 

I'm pretty sure I annoyed her quite a few times the week of her wedding while I was working on her flowers because I couldn't help but be so darn sentimental. I'd text her daily because I couldn't work on her wedding flowers and not think of us in that very space, petaling wedding after wedding and this time it was her turn.  I was a puddle all week. 

It was an honor to create her wedding flowers and to be there to celebrate her and John's love and commitment to each other. I'm so proud of you, Hannah and thankful for being able to call you a friend and petal pusher.

 Check below for all the vendors involved in creating Hannah's romantic marsala and berry inspired wedding day!

 Hannah's bouquet was filled with dahlias, garden roses, ranunculus, peonies, scabiosa, acacia foliage, feather eucalyptus, silver dollar eucalyptus,  astilbe, and fern.
