Real Weddings: Laura y Sean

Laura and Sean met in Buenos Aires in 2004. After several years of friendship, dating and traveling the world together, they were married in Fells Point on September 19, 2009. I met with Laura several times over the past year-brainstorming and fine tuning the design of her flowers.


Laura wanted to keep things simple for her wedding flowers. Simple in this case meant using one color for the flowers…GREEN! Not greens-as in filler-but GREEN flowers. For the wedding party flowers we worked with just one type of flower: bright green zinnias from Belvedere Farm! They looked great against the girls dresses.

For the tables, which were set up outside of the Douglass Isaac Myers Maritime Park, Laura had a vision-and what a vision it was! It turned out perfect! Long tables were covered in brown crab paper. On top of the crab paper was  a long runner of green and brown tulle. On top of that were the striking wine bottle shaped vases that Laura ordered from CB2.

We added a few stems of brown and green broom corn as well to give the vases some variety in height.


In addition to having  a “green” color scheme, Laura and Sean created an event that was easy on the environment including working with Waste Neutral to supply compost bins on site and compostable plates and silverware.


Felicidades a Laura y Sean! Wishing you many happy years ahead!
