Real Weddings: Andrew and Alyssa

I have to say-I LOVED everything about this wedding! Alyssa and Andrew were such a great couple to work with. I met  Alyssa back in the winter when she was on a short break between trips. Alyssa is a professional musician for the US Army Field Band. She was super easy going, had a few ideas for colors and style for her flowers-but was happy to give us creative freedom to make something lovely.

The flowers in mid June were just beautiful. The bride’s bouquet was filled with dahlias, yarrow, gooseneck loosestrife, mountain mint, feverfew, campanula and a couple late blooming peonies.



Gertrudes and the BMA were a perfect venue for the summer, garden wedding.  Working there is always a joy.



As a vegetarian and lover of animals, I was especially excited about two special details of Andrew and Alyssa’s wedding. The first was a small card on each table that said: “In Celebration of our love of all creatures great and small, a donation in lieu of wedding favors has been made the Washington Animal Rescue League in honor of all the guests".”

All the flowers for this wedding came from Belvedere Farm, Locust Point Flowers and Talmar.  In case I haven’t mentioned it, our growers ROCK!

Thanks too to Jen and Marina-locoflo’s star designers and to Tiffany-for helping to deliver for the first time! She did a great job-and said she’ll definitely help again.201006_EstelPysola-387_web
