Labor Day Weekend: A Sneak Peak at the Flowers

Another busy, beautiful weekend for LoCoFlo! The weather in Baltimore has finally broken and it’s perfect weather for an outdoor wedding. Each of our weddings this weekend incorporated beautiful urban and rural outdoor space into their weddings.

Maggie’s wedding took place at St John’s Episcopal Church in Glyndon Maryland. This rural setting was the perfect place for an end of summer wedding.



Jam jars filled with zinnias, ageratum, snap dragons and tuberose were place all over the ceremony and reception site include all around the perimeter of the “dancing” tent!

One of my favorite parts of this wedding was the “farm stand” that acted as a favors table. Instead of giving their guests traditional favors, the couple had LoCoFlo set up a farm stand filled with local fruits, veggies and other treats that the guests could choose from at the end of the night. The couple provided reusable grocery bags for guests to take home their food in. You have to love a couple that strives to make their wedding purchases creative and socially conscious at the same time!



Heidi’s wedding took place Saturday evening on the patio at Gertrude’s restaurant at the BMA. The bride requested deep and brightly colored flowers in jewel tone colors. She was really excited about using eclectic flowers and colors to showcase both what was available locally and her own creative style.

The bride’s daughter was the Maid of Honor.  She let me know when we met that she was not really the type of teenager that wanted to carry a big bouquet of flowers. Her dress was purple, blue and black and she wanted something interesting and unique that would compliment her dress. We made her this bouquet full of purple salvia and ageratum, fuchsia coxcomb, plumed celosia and dahlias, a few purple gomphrena and lots of mountain mint. ___________________________________________________

Callan and Jerry’s wedding on Sunday was just pure fun to work on! They live in Mt Vernon. They got married in Mt Vernon Park. The bride wore high heeled yellow vegan shoes with her tea length dress. The tables at brunch were filled with eclectic “vases” that the bride collected over the last few months including tea cups, tea pots, little animal creamers and more! They rode away on a Bicycle Built for Two (that i decorated with flowers). What more can I say? I love them!




I couldn’t help but sneak a peak at the actual wedding. I stood on the sidewalk with other passerby’ers…tearing up at this beautiful Baltimore scene!

Thanks to all of growers-you know who they are by now-but they make our work possible! Belvedere Farm, Bridge Farm Nursery, Farmhouse Flowers, Locust Point Flowers and Talmar.

Thanks to Jen, Carla and Eric for helping with design and set-up. They were awesome!

And special thanks and congratulations to this weekends great couples. I am always so happy and grateful to be part of their big days!
