Real Weddings: Annie and Josh

Annie and Josh are a wonderful, socially conscious couple that we had the privilege of working with this summer. I loved getting to know them through our in person meetings and their TWEETS leading up the wedding! Annie and Josh  had fun, creative, eco-friendly ideas for their wedding party flowers and centerpieces.


Annie’s bouquet was made up of hydrangeas, lisianthus and mountain mint.

Bride's Wrap  It was wrapped in beautiful, antique lace provided by the bride.

Annie and Josh The ceremony pieces were modern and unique and filled with hydrangeas, gladiolas, hanging amaranthus and lisanthus.

In addition to using locally grown flowers for the ceremony and bouquets, the couple wanted to incorporate locally grown fruit and veggies into their centerpieces. Annie and Josh provided an eclectic mix of glass bowls, urns, and stands for us to fill with locally grown fruits and veggies.

I have to say, I think these were some of my favorite centerpieces! The colors were so vibrant, each table looked unique and all of the fruit and veggies were donated to the Capital Area Food Bank at the end of the evening! What could be better!

Thanks to our flower and produce growers who provided the flowers, fruits and veggies for this wedding including: Belvedere Farm, Locust Point Flowers, Reid’s Orchard and Breidenbaugh Farm. Thanks to Classic Creations Photography for the photos of the couple. To see more photos from Annie and Josh’s wedding, check out LoCoFlo’s Flickr site.

Thanks to Annie and Josh for letting us play a small part in their special day. We wish you all the best!

  1. Ellen, our day was made all that much more special because of the beautiful work of Local Color. Every detail was so lovingly crafted and we could not have asked for a better experience working with you! We were so thrilled to be able to put together centerpieces that were both beautiful and environmentally friendly and we were so excited to have had the opportunity to donate over 100lbs of fruit and vegetables to the Capitol Area Food Bank. What a fun way to allow our decor to make a difference!

    It was such a pleasure to work with you. Thank you for contributing so much to the beauty of our wedding!
