Real Weddings: Jayme and Merissa

I met Jayme and Merissa at the Cloisters Open House last February. They seemed excited about local flowers and about LoCoFlo’s style. A few months later we got together for coffee and discussed their ideas for flowers and decor. These ladies has wonderfully creative ideas that I was super excited to be a part of .

Jayme and Merissa were married at the Cloisters on a warm October afternoon. We used a plethora of orange and white dahlias for the bouquets. They matched perfectly with the wedding party’s dresses and Converse sneakers!



The centerpieces were some of my favorites of the year. Low, white footed bowls filled with orange and white dahlias, locally grown apples, millet, broom corn, hairy balls (that’s what they’re called!) scented geranium and nandina berries.



The wedding and reception was full of great details showcasing the couples creativeness and their love for each other.

Special thanks to LoCoFlo designer Jen Bryant who put the centerpieces together!

Thanks to Lovestruck Photography for the amazing pictures!

Congratulations to Jayme and Merissa! Wishing you much love and happiness! And thanks for repurposing the centerpiece apples into a delish treat of spiced apples! They were awesome!

Dan and Katy’s wedding took place last September at the beautiful Vandiver Inn in Havre de Grace. It was a perfect warm, sunny Fall day for a wedding.

Celebrate Your Anniversary With Local Flowers

At the end of every year I do a short survey with our customers. I always get great suggestions and ideas from our past clients. This winter I received a suggestion from one of our 2010 brides. Rebecca writes “This is a random thought, but we loved the flowers from our wedding and the ones we took home smelled so good. Have you thought about helping out husbands (or wives) for anniversaries by offering anniversary flowers? Same time of year, similar flowers or colors as the wedding?”


How great right? So, husbands and wives, instead of buying flowers for your partner from the grocery store this year, why not get them a a bouquet of flowers reminiscent of their wedding bouquet made with seasonal, locally grown flowers. What a wonderful way to celebrate your special day! Contact Local Color Flowers for more details!

Thanks to Maggie Mudd Photography for this beautiful photo (of the much loved flowers!)
