Real Weddings: Katie and Tom

Katie and Tom were married at the end of October at the beautiful Elkridge Furnace Inn. This beautiful couple was a joy to work with. Not only did they have a great style they also had some great ideas for their flowers. Tom wanted to use toad lilies if they were available for both the boutonni√®res and the cake. Katie’s mom was going to bring us magnolia leaves and dried crepe myrtle from their home in Georgia for us to use in the centerpieces.  It was these personal touches that made the flowers so special.

Katie carried a bouquet of white dahlias ringed with magnolia leaves. The stems of the bouquet were wrapped with a tartan plaid which looked great with the deep green of the magnolia.


The girls carried bouquets filled with vibrant fuchsia dahlias  mixed with magnolia leaves.


The centerpieces were made in low, rectangular, glass vase filled with dahlias, dried crepe myrtle and magnolia leaves.


This cake table and cake was one of my favorites of last year.  Dahlias, dahlia petals and toad lilies covered the table and cake.


Thanks to Wollam Gardens and Locust Point Flowers (and Katie’s mom) for the beautiful flowers and greens.  Special thanks to Brian Slanger Photography for the beautiful photos.

Congratulations to Katie and Tom! Wishing you all the happiness in the world!
