Real Weddings: Gillian and Aaron

Gillian and Aaron were married on Memorial Day weekend in Leesburg, Virginia. I loved the color scheme Gillian had chosen: dark blues, dark purples and deep, dark pinks. I ALWAYS steer people away from blue because there are so few “true blue’ flowers available and their timing is always a gamble. Gillian was flexible and said if they were available, we should use them. Sure enough, the color scheme was perfect for the end of May this year.

The girls carried similar bouquets which looked beautiful against their blue dresses. Freed_7138_2119

The groom’s boutonniere was made up of a single, blue bachelor button, a little pop of pink from the sweet william and a couple sprigs of rosemary.


The chuppah was decorated with vibrant arrangements that were just the right size to add color and interest to the ceremony site but not take attention away from this beautiful couple.


The reception was at the gorgeous Landsdowne Resort. The views from their ballroom terrace of the rolling hills of Virginia were amazing.

Thanks to our growers for these bright beautiful flowers: Wollam Gardens, Lynn Vale Studios, Locust Point Flowers and Talmar. Thanks to Nicholas Griner and Freed Photography for these great photos. Thanks to the synagogue helpers too-they were great fun to work with!

Congratulations to Gillian and Aaron! Wishing you much happiness in the years to come!
