Kelly was one of the easiest brides I have ever had the pleasure of working with! She booked LML as her wedding florist nearly a year out from her scheduled wedding date, July 4th, 2014. After seeing her Pinterest board and realizing that she was planning a gardeny, nature-inspired, outdoors-themed wedding in Baltimore, I was super excited!
Kelly and Bob said their 'I dos' on the Bond Street Pier in Fells Point, MD.
Kelly had told me that some of her favorite flowers were gerber daisies, small sun flowers, black-eyed susans and most wild flowers. So, logically, I included each of these varieties in her wedding flowers.
The bride's bouquet was a mix of the brightest yellow roses you've ever seen, white garden roses, creme de la creme roses that were a lovely buttercream color, dark blue delphinium, light blue delphinium, blue allium, white lisianthis, light yellow stock, and a few types of greenery. It was organically perfect and casually arranged.
The bridesmaids carried bouquets slightly smaller than the bride's bouquet. The bouquets were wrapped in a sunflowery yellow ribbon with a strand of rhinestone chain. I'm sure that the yellow wraps contrasted nicely against the girls' royal blue bridesmaid dresses.
The groom wore a small boutonniere of yellow billy balls, a lisianthis bud, yellow solidago and was flower greens. A natural grapevine spiral peeked out over the edge of a raffia and twine wrap.
The groomsmen wore matching boutonnieres.
The father-of-the-bride and father-of-the-groom's boutonnieres had ivory ribbon accents to set them apart from the groomsmen and to match the mother's corsages.
The mothers' wrist corsages consisted of white lisianthis blooms, light yellow stock flower heads, and white larkspur heads fastened to an ivory ribbon that tied under the wrist.
Downtown Baltimore / Fells Point was bustling on Friday afternoon! Folks wearing red, white & blue were covering the cobblestone streets along the waterfront. I shared the elevator to the 5th floor reception at The Admiral Fell Inn
with some super nice individuals who were more than willing to help me carry flowers upstairs. It was super refreshing to be around people so nice especially on a busy holiday.
Kelly & Bob's wedding guests were welcomed to their reception with a cheerful blue and yellow color scheme, the sweet smell of fresh flowers, and the scent of lemony freshness!
The couple's centerpieces contained large mixtures of flowers in their color scheme that paired nicely with striped ivory linens, traditional gold damask chair covers, and photo frames filled with loveliness. The couple has traveled the country touring National Parks... their tables were marked with postcards from each park they visited as a pair as well as a personal photo of the two while at that park. Awesome, right? It made 100% sense to me since Kelly and I had been emailing back and forth about her flowers while she was hiking Sequoia National Park in California just a few months ago.
The lemon slice floral table centerpieces were created to match the Kelly & Bob's wedding cake. Kelly had mentioned to me that their cake would be covered in fresh fruit! The cake was stored in the hotel's cooler before I arrived to set up the flower arrangements and I missed out on seeing it in person, but I'm sure it looked fantastic and tasted delicious.
Cheers to Kelly & Bob on their marriage! I hope you stay as calm, collected, and as easy-going as you are as your relationship grows. Enjoy many more adventures together!
