Kelsie and Bryant's wedding took place on a beautiful, crisp fall day. They exchanged vows over looking to beautiful Patuxent River next to a quaint cottage at Historic Sotterley Plantation in Hollywood, MD. This area of Maryland was absolutely beautiful. I had the best time exploring bot the plantation and nearby Solomon's Island on the day of the wedding.
Kelsie wore a gorgeous white, strapless gown and her bridesmaids wore flowy turquoise dresses. The groom and groomsmen wore grey suits with vests and turquoise ties. The color scheme for the event was turquoise, silver and white. After meeting with Kelsie and her mother for their bridal consultation, we decided that using bold, bright colors in the floral arrangements would look so pretty against the turquoise and silver scheme. I'm so glad we decided to do this! The bright coral, pink, yellow, purple, and lime green florals added so much life, cheer, and fun to their wedding.
The rustic pergola was a florists dream come true. I packed 40' of handmade garland, 3 floral sprays, a bag of tulle, and a few buckets of loose stems of flowers to create this masterpiece. It was bohemian feeling, bright, and so pretty. I can't wait to see how Sarah Murray Photography's photos of the bridal party and ceremony in front of this backdrop turn out!
The tented reception space was bright and airy. Each table was united with matching centerpieces. The bride and her mother collected and painted dozens of wine bottles. Each bottle was filled with baby's breath and paired with a mason jar filled with sand and a candle. Pink rose petals were scattered on each table to add just a pop of color. Mason jars filled with brightly colored blooms were placed throughout the space. Lush garlands were draped on the sweetheart table and cake table. The head table was dotted with clusters of succulents potted in mason jars.
Congratulations, Kelsie & Bryant! It was a pleasure working with you... and your mother, too! I wish you nothing but the best. May your marriage be filled with happiness, joy, and many special moments!
