Liberty View Ballroom | Independence Visitor Center

Spring has sprung and the Open House at Liberty View Ballroom was so much fun & has me in the mood for Summer! Before I jump the's a little taste of the evening and what this place has to offer! Brûlée Catering rolled out new menu items, Master Bakers showcased beautiful and tasty cake, Cuba Libre served up classic Mojito's! Thank you Ann Marie Casey Photography for capturing it all on Film!

Alyse & Matt | NCC Wedding

Alyse and Matt tied the knot at the NCC this past weekend & I have to admit - I had a hard time giving these babies up! I can not wait to see the official images from their wedding photographer Amie Schroeder (who's images are sure to be better than these from my phone!) Natalie Diener was their planner & the day went off with out a hitch. Here's a sneak peek at the beauties....
Bridesmaid One: Berzelia!
Lucky Girl #2: Green Hydrangea
Beauty a laTres: Green Trick Dianthus
 Lovely Lady #4: Green Cymbidiums
Rounding the corner is miss number 5: Green Parrot Tulips
Pretty #6 (maybe my fav?): Leucadendron
and the Bride herself...a little bit of everything:
I miss you lovelies!

Emile & Joe | Loews Hotel

We don't usually take more than one wedding per day - but how could we pass this up? Emilie had based her inspiration off of this pillow...and I love a gal who's inspired! Kate LaRosa was the planner and the evening was pulled off with out a hitch at the Loews Hotel on the 33rd Floor. This is one of my favorite room(s) for an event. The building was built in 1932 and was designed by architects William Lescaze and George Howe - and that 33rd Floor was intended for the Board of Directors...think forward thinking "Mad Men."

Now these shots are nothing compared to what I am sure their official photographer Sharyn Frenkel took - but while we wait with bated are a few detail shots to hold us all over!
We knocked out some "Color Saturation" bouquets for the Bridesmaids and an "All Color" bouquet for the Bride...
Then a few more stripes for the ceremony...
and the centerpieces pulled it all together...
...along with the city view that tied in with all the printed materials (cute table numbers!) and the pillows themselves made an appearance too!
And a pre-honeymoon Thank You is an amazing way to start off the week:
Hi Judith, I just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you how much I loved the flowers and how beautiful everything looked. And thank you again for accommodating our last minute requests...Joe and I head out on our honeymoon on Wednesday, but after we return I will be sending you a more formal thank you/recommendation. (I just couldn't wait to tell you how perfect everything was!) Thanks! Emilie

Samantha and Lou | Le Méridien

I met Samantha and her mom way back in August at Le Méridien Hotel via Sofia Negron. If you haven't been there yet - grab a date and swing by for a cocktail. You will be in love. "Originally a YMCA, the hotel is housed in a 10-story Georgian revival-style structure with intriguing historical flair, located in the heart of the city's business district and less than one block from the Pennsylvania Convention Center."

Sam had some definite ideas as to what she liked; and what she didn't. I get along great with people who can make decisions - we were a match! That being said - she did have a very short "Must Have" list: Peonies. White. Barely cracked open. (Insert audible gasp from me!) Now, I love making dreams come true as much as the next designer - but promising a Spring flower in December is skating on thin ice. Crisis averted...slightly cascading, barely open - dream come true...Check!
We brought some color into the Bridesmaids with beautiful garden roses and light pink peonies
Sam and Lou were hitched and all was set at Le Méridien...each of the tables were a little different in design but all built withe the same floral types:tulips, hydrangea, roses and striking black candlesticks that picked up the curves and details of the room.
Sam and her mom collected all of these spent shot - 'cause they fit the color pallet and it's a nod to a sport Dad would appreciate.
Yep - Oreo Cake!
And then the fun really began!
Special thanks to Amanda Chrin from Le Méridien for making our job so easy! Sofia Negron captured so many more amazing shots than I can showcase here - check her out! And for hair that just wouldn't quit - Marcos Matos you are amazing! 
Congratulations Samantha and Lou - I loved being a part of your wedding!

Style Studio | Autumnal Equinox

I thought we could celebrate the First Day of Autumn (aka Autumnal Equinox) with some pretties in the studio...having AMC's new studio in Bryn Mawr is getting a little too convenient!

Listen kids, Fall doesn't have to be boring -or orange, red and yellow for that matter! This lovely has a ton of texture and shades that add to the richness of the season with a 'just gathered' elegance. I love the pop of blush in the ribbon wrap. We tucked in some silvery grey Tillandsia, striking Paphiopedilum orchids with an amber and burgundy blush, scattered a few white Israeli Phlox finished off with fistfuls of Bush Ivy with their black berries still intact.
 Have pretty - will travel!

Jenna & Anup | Galeria Artesano

It was such a delight to be part of Jenna and Anup's wedding this summer. Angela Malicki coordinated their day and Ivan Roa Osuna made sure every detail from art to cuisine was in place at Galeria Artesano. Thank you Lori & Neville of Stringer Photography for sharing these lovely moments! Judith Campbell and Campbell Studios created some feminine bouquets and styled centerpieces that fit the space as well as Jenna's personal sense of style! Jenna looked beautiful, Claudia Seyler Make Up by There are too may pictures to pick just one favorite!
And these don't really have much to do with flowers - but are such great examples of Stringer Photography's style I couldn't resist. Thank you for sharing these images on your blog Lori & Neville! The last one should be in a magazine!

Lauren and Dixon | Overbrook Golf Club

I got such a nice "Thank You" note from Lauren & Dixon this week. I had the opportunity to work with them and their families for their wedding on June 30th. The Ceremony took place Media Presbyterian and the Reception at Overbrook Golf Club.  I did the Wedding Coordination as well as the Event Design & Floral Decor. (I loved her bouquet so much I could barely hand it over!) I can't wait to share some of the images that Philip Gabriel captured when they are available...we will have a full post when they are!

Until then check out this beautiful "Coming Soon" trailer by CinemaCake for some of the highlights of their gorgeous day!

Style Studio | Spring 2012

Sometimes it's fun to make pretty things just because we's a few shots from a new little section I am going to start posting - I like the call it the "Style Studio." Ann Marie Casey and I had a super fun day styling some bouquet shots - Thanks AMC Photography!

This little beauty has so many of my favorites all together: lovely white Hellebore (hella yeah!) with touches of their bright green leaves, delicate pink Ranunculus & the Cirrus Dusty Miller that I still can't seem to get's just so pretty!

Wedding Showcase at the National Constitution Center

Sofia joined me again for another Max and Me event last week. This time it was the winter edition of their Wedding Open House at the National Constitution Center.

These events are fun since it is such a collaboration. Max and Me work together with the NCC to decide on a color palette and they bring in all the linens, chairs, place settings etc. All the things that they can showcase from their packages that they both offer. Then Campbell Studios joins the fun and bring the ideas together with a floral table design that ties in all the elements. They like to do a display for each season - which is a little tricky since it's January & summer stuff is not in season. But I think a bold use of color gets the general idea across. When summer actually rolls around - I'll use local flowers that are in season...until then happy Gerberas will do nicely!

I got a lot of great calls and feed back from this event - so here are a few quick shots from Sofia (Thanks a million for hooking me up with such a quick turn around S!) - more to follow!


Pink Peonies, Pink Hyacinth, Green Spider Mums, Scented Geranium and Pink Tulips

Magenta Gerbera Daisies, Light Pink Gerbera Daisies, Yellow Gerbera Daisies, Orange Gerbera Daisies and Preppy Grosgrain Ribbon

Yellow Cymbidium Orchids, Orange Spray Roses, Orange Garden Roses, and Magnolia

White Roses, Green Cymbiduim, Assorted Tropical Foliage

Kara and Nick

Kara and Nick tied the knot October 10th at St. John the Evangelist in Philadelphia. Kara has such as beautiful sense of style that it was particularly exciting to work with her.

She designed all of the printed materials right down to the place cards. Here is the save the date which was inspired by all of the colors in her wedding party:

Since all of the attendants has a different color dress we tied them together with the bright green splash above and Kara's favorite flower - Alstroemeria. Yellow was the only color absent from the palette so all of the flowers followed suit.

Allebach Photography captured all of the moments from the day (there are just too many good can see more on the slideshow to the right!) Rachel and Mike are an amazing team. While they are known for their edgy style, you don't need to be a 'Tattooed Bride' or a 'Rock 'n Roll Groom' to hire them. These photographers have the innate ability showcase YOUR personal sense of style on your big day with their artistic touch. The Bridal party took over the Loews Hotel, as they walked down to the church for the ceremony.

Claudia Seyler was the stylist who did all of the hair and make-up for the gals. She is always so soothing to be around - I wish she would do my hair and make-up everyday!

The reception was held down the street at the PAFA Hamilton Building, another one of my favorite places. This venue was perfect for Kara and Nick - they are so creative and artistic, it matched their personalities to a "T"! I designed the seating card display as an interactive sculpture wall to showcase the individual hand made origami flowers that Kara (and her sister Christina!) labored over...with love of course!

Then the guests moved into the main dining room where they were seated at tables that each held a unique centerpiece. All the flowers were yellow, and designed with a modern twist which complimented both the bride and the art facility itself.

and here is just one of my 'favorite moment' photos...

Meg and Matt at Cairnwood

Meg & Matt got married at The Cairnwood Mansion too. We had fun designing the floral decor to showcase their blue theme with style & texture. Adding traditional flowers such as blue Hydrangea was a lovely juxtaposition to the Heather & Thistle we used to tie in their Scottish/Irish heritage.

I had been dying to embroider monograms on a bridesmaids bouquets for what seemed like an eternity & Meg totally went for it! It looked awesome - you can't tell from these pictures, but each bouquet had long custom sewn bouquet ties that reached the bottom of the girls dresses. At the bottom each was personalized with their own monogram in blue - totally awesome.

Alison Conklin was the photographer for this wedding & I love her eye for detail. She got all of them - what do guys wear under kilts anyway?! (Don't ask!) Guests were seated out front of the mansion, where the programs were fixed to cute little fans - just incase the early June heat kicked in!

Then they proceeded inside where we carried the color and flower theme through to the tables.

Violet and Glen at Masso's Crystal Palace

I met Violet and Glen while coordinating Roger & Dana Bands Wedding. The Bands had booked a different videographer who was unable to fulfill the contract for their date - so they were referred to GM Elliott Videography.

Many of my other brides love Glen's work too so we have gotten to know each other. I was so honored to be able to do the floral decor for their own wedding. Violet loved pink so we did it up and I think the flowers look really great against the black bridesmaids dresses.

Now you have to love a girl who will let you throw things at you!
