Wedding Spotlight: Lauren & Jeremy’s Fairytale Wedding

On September 21st, Lauren and Jeremy got married at the stunning Airlie Gardens in Warrenton, VA. We loved all the special details and design elements that were a part of this fairytale inspired wedding. This couple’s love story is so sweet! The groom actually sold his blood for a YEAR to save up for Lauren’s engagement ring. The wedding really showed off the couples personalities: everything is fairytale inspired because of Lauren’s love of Disney and we love that the groom wore his signature cowboy boots and hat! We used flowers in shades of cream, moody pinks and purples to create a color palette that really is the perfect transition from summer to fall. We added succulents as well, for a really fun and unique look. To pull off the fairytale aesthetic we used our white wisteria trees with glass bubble balls hanging from the branches. Each bubble ball had a tea light candle as well, to add to the romantic lighting. We loved that the couple chose gold mirrors for their table numbers and white pumpkins as part of their decor! Everything about this wedding is just so sweet and personal to this couple, which really made it special. There are so many ways to honor loved ones that are no longer with us in a wedding. Jeremy decided to honor his grandfather with a quilted blanket he made, as well as by carrying his grandfathers pistol. Ofcourse this sweet couples wedding wouldn’t be complete without their dog as well. This wedding was defiantly one for the books!

What To Have Prepared For A Floral Consultation

We suposy we can give you a few pointers… wink wink

We love getting to sit down with prospective clients for their wedding floral consultations! It is where we really get to see the couple’s vision and play around with ideas. We know that not everyone knows what to have prepared before coming to their consult so here are a few things that it really helps to have!

· Most important is having your wedding date and venue booked! Knowing what your venue looks like is crucial to being able to get the aesthetic that you want for your big day.

· Know how much you’re willing to put towards your floral investment! Florals are extremely important to any wedding (I suposy we are a little biased on this fact) so knowing how much you want to spend is very helpful for us when trying to bring your vision to life!

· Bridesmaids dresses! It is incredibly helpful to have your bridesmaids dresses picked already (or at least knowing the color(s)) because everything is based around that color palette.

· Having an idea of what color scheme & theme is also good to know!

· BONUS: Having a prepared floral Pinterest board is a HUGE plus because then we can visually see what you are really envisioning.

Do not worry about knowing specific flowers you want or anything else. If you have an idea of some favorite flowers that is great but we will educate you on what’s in season, allergy friendly plants, what flowers will fit into your budget, etc!

This is the very first ‘I Suposy’ blog post! We have so many wonderful updates to share since we merged our businesses January 1, 2019.

We hit the ground running bringing approximately 65 weddings to The Rosy Posy for 2019. We focused on getting organized and opening our new studio to our wonderful “friendors”. The open house was amazing! We enjoyed delicious culinary treats provided by Purple Onion. (love and hugs to Margot!)

We were afforded the opportunity to collaborate with Wedding Wire and Pantone to showcase wedding trends and color palettes for 2019! We are still gushing over these amazing photos captured by Kir2Ben Photography. We also created florals for educational videos produced by Wedding Wire and Maggie Sottero which featured bouquet styles that work best with particular wedding gown designs. We had the opportunity to work with the very talented models Claire Mahoney and Carol Myers!

The Rosy Posy participated in the Washingtonian Weddings Love Unveiled Showcase 2019. We met so many engaged couples while also forming new relationships with talented wedding professionals in the DC area. Our creative juices went into overdrive! We designed a wedding gown made completely of florals, pampas grass and foliage. It was quite the hit and we look forward to next year!

We partnered with The Wedding Experience in which we gifted a gorgeous wedding to the winner of “A Wedding In A Week” contest. During the contest, we presented wedding trends on FOX5 Good Morning Washington! This was certainly an EPIC week for The Rosy Posy. We finished the week with the DMV Wedding Experience Expo.

We were both featured in the Washingtonian Weddings Magazine this year with real weddings designed in 2018. What an honor!

From the Portuguese Embassy State dinner to a gorgeous styled shoot at Morais Vineyard—which we’ve learned will be featured with Martha Stewart Weddings— to the Tonic & Bliss Gala hosted by Sequoia and Capital File Magazine…what a year so far!

Our team continues to grow and we are holding on tight! Our motto is “Love is a flower, you’ve got to let grow’….growing is definitely the key word! Stay tuned…and enjoy a few of these behind the scenes photos of some of our happenings and silliness!
