Early September Wedding Out of the City

As I turned the corner with a van full of flowers and saw Merriweather Manor in Leesburg, Virginia at the top of a large hill I realized why the joyful bride and groom had decided to make the voyage our of the city.  The weather was glorious, the air easy to breathe and it felt like we were far from DC. The overall feeling was  relaxed elegance and we used deep colored local dahlias and zinnias as well as big limelight hydrangeas at the peak of their seasons.

I worked closely with Erica Fredericks from Design Cuisine on the details, she made it all come together.  This was the first wedding that I worked with photographer Tara K. Hopefully there will be many more in the future, I adore the photos.
