We had the great pleasure of adorning Kiera and Gabe's wedding this fall with draping bouquets, long garlands, and lots of other floral accents. We are of the opinion that the more flowers the merrier and this couple and venue were a dream to work with. Adam Naples captured our work and their celebration with so much beauty and skill! We are so excited to share these images with you!
This late summer wedding is complete with all our blush favorites from lisianthus to dahlias, to those lush garden roses taking up the center stage in Rachael's bouquet. Blush has been on trend for a couple of years now and it continues to grow on us. Needless to say, we were honored to bring the florals to Rachael and CJ's wedding at Moonstone Manor and ever so grateful for Tony Gibble Photography for capturing them so well!
Annie and Evan's wedding was a really fun one for us to design. Annie requested some extra accents that we don't often get asked to do; including, pheasant feathers in her bouquet, a spread of flowers for a classic car, and an elaborate draping garland. We used sunflowers, dahlias, blue thistle, fever few, red roses, yellow mums, and eucalyptus to make her vision come to life. The two tied the knot at the Uwchlan Meeting House, a simple yet stunning backdrop for their special ceremony. Enjoy the photos captured by Julie Floro Photography!
Darian and James chose a gorgeous color palette for their wedding back in May of this year. Coral, deep purple, bright pink and lush greens are hard to beat, and to top it all off, we had our earliest peony blooms to date just in time for their special day! This bouquet showcases almost all of our most favorite flowers; peonies, stock, ranunculus, and poppies. We are so grateful to Meagan Nicole Photography for the fabulous photos she captured and shared with us. Enjoy!
Hannah and Erik's wedding was a magical mix of simple, classy, and sparkly. Hannah's bouquet was filled with soft pinks, whites, and silvery grays with garden roses, lambs ear, hypericum, lisianthus, and dahlias. The baby's breath bridesmaids bouquets and boutonnieres were a perfect compliment! Enjoy these lovely photos captured by Christie Green Photography!
Margie gave us the reigns with her wedding flowers with one request, that they be colorful! We so enjoyed putting her bouquet together with the summers best and brightest from our gardens. Delphinium, Lisianthus, Fever Few, Cosmos, Celosia, and Billy Balls are represented here. Lately we have been using tricolored sage whenever possible for greens, it has fun variegated leaves and a lovely smell. We hope you enjoy the photos Margie kindly shared with us from her photographers.
Best wishes to the bride and groom!
Spring is in full bloom here at Flourish and moving right along with the earliest peony cutting we have ever had! This wedding takes us back to the peak of last summer when sunflowers were taking center stage. Rachel graciously shared her photos with us captured by Tagna Bilden Photography, and now we share them with you.
Sunflowers are such a classic choice, you can't go wrong, and they will be blooming again before we know it!
Rob and Abby's wedding flowers were sweet bunches of brightly colored blooms that looks like they were picked fresh from a luscious garden, and they were! We were delighted to use our own bells of Ireland, larkspur, lisianthus, fever few, and cosmos (just to make a few) to bring their wedding some summer color. Enjoy the photos from Ashley Crutcher Photography!
It was a breezey beautiful day at Greystone Hall when these two said their I do's. We had the pleasure of adorning their day with white and touches of gold and greens. Emily Wren did a fantastic job capturing the beauty and we are thrilled to share her photos with you!

Noopur and Brian had a mid September wedding with the perfect fall colors to accent their Indian and American style wedding. We used a variety of late fall blooms from our fields, including, dahlias, zinnias, straw flowers, millet, and eucalyptus. All the different textures gave the bouquet a fun overall look while still creating depth and making a classy statement. Enjoy the photos captured by DP Studios.

There was a day back in June when we had quite a few weddings over the course of one weekend and Brianna's was one of them. We saved some coral charm peonies for her bouquet and added some calla lilies, spray roses, sweet william, astilbe, and queen annes lace for a really delicate and pretty arrangement. The ivy, dusty miller, and baptizia greens make the bouquets look really fresh and full of life. We're so grateful for these photos captured by Jacinta of Thirty Five and Oaks Photography. Enjoy :)
Jennifer and Andrew's wedding was so fun because they wanted flowers everywhere! We are of the opinion that flowers add so much color and life to special celebrations and the more the merrier! Some highlights for us: the flower crown for the flower girl of course, big alter piece arrangements, and a variety of shapes and sizes for the reception centerpieces. We also got to use a lot of flowers and greens from our fields which is always an added bonus for us to see the end result of our hard work. Thank you to Erin Keough Photography for the excellent photos!
The wedding season has come to a close here in October. We just did our last wedding of the season this past weekend! Now we are turning our attention towards planning and planting our fields for next year. Tara Hassler Photography graciously shared these photos with us of a wedding we did this summer. We love to use our own fresh local flowers for our weddings and this time the light blue delphinium, white lilies, larkspur, fever few, and the bells of Ireland and dusty miller all came straight from our fields! Such a joy! Enjoy these photos captured by Tara Hassler...
We thoroughly enjoyed hosting a group of ladies this month for our first fall wreath class! Donna did a great job taking us through the steps of crafting our wreaths with dried flowers, grasses, mini pumpkins and gourds, and more. The results were so unique and very festive!
Here are some things to consider if you want to try your hand at making a wreath to adorn your door this fall...
- Decide on a shape for your design. There are no set rules when it comes to styling your wreath. Depending on what you like, you may choose to take your flowers all the way around the circle or have everything resting at the bottom or going up one side, but it is good to have an idea before you start gluing anything down.
- Choose your design items. Donna suggested using about 3-5 different colors or shapes on one wreath. You don't want too many different things going on at once or your eyes will get lost. Choosing different textures and either complimenting or contrasting colors will make everything flow beautifully.
- Balance. Balance doesn't necessarily mean symmetry. Donna's demonstration wreath (above) is a good example of this. She chose a pumpkin for the focal point in the center and then used similar elements on either side but not always the exact amount of each item. Try stepping away from the wreath and looking at it from a distance to see if there is a hole that needs filled.
Glue and Hanging. Wreaths hold together best with hot glue and lots of it. Be careful not to burn your fingers and remember to hold each piece in place for a few seconds to makes sure it stays put while the glue dries. When it's time to hang your finished product, we recommend using a thick wire to make a loop towards the top of the back of your wreath. Your wreath will be much more secure if you hang it by the wire instead of mounting the base itself directly onto your door hook.
This summer was full of beautiful wedding designs and Emily and Michael's flowers were no exception. The yellow, green, and white look bright and cheery against the light blue bridesmaid's dresses. We also love the mini flower girl bouquets and the little touch of gray dusty miller. We got to use our own yellow lilies and bells of Ireland too! Enjoy the photos captured by the ever talented Janae Rose Photography.
This beautiful wedding got some media attention! We were excited to find out that our flowers made their way to an article on Philly.com featuring Ben and Beth's special day! Check out the link to view more of Addie Eshelman's excellent photos and to read about the couple's unique love story. They got married at Lake In Wood Campground which is just a few miles from Flourish and very familiar to us. Beth chose a lovely combination of coral and soft pink and we got to use our favorite coral charm peonies! We also love the flower girl bouquet and the use of succulents.
