Ruthanne and Joe’s wedding took place at the Chestnut Hill Villa, a quaint little farm turned venue in Manheim, PA. Their pallet included colors that we designed with all throughout the 2018 season and expect to see more of next year. The blush and white tones accented by a deep red wine color is timeless and classy but can also take on whimsical notes when we let the stems carry the shape and texture of the designs as they will. Ruthanne wanted that free flowing look in her arbor decoration and we had so much fun bringing her vision to life! Thanks to Sarah & Issac Photography for sharing their work with us!
Heather and David’s early September wedding had all the right colors and blooms to celebrate the lightness of Summer and usher in the warm, full Autumnal tones. Their ceremony took place at the Winery at Hunters Valley in Liverpool on a bright sunny day that we had the pleasure to adorn with equally bright dahlias, roses, and lisianthus. Thanks to Lindsey Maree Photography for sharing the loveliest photos with us!
Kelly and Kevin's wedding was our first of the 2018 season and we were so very ready to get back to it when the time rolled around. The soft pastel colors and romantic yet simple style they envisioned was enough to make our hearts flutter! We are so pleased with these designs and hope you will enjoy the beautiful photos Janae Rose Photography graciously shared with us.
This stunning wedding takes us back to last Spring at the beautiful Harvest View Barn where Risa and Kerry tied the knot. Their style was classy and simple. The greens and whites of peonies, hydrangea, and eucalyptus were the perfect fit. They also chose to have some key floral accents for the ceremony and reception including a lush arbor garland, two large altar pieces to mark the beginning of the aisle, and statement centerpieces in our mercury glass urns for the tables. We are so grateful to Tree of Life Photography for the wonderful photos we get to share with you!
Hello there. We want to give you a peek into the inventory of vases that we use regularly for weddings and events here at Flourish. These vases (and more!) are available for you to rent as part of your event order or to buy individually or as set for your own personal use.
This ceramic vase is about 6 inches tall and wide, making it the perfect size for a medium centerpiece. The rustic but timeless look gives it the feel of bringing the outdoors inside to your event. The small pedestal gives the vase a little extra flair and height so arrangements can be styled to flow over the sides or rounded on top like this one.
These mercury glass vases are used constantly over the wedding season here at Flourish. They are on trend with their gold and silver shine and again, the perfect size for that middle of the table display. The long and shallow dish at the top works well for short but dynamic arrangements that flow out of the confines of the container and into your table settings. We tape a block of Oasis in the dish and design with that as our base. Despite the pretty pedestal, these vases with arrangements included still sit low to the table so they won’t interfere with conversation.
These versatile goblets are small but very functional. They can hold a statement arrangements by filling the base with oasis (above) or be filled with water and hold a generous amount of loose stems (below). We often use these mercury glass beauties for cocktail tables or for accent arrangements on card or food tables.
Another mercury glass favorite! The size of this vase is comparable to it’s oblong counterpart but it has a deeper dish and is more round in shape. Still good for centerpieces, but with this vase you can get a little more height if you want it!
We love these handy little bud vases! They are clear glass and come in three heights, all relatively short and slightly different from each other. Combine three in the center of a table or a bunch of them together in a windowsill or down the middle of a long rectangular table. They are the perfect choice if you want a few flowers to go a long way in your decoration design.
Mandy and Mitch were such a pleasure to design for and we are so happy to be able to share their beautiful wedding photos with all of you! Mandy chose some classic fall elements for her bouquet as well as some pops of the unexpected. Dahlias, sunflowers, and mums bring the autumn rich colors and feels, while succulents and eucalyptus add that fresh unique twist that blends so well here. We love when October weddings roll around and we get to add those warm tones into our floral designs. Enjoy the following photos captured by April Elizabeth Photography!
Ah, the end of September. A beautiful time for weddings both because of the often ideal weather and because our dahlias are in full bloom! Denise and Ryan’s wedding at Greystone Hall was nothing short of breathtaking, and we were honored to be part of it. The floral designs for their day were on trend in many ways; Denise’s bouquet was loose and lush, their colors were that deep wine, blush pink, and white that we can’t get enough of lately, and of course lots of silver dollar eucalyptus to pull everything together. We’re excited to share these photos with you, taken by the talented Vanessa Marie Photography.
We are so excited to release our design class list for 2019!

Elizabeth and her mom came to us with visions of abundant floral focal points for her ceremony and reception, which we were more than happy to oblige! The wedding took place at the beautiful Rock Ford Plantation venue in Lancaster County Central Park on a warm June day. Some of our favorite projects among the many unique accents in this wedding include a giant floral wreath backdrop to the ceremony, a garland to adorn the getaway VW Bug, and a floral spray to decorate the cake table. Enjoy the photos captured elegantly by Elizabeth Moore Photography.
We are excited to share another favorite wedding from this past summer. Katelin and Daniel’s special day was timed just right to be able to use our garden fresh peonies. These big lush blooms have been a long time favorite for creating full and colorful bridal bouquets that make quite a statement when carried down the aisle. Jenna Mummau Photography captured Katelin’s flowers so elegantly. Please enjoy!
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!
