Workshop Fever

Over the last few years we have been working hard on our workshop program. It has given us the wonderful opportunity to meet so many new faces and collaborate with other businesses in the Richmond community. We are so grateful for the enormous amount of participation over the last several years and are looking forward to growing our workshop program even more in 2018!

Each and every wedding we work on here at Strawberry Fields is a unique opportunity to develop a relationship with our clients. We are able to understand their personality, style and help create the wedding of their dreams that reflect their individual aesthetic. Every so often a couple we know well comes into the shop to sit down and talk flowers for their big day, which is usually centered around a lot of laughing and catching up. When my best friend announced her engagement this past fall I immediately started bombarding her with flower questions, I was excited to help create something beautiful for two people who are like family to me. Knowing their individual style and color palate made the flower selection very easy and the planning process a lot of fun. Both Elizabeth and Jaime are extremely creative and active in curating their beautiful, mid century home, so I thought it would be really special to invite them to the shop to help construct the wedding flowers.

Jaime showed up with coffee in hand, for me of course (they really do know me well), and we got to work creating Elizabeth’s bridal bouquet. We played off the ivory lace from Elizabeth’s dress and used a mix of pastel colored flowers to create a simple, flowing bouquet. The trailing jasmine with its soft pink blooms gave the bouquet an organic and natural shape.

The following day Elizabeth joined me to make Jaime’s boutonniere. She wanted something simple, but still with a lot of impact. Using a peach ranunculus bloom, locally grown gomphrenea and a deep green galax leaf, Elizabeth was able to craft a stunning boutonniere.

Gather, the venue for the wedding, was the perfect intimate spot to showcase the couples love of antiques and vintage finds. The eclectic vibe of Gather inspired me to use vintage silver containers and natural greenery to accent their farm tables. Soft lighting, lots of books and tons of friends and family made for the perfect setting for this wonderful couple. Elizabeth and Jaime have a love for books, both old and new, and used a collection of varied titles as place card holders and wedding favors.

The sparkler send off at the end of the evening was the perfect way to end the night and a beautiful start to their life together.
