Fall flowers in Clarksville Maryland

We recently met a local photographer at a wedding show and we both mentioned how much we'd like to work together on a styled editorial shoot.  Within a couple of weeks we had a plan to do a shoot in a beautiful field in Clarksville, MD with a beautiful model, some vintage items pulled together quickly.  Here are the results.  Brooke Tyson Photography

Historic Venue for an Ellicott City, Maryland editorial wedding shoot

We're so excited about this photograph of a DellaBloom bouquet taken by Lissa Ryan Photography this spring at the most amazing location.  Look at the movement in the ribbons by Silk and Willow.  Ahhh they were so soft!   It was a whirlwind day full of amazing vendors bringing their best to the day.  At the helm was Claire Duran Weddings and Events.  Watch for more luscious photos from this styled shoot with an amazing real life couple who are crazy in love.

Update:  Just in today!  This shoot was published on Elizabeth Anne Designs front page! Go check it out.

Here's one more photo to hold you over until you can click to see the rest.

Nautical weddings

Weddings on the water attract a certain type of couple.  Those who love being outdoors and being surrounded by endless water scenery!  We've been doing lots of waterfront weddings and they are becoming some of my favorites.   Here's a wonderful portrait by the water  at Celebrations at the Bay by fabulous wedding photographer Lauren R Swann  If you want to see more of  this gorgeous couple Lauren captured their love in photos here Lauren R.

 A completely different look was realized for Kristin and Matt with their choice of bright corals, pinks, and yellows with a dash of turquoise to match the water seen from the Anchor Inn.

The "Kristin" bouquet

Flowers whether soft and romantic or vivid and bright look amazing against a nautical backdrop.

Happy Valentine's Anniversary to Maryland wedding couple

Last year DellaBlooms was designing a bouquet, floral crown for a lovely bride who'd just arrived from England.  She and her groom met in LA and it's a very long story but finally she was coming back to the US to marry her sweetheart.  Snow was in the forecast and the predictions were right; there was so much snow the intended ceremony site, the Annapolis Courthouse was closed.
Ryan had their rings engraved with 2/14/14 so this wedding HAD to happen on this day.  Sobrina, the lovely bride was ready, the flowers were ready, the photographer was set, and the family was so excited for this day to arrive.  After much scrambling Ryan contacted his pastor and the bed and breakfast in town where they planned to spend the weekend.    The proprietor at the B&B said, "Yes!" and the pastor said, "Yes!"  Plan B to the rescue!

Winter wonderland wedding

At the end of 2014 I had the privilege to design flowers for a woman I first met as a little girl.  This little girl was in a third grade Sunday School class I taught quite a few year ago. 
I remember she had the best dimples and she still does. 

 Elizabeth married the love of her life at the Antrim 1844 Country House in Taneytown in December.
The "Elizabeth" bouquet

Elizabeth was such a beautiful bride and I pray she and Ryan enjoy many, many wonderful married years together.
