Jessica and Lawrence planned a whirlwind wedding – we met with Jessica’s mother to discuss flowers just a month before the wedding! But it was pretty as a picture nonetheless. Jessica’s bridal bouquet was filled with the soft romantic textures of Cafe au Lait dahlia, peach and pale pink roses and stock with a hint of clean-lined modern with white mini- calla lilies and orchids. The bridesmaids’ bouquets featured a mix of light pink and white rose,s dahlia, stock, lisianthus and callas – all perfect choices for a summer wedding.
The ceremony took place at the Dunbarton Chapel at Howard University, where two lush floral designs flanked the couple while they took their vows.
For the reception, the couple chose Cuba Libre Restaurant, kicking things up a notch with tropical-inspired designs of green and exotic blooms. Long tables featured garlands of nagi ruscus foliage. Glass cylinder vases featured a greenery mix of baby monstera leaves accented with aspidistra and touches of India tips. For small cocktail tables, contemporary-styled bud vases held simple white cymbidium or white phalaenopsis orchid blooms.
