This year we also welcome back the very talented Floral Designer Alexis Bishop of The Green Flamingo. Last year she helped perfect our John Marshal Ballroom design team and this year we excited to see what she has up her sleeve again!
"Our passion is bringing the beauty of flowers, foliage, berries, branches and all things natural and full of texture into an event creating a seamless connection between people, spaces and nature. We enjoy trying to express a person or place’s style through these elements.
As owner, and lead designer, I have been both surrounded and inspired by gardens my entire life. I have spent my lifetime growing vegetables, flowers, specimen trees and shrubs while serving the public as a certified Horticulturist for many of those years. Today, I bring those lessons in nature and design to weddings, photo shoots, private events and corporate offices. Our floral designs have been enjoyed and admired throughout Virginia from modest social gatherings to large, southern style weddings.
Our own cutting garden provides us with over one hundred varieties of seasonal flowers. We have also cultivated relationships with numerous local growers/gardeners supplying us with fresh stems while our practices include composting, recycling and re-purposing materials to reduce our environmental impact."
