In mid-August, designers from across the country traveled to Annapolis, Maryland for an interactive hands on floral workshop with renowned Wedding Florist Sarah Campbell of Intrigue Designs. Attendees worked with Sarah to create floral chandeliers, decadent over-sized floral centerpieces that towered over an elegantly styled table, and a flower wall that brought the entire look together.
The designers worked with exotic blooms such as Phaleonopsis Orchids from the Hawaiian Islands and robust Hydrangea blooms from the Netherlands. In addition to the hands on floral design, attendees worked with Claire Duran Weddings + Events to create a captivating masquerade styled shoot loaded with details and opulent style. Filled with deep purples, saturated pinks, and gold accents, this shoot screams luxury at its finest.
