Big News for Fearrington Florals!

We are thrilled to share that Fearrington’s exceptionally talented Floral Designer, Mary Stevens, will travel to Virginia to take part in the Chapel Designer’s workshop series next week. The workshop is hosted by fellow floral designer, Holly Chapple, founder and president of Holly Heider Chapple Flowers, and event planner and designer Mary Phan, of Very Mary Inspired and The Sketchbook Series.

The Chapel Designers workshop is an annual series Chapple founded in 2010 as a way to educate, support, mentor and encourage floral designers across the U.S. The organization has grown from 16 designers meeting in New York City, to include creative professionals from Australia, Canada and London. Membership in the Chapel Designers organization is contingent upon meeting professional goals set by the organization. These floral designers are continuously ranked highly by industry experts and by wedding couples alike for their talented creations and work.

The workshop will feature design time, business coaching, as well as hearing from many key speakers on topics such as visually communicating design ideas and the business of floral design. Attendees will be able to share creative inspiration and collaborate with each other while participating in workshop activities.

We can’t wait to hear about everything Mary learned when she returns!

Beach Style

Here at Dovecote Style, we love a good beach getaway.

But relaxation is not excuse to forgo your fashion! You can still be chic at the beach; it's so simple. We love our Matta pareos for cute beach cover-ups. The patterns and colors scream summer and there are so many ways to wear them. Plus they come in the sweetest matching bag... Full Post >

Britni & Marc

Britni and Marc tied the knot on March 7, 2015. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at the Garden Terrace, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn. How did you and your partner meet? We met through a mutual friend in Richmond, VA. Tell us about the engagement? We got engaged on a very windy and cold May day in Virginia Beach. Marc hoped for a ocean view engagement, but the weather just wouldn’t compromise. What made Fearrington the place for you to say “I... Full Post >
