We know how important flowers are to your wedding design, and that’s why we offer our couples the full G&B experience to ensure that your wedding day is cohesive and a true reflection of your unique love story.

Alyssa Wedding Planner DC Area

With a technical/engineering background, I’m the organizational brain behind G&B. I completely fell in love with the wedding industry while planning my own wedding to my highschool sweetheart in January 2015. I took a leap of faith and launched my own planning business, Lovely & Bubbly Events, in April 2015 – just 3 months after getting married!

While working as a planner, I met Lauren and we started collaborating on workshops, shoots and weddings! I was OBSESSED with her blooms, so obsessed - joining together was such a natural fit for us! My favorite aspect of wedding planning is definitely the design. I love using a couple’s unique love story as inspiration for wedding day details.

I'm currently taking time away from weddings to soak in being a new momma!

floral crowns, fluffy bouquets, and tons of greenery make me swoon!
Lauren Floral Designer Virginia Weddings

As a liberal arts (actually, criminology) nerd, it is no surprise that I’m the one with the big design ideas.  I have always been one for wedding trends and design.  As my friends were getting married, they all came straight to me to help them with planning their wedding. Quickly after launching my own wedding planning business, So Lovely Weddings & Blooms, I realized it was something I absolutely loved.  Knowing the stress of planning my own wedding, I knew I had to take the lessons I learned to help others.  

Fast forward a few years and some part time floral delivery work, and I fell in LOVE with floral design.  Bringing a bride’s vision to life and seeing her eyes light up when first seeing her bouquet - the best feeling ever.  As a full time Sales Operations Manager, my passion for teaching led me to want to introduce others to floral design. I founded The Floral Gathering in 2015, and met Alyssa when she signed up as an attendee!

Our styles and work ethic complimented each other so well, we couldn’t help but beam with excitement at the possibility of being a team!

fluffy blooms, garden bouquets and romantic wedding gowns are my obsession!
