Two fun bouquets

I had a fun flower week. I love when brides come to me and want unusual flowers and colors.

The first bouquet is for Josselyn who will be married this July in a fabulous Mid Summer Night’s Dream themed wedding. To go along with the theme, she wanted a light, magical and woodsy feel to her flowers. I used white bouvardia, ferns, fresh mint, roses, lisianthus, feathers and the queen of all orchids- the cattleya orchid. This orchid is extremely delicate, but it is worth the extra care. It is a large, yet light flower with soft rippling edges. I’m so excited to put together Josselyn and Dan’s wedding in July. I love their ideas and their personalities and this wedding is sure to be an event that everyone will remember.

This bouquet is for Lindsay. I have had so much fun working with Lindsay and her coordinator, Jodi from Lindsay’s colors are light blue and chocolate brown. I did this bouquet as a quick mock up and the white flowers in the actual bouquet will be peonies- perfect for her early April wedding. Here I used Eskimo roses, light blue delphinium, green lisianthus, ranunculus, eucalyptus and my favorite…hens and chicks!

I have a special fondness for hens and chicks as they were always sprouting up all over my grandmother’s garden. When Lindsay pointed them out in a photo, I was so excited that she wanted to use them in her bouquet. I actually painted these lightly with chocolate brown and the color combination was perfect to match her bridesmaids’ dresses.

As you can see from the corner of this picture, Lindsay is also using the submerged centerpieces. More pictures coming soon!
