I wanted to post this wedding from last year’s wedding season, because I loved the beautifully dramatic cascading bouquet, with the classic mixture of white blooms with simple greenery. The bride asked for the length of the bouquet to be extreme…and that it was. When I delivered it, I assured her that if it were TOO MUCH, we could always scale it back. Her eye lit up, and she answered, “no it’s perfect!” This amount of drama may not be for everyone, but for her, it was just what she wanted.
When I first met with the bride, Jerelyn, I knew she had a modern style, and wanted her wedding to be beautifully unique. She and her fiance DIY-ed the hexagon and geometric elements of their wedding. In our meeting, she drew out the ideas she had for the custom built floating hexagon shelves and the gold and grey geometric centerpieces. I knew the flowers needed to match the modern feel. So we kept the color pallet soft and dusty (to coordinate with the beautiful dusty lavender bridesmaid’s dresses), and we chose flowers and greenery that weren’t too traditional looking. My favorite was the blackberry and the white scabiosa that were perfect to stick up out of the arrangements, calling attention to themselves. Second favorite was the lilac, perfect to add texture and length to the bride’s cascading bouquet.
