Garden-Inspired Elegance

Monday, September 15, 2008

Above and below, a lovely garden-inspired bridal bouquet from a wedding recently. This was a small, intimate affair, inspired by the art deco, vintage style of the reception location downtown. The Hotel Phillips is as lovely as it gets! The bride provided me with lots of color inspiration that she'd been collecting... she was a true flower lover and it was so much fun to work with her on this special day! Her gown was a pale pink tone... can't you just imagine this bouquet next to that color of dress? I used intensely fragrant tuber roses (seasonal and locally grown... I love to include as much local product as possible in my bouquets!). Lots of huge, open, ivory garden-style roses, sweet peas, lisianthus, hydrangea, the list goes on!

This bride was an Aussie, and we thought it would be a great touch to add a little seeded eucalyptus to her florals, just to pay homage to the homeland! :) Beyond that little bit of trivia, her colors were pale pinks, greens, and silver accents. I captured that color combination with a little seasonal addition of silver dusty miller, in addition to the eucalyptus.

Her bouts were small pink majolica spray roses for the guys, pink ranunculus for the groom, with accents of eucalyptus berries and silver dusty miller. A silver ribbon wrap completed the look. Thanks Jessica for being such an inspiring bride! I am looking forward to seeing your photos of the big day!
