Real Wedding: Austin & Saleena

April 11, 2016

Austin & Saleena’s winter wedding was an elegant mix of rich plum, raspberry pink, navy berries and wooden, rustic elements. One of my favorite things was creating floral centerpieces in wooden logs (which the groom and his grandpa meticulously carved out by hand!!) for their reception! It was a perfect blend of natural elements with refined class. A very special piece that we created was a floral wreath in loving memory of the groom’s father; to honor his father’s life at their celebration. Thanks for having us and congratulations on your beautiful marriage and life together A+S!

Real Wedding: Cody & Lorna

February 23, 2016

An intimate wedding with family, friends and those dearest to their hearts, Cody and Lorna’s summer wedding was bursting with joy, love, freedom, and color. The florals were comprised of peach and pink roses, eucalyptus, ranunculus, stock, Italian ruscus, spray roses, garden roses and peonies. Everything we did floral wise for C+L’s wedding was my favorite! haha :) But seriously, I loved that Lorna trusted me, had incredible taste, and wanted a luscious, overflowing bridal bouquet, a 40-foot long garland (!!) and florals all throughout the romantic, quaint barn. There wedding was so pretty and many thanks to Jordan for the photos and all the great vendors below!

Modern Copper and Fuchsia Wedding Inspiration

February 11, 2016

A wintry Valentine’s day theme, this rich and romantic color scheme features copper tones with warm berry toned pinks and fuchsia. From Abby Mitchell Events, the planning and designing team, “Our inspiration truly came from the color palette. We wanted it to feel current but traditional, minimalistic but glamorous and just overall very pretty and feminine.”

For the florals, I was very strategic in choosing items that were romantic, elegant and timeless, but with fun and unexpected elements. The floral selection ranged from garden roses, ranunculus, stock, dianthus, berries and lots of rich green foliage. The organic style gave it that fun, relaxed twist.  As seen on The Perfect Palette!

Kudos to the vendor team!

Real Wedding: Travis & Amanda

February 1, 2016

Inspired by blue and white willow-pattern and lots of greenery, Travis & Amanda’s brunch wedding was full of sentimental, charming and fun details (donuts anyone?!?). The florals we selected for their celebration were a mix of white tulips (the bride’s favorite!), ranunculus, blush garden roses, white roses, stock, navy blue privet berries, and lots of foliage. One of my favorite creations that we built for T&A’s wedding was their hanging floral piece which doubled as the focal-point for BOTH the ceremony and reception! It was just lovely and highlighted the couple’s position during both celebrations wonderfully.  Congratulations on your marriage, T&A!

Icy Winter Blues: A Styled Bridal Session

January 28, 2016

From the team, “The inspiration for this styled shoot came from a desire to provide inspiration for winter brides who were in search of a fresh, lighthearted twist on your typical winter wedding.”

For the florals, we strategically picked fluffy white stock, blush-tinted peonies, along with  navy blue privet berries, grey dusty miller and silver brunia berries to accomplish the frosted, blue-toned feel. We wrapped the stems in a silvery, grey ribbon while keeping the style of the bouquet very organic and natural to compliment the romantic and airy feeling of this stunning winter editorial.
