Elegant + Colorful Springfield Wedding

  • 5 stems of Red “Matador” Garden Roses
  • 7 stems of “Quicksand” Roses
  • 3 stems of Red Ranunculus
  • 7 stems of White Stock
  • 6 stems of Deep Red Hypericum Berries
  • 3 stems of White Veronica
  • 4 stems of Italian Ruscus
  • 5 stems of Silver Dollar Eucalyptus

From He Loves Me Flowers… My personal floral design philosophy is that every single flower arranged in a bouquet should have a purpose. Each floral ingredient should either “shine”, compliment, fill, add texture or add movement.  All the elements should blend together harmoniously, creating a floral masterpiece, while at the same time accentuating the bride’s personality and the overall wedding celebration. 

When creating the wedding floral vision, I always ask the bride the color scheme, the style and the overall atmosphere for her wedding. As the floral designer, my goal is to create florals that fit, compliment and bring out the best in the overall event and individual person. About 90% of the time a bride doesn’t know what kind of flowers she wants (and she should not have to!) so that’s where I come in. Based on the season of her wedding, her colors, style, atmosphere, etc. I suggest floral options that I feel would be a good fit for her personality and wedding. Based on my suggestions and her feedback, I figure out what she loves! So together we come up with a beautiful mix of custom florals. 

Jaelyn’s vision for her wedding was a perfect blend of elegance, romance, and class. Her colors were crimson red and champagne with touches of white and fresh foliage. I knew she loved greenery and loose, natural, flowing bouquets with texture. For starters, we chose garden roses and ranunculus (they are one of the secrets to making a bouquet look romantically spectacular!!) and I also wanted to incorporate the quicksand roses to tie in her champagne color. I accomplished the various texture elements by adding in stock, berries, veronica and two different kinds of foliage. The texture gives a bouquet personality and genuine uniqueness, while the organic foliage gives the bouquet movement and refreshment.  The beautiful thing about Jaelyn and her family was that they trusted me completely. They gave me the keys to creative freedom which I know from experience makes all the difference and as a result, culminated in a stunning, timeless bouquet!

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!

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.

Nathan + Brittany

November 9, 2015

If anyone loves details, it’s sweet Brittany. She was so attentive to every detail and wanted to make sure her guests felt welcomed, loved, and appreciated at her beautiful vintage, elegant celebration. Everything from fresh floral garlands, foliage capped lanterns, sprinkled rose petals, lush centerpieces and romantic bouquets — Brittany wanted floral adornments throughout the crisp, pristine chapel and reception gathering. And how about that romantic sweetheart table?!?

Thanks to J Design Studios for sharing the lovely photos.

“Floret + Wax” Summer Editorial | Inspiration

November 22, 2014

This summer project “Floret + Wax” was inspired from the Ozark boulders surrounding our quaint city. For so many weddings and events, we use the similar flowers and varieties, so with this project, I wanted to incorporate all the unique, funky, and abstract flowers and use them all together. My color palette was burnt orange, rich dark plum, and shades of green.  I created two very unique bouquets; one tall and thick, the other being wide and organic. Along with those, I designed an abstract floral crown, floral necklace (my favorite!), and floral ankle bracelets.  Thanks to Michael Dameron for coming alongside my with this project and for these incredible images!
