Labor day weekend is always a busy wedding weekend for us and this year was no exception. With 1 wedding on Friday, 3 on Saturday and 4 on Sunday we sure had our share of fun creating amazing wedding bouquets. The bouquet above was created for bride Darlene for her sea themed wedding at the Camden Aquarium. White roses accented with rhinestone starfish (that she found online) and skeleton leaves along the outer edge really gave a beach feel but in an elegant, more formal way. Darlene is the third sister that we have done flowers for!
Bride Liz had us create this elegant hand tied bouquet of Peach Donna roses. What I really love about this rose is how full and lush it opens. Not only is the shade of peach anything but boring but it also has more than one shade on the petals going from a paler peach in the center to a deeper shade along the edges.
Bride Maggie's bouquet is just so bright and fun, just like she is. Ivory roses, green berries, rhinestone accented stephanotis, purple mini callas, cream hydrangeas and accents of lime green buplerium really are perfect for a late summer wedding. We even followed this purple and natural theme into the centerpieces by creating branched arrangements (in vases the bride and groom had found themselves) and we added purple hydrangea to some and purple dangling grapes to pick up on their "wine" theme.
Bride Katherine did not want her bouquet to be the typical round hand tied. We created more of a wand effect by layering the flowers from the center down. Blue delphinium, two tone roses, blue thistle and green berries really make for an eye catching bridal bouquet for her! The perfect style bouquet for her Grounds for Sculpture wedding.
Because her bouquet is still waiting for her in the cooler, I don't want to spoil the surprise of bride Nicole's gorgeous and natural wedding bouquet. I did want to share the lovely way she incorporated these sweet, tiny picture frames of loved ones weddings onto the stems of her hand tied bouquet.
We really had fun working on bride Candice's bouquet, especially because of how the brides maids bouquets were created. The idea was that each brides maid carried a mixture of flowers in shades ranging from creams to deep burgundy. So for example, one bouquet was whites and creams, one was creams and pale yellows, one was yellows and peaches, the next was peach and orange, the next being orange into reds, then reds into burgundy (for the maid of honor) and then Candice's bouquet included an elegant mixture of all the shades. We used flowers such as stock, berries, gerbers, roses, orchids and even mini callas.
Well, that's all I can share right now. One wedding down and three to go today and I always like the bride to be the first to see her bouquet! Did you have a favorite from the bouquets above? If you were getting married tomorrow, would one of these bouquets be perfect for you? So many choices but all beautiful in their own way!
