Elegant but Organic Wedding Flowers

Three shades of roses ~ Ivory Vendela, Peach Versillia and Coral Amsterdam roses were accented with white bouvardia, peach berreis and silvery dusty miller and cut succulent plants. The bride's maids and flower girls carried similar bouquet but smaller.  For the men we create boutonnieres using similar flowers with the groom having an ivory rose to make him stand out among the men. Roses, berries bouvardia and cut min succulent plants wrapped with twine and a touch of dusty miller foliage along the back. Designer Jeneen creating all the boutonnieres while Lead Designer Alanna created all the bridal boqueuts. Organic but elegant, wouldn't you agree?
