Mary was such a fun and easy bride to work with! She found me via Thumbtack and sent me pictures of what she was looking for, the color scheme and budget and it was just that easy. I got to meet Mary (which I love doing) and her parents to chat over the details and finalize the booking- what a lovely family! I think it’s so cool that Mary and Jeff dive for abalone shells- what a cool hobby and I loved even more that they were going to be incorporating that into their décor for the wedding.
Mary wanted something polished looking for “formal” flowers with less formal greens and to create a polished/costal look. I think what we created nailed it!
Mary’s bouquet was made with AMAZING white peony, blush garden roses, blush spray roses and seeded eucalyptus greenery. I won’t lie, I was a little obsessed with this bouquet after I made it! So fun to be able to work with peony AND garden roses!! I also created a floral clip for Mary that was made with a blush garden rose, blush spray roses and seeded eucalyptus! LOVE when brides add flower clips in their hair, so pretty!
Mary had a Matron of Honor and a Maid of Honor and we wanted their bouquets just a touch different and larger than the bridesmaids’ bouquets. Both of these bouquets were made with blush garden roses, white and blush stock, blush spray roses and seeded eucalyptus. The five bridesmaids bouquets were made similarly with blush garden roses, blush stock, white spray roses and seeded eucalyptus greenery.
There were a ton of other personal flowers for this wedding. Jeff’s boutonniere was made with a blush rose, white dendrobium orchid blooms and seeded eucalyptus greenery. All the groomsmen and both the father’s had boutonnieres made with white dendrobium orchid blooms and seeded eucalyptus greenery. The mom’s wore wrist corsages made with both blush roses, white dendrobium orchid blooms and seeded eucalyptus with an iridescent bow. Finally all the aunts and other female family members wore pin-on corsages made with a blush rose, white dendrobium orchid blooms, seeded eucalyptus greenery and an iridescent bow.
Perhaps my favorite part of this wedding was the flowers for the arch piece. I loved the modern look with one larger piece in the top left corner and a smaller/different piece in the middle of the front right pole. To create these pieces I used white peony, blush roses, white spray roses, dendrobium orchids, lemon leaf and seeded eucalyptus greenery. I LOVED how this looked all completed!
For the centerpieces Mary and I decided doing two totally different centerpieces would be a cool look. For half of the tables did a cluster of three cylinder vases of staggering heights with floating candles and lemon leaf greenery along the bottom of the vases. For the other half of the tables we had a gardeny looking centerpiece made in a gold pedestal container with white stock, pink lisianthus, pink roses, white spray roses and lots of greenery that included Italian ruscus, seeded eucalyptus and lemon leaf. Beautiful!
Finally, the cake! Mary chose something so simple to decorate the cake, yet it was so beautiful! Can’t go wrong with a giant white peony with blush garden roses and very minimal greens! Stunning!
