Taelin was a bride with a clear vision and a plan! She knew exactly what she wanted down to the very last detail and it was job and honor to make sure she got it! Taelin’s style was more loose and airy vs. compact and she was working with an ivory, burgundy, slate blue, and hints of gray color scheme.
Taelin’s bridal bouquet was very loose and airy and made with a variety of greenery that included eucalyptus and olive branch. To help with the romantic feel she was going for ivory mondial roses and black magic roses were used and for a little bit of funky and different we used thistle, misty white and added a blue toned succulent plant. To finish off the look I used ivory satin ribbon to create long streamers to hang down the front. Taelin was thrilled with the finished product and so was I!
It was important to Taelin to have a beautiful floral piece in her hair for her big day! She is a hair stylist after all. To add some beauty to the incredible hair style she gave herself, I made Taelin a comb clip with burgundy spray roses buds, thistle, misty white and both seeded eucalyptus and olive branch greenery. I loved this piece!! Flowers in a bride’s hair are always so beautiful!
Taelin’s seven bridesmaids held bouquets very similar to her bridal bouquet. Each bouquet was made with mostly greenery and then a few Black Magic roses, thistle, misty white and a succulent bloom.
Brandon and his and Taelin’s son wore matching boutonnieres made with white spray rose buds, blue thistle, misty white and olive branch greenery finished with a twine stem wrap.
The six groomsmen and dads wore similar boutonnieres to Brandon’s but made with burgundy spray roses instead of white. The three mothers all wore wrist corsages made with burgundy spray rose buds, thistle and a variety of greenery finished with a gray bow.
For the ceremony, Taelin and Brandon chose a spot right next to the lake on the grounds of The Heat Hotel. For the ceremony they had a wood log “arch” that I adorned with two floral pieces. The larger of the two pieces that sat on the top left corner was made with a large faux succulent bloom (chosen by Taelin) and white mondial roses, white and burgundy spray roses, thistle, misty white and a large variety of greenery to help with the loose and airy feel. The smaller piece went on the middle of the right pole and was made with white mondial roses, white and burgundy spray roses, thistle, misty white and a variety of greenery.
Finally the reception! Taelin chose lanterns resting on wood slabs for her centerpieces, but she wanted them dressed up a bit more! I encircled the lanterns on the wood slabs with a variety of greenery and placed three Black Magic roses around the base of the lantern. Little details really make things so lovely!
It was such an honor to create such fun and unique pieces for this incredibly beautiful bride and her new husband! I was thrilled with how it all turned out, and so was my client! Wishing these two love birds a very long and happy life together!
