Heather and Kyle had a romantic fall “big fat Greek wedding”. Heather was the bride who had a very clear vision and knew exactly what she wanted! Heather wanted red and white roses and to incorporate broaches into her bridal bouquet and corsages! Challenge accepted and mission completed!
Heather’s bridal bouquet was a simple yet stunning! I loved the thought and sentiment that she put in to it and it was an honor to make it for her! The bouquet was made with bright red roses and two types of silver diamond and pearl broaches. The broaches alone made this bouquet special! Heather took it one step further however and provided me with tiny pictures of loved ones who were no longer with her that she wanted to add to her bouquet. I loved it! I’ve added sweet touches like this to handles of bridal bouquets before, but never this m. I really wanted this sweet sentiment to make a statement so instead of clustering the photos in the bouquet for just the bride to see and appreciate I decided to put them all around her bouquet. The final product was so lovely and so sweet!
Heather’s Maid of Honor carried a hand tied bouquet made with both red and white roses stem wrapped with a white satin ribbon, while the seven bridesmaids carried all white rose bouquets stem wrapped with a grey satin ribbon. I loved how these bouquets looked against the girls red dresses!
Kyle wore a red rose boutonniere with seeded eucalyptus greenery while his groomsmen, the dads and even the couples’ dog all wore white rose boutonnieres with seeded eucalyptus greenery.
The pin-on corsages for the moms’, aunts, etc were made with a white roses, seeded eucalyptus greenery and instead of a bow (which is the norm) we added the same style of broaches that were in the bridal bouquet! LOVED these, and loved that the ladies who got to wear them would then have a keepsake of that special day.
The sweet little flower girl got a special flower crown made with white baby’s breath and red, white and grey streamers hanging down the back! So cute!
Finally, the centerpieces! Heather chose tall clear cylinder vases with a submerged red rose resting on a mirror and surrounded by red rose petals for her thirty plus tables! To add light to the venue (open flame candles weren’t permitted), Heather chose to add LED lights to the bottom of the cylinders. The light shone through the clear pebbles and red heart pebbles at the bottom of the vase and created a beautiful glow around the venue.
Thank you to this couple for allowing me to create such an amazing bouquet! Wishing them a lifetime of health and happiness together!
