Becca & Jon were married on January 31, in the midst of the snow/ice storm. The weather created some really tricky logistical issues but despite the headaches, their flowers – especially the bouquets – turned out to be one of my favorites to date. Those who know me well know that I’m a sucker for purple… always been my favorite color, even before it became trendy. So when Becca said she wanted bold purple flowers and gave me creative license I was thrilled!
Becca’s bridal bouquet was a mix of classic white and ivory mixed with rich purple and modern chartreuse greens. She wanted texture and visual interest, which means lots of different types of flowers. Included in her bouquet were ‘Limona’ roses, hypericum berries, freesia, ‘Picasso’ calla lilies, cymbidium orchids, spray roses, hydrangea, stock, blackberries and loops of lily grass.
For the bridesmaid bouquets, we went with a modern mix of the purples and greens using ‘Schwarzwalder’ and ‘Twilight’ calla lilies, dark purple tulips, ‘Limona’ roses, cymbidium orchids, hypericum berries and lily grass.
For her cake, Becca chose to have her cake topper be her toss bouquet. I love this simple way of “repurposing” flowers. The calla lilies and freesia were loosely gathered and tied with satin ribbon that draped down the side of the cake.
