so… been really behind on blogging, I know! This summer has been an absolute riot and we had so much fun with all our couples. The photos are starting to roll in and I have lots to share. Here’s a look at a few of our June couples (July and August are coming next!):
Now here’s a girl who knew what she wanted! Sarah wanted a black and white wedding with pops of big personality. She got that and then some! Peacock feathers accented everything from her dress, the boutonnieres, ceremony decor and centerpieces.
Sarah wanted… no HAD to have white anemones with black centers. Like I feared it would’ve ruined her day if she couldn’t have them. So seeing as how I’m always out to ensure that I do my part to make a happy bride I went on a mission.
Anemones aren’t just ‘kind-of’ out of season in June… they’re impossible. I tried every hemisphere on the globe to no avail. So with her options of other white and black flowers not measuring up on the sass-factor, we decided to go with silks to keep her original vision in mind. I had nightmares of cheap plastic flowers and went to the ends of the interwebz to find a high quality, life-like silk at a price point that wouldn’t break the bank. I think the final product turned out just as pretty as that infamous bouquet off Martha Stewart. Take a look…
Whitney & Nick 6.26.09
Whitney was one of my first clients. We met what seems like an eternity prior to her actual wedding. Love her, love her mother, love how much Nick just loves her and her crazy ideas.
The theme was red carpet-vintage hollywood using red, white and gold. Whitney pulled it off and then some. Her venue, her dress (props to Mr. Tony King for pushing the elbow length gloves to go with the dress… really completed the look!!), every detail reflected this theme and it all came together beautifully.
Whitney’s bouquet was an all white mix of peonies, irises, gardenias and cymbidium orchids accented with ostrich feathers. Her bridesmaids carried more dramatic bouquets of burgundy peonies, Black Bacarra roses, burgundy dahlias, cymbidium orchids and black ostrich feathers. The boutonnieres incorporated complimenting cymbdium orchids and peacock feathers.
KC & Antwan 6.26.09
This black, red and glam wedding was chock full of fabulous! Black Magic red roses were the flower for the day showing up in the bouquets, centerpieces and petals everywhere we could stuff them. Accents included Black Bacarra roses, Shwarzwalder calla lilies, burgundy dahlias, red James Storei orchids, red dogwood branches and uhule fern curls.
