    Christy is one of those amazing people who is just as nice as she is pretty. Honestly, she seriously smiles this big all the time!! It was an absolute pleasure working with her.

    Christy’s taste is classic and sophisticated with approachable style. She chose a crisp red to accent her black and white wedding. She wanted to incorporate a wintery feel without being overly “theme-y”. I typically snub a red/white bouquet because I think the contrast can be too harsh and lacking a certain sophistication. This bouquet made a believer out of me that the colors can play nicely together. The key, I believe, is lots of interesting textures and mixing the shades of red to soften the look.

    Christy’s bouquets include a mix of ranunculus, anemones, roses, lisianthus, ornithagalum, leucadendron, dusty miller, hypericum berries and seeded eucalyptus.

    I thought it might be good to do a quick recap of some of the different bridal bouquets from 2009/2010 before getting into big full wedding posts. It’s a nasty winter day here in Cincinnati and I needed a little color to lift the mood. So lets start with some sunny yellow!

    Kristi & Kevin’s August 2009 wedding was a happy mix of bold yellow and black. Her bouquet is a clutch of crystal blush mini-callas with a collar of yellow double freesia. Photo from StephCarson Photography  

    For Summer and Jack’s April 2010 wedding we went for classic spring flowers to tie in her trendy gray and yellow color palette.  Summer’s bouquet is a mix of hydrangea, Sahara roses, tulips and freesia.  Her bridesmaids carried simple groupings of bright yellow tulips.  Photo from Sherri Barber Photography

    Jenny and Steve were married on Mother’s Day Weekend in 2010.  Her bouquet was super soft and fluffy and smelled divine.  It’s made of hydrangea, roses, freesia, stock, calla lilies, hypericum berries and iris blooms.  I snagged this photo from her sister-in-law’s facebook page.  Thanks, Becky! :)

    Emily and Bryan were married in July 2010.  Look for a future post with details of their book-themed wedding.  For now, a look at her bouqet made of dahlias, china mums, roses and millet.  Photo from Steve Lyons


    Lauren and Grant were also married July 2010.  They really wanted a more earthy, eclectic vibe and highlighted the craspedia flowers throughout their wedding.  Her bouquet is a richly textured mix of craspedia, snapdragons, roses, freesia, solidago, rosemary and scented geranium bound with burlap.  Photo from Rocket Tree

    Megan and Matthew’s September 2010 wedding was held at a local art museum.  Everything about her wedding had a mix of contemporary edge with organic textures.  Her bridal bouquet was all white, but her bridesmaids carried richly textured bouquets of craspedia, mini-roses, cushion mums, succulents, brunia and dusty miller.  Photo from White Photography

    And lastly, a past bride asked for my help putting together a polished but DIY-able design for for Four Seasons Tent Rental’s booth at a bridal show.  The bouquet is hydrangea, garden roses, iris and freesia.  The centerpieces are clusters of roses, lilies and fuji mums with small yellow button mums placed at each guest napkin.  These photos were also snagged from facebook!
