It's always exciting when one of our past weddings is picked up by a national wedding blog such as Style Me Pretty so you can imagine our delight when we found out the wedding floral designs created for Jeff and Astrid were featured this month. Here are a few highlights from this very Elegant Princeton Wedding ~ photography by Rebecca Yale.
Over the past year or so, baby's breath has really become a staple element in our floral designs and this summer has been no exception. This weekend, we're creating floral elements for a wedding at Chauncey Hotel and Conference Center using lots and lots of baby's breath including these for the bride maids. The stems are wrapped in a burlap ribbon for a rustic feel but not as rustic as twine. The bridal bouquet will be styled in vibrantly colored flowers but keeping to the simple, vintage theme, the centerpieces will be simple baby's breath in a mason jar.
Looking forward to 2015 weddings, I can't say for sure if the baby's breath trend will continue, although quite a few of our weddings for September and October will also be using this affordable but romantic flower. Stay tuned to our website to see future floral creations!
What a fun time of year to have a wedding and we love the drama of these bouquets created for this weekends wedding. We don't often do lots of weddings in November and this year we have quite a few this year.
This bouquet was being designed for Jessica's brides maids. Ring of Fire sunflowers, Black Bacara roses along with brown hypericum berries make a striking combination, wouldn't you agree?
What I love most about this combination is the different shading and textures that each flower provides. Also, the striking yellow really pops against the dark burgundy roses. Be sure to check out our Fall Category of this website for more photos from this fall themed wedding!
If you have read my blogs in the past you'll know that I am passionate about roses and just love them to pieces. Not only are they affordable flowers that is both stunning and reliable but they come in so many different varieties; shapes, sizes and colors. Takes this new variety called Gelosia for instance. Don't you just love the color and the shape of the petals. A tea rose variety, it has many qualities you look for in a garden rose, including a high petal count. The color is amazing in person ~ a sunny yellow with just a hint of lime green along it's outer petals. This weekends wedding for bride Sara has us using this amazing rose for her bride's maids bouquets. Would you consider this rose for your wedding if your color theme included yellow?
Planning a wedding is fun but expensive and I find that often brides and grooms over think the flowers. Hydrangeas to the rescue. Take these bouquets for example; simple but by no means small yet they are elegant, natural and as amazing as it sounds, quite budget friendly.
In the case of these bouquets, extra touches such draping hanging amaranthus and chiffon ribbon took them from boring to beautiful and only slightly added to the cost.
Lesson to be learned? No need to over think the flowers and by all means, take the budget friendly route. Your maids won't mind, your guests won't notice and your wedding budget will love you for it!
