June Wedding

A while back I had the pleasure of doing the flowers for a lovely bride, Ashley.

She wore an Ivory beaded strapless gown, and her bridesmaids wore Lavender strapless dresses that had a beaded bodice. The groomsmen wore all black, and the groom wore a black suit. The ties were in shades of lavender, to match the bridesmaids dresses. It was a very chic look, and enabled the bridal party to stay cool in the 100-degree weather! (even at 5pm!!)

Here's some pictures, both from the event, and the flowers before. The photographer was a friend of Ashley's, when I am able to find her name, I will give her credit. She did a fabulous job!

The ceremony was held in Ashley's mother's back yard garden, and they had a reception following. While a simple affair, it was simply stunning! Her mother's back yard is a wonderful place to have a party, even more so for a wedding!

Bridal Bouquet, with Calla Lilies
& Blue Curiosa Roses. Two of the Bridesmaids Bouquets, also with the Calla Lilies, but with Vendela Roses.

All were tied with Ivory Satin ribbon, and the Bridesmaids Bouquets had beautiful organza ribbon bows. I also attached a
lovely little pendant on the Bridal Bouquet for Ashley, it was a Champagne Diamond, to match her Engagement Ring. (she has a lovely Champagne Diamond solitaire!!) I don't have any pictures of it, but it was "something old" for her.

Corsages, Vendela Ivory Roses, and Blue Curiosa Roses with a wired ivory satin bow. Could either be pinned or worn as a wrist corsage.

Some shots of the tables & the red carpet. The centerpieces were sand-filled vases with sea shells & candles, with a scatter of rose petals on around them.
For the aisle that Ashley walked down, she found a gorgeous red carpet, and I scattered rose petals on it. Such a fun touch, the red carpet!

She was such a beautiful bride, and it shows that you don't have to spend a small fortune to have a BEAUTIFUL wedding!!

I was even able to "upgrade" all of her flowers, adding some things she didn't even expect. This is what I love about what I do, being able to provide beautiful items for a bride who may have otherwise had to go down to Costco, buy flowers, and put them together herself.

Next up, photographs from the Jackson-Barlow wedding! A last-minute affair I threw together in 7 days (it was a blast!!)
