Floral Fun: My First Wedding Flowers

I'm so excited to share a few shots of the flowers I did for a lovely bride's big day in August. It was my first time doing floral work for someone professionally, so I am extremely excited to share this with you!

Rosie's wedding colors were the perfect summer palette: Peach, Coral, and Yellow. It was so much fun to play with these hues and find combinations of flowers that I felt worked really well for the feel she wanted on the biggest day of her life.

For the bride's bouquet I used: Peach David Austin Garden Roses, Peach Roses, Coral Roses, Butter Yellow Roses, Yellow Ranunculus, White Lisianthus, and White Tulips with pretty pastel toned Dusty Miller for the greenery. I loved her bouquet and the light-hearted joy that it exuded.

For the bridesmaids bouquets, I decided to use: Butter Yellow Roses, Coral Roses, Peach Roses, Tuberose, Stock, White Lisianthus, Dusty Miller, and Seeded Eucalyptus. The bouquets looked really pretty against the yellow, coral, and peach colored bridesmaid dresses that each girl wore!

For the groom's boutineer, I decided to use: a Yellow Ranunculus, a leaf of Dusty Miller, and Seeded Eucalyptus. I didn't want the boutineer to come off as too girly, so I decided to keep it very green with a pop of yellow (the bride's favorite color). I finished this off with some floral wire instead of ribbon for a more masculine look as well.

I am so grateful that Rosie allowed me to do her flowers! It was such a great first experience and I look forward to hopefully doing more floral work for weddings/events in the future.
