This was the wedding where the bride contacted me a few weeks before her nuptials to figure out the flowers! I actually loved the challenge and speediness of it. She literally gave me somewhat of an idea and palette to work with, and let us do the rest. Kinda perfect actually. Laura said, purples, yellows, oranges, and greens, and lots of texture. For her bouquet, I wanted it to stand out, and be a bit more romantic than everything else. Stay tuned for the whole album, which will be posted on the website soon.
We tend to wire a lot of orchids. I find it therapeutic. Well, the first twenty or so.
Putting together a boutonniere.
Small orange ranunculus with green hypericum (aka coffee bean). We wrapped them in satin after.
How did I build the bouquet? For this I created a WHOLE NEW technique!!!! Instead of spiraling, I made a nest of the dusty miller, and then inserted the purple lisianthus, orchids, and yellow ranunculus. It was much easier to do it this way since dusty miller has short stems. After playing around with it, I used floral tape to secure it tightly and finished with ribbon.
Voila! Good, no great, photos really make a HUGE difference. Bam!
