I found out about Alicia of Bella Fiori through her very useful and practical blog Flirty Fleurs, which she cowrites with Chuck of BLOOM, whom I wrote about in this over-the-top wedding post.
At first when I looked at this ranch wedding, I thought that those were chair flowers!!! I had never seen such large chair posies before, but after a quick, closer look I realized they were in vases. I like how dramatic it is, and a good alternative to having a chuppuh or arch.
Per Alicia, "When the bride first told us her vision for her wedding day décor she mentioned the movie What Dreams May Come. We took that vision and created her aisle full of color, bright pinks, purples, blues and lime green." It does in fact look like a painting, and very vibrant. Normally these colors together can get dull, but the wild yet modern structure provides a beautiful vibrancy sprucing up the otherwise neutral venue.
I'm not a huge fan of cascading bouquets, but the small, proportionate size of this really shines. I like everything about this, the use of texture, the color, and those fringe parrot tulips. I don't know about other florists, but for me, these types of bouquets are more challenging to construct, so I appreciate the mechanics of this piece! It has a nice variety of soft, exotic, and tropical, and is very well-balanced. Great job Alicia!
The parasol below is made of blush pink dendrobrium and cymbidium orchids. I like how delicate it is, and I'm sure the bride had a lot of fun posing with it for photos.
