I had a wonderful pleasure this weekend of doing flowers for a gorgeous wedding. When I met with the bride 8 months ago, she expressed that she wanted flowers that were a nod to the beautiful falls we have here in ohio, yet were still feminine and wedding worthy.
I love how the David Austin Piaget roses are a blush color with a peachy center, so I used them as the jumping off point for the design. Blush colored roses aren’t a stranger to weddings, so I needed something to get the fall flair without being overkill. I decided that I’d get a big fall look out of some decorative kale, yellow button poms and hypericum berries without being too obviously autumn.
The purple centers on the kale looked so pretty with some of the red and pink hues in the ranunculus and a very special looking burgundy gerbera daisy. My favorite part of the whole look was how the birch wrapped vases looked with the iron lanterns that were sourced by the bride and her mother.
I feel like every wedding I do is my favorite one, but this one really felt so perfect. I loved how the flowers were so colorful and quintessential fall, but still romantic and ethereal.
This wedding really solidified the reason I do flowers for weddings. Making someone’s wedding day the best it can be while doing something I love is so rewarding. I only hoped they loved it as much as I did!
I hope your week is beautiful as well!
