gorgeous bridal session

I just saw the blog post for the bridal session with the blue hydrangea bouquet (see this post  of mine).  And it is absolutely gorgeous!  So check out some of the stunning pictures from the very talented Jessie Alexis Photography here:  http://jaephotography.blogspot.com

The pictures were taken at Thanksgiving Point - a gorgeous garden location that Utah brides should definitely consider for their pictures. 

Oh my goodness, I love a good garden photo shoot, especially with the beautiful evening sunlight.  Really, I love everything about these photos.  So beautiful!!

cream and apple green wedding

Oh my goodness this wedding turned into a nightmare!!  Not any fault of the bride and groom - they were wonderful to work with - just everything seemed to be going wrong.  From flowers dying inexplicably, to vases breaking, to construction traffic making it take four times as long as normal to get places, to my camera dying so I couldn't take any good pictures... oh, it was a long and stressful day!
I just hope the day went better for the bride and groom!!
But in spite of everything, I think the flowers still turned out beautifully.  I'll post the few pictures I got (some kind of gross because I took them on my phone - my camera died, remember?) And hopefully soon I'll get some pictures from the photographer that will be infinitely better than these.  But it should give you a little taste of this wedding.

The bride's bouquet - cream and green roses with white ranunculus and green hypericum berries

The groom's boutonniere - a cream rose with green hypericum berries

The wedding party flowers - a bit blurry I know... Cream roses and green berries for the women, green roses and berries for the men.  I didn't get a good picture of the maid of honor's bouquet...

The centerpiece for the head table

Green hydrangea and curly willow centerpiece

White hydrangea, curly willow, and green berries centerpiece

The flowers for the top of the cake - I didn't get a picture of them on the cake because it wasn't ready to assemble when I left.  I really really hope I get a good cake picture from the photographer!!

Definitely not the greatest picture, but you can see more of the finished result - half the tables had the hydrangea centerpieces, the other half had short round vases with green roses, and curly willow down inside the vase.

For some beautiful pictures of the flowers for their "groomal" session, check out the "sneak peek" post from a few weeks ago.

blue hydrangea bouquet

This was the bouquet for a bridal photo session this past week.  The wedding is coming up in about a month.  I love the simple but elegant color palette of blue, white, and silver.

We went with a blue hydrangea bouquet for the photo session, with a little silver and pearl brooch.

Not the greatest angle of the bouquet, but I love the blue hydrangea against the blue sky 


For the wedding, we're going with a more multi-texture design - so look forward to pictures of that in about a month!

cream and spring green wedding flowers - sneak peek

Here is a sneak peek at the cream and spring green wedding coming up this week.  This bouquet and boutonniere are from the couple's "groomal session" last week.

The bride's bouquet - cream and green roses with green hypericum berries

The groom's boutonniere - a cream rose with green hypericum berries

I'm excited for their wedding this week!  Hopefully the weather will be good, since their planned outdoor photo session got snowed out last week!  But it's looking like spring weather this week, finally!
