bright summer wedding flowers

Occasionally I have a bride who is coming in from out of town to get married, and so we communicate through phone calls and emails and never actually meet face to face. That was the case with this wedding, although I felt like I got to know a little bit of her personality through planning her wedding flowers with her.

She wanted a very bright, summery color palette, which was a lot of fun! It certainly made for some quite cheerful arrangements.

Her colors were hot pink, yellow, orange, lime green, and a bright aqua blue. She really liked daisies, so we used yellow daisies throughout all the designs, with orange spray roses, green roses, and pink calla lilies making up the rest of her bouquet, finished off with aqua ribbon.

The flower girl's bouquet was made to mirror the bride's, but with more daisies, and much smaller. I also finished it off with a bow for a little fun, and to match the "junior flower girls" mini bouquets.

Each of the junior flower girls got a mini bouquet with one pink, yellow, and orange daisy tied with an aqua bow. So simple and cute for the little girls to hold!

All of the boutonnieres and corsages had yellow daisies as the main focal flowers. For the groom, we added a little sprig of green berries, and wrapped some aqua ribbon around the stems to tie the colors together.

For the mothers' corsages we added a little more femininity with a few orange spray roses, and an aqua bow.

And just a couple more shots of the bouquets because I love this bright palette.

Happy Summer! And congratulations to the bride and groom!

white, yellow, navy blue, and green wedding

I've gotten a bit behind on posting lately... But I'm excited to share one of my spring weddings today! The colors were white, yellow, navy blue, and green. It was a fun, bright color combo, with a fun, garden-party feel. We used navy and white striped ribbon for the bride's bouquet, and it really just brought the colors and style together nicely.

The bride wanted a more traditional white bouquet, so we used white roses, gerbera daisies, and little white "daisies" (asters) with the little green berries, and the blue striped ribbon to finish it off. The all white and roses kept it really classic, while the daisies and ribbon tied it in nicely with the style of the wedding.

I like to keep the bride and groom's flowers sort of matching, so we did a white rose to keep it classic, with the little daisies and berries and swatch of blue ribbon to bring it all together.

We brought in the yellow with the bridesmaids and groomsmen, using yellow roses with the white daisies, along with the little green berries and navy blue ribbon for the bouquets.

There's something about yellow roses that I just love. They're just such happy looking flowers! But still so classic and timeless.

For the mothers' corsages, we used white daisies, green berries, and blue ribbon. 

And for the fathers' we coordinated with the mothers, and did white daisies and green berries.

And I'll leave you with one last picture of this cute bridal bouquet.
