Delaware Wedding Florist: Jennifer & Dan at Harry’s Savoy

I loved working with Jennifer and Dan for their wedding!  It was like a mini high school reunion.  Jennifer and I went to high school together along with her photographer, Brownlee Honeycutt of Honeycutt Photography, and her DJ, Mike Simmons of Must Be The Music DJs.  Their wedding took place at the beautiful Harry’s Savoy Ballroom in Wilmington, Delaware.

Jennifer and Dan decided to get married on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.  I thought it was a brilliant idea since all of their family and friends would be in town for the holiday.  Plus, all of the dancing would help burn some the calories from eating so much turkey!

Their weddings colors were plum and white. The plum added a richness and regal feel to the wedding.  I adore the orchids, roses, hydrangea, freesia, lisianthius, and stock used to create the gorgeous round bouquets.  For an added touch, we trailed Picasso calla lilies through Jennifer’s bouquet.

For Jennifer’s something old, she tasked me with the “nerve-racking” job of cutting lace from her mother’s wedding veil to wrap around the base of her bridal bouquet.  I can’t remember how much reassurance I needed before I cut into her mother’s veil. Ugh.  However, I absolutely love bringing a special and sentimental touch to a wedding.

Congratulations Jennifer and Dan!  I am so happy for the two of you!  I loved being a part of your special day!  I wish you a lifetime of happiness together.

I wanted to design unique and spunky floral accessories to compliment these incredible gowns at the Hayley Paige Trunk Show at Jennifer’s Bridal.  Most people don’t think about the endless possibilities of how to use flowers within their wedding.  I suggest going against the grain to make your wedding memorable.  Have you ever thought about wearing floral jewelry?!  Or even a floral crown or hairpiece?

Delaware Wedding Florist: Floral Stylized Photo Shoot with Meghan

I was beyond excited when Meghan volunteered to wear her wedding dress for a floral stylized photo shoot. She was originally one of my gorgeous brides!  Her wedding was full of purple and bling.  And I brought the sparkle!

I knew the perfect location for this shoot… the swinging bridge in Brandywine Park! And I automatically wanted to go with a formal black, white, and red color palette. I’ve been dreaming about creating a luscious duchess rose bridal bouquet. This was the perfect opportunity. Who says dreams don’t always come true?!

I went with red roses to had that dramatic flare.  The duchess rose is constructed out of the petals of approximately two dozen roses. There is nothing like it. I think that it adds a powerful feeling to any wedding. To add drama, I created a ruffle effect with black ribbon and trailed the black ribbon from the handle of the bouquet.  Long trailing ribbons are on trend for this wedding season.

Can you see yourself with a duchess rose bridal bouquet and your bridesmaids with round bouquets with red roses?! Can we say gorgeousness?! It’s definitely an impact statement.

What do you think about the style of this shoot?  What are you inspired by?  Do you have any suggestions for future floral stylized photo shoots?  I would love to hear from you!

I hope that these pictures inspire you for your wedding day.  Contact me today to schedule your own bridal consultation.

 

Delaware Wedding Florist: Kristin at Family Home

Kristin had the brilliant idea to have a photo shoot on the day that she had her trial run for hair and make-up. Why hasn’t anyone thought to do this before?!  It’s another excuse to get all dolled up and rock your bridal gown on a day other than your wedding day.  Sweet!

She included her mother and maid of honor.  They all dressed up in their gorgeous dresses to pose for a few pictures at the mother of the bride’s home.  They told me that they took their prom pictures in the same place!

Kristin was stunning in her bridal gown from Irini’s Originals.  Nicole Ferrara of Ferrara Photography is the talented person who captured this special moment.  The hand-tied bouquets consisted of roses, tulips, carnations, dusty miller, and evergreens.  I love these rustic winter bouquets!

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this fun photo shoot.  I wanted to congratulate Kristin on her wedding.  She was a beautiful bride!

With all of this cold, wet weather that we have had recently, I decided that I wanted to bring a little sunshine into Jennifer’s Bridal.  I cannot wait for Springtime to be here!  I repurposed a birdcage and birdbath and filled them with vibrant colors.  The floral arrangements were in a garden inspired style with lilies, tulips, daisies, garden roses, pompom mums, daffodils, irises, and hyacinths.  Can you imagine your wedding with these flowers?  Do you like the style?
