This time of year, generally brides switch into autumnal colors….radiant with golden yellows. burnt oranges, and russet. This year the early autumn weddings have been more about muted tones of coral, peach, soft green, and silver.
More than that. it’s all about texture, texture, texture. Pictured below is Grace’s bouquet. It is filled with an abundance of interesting texture, from the spikey Brovelia to smooth brown fern curls, ruffled ‘Peach Peony’ roses from Peterkort Roses to fragrance freesia and simple calla lilies. All these different textures come together to create a soft romantic northwest look. To top it off, a birch pole creates the handle of the bridal bouquet. Stunning don’t you think?
Kristin’s bouquet below creates a different story. A Juxtaposition of materials, classics meet woodland in a wildly wonderful way. Soft ‘Vendela’ roses from Peterkort Roses are paired with freesia, sweetpeas and hydrangea; all the classics. Soft dusty miller, poppy pods, and japanese anemone pods; the woodland bits.
A close up of Erin’s bouquet reveals all kinds of wonderful things. Here in a more casual garden feel for early autumn, roses are featured. ‘Peach Peony’ ‘Talea’ and ‘Alexandra’ roses come together with ‘Autumn Joy’ sedum, dried poppy pods, scabiosa pods and ‘Rabbit Foot’ ferns. Almost like you just headed out in a beautiful garden and gathered all your favorites together. Stunning yet perfectly casual for an afternoon wedding.
This tribute was ordered by a family for a well-known barber in our area. We were not surprised, when they called and ordered a Barber Pole made out of flowers. You see, that is our specialty. We like doing floral sculptures! We have created logos out of flowers, smiley faces, pather paws, why not a Barber Pole? Erik headed to the hardware store. A little of this, some of that, a few flowers….and LED Light for the top…Viola!
