what flowers do you like?

often brides call or email me and just need some kind of starting point when it comes to flowers. they dont know where to begin, what shape, texture, and or color they like when it comes to blooms or what is available when. we have these handy little charts in the studio, but i found this collaborated one and thought hmmm good post!!! just a good jumping point for you brides just beginning bloom planning!



Kade & Ray

In April these two gorgeous people {whom I am lucky enough to know very well} got married. RayLynn reminds me so much of Emily Browning, and her groom is a handsome fellow {disclaimer: I am extraordinarily biased.} These two had simple organic style with a palette of earth tones in mostly whites & tans, with a touch of blush & eggplant. We used a plethora of blooms but I especially loved the prime anemone & ranunculus on this event! Centerpieces were kept simple with vast mono-chromatic ensembles of hydrangea and babies breath. Only the head table adorned multi bloom arrangements, in home made barn wood box planters. Single blooms were often the focus in mason jars or even on the cake, and I heart the single white ranuc in the bride’s hair. Succulents were among a focus as well, one of Raylynn’s favorite organic elements. Simple blooms that house their own texture really dominated this lovely wedding.

Congrats Kade & Ray & thank you for letting us be part of your this life changing day! And thanks to the amazing Kayleen T for sharing these amazing photos with us.

It is such an honor and compliment when we are asked to be part of any inspiration shoot, but I especially liked working with Jessica White on this colorful ensemble of Ombre inspiration. She chose pinks, oranges, and yellows as her color palette and of course ombre allowed me to play with all the tones in those ranges. We colored bottles in a subtle way just to compliment and move the ombre through the flowers: ranucs, astilbe, dahlias, crespedia, pincushions, hyacinth, and tulips. The bouquet was quiet tricky that ombre effect in a bridal bouquet is a hard endeavor to tackle and equate to looking “right” aesthetically, but we love how the texture and movement of tone worked out here. Even better yet this shoot was published on Utah Bride Blog today. Check it out here!
