January Pick Me Up

IMG_0254

I have a wonderful client, who has an amazing boss who loves anything and everything when it comes to orchids in her flowers.It is her birthday this week and bouquet was needed. She is a fairly modern woman when it comes to her taste, but with floral design taking a turn in the more natural garden style i thought i would try to converge these two worlds in her bouquet today. I will only hear the verdict tomorrow, but I am hoping she will love it, and if not, then i will willingly sacrifice myself and accept it, and give her a more  modern structure which is also very beautiful.

A Love of Purple and Orange

IMG_0201

Ryen tied the knot on a beautiful sunny day in June at the hotel Mont-Gabriel in St. Adele. Her colour scheme was orange and purple with the bridesmaids bouquets and centerpieces to be made up solely of orange gerberas, and the bridal bouquet and maid of honor bouquet to combine her color scheme to bring it all together.When designing centerpieces and bouquets, the element which is most important to me is texture. The smoothness of the hot chocolate calla’s and the whimsy of the agapanthus play in perfect harmony the romantic layered nature of the circus roses and the hydrangea. So even though a traditional bridal bouquet is round and tight, by combining the right elements, your eye can’t help but pick up on all the dimension and beauty that the flowers have to offer.

Another way to add special interest to a bridal bouquet is through the handle. Brides can chose to add sentimental pieces like family heirlooms, or just go crazy with any fabric they love that they wanted to use in their big day but were not sure how. Ryen chose to use leftover fabric from her wedding gown, along with the material from her bridesmaids gowns, braided together and joined by pearl accents. IMG_0250But everyone knows that nothing, is ever more beautiful then the Bride on her Wedding day.
