Brides and their Bouquets III
It’s our third annual post of brides and their bouquets!!! Each year I become more and more in love with flowers thanks to all the weddings I get to witness. This is also a chance to show off our amazing couples, as our brides are all so unique from each other and we love to capture that.
Take a walk down memory lane to see some of our bouquets from the past:
And now! Here are some of our (my) favourite bouquets, 2012 edition! I would love to have people chime in and identify the flowers for us *please!! * Also, if you are a florist or the bride or groom, please let us know who your florist is- we love to credit them and support them in any way we can. They will also be uploaded to our facebook page, and the easiest place to chime in is there.
The first five are my top five bouquets:
1. Tammy’s colourful mix of pink and purple calla lilies, orchids, roses, AND my new favourite flower (sorry peonies, you’ve been replaced!), Anemones. This is my new favourite bouquet:
2. Kelly’s wonderfully textured bouquet with succulents (LOVE succulents!), ranunculus (also LOVE), roses, dahlias (more LOVE!), yellow button mums, and more.
3. It has always been a selfish dream of mine to photograph a wedding with a bouquet of vintage brooches.. and Lauren made my dreams come true! Even better, she gathered the brooches from her loved ones, bringing so much meaning to her arrangement.
4. I like colour. Almost all of my favourite bouquets from weddings are very colourful. However, many of our brides LOVE white bouquets. So it’s only fair that I give white a chance : ) Marian’s bouquet of white orchids, hydrangeas, and light pink roses was pieced together so perfectly…that perfect is the word that repeatedly comes to my mind when I see her bouquet.
5. I had to include Caroll’s bouquet in my top five because not only is it beautifully coloured in FUN sherbert tones, it contains another favourite of mine: Craspedia Billy Balls!! Those fun yellow balls… who doesn’t love them?!
And in no particular order at all, here are more favourites of ours!! Ahhh I love them all!
