Adam and Allison!

Post Date: 5 / 9 / 11

This past weekend I was lucky enough to “play with my flowers” for a friend’s wedding. Adam and Allison are two of the coolest, nicest people on the planet and I was thrilled to be a part of their Big Day. More professional pictures of their wedding are forthcoming, but in the meantime, here is the bounty from the facebooks!

Allison is a landscape architect and she wanted a very textural, unusual bouquet full of succulents and funky flowers in muted tones. As a florist, I go nuts when a bride wants to deviate from the traditional and experiment outside the roses-callas box. Over the past two months, I collected every cool succulent I could find. In the end, fourteen of them were paired with hellebores, craspedia, ranunculus, tulips, seeded eucalyptus and gerbera “hearts” to make this rich, funky bouquet.

The bridesmaids carried bright, happy yellow bouquets full of parrot tulips, ranunculus, gerberas and craspedia, accented with bright green succulents.

Adam’s boutonniere was pretty cool too. I paired two green hellebores with a small echevaria succulent and added a seeded eucalyptus “tail”.

Congratulations guys! I’m so happy for you both.
