Classic Bride in Blue




*********************

Classic and elegant are the words I would use to describe Cynthia's style. One of the most satisfying elements of my job often occurs weeks after I've delivered my flowers, and that's seeing gorgeous photographs of the bride and her bouquet.

Although I get a chance to know my brides through the consultation process, numerous email correspondences and calls, there's nothing quite as rewarding for me as a designer than seeing the bouquet I created in the hands of the bride it was intended for.

Diane, of "Photos By Diane" did an amazing job capturing both Cynthia's beauty and excitement of the day.

June Wedding in Forsyth Park







*********************

Today was, surprise, surprise, another hot one! But a beautiful day for a wedding, nonetheless.

Congratulations to Whitney and Paul. I normally don't get the opportunity to see the bride before she walks down the aisle, but I was able to hand off her bouquet and she was so beautiful!

I can't wait for Jamie of Dreamweaver Photography, to edit the photos. The gents were dashing in black suits, crisp white shirts and hot pink ties. The bridesmaids looked lovely in their black ruffled strapless dresses. Whitney had the most unusual dress and she looked gorgeous. It was so fun seeing the bouquet "meet" her bride.

A Fresh Take on White Calla Bouquets





*********************

A look that has been consistently popular with quite a few brides is a simple handheld bouquet of white calla lilies.

Mini or large, callas are wonderful for their hardiness and classic clean whiteness, yet they can be pricey.

To give the look of a fuller bouquet while creating a unique twist (all the while respecting budget), I added Amelia roses, with their full heads, along with white spray roses.

To complete the bouquet, bear grass was looped around the base of the bouquet to add a little modern flair while the classic appeal of white roses softens the effect.

The long stem look, while elegant, can be a little "ho-hum". To add a little interest, pearl pins were added in a simple pattern.

Savannah Yacht Club Wedding in May





*********************

Lindsey McKinney and Eric Tucker tied the knot at the Savannah Yacht Club on the banks of Whitmarsh Island on a romantic misty May Saturday.

Photographer, Angela Hopper, of The Canvas Dog Studio, did an amazing job capturing the beauty of the bride and her day. Although the weather outside was gray, the energy of the wedding "popped" with color and brightness of both the wedding party and guests alike.

I was really delighted and surprised when I saw the other design elements and how they worked with Lindsey's flowers. She said she didn't need boutonnieres because she had already had them made. They, and the pillows were perfect! Such an original color scheme and what a creative endeavor!

Wedding in Savannah's Whitfield Square




*********************

This June, wedding season has descended upon Savannah with quite a bang. Weddings are simply everywhere. Despite the sultry weather, there seems to be more and more Savannah Square weddings. For many of us "natives", driving behind befuddled tourists in any of our twenty two squares proves to be quite the frustrating task. But if there's a wedding going on, no one seems to mind.

Whitfield Square, with it's romantic gazebo, is perhaps one of the most popular outdoor wedding sites in Savannah. I had the honor of creating arrangements for the bride and the groom. I'm eagerly awaiting the photos from Michael Edde, owner extraordinaire of Beacon Photo. In the meantime, I've added a few photos of Theresa and James' bouquets and boutonnieres.
