This was the very pretty wedding of Ashley, one of my beautiful blondes getting married this fall!!! Above was an image of her church bouquet... Hot pinks and vibrant greens for this one!!!
Above and below are Ashley's GORGEOUS bridal bouquet... doesn't it look almost tropical with this vibrant color? The bright green orchids work so well because they've got that cute pink center!!! And the extra touch of the green hypericum berries really start to move us into the fall feeling for flowers!!! I love September weddings.
Her beautiful bridesmaid's bouquets... 9 of them, yes that's right, I said 9!!! She had such a beautiful wedding party... I can't wait to include pictures from photog Sara Tafoya in the weeks ahead! Her bouquets were very seasonal... hot pink dahlias, vibrant green trichyllium, green hypericum berry, roses, and others. Ashley's bridesmaid's wore the most beautiful shade of a deep green, just amazing. You know that it's a pretty dress when even my clueless husband mentions that they were cool!!! :)
Ashley did a few things to keep her floral budget to where she wanted it to be, even with such a large bridal party. First, she did a smaller bridesmaid's bouquet than I would usually do. Since there were so many girls, it really works to do a smaller scale! Also, she did her own centerpieces at the reception... isn't that amazing? Takes a lot of work, but it can be very rewarding.
