For this bouquet, I wanted to incorporate a lot of texture but all in the purple tones. I used the lilacs and the fuchsia peonies as the main focus because they are simply incredible. I used the pale purple Antheriums as a leaf texture as opposed to a flower, the deep purple plum leaves to give it a little drama, and the different types of ferns to give the bouquet a whimsical and airy feel. The purple Anemones are another personal favorite and can give a certain wildflower feeling that I love. This mixture of blooms is also super sweet smelling in addition to it’s stunning combination of purple hues.
Pinterest my current obsession…my reason for insomnia…my place for inspiration. I love it. I use it to get ideas for the house, baby’s first birthday party, what to wear and of course all things weddings! I find it to be a fantastic tool when consulting with Brides, as their is always a picture of the very exact thing that I am looking to describe! I find that it really helps the non-visual person in explaining just what it is that they are looking for. It is also great, because there is SO much beautiful creativity out there that it is constantly inspiring me to get better and think outside of the box in all aspects of my design. Could it get any better?!
And it just did a few months ago! This fabulous new site called Lover.ly is like Pinterest but purely for Weddings, whether you are planning your wedding, dreaming about your wedding, you work in the wedding industry or just plain love weddings, it’s the place to be. All of the fabulous images you see on the wedding blogs are compiled onto this lovely little site with links back to all of their original posts or credits listed for who did the work. You can save all of your most favorite images in “Bundles” and organize them however you wish and you can make it public or private, which is awesome…I have talked to so many brides who wouldn’t pin before Pinterest had the option to make things private because they didn’t want everyone to know what there wedding was going to look like! Genius! I highly suggest you go check out what they’ve got going on…they add new images daily and they are all AHHH-mazing!
Yes, they are quite unique along with the rest of this DIY wedding that My Bride Story shared with us. This is one of those weddings where it actually rained, and a few changes were made, but overall everything turned out to be perfect. Filled with the most exquisite DIY details. That were all done by the bride. This is sure to be one of those weddings you will look back on for a few ideas.
I just got a surprise e-mail from Joy Marie Photography filled with a ton of detail images from one of my very favorite weddings! I loved the flowers and the style of this whole day and even more so I LOVED how Joy Marie captured the feeling that was in the air at this wedding. I am in awe of the way that she photographs things…it is pure and simple yet so very stylish and sexy! Hope you love all of their details as much as I do!
