Beth + Bryan: May 15, 2010

Referrals are so great for those of us serving brides and grooms. Not only is it a boost of confidence for me that someone would pass on my name, but it also helps reassure the potential bride that Love Is Blooming really is here to provide the most beautiful flowers she could ask for.

So on that note, I'd like to introduce Beth and Bryan! At the beginning of April, Melissa, one of the very first brides I ever worked for called me up with a request. Her younger sister Beth was getting married in a month and needed some flowers. Melissa had gone through this process with me before and was hoping I could do the flowers in time and create something unique and special for her sister. Over the course of a few conversations, we decided on red roses and perhaps a red filler for a monochromatic look. With a few creative suggestions from my end, we ended up with this:
-Red rose buds, dark red orchids, bear grass, raffia on the stem-

Beth absolutely loved her flowers. The grass loops and raffia really fit in well at their park ceremony. Being near Lake Michigan and the vineyards of Southwest Michigan gave me the inspiration to add in natural elements for a more rustic bouquet -- fitting for the farm-raised couple.

Thank you Beth and Bryan for the opportunity to make your day a little more personal, and thanks to Melissa for helping Beth choose flowers that fit her personality, her budget, and her wedding. Also a huge thanks to Ben Pancoast for these wonderful images of the happy couple!

And with that I bid adieu with a few more breathtaking photos.
