Silk Bridal Bouquet Recreation From Photos

Bill sent me a couple of photos from his wedding….52 1/2 years ago!

**First of all, can we all give him and his wife a round of applause??**

So the photos Bill sent me weren’t ideal. But he remembered some details about the flowers and colors and pretty soon his wife started chiming in with what she remembered about her bouquet. What we knew is that there were yellow Roses, white Carnations, Stephanotis, Orchids (including one with a pink center) and greenery in a cascade style bouquet. Here’s how Bill’s custom bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers turned out!

We highly recommend you...wife is ecstatic...Received the bouquet yesterday, wife is thrilled, thanks again.

This bouquet was a quick turnaround since Bill wanted to gift it to his wife for Christmas. All of our communication was over email and his quick responses made the process smooth and fast. When it was all said and done, Bill said that no local florist would attempt to recreate this bouquet in fresh flowers, which is why his search led him to me.

Whether you need a gift with a quick turnaround or you’ve got a few months to spare, contact me today about a custom bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers.

Wedding Flowers in Fall Colors | Part I

I wanted to bring some color into today because I'm needing a break from the white outside.  We just got several more inches of snow dumped on us because it's still winter here in Minnesota and who knows when it will ever end!

Anyways, here are local bride Jill's beautiful fall bouquets using some more vibrant colors instead of the typical gold, burgundy, and sage.  Here we used Tiger Lilies, red Gerbera daisies, lime Button Mums, orange/yellow Calla Lilies, and Hypericum berries.

One unique touch for the bridal bouquet was that Jill wanted to include a family handkerchief that had special meaning to her and her family.  She didn't want to make it a focal point, so we tucked it in the back where she could feel it as she walked down the aisle.

Jill really liked the look of the Callas on their own, however when we put them together, they needed a little something.  We added a bit of greenery and voila, they looked complete!

The hanky in the bridal bouquet wasn't the only sentimental touch in this wedding, check back tomorrow to see how we included a hanky in a corsage.  A corsage!  (I promise it will be worth the read.)

Real Wedding: James & Clarissa

Local couple and our friends James and Clarissa contacted me about doing the flowers for their July 22nd ceremony and of course I said yes! Clarissa came ready with color swatches, a hand drawn sketch of her ideas for the ceremony site and pictures showing what she liked for the bouquets. Having all that in hand made my job so easy and the expectations so clear. In just a matter of a few weeks we had flowers chosen, designs picked out, and we were ready to roll.

Her color palette of turquoise, spring green, yellow, and white was such a vibrant and fun combination for a summer wedding. The flowers she wanted incorporated were daisies, roses, mums, hydrangea, and some greenery. Her two bridesmaids carried smaller versions of her bouquet and the guys wore white roses with smaller accent flowers that were also found in the bouquets. Check out what we came up with together:

James and Clarissa had me create aisle arrangements hung from matching turquoise ribbon, and altar arrangement using the same flowers and colors, and centerpieces for their intimate reception at

The Northland Inn

It was an honor to attend such a beautiful occasion with my hubs and also so fun to see the flowers outside "in the wild." And now I have these stunning photos from
