A very hot bridesmaid's bouquet of pink attache roses, orange mirage roses and green hypericum berries. The handle is finished with hot pink ribbon and wrapped with green wire. Only 3 elements but the contrasting colors make this a really effective bouquet - youthful and vibrant. Below is the bouquet with one of the sample centerpieces. There will be several other centerpiece styles in this wedding (with slightly different flowers) but all in this hot color scheme.

Here is Heather Ramsey (her bouquets were shown 2 posts ago) in all her radiant beauty. This is a great example of why being a wedding florist is so rewarding--seeing a bride (and mother) that looks and feels beautiful and happy. Taking part in creating this moment is a very special thing.

Pretty, youthful clutches of pink lilies, peach roses, pink spray roses, purple alstroemeria, yellow daisies, lavender daisies, blue delphinium, limonium and oregonia. With so many fragile elements the order that the flowers are added is very important. A good example of harder than it looks (at least for me anyway.)

Purple seems to be the trendy color for brides this year which suits me fine. Left is the bride's bouquet with 2 of the bridesmaid's. Below is a closer shot of the bride's. Hydrangea, stock, alstroemeria, green trachelium and limonium. Collared with salal.

While making this young lady a sample bouquet (terra cotta roses, orange unique roses, hypericum berries and solidago - quickly gathered) I noticed something important. Her eyes lit up and she said "oooh!" What does this mean you ask? Flowers make girls happy! This is a documented fact (see above.) Quick quiz: When is the best time to give a girl flowers? A) Birthday or anniversary B) When a random thought about her made you smile C) When you pissed her off (hint: if you answered C you are a douche. )
