Melissa and Chris' wedding flowers were unlike any others that I have ever made before... and I loved them so much! The finished products were so unique and extra original. I was anxiously checking social media all day after I delivered them to see who was commenting about the flowers...
The color scheme was simple: black and white. Melissa chose a bouquet consisting of white calla lilies, white roses, black and white anemones, stock, astilbe, ranunculus & greenery. The bouquet was wrapped in black silk ribbon and pinned closed with a lovely vintage brooch.
Missy's bridesmaids carried smaller bouquets sans calla lilies. Black thistle added a nice 'pop' and texture to each bouquet. The girls' bouquets were wrapped in ivory satin ribbon that contrasted nicely against their black dresses.
The groom and his groomsmen had the prettiest little shotgun shell boutonnieres that I've ever seen. There were like little masterpieces and added some masculinity to bridal party flowers. Chris gave me a few used shotgun shells a few days before their wedding. I painted the shells black & added little white flowers to each boutonniere.
The groom's boutonniere featured a white calla lily (to match his bride), a white ranunculus, astilbe & greenery.
His groomsmen wore shotgun shells filled with single white ranunculus, white astilbe, black thistle (to match the bridesmaids) and greenery.
The couple's mothers, fathers & grandparents were pin corsages and boutonnieres made of Melissa & Chris' wine cork collection. They were so cute!
The couples dogs each took place in the wedding and wore special floral creations around their collars for the ceremony. Such a sweet idea.
A few centerpieces were created and used at the couple's rehearsal dinner as well as the reception. Each arrangement featured white floral with black accents. Corks and shotgun shells were adhered to floral picks and inserted in the arrangements to unite the theme.
Congratulations, Missy & Chris!!
