There are so many neat possibilities when it comes to planning a winter wedding. After meeting Jessica & her mother for the first time and discussing the bride's vision for her 12/13/14 wedding, I was so excited to play a part in making her visions come to life.
Seeing as Jessica had been planning a winter wedding, I was ecstatic to hear her say she wanted bouquets of greenery and succulents... not bouquets billowing with out-of-season flowers. The bride's vision included bridesmaid dresses of various pastel colors: sage, clover, periwinkle, pale blue, and lavender with silver sparkles.
Each bridesmaid bouquet featured succulents of different varieties; all purple succulents for one maid, all mint green succulents for another, all lime succulents for another, etc... mixed with an assortment of lush greenery. The finished bouquets were so textural and full.
The bride's bouquet was a full, garden-style arrangement that included a half-dozen large succulents and several air plants. It was so pretty.
The groom wore a silver lapel cone stuffed with a single air plant and a few succulent leaves with greenery.
The groomsmen wore similar boutonnieres filled with succulents and greenery.
Grandmothers, great grandmothers, grandfathers & great grandfathers wore pin corsages and boutonnieres made of succulent trimmings and greenery. The wrist corsages were some of my absolute favorite!
Congratulations, Jessica & Doug! I am so thankful to have been part of your special day. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness and love!
