Rainy day bride looks beautiful in blush gown and fabulous bouquet!

We just love this image of a rainy day bride looking so beautiful and serene despite the weather! Studio 2053 Floral and Event Design created the fabulous masterpiece of roses, lemon leaves and lambs ear that adds the right amount of drama for the romantic blush gown by Stella York and a day in the soft rain at Lake Oak Meadows.  Also on point is the model’s feminine hair by Wonder Pin Studio and makeup by Chelsea Rose, and last but certainly not least- the lovely portrait styled by Katie Hammond and shot by photographer Courtney Lynn! Who minds the Spring rain if this much beauty comes from it!

The return of the wrist corsage by Native Poppy Florals

Suffice to say we’re big fans of bringing back classic ideas with a new feel (and we love seeing behind the scenes pics of any step by step process that creates this much beauty!) .Romantic, sweet, and very practical, the wrist corsage was hugely popular in the 1950’s. Native Poppy Florals brings a charming element of current styling to this classic way to wear your flowers that won’t have Grandma getting poked in the chest with a pin or smooshing florals with each hug. Love!!

White gets such support from a little bit of green in this classic bouquet - but don’t forget your family with matching corsages, boutonnieres, and of course, flower doggy collar!  Photo by Anika London

White on white on white is a bold move, yet going monochromatic for the Bride makes for timeless photos.  

Don’t forget to embellish the stems of your bouquet with meaningful pieces like a brooch or pin from your grandmother. As a bride you’ll be  connecting with these as you walk down the aisle.  

Dawn Stone of Embellishmint Floral & Event Design Studio makes the coolest boutonnières ever!

Dawn Stone is a very talented floral artist. Take the (to the untrained eye) simpie boutonnière- the man’s version of corsage. First Dawn takes the tools of the trade that anyone can use...ribbon, floral tape, innocent look and seemingly unrelated greens and florals....but never underestimate a true artist’s eye for color, proportion, design, balance, and that certain something! 

Then the magic begins....a little trimming, a little taping.....

And voila! A gorgeous boutonnière fit for any well-appointed groom’s lapel!  We never would’ve thought to add a little bit of succulent to this gorgeous tuberose and silver greenery! Amazing!
