Simply Beautiful

Most of the arrangements I create have alot of flowers and other keepsakes included but this one was more simple. The hydrangeas were in pretty bad shape when they came to me having been left out of water for quite some time so I only preserved the roses. I really love how it turned out and the simplicity of it. The bride also wanted to include the photo charm of her grandmother that was in her bouquet on her wedding day, so that makes it even more special. This bouquet was made by Tommy’s Garden in Richmond, VA.

Pretty in Pink

I couldn’t believe this bouquet was a week old when it came to me. The flowers were in such good condition and that rarely happens! When the bride brought me her invitation after her bouquet had preserved I was excited to see that there were matching pink roses on it! It turned out really cute and I love the combination of a country style bouquet with the rustic brown frame. I know she is going to cherish this arrangement forever!

Bouquet was created by Coleman Brothers Flowers.

Trying something new

This is my first creation that includes the bouquet’s stems! When the bride, Sara contacted me and wanted me to preserve her bouquet she told me she wanted her arrangement to look exactly like her bouquet the day of her wedding. As if you took her bouquet and stuck it in a shadow box as is. I was hesitant to do this because I wasn’t sure how the stems would turn our or preserve and with my method of preservation I have to take the bouquet completely apart.  Needless to say, I was up for the challenge! I love trying something new and expanding into different possibilities. I couldn’t be happier with how Sara’s bouquet turned out and she loved it too! It is so rewarding that I could give her exactly what she wanted and I’m excited to be able to create pieces like this now for more brides to come!
