Wedding Profile: Refined Roadside Wedding Flowers


POSTED IN: Wedding Profile

I absolutely loved Colleen’s description of the look she was going for with her wedding flowers: refined roadside.  Love, love, loved it.  AKA: English garden gone wild.  Thank you to Dawn E. Roscoe Photography for the beautiful photos!

The bridal bouquet featured some of my very favorite blooms of spring.  Flowering dogwood in a bridal bouquet? Yes, please!  Also, Juliet garden roses, peonies, stock, dusty miller, and lily of the valley.  Colleen loved lily of the valley, and I was so excited when the season cooperated and I was able to snag locally grown lily of the valley for her bouquet and Onur’s boutonniere.  The season for it is so very brief, but we got it!

The bridesmaids’ bouquets had a bit more color to them, and they contained spray roses, Juliet garden roses, peonies, dahlias, scabiosa, and stock.  I love the color scheme, or lack thereof.

The centerpieces were low and sprawling displays in recycled glass containers.

Congratulations to Collen and Onur!  For more photos of the wedding, visit the post on Dawn E. Roscoe’s blog.

    Very pretty bouquets! I love the use of different kinds of flowers in these bouquets, something other then just the usual roses, etc.

    I was wondering where you got the patches for the day of the dead boutineers? Thanks
