She didn't ask for much in regards to her flowers, just that she doesn't like pastel colors. Sounds fair, until I start looking around my farm and find that most spring flowers are pastel. The color pallet became white, spring green and orange. She also wanted to incorporate white dogwood blooms, since her parents used them in their spring wedding many years ago.
This is what I came up with for the centerpiece, all locally grown flowers. Flowers included are delphinium, double lilac, snowball viburnum, euphorbia, rubus, columbine and poppies. The poppies were the most stunning I have ever seen, just this vivid orange paper thin petals that seemed to glow.
A bit harder to visualize, this is the cake topper. When I delivered the flowers, the cake was not ready so could not place it on for the picture. Flowers used in this arrangement include snowball viburnum, dogwood, sweet pea, delphinium, euphorbia, african daisy and clematis. Just the perfect little bouquet of spring flowers.
Instead of bouquets, she asked for corsages. Above is a pinned corsage, including dogwood, sweet pea, lilac, snowball viburnum and euphorbia. Tied with an iridescent orange ribbon, it was quite beautiful.
Some of the ladies chose wrist corsages over pinned. Similar flower combination, just more lateral in shape. You can really see the dogwood bloom in this image. A great choice of flower to incorporate into a spring wedding.
I am anxious to hear how the wedding went and hope to see some pictures soon. Will post a few if I can, so stay tuned. This is a great example of how gorgeous a wedding can look using only locally grown flowers. They were all fresh, had great fragrance and were the most vivid colors. The photos really do not do them justice!
