I know, I know…it’s January! But, I have a ton of July brides contacting me right now and I’ve been thinking about this Colorful ~ Shoreline ~ Bohemian wedding at Madison Beach Hotel. (where I am a preferred florist)
Megan and Mike were not only one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever worked with, they were the LUCKIEST! I know what you’re thinking, because they got to work with me, right? HAHA….NOPE! It was because there was a crazy storm the night the Madison CT fireworks were scheduled for and had gotten rescheduled…TWICE…for July 6th…Megan and Mike’s wedding night!!!! Talk about the best seat in the house as the fireworks let off from a barge in Long Island Sound right outside the Hotel.
I was recently looking through my photos and saw these bouquets…as you’ll see, it was very hard not to see them…they are SO bright and summery!
So I thought I would blog about them in hopes that summer would finally get here!
Lauren and Matt were the sweetest couple to work with and I loved that they were a bit daring! Since they were having a nautical/seashore wedding in Mystic, we started with a more traditional seashore theme…a little safe… using blues, whites, greens, etc Don’t get me wrong, that’s beautiful for a waterside wedding, but when your Bridesmaids dresses are blue and you’re wedding is in the summer…there are SO many color stories you could choose. Lauren, hesitantly, showed me a photo of a VERY bright and colorful bouquet……I fell in love….not only with the color story, but with her as well! I really love it when a bride can be a bit daring and has the guts to really show their personality on the biggest day of their life!
Needless to say, we went with COLOR and the results were fabulous! The couple decided to take a lot of the design on themselves by having lanterns as centerpieces, hanging mason jars with candles enclosed…everything came together perfectly for a Latitude 41 wedding in Mystic! I am very impressed with her DIY skills…have to show them off!
It was also wonderful to work with Coastal Gourmet Catering, Meg of Creative Image Collections (her photos are stunning) and of course their wedding planner Christine of Piece of Cake Event Planning(we love to work together and you’ll see more of our collaborations soon).
Let the prettiness begin………
