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………
I LOVE photo shoots! First of all they are so much fun! There is no pressure of designing for someone’s most important day and I can be as creative as I want to be. I can design trendy styles or styles that I’ve always wanted to design but haven’t got the chance to. It also gives me a chance to collaborate with so many different vendors : vendors I love to work with or vendors that I haven’t worked with before. This shoot at Chamard Vineyard in Clinton, CT was great because I have never been to this venue before and I was able to work 2 wonderful people, Christine from Piece of Cake Events and Kiva from Annandale Photography.
If you’re thinking of having an event at Chamard Vineyards and want Candi’s Floral Creations to be your florist, then you may have to fight for us! They have an on sight coordinator that is wonderful, but only uses her “click” of vendors, however, you can bring in any vendor you choose.
I had floral balls and feathers on the brain! We designed 2 tables, each having their own wedding style.
The Elegant Red, Black and White Table…..
…and the Natural Purple and Green Table….
..and the Vineyard….
