fIvE... The Artichoke Bouquet
So this wasn't for a "real" wedding- I made it because I was having a hard time selling brides on having vegetables in their bouquets (still waiting ladies...). I really love it. The colours are muted, but your eyes bounce from smooth, to rough, to fluffy, to... berries.
To see the "before" pics you can visit the original post for this bouquet (also was my very first post!).
past blog posting). She owns Heaven Stitch & Design down the street and she had great creative touches throughout her day. With this bouquet it's pretty obvious that the colour isn't what grabs you, more so the different textures tucked in tightly together. You may be thinking about petting the screen right now- don't - it doesn't work.
tHReE... Yellow/Green Ryckman Bouquet
Again, this wasn't a real wedding. I made this for a photo shoot with Ryckman Photography. Berries, Craspedia, Succulents and swooping Lily Grass. I really love this one, a lot. Yep, that's all I've got for this one : )
Leah was another Fernie bride with great ideas. She came to the consult with a picture of a cotton bouquet and asked if I could get those in. Yep! Then I crossed my fingers and asked "how do you feel about feathers?" (she felt good about them) and this beaut was born! Mixing Cotton branches, carnations, poppy pods, feathers, and lambs ear- so great!

oNE ... Kim
Kim was yet another amazing local bride that was willing to try something different. I remember being pretty excited (but professional- I kept my cool) when she agreed to having succulents in her bouquet! Eryngium, crespedia, succulents, curly willow and hydrangea. I added a pic of the button hole too, just because it's so great!
