Congratulations Brandy & Mike

This summer I was fortunate to have the opportunity to design floral arrangements for Brandy and Mike as they planned their September wedding by the seashore. While she was searching for bouquets and boutonnieres, Brandy came across my new Seaside Bouquet and Boutonniere Collection. The sea glass accents and dried grasses used in this collection were two key elements the couple hoped to incorporate into their beach-themed event.

Our wonderful collaboration began when Brandy contacted me to request a complete wedding package. She shared ideas that would help me personalize the arrangements -- making them a perfect fit for the big day. The original blush pink flowers were omitted to stay within a refreshingly soft color palette of pale blue, grey, ivory, light green, and tan. Since driftwood would also be a component in the wedding decor, Brandy asked if I could work some driftwood pieces into the design. It was such a fantastic addition and we were both pretty excited about the results!

Last week, I was thrilled to receive a sweet note from Brandy & Mike that included photos from their beautiful wedding in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Thanks to their talented photographer, Louis Schroder,
I am also able to share them with you.

Brandy and Mike 

The Beautiful Bride: Brandy's attention to detail was impeccable. The stem wrap on her bouquet is made with lace from her mother's wedding gown. She also attached a small flower earring to the bouquet as a memento of her grandmother. It was such a touching sentiment! 

The Wedding Party: I love with the subtle color variations of the bridesmaid dresses against the grey suits!

The Bouquets: A suite of blue grey delphinium blossoms, ivory hydrangea, dried lagarus grass, and spike fern accented with hand-wired sea glass and driftwood.

 The Boutonnieres: Blue grey delphinium and ivory hydrangea blossoms with dried lagarus grass, spike fern, and sea glass, wrapped with satin and raffia.

A Family Photo: Brandy & Mike's pup was an adorable addition to the wedding party as the ring bearer. I've been told that Oakley was on his best behavior that day! He looked so handsome in his tie too!

Congratulations Brandy and Mike! I'm incredibly thankful to have worked with you.
Wishing you much happiness and love!
