This wedding was a small elegant family event held last weekend – and the bride is a leader and visionary in the arts in Boston – so we really wanted to something unbelievably special for her! Going to the flower market to buy flowers for her wedding, vendors saw the incredible things we had pulled for her, and one even said, ‘these are flowers for star!’ We agreed because they were completely right!

About the Design – We wanted to give this bride something unique, slightly ‘sculptural,’ and mesmerizing. She loves orchids and unique floral materials and really gave us carte blanche to run with her adjectives of ‘unruly,’ ‘feathery,’ and ‘billowing.’ It’s so fantastic when you have a client like this who sort of gives themselves over to the experience, Apryl and I can run with it and do something really special.

About the Flowers – We used stems of funky ‘speckled’ white and magenta phalenopsis orchids, pale yellow, and iridescent pink/lavender phalenopsis orchids, peach and green parrot tulips, mini papyrus stems, and maidenhair ferns.

Because this bride also loves unique fabrics and textures, we added some unique elements to the handle of her bouquet – a midori silk ribbon I call ‘storm’ and an embroidered ribbon with Swarovski crystal.
