A Victorian fall wedding
Here's the wedding gown for this weekend's wedding gig. Beth The bride and groom wanted a Victorian feel to the flowers, and this is what I designed for them. Beautiful Casa Blanca lilies, hypericum beries, rannunculas, dusty miller, and black ostrich feathers.
Could this groom be any happier? What a great smile.
And the hollywood glamourous bride. Check out those ruby red lips.
Here the gorgeous cake with Boccara roses and rannunculus, flanked by the toss bouquet. My daughter helped deliver this wedding and she did a wonderful job flowering the cake.
The groom's boutonniere constructed of wine callas, berries, and dusty miller in a calla lilly bout holder. These are magnetized and hold on tight to lapels right through the "I now pronounce you man and wife" kiss.
One of my favorite parts of this wedding was suggesting an "In Memorium" boutonniere for the bride's deceased father. The bride set up a podium next to the head table with this beautiful family photo. The boutonniere sat solemnly honoring her father throughout the reception.

Congratulations Josh and Cayla! May God bless your marriage, family and home for many years.
