Right now, I am craving to create. And the first item that I’m really yearning to pour myself into is a big textural mound of blossoms in white on white on white. I was browsing through my Facebook albums and figured, why not share some of my most prized possesions: pictures of my floral work.
If you’ve been a reader for any amount of time, I’d figure you could pin point me as a personal person. I take very few clients in the way of florals because of how seriously I take the job. My bouquets are PERSONAL to me. An outpouring of my heart and love into the hands of those I hold dear to me: clients. I’m always beyond honored to see their pretty posies in picture form. Typically I make bridal bouquets about the size of one’s head… doubled. Haha! They’re definitely two-handers, full of life and love, and nearly all of them have one of my signature “hearts” somewhere on them- they also are almost always heavily detailed on the wrap. Here’s two of my favorites, clad in ALL WHITE!
From Ginger + Kris’ June 2008 Private Residence Wedding [which was one of my FIRST weddings that I took on floral duties for]:
It’s been a while, but I can spot peonies, vendelah roses, and alstromeria in this bouquet for sure! I love the way the alstromeria, which is typically considered a cheaper “filler” flower, has leaves that compliment the garden-feel of the bouquet. Right on target.
Ginger’s colors were eclectic and amazing! Baby blue and baby pink, paired with white and grey. The day totally rocked and so did her bridal party- wearing Betsey Johnson bridesmaid dresses!

Thanks to Wayne Toshikazu for the pretty pretties above. He totally ROCKED this wedding and it was one of his first “official” gigs. For me, it was love at first image. I’ve been a Wayne fan, solid, ever since! Moving on…
From Cynthia + Ron’s May 2009 Craven’s Estate Wedding in Pasadena:
Quick rundown [from what I can remember and see from the pics]: ranunculus, peonies, astilbe, parrot tulips [white/green accent], scabiosa, and I believe some creamy vendela spray roses!
Her colors were black, white, and emerald green and we brought in a deep warm red to accent with the flowers [just for bridesmaid bouquets]. As a nod to the red, I added tiny red pins to affix the heart shaped buttons on herlace bouquet wrap.
UGH I love this bouquet! It’s possibly my favorite thing ever. I want to hug it. Continually. Hold on and never let go. All the above photos are courtesy of In The Now Weddings and Events! Now, for some real good stuff from the real good snapper, Sarah K. Chen:
And, with the deep red bouquets that I mentioned above:
Not sure about you, but right now I’m feeling like a good bouquet is like a good dessert- and I am FULL UP. Yum yum yum. I know that the idea of a classic white bridal bouquet is not new to this industry, but pairing that with an intricate bouquet wrap or your own unique wedding style will be what sends YOUR wedding over the edge! So… who’s holding white on their big day? And what are you doing to bring the YOU to your accessories?
Stay inspired as much for your love as you are for your wedding- it’s the only way to ensure love will survive!!
