Yesterday I wrote a KILLER post over at Elizabeth Anne Designs’ Blog [which I'm back in the habit of doing, and deserves a big HOLLA!]- and that post is all dedicated to fabulous and real In The Now clients from 2009 that made the choice to hold bold, beautiful colored bridal bouquets! One wedding that I didn’t feature on the post over at EAD was a few shots of Shannon and Scott’s August nuptials- so BONUS to my blog readers because here they are for ya!

Shan and Scott opted to use Shannon’s favorite flower as a theme of their big day [I mean, seriously, the girl has a sunflower tattooed on her foot!!]. Her bridesmaids [and yes, there were 10+ bridesmaids] held small clutches of standard sunflowers and hypernicum berries, while her bouquet varied slightly as she held double-petaled sunflowers [which gave them a ruffled texture] and white snow berries to give a certain bridal distinction to her bouquet! All flowers were thrown together by In The Now Weddings and hand-picked, designed and assembled by Shannon and I personally!! It pays to assist in the awesomeness that IS southern California’s favorite event design team! Haha!! Some pictures for you from the talents of Bryan Sheffield:

Sunflower Bridal Bouquet

Shannon’s bouquet was tied in a fabulously gorgeous bright teal ribbon with gold wire accent [that I literally molded into the cutest mini-bow EVER].

Sunflower Bouquets

Here you can see more the contract of the girls’ bouquets [but don't get too distracted by Shannon WORKING IT for the camera!]. The hypernicum berries were the perfect accent to their coral colored dresses. The official pallete for the wedding was brown and coral/red, but Shannon popped it out by adding the teal blue along with the fresh yellow of the sunflowers to bring a real rustic home-spun feel to their wedding. Exactly everything she wanted and it made me proud and happy to see it all happen!

Click on over to the feature on EAD to read more and see many, many more pictures! News flash readsies [that's you]: most of the images over there have yet to be blogged over here! So YAY for newness! And as always, even more YAY for comments!!

Hope your day is colorful! Don’t hesitate to buy someone in your life flowers this week. Even if it’s just a single stem. They truly are a natural life-brightener!!
