Grooms bout: Mini calla lily

The leaves on the eucalyptus have a silvery tone to it, a minute detail , to incorporate the theme of purple and silver.

Bridal bouquet of callas, cymbidium orchids, roses, and hydrangeas wrapped in purple ti leaves with pink/reddish edge (it looks like ribbon!). Also added some beading for additional embellishment. I should have told the bride to hold it at an angle. From this angle, the roses are hidden unfortunately.

No flower pew markers this time. The church was just finished with renovations and without pews, we decided to keep it simple. This is an arrangement at the end of the aisle.

Thanks Terri. I've had only 2 weddings this year. During each wedding, I swear it will be my last. It is soooo much work. But after I'm done and have had some rest, then I can't wait to do the next! It's like delivering a baby! You forget how painful it was. . .LOL

Gorgeous, Karma! Most designers I've run across over the years don't have your talent- you have a great eye for texture and color :-) Did you get your orchids from Orchids Direct?

Thank you Neil! Not so much talent, just a lot of passion. No, I stuck with wesflora for the orchids. I didn't order that much to go with orchids direct. Figured shipping would cost a lot? Although I will have to try them next. The green cymbidiums wesflora sent was only so-so. The nora pink arandas were breathtakingly beautiful though! I should have taken a picture pre-arranged, but you know how that goes. Too busy to take pics before and too tired to take pics after. I made some gift boxes out of green and purple poms that didn't even make it into the photos. After everything is done, I'm just like "whatever". The passion wears out, especially during clean-up, LOL.

Blossom, to hyperlink you just have to cut and paste the url (it starts with http://www. something at the top).

Oh yes, I forgot Wesflora was carrying a wide variety of orchids. I love those Arandas! The airy, brick red ones are so lovely, have you used those?
