Flower Friday: A Blooms & Blossoms Bouquet

03 27 2015


It’s the last Friday of the month and we are feeling good here at UBB! Sending you off for a spectacular spring weekend with this gorgeous bouquet from one of our preferred florists Kelli with Blooms & Blossoms and her thoughts on the bridal bouquet! Thanks to Lindsey Orton Photography.


Bridal bouquets are my absolute favorite floral piece to create so when I was presented with the opportunity to design an arrangement for Utah Bride Blog I naturally chose to design a bouquet.

In my opinion I think the bouquet is the most important design element of the entire wedding. It’s a beautiful statement piece to compliment the bride and the dress. And, actually, an entire wedding can be designed around the bride’s bouquet.

I always start my consultations discussing the wedding bouquet. The flowers, style and feel of the bouquet are all important factors when coming up with a design. There are many things to consider when choosing flowers. Do you want large, lush blooms, blooms with a high petal count? Do you want a lot of texture or do you want something sweet and simple? It’s also important to keep your wedding dress in mind. You want your flowers to compliment your dress, not compete with it.

Whether your budget for flowers is big or small I always recommend not skimping on the bouquet. Every guest will see you with your bouquet. It will appear in several if not most of your wedding photos that you will look back on for years to come.

When you meet with your floral designer bring ideas to help them see your vision and then let them use their expertise and experience in helping you find the perfect blooms.

Vintage Wedding {Jocelyn + Josiah}

03 24 2015

We absolutely adore this vintage wedding! Tavis Johnson did a wonderful job capturing this sweet couple’s special day. All of the details come from Etsy shops, how great is that?! Because of that, every detail is so unique and original. The bride’s crown & florals come from Bohemian Bouquets, her wedding dress from Muse Clothing, and the Venue was found on Airbnb. Everything about this wedding is so perfect!

Spring Dream Inspiration Shoot

03 19 2015

We fell in love with these images when they came into our inbox! The beautiful photography by Evelyn Eslava and the wonderful concept created by Flourish put together just made magic! We wanted to share the concept behind the shoot shared with us by Kaylee Young of Flourish!
“As I began thinking, I loved the idea of a dream, and what it would feel like to get lost inside of a daydream. I used that as my inspiration. There is a very soft and feminine feel to this shoot, and it focuses on the pretty bridal details such as the jewelry and flowers. It also portrays the delicate bride and the intimate moments of her getting ready for her big day. I think this shoot brings light and feeling into some of those quiet moments that aren’t always captured.”
We love the soft femininity of this shoot. We love embracing the girly details!

Simple Engagements {Josh & Hannah}

03 16 2015

We loved the classic achromatic look of these engagements photographed by Stephanie Sunderland Photography. We say it a lot but we love the way simplicity can really  make an engagement session stand out. Lots of couples try to use a lot of props or elaborate ideas for their engagements. Sometimes, the key is keeping it simple. How cute are these two and their outfits too?!
