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.
There’s nothing we love more than retro chic and this couple helped take it to the next level. We feel like we stepped on set of a fun movie set and these two are the stars! Ashlee Brooke Photography captured these two gallivanting around in their Volkswagen Bus adorned with gorgeous flowers by Jolley’s Gift and Floral! Feast your eyes on these lovely images!
This is just the dreamiest wedding we have going on here! We love seeing couple’s personalities really shine through in their weddings; whether that be through the dress, the location, the hair, the flowers, or the food choices, we love in the end how the wedding just fits the couple. This is so true for Monica and Biss, they are the loveliest pair and enjoy each moment of their wedding day. Alixann Loosle did an incredible job with this beautiful couple and their beautiful wedding. We are in love with their color scheme and every detail!
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!
Everybody loves love, and everybody loves puppies, so we think these two high school sweethearts had the right idea when they combined the two! We love these sweet engagements by Megan Robinson Photography photographed around town with their puppy. Jack actually proposed to Christina with the help of their Dalmatian Jewel. How adorable can you get?! They will cherish these pictures for years to come.
Spring is official, it really is here and all that belongs to mother nature around us becomes new again! This spring green bouquet was pulled from our recent magazine issue …. havent perused it yet? What are you waiting for?! ……. thanks to Studio Stems for this lovely piece of green and pink we cannot get over the charm of the green atriplex, queen annes lace, and a little bit of silver tree! They all compliment those giant peonies so well!
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!
We love this lovely spring wedding at Harmony Haven Ranch in Southern Utah; a great DIY wedding! M. Felt Photography did The bride, Chelsea, is a designer in Los Angeles so she did most of the details herself. The venue is a rental cabin in New Harmony and it is gorgeous! Since Chelsea and Anthony both live in LA, and their families live in different states, they wanted a location where everyone could stay together for the whole weekend. Chelsea grew up in St. George so it was perfect place!
We are excited to share this lovely Southwestern inspired wedding! Bre, our lovely bride grew up in Mexico and incorporated some of her heritage throughout their special day, from sombreros to boots. She and Jose dated for five years before sealing the deal, and we are so glad they did so we can enjoy these amazing shots by Lindsey Shaun! Their reception and dinner were held at the Linden Nursery, such a fitting venue for this happy couple; the amazing flowers were brought to life by Jesse Mickle.
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?!
