Happy Flower Feature Friday! We are really finishing this week off right with this amazingly gorgeous flower feature brought to you by the lovely Blossom Sweet and equally incredible photography by Miesh Photography! We are obsessed with everything about this wedding from the blow-your-mind bouquet and perfectly crafted boutonniere to the stunning photography!

“We are thrilled to have this wedding featured here on Utah Bride Blog today.  Riley and Sunny were married in the Oquirrh Mountain Temple back in June, and we adored their bridal party floral concept.  Mixtures of soft, muted summery tones really brought home the look of vintage garden elegance which Riley was going for.  In fact, Riley was so set on having a casual yet beautiful feel to her big day, that instead of referring to her reception at Cactus and Tropical as ‘The Reception,’ she affectionately called it her ‘Garden Soiree.’ How cute is that?

The bride’s gorgeous bouquet was a showstopper in the truest sense of the word and exuded femininity in every possible way.  The bouquet was made up of: giant garden peonies, Juliette garden roses, craspedia, three varieties of stock (peach, buttercream, and white), spray roses, green lizard, tuberose, succulents, ranunculus, and silver dollar eucalyptus.  Finally, the bouquet was finished with a simple twine wrap to match the rest of the bridal party.

The boutonnieres were really some of our favorites we’ve ever created here at Blossom Sweet.  The bride provided us with lots of fantastic feathers to work with, and from there we added craspedia and finished the simple yet sophisticated look with a clean twine wrap.

Finally, the bridesmaids bouquets were all sorts of lovely.  To mirror the fact that each bridesmaids dress was a little different than the next, we opted for mono-botanical bouquets, meaning that there was one type of flower per bouquet.  The bouquets were made up of either peonies; spray roses; or one shade each of peach, white, or buttercream stock.  All of the bouquets were completed with silver dollar eucalyptus, craspedia, and a simple twine wrap to really tie the whole look together.

Special thanks to Miesh Photography for flawlessly capturing our work as well as sharing these lovely photographs with us.  Brides-to-be, be sure to check out the Miesh Photography website!”
