Pink, Orange and Green Flowers for a Destination Wedding in Jamaica

My client Michelle, contacted me almost a year ago and asked if I could do her flowers for her wedding that is going to be in Jamaica. It's a small destination wedding with their family and close friends. She found me via my other blog post of a past bride who also got married in Jamaica. Michelle fell in love with Elisa's bouquet as those were the exact colors of her wedding.
Michelle also realized that I do wedding invitations and so I ended up doing her invitations as well. I'm in the home stretch. I just have the boutonnieres, corsages and cake flowers to finish up, but the main pieces, 4 bouquets and 3 centerpieces are finally done.Michelle ran into a small snag with her reception flowers and asked if I could do the job. We decided to incorporate her bridal party flowers as centerpieces and then she asked me to make 3 more centerpieces that were lower that would compliment the bouquets. We agreed on frosted glass vases and wrapped them with her fuchsia pink ribbon that she asked me to use as it matches the pink that is used throughout her wedding, not to mention her shoes. :)
The color combination is vibrant and striking. I never get tired of this combination of lush greens, pinks and oranges. Definitely makes you ready for Spring and Summer!
