Orange and Grey Color Combination - Favors and Boutonnieres

My client Erica, asked me once she saw my work if I'd be willing to do her wedding favors. She was having a ceramic tile made for her wedding favors and she wanted a gift box for her wedding guests. So she decided upon the hibiscus and peony flowers since she wanted the graduated sunset orange hue to her flowers. Her colors are sunset orange and grey. We had a slight miscommunication so her favor colors ended up being all shades of orange, but they still came out very beautiful.
She asked me to create the boutonnieres for her groom and groomsmen. She chose a white cymbidium orchid with hints of orange at the tips of the petals with a sunset orange throat. We paired it with coral orange roses and grass fillers. It was finished off with grey ribbon. The groomsmen had these beautiful, petite orange orchids that really have the sunset orange appeal. Love how these orchids turned out for sure. Again to make sure there was continuity, we used the same roses as was used in the groom's boutonniere.Erica and her fiance are getting married in Mexico so these colors are absolutely perfect for their locale! Best wishes Erica and Rohan! Hope you'll share photos upon your return!
