Bridal Bouquet Gift for My Cousin's Daughter

My cousin's daughter is getting married in a couple of weeks. Danielle asked me if I would be willing to make her bouquet when she gets married and I decided to gift her with it as our wedding present to her and her fiance! Her favorite color is yellow and she's pairing it with grey and vintage country accents. 
Her bridesmaids are each going to have a fresh flower bouquet of all one type of flower, such as a bouquet of all gerberas, all roses, etc. So Danielle asked me if I could incorporate the flowers from their bouquets into hers. So her bouquet is comprised of cabbage roses, gerbera daisies, lisianthus, and hydrangeas. She wanted to incorporate orchids as it's her favorite flower and the flower Dominic gave to her on their first date. 
 So... here's how her bouquet turned out. We added lily of the valley since it would have taken me too long to make baby's breath. I felt it was a nice trade off that adds little blossoms and some lovely movement to the bouquet. Her stems are finished with burlap and lace. 

Congratulations and Best Wishes to Danielle and Dominic. It's been so wonderful seeing your love grow through the years! Many years of wedded bliss to the both of you!  Hopefully I'll be able to snap some photos and share them in a couple of weeks.

Custom Ring Pillow Box for a Destination Wedding

I know it has been a long time since I've blogged. It's been a crazy start to the summer with end of year parties and activities for my son at school and contending with my summer wedding orders. I had to just share these images of a custom ring pillow box I made for my client. It turned out super cute.
 Cami's request was for my turtles as bride & groom turtles, but the groom to have a sailor's hat as her fiance is in the Navy. She also asked for her bouquet to be replicated, but because of how SMALL the bouquet is I could only create the ranunculus, grasses and roses.
They turned out so adorable that I think I just might be offering these in the near future. :)

Also, as part of Cami's order she requested her bridal bouquet, matching hair flower and favors.
