Lisianthus, White Hydrangea and Mums for one summer Bride.

               A Daisy Wedding                           

Seven little Flower Girls with their Daisy Bouquets

Wheat Grass in Willow boxes for the centerpiece/table numbers on Citron table runners from

    Daisies- I'm not sure why, aren't so popular any more. Seemed like everyone I know that was married in the 70's had Daisies. Lots of brides have them on their list of  'flowers I don't like'.  What's not to like??
"He loves me, he loves me not"...Didn't you play that game with Daisies when you were little to find out if the  boy you like; likes you?  If it turns out he loves you not, you just get another one and start over till you end up with 'he loves me!'  One bride used Daisies as her theme flower everywhere, and printed on all her favors and stationary.  '....he loves me, he loves me not, he loves me!...we tied the knot!'

  Last week's bride must love Daisies, because that's the only flower she used in the entire wedding.
Down the aisle, for her Bridal bouquet and for her 7 little Flower Girls! How perfectly sweet.

          All trends go in cycles, maybe the Daisies are starting to make their comeback?................

Thank you Jonnaysa Kirkham of Planned Perfection for sharing these images.  KMPhotography  and Bella Manse  were also on the team.  Venue: Cameron Estate

Summer Evaporates........

Another summer has evaporated before my eyes and we're diving into fall weddings with deep, rich jeweltones.
Jessie loves taking close-ups of individual flowers, and I love them too.  It's as if you can see the petals unfolding in slow motion.  This is the bud of a burgundy Dahlia amid purple Stock, white Hydrangeas & red Dahlias
The velvety texture of Black Bacarra  Roses with Green Hydrangea, Red Charlene Roses,  hot pink Mini Carnations, and Buffalo Orange Mokara Orchids in the centerpieces on beautiful textured organza linens from Special Occasions, of course.
Thank you Tennison Photography for the above 2 images.
Bridesmaids wore a soft brown and carried bouquets of Coffee Break Roses, red Dahlias and Seeded Eucalyptus.
The Bride's bouquet with Swartzwalder and red Mini Callas with a collar of burgundy Dahlias & Lily Grass.
Reception was at Cork Factory.  More images to follow.

Best of everything to Laura and Marco & Ashleigh and Brian
