This past weekend I had the opportunity to make floral arrangements and help decorate for one of the most precious wedding I have ever seen. The couple was so sweet and had an incredibly special day. I learned so much and had a blast making arrangements, bouquets, and boutonnière’s.
The couple had themed their wedding with lots of bright spring colors and lively plants. They also choose to a unique flare to add to their flowers with feather accents and old costume broaches for added for sparkle. I don’t know where she got all her ideas but they were absolutely incredible.
The bride’s bouquet was unlike anything I have ever seen. It was so much fun assisting my boss create it for her. She used pink peonies and added white feathers and a broach to it. It was the most unique and beautiful bouquet I have ever seen. Her husband’s boutonnière was also accented with a white feather. The subtitle beauty of the feather and broach added so much elegance and glamour.
I created what I believe is my best work yet. I worked on two of the center pieces, one of them was pink and the other one was yellow. The bride gave me direction of what she wanted but gave me the freedom of creativity. She wanted each centerpiece to be special and unique. I absolutely love my two centerpieces and so did she. I actually surprised myself with how great they turned out. It was fun making such a bright loud arrangement. It wasn’t hard to smile the entire time creating it because the bright flowers radiated happiness; good pick on the bride and grooms part. 🙂
I really enjoy working alongside my boss at this wedding. She continues to teach me so much every time we begin a project. She was very pleased with my work at the wedding and invited me to do a few events with her in the upcoming months. Of course I said yes, after this wedding I think I prefer events over daily arrangements. I enjoy working with someone to create their floral dreams a reality. There was something about making wedding arrangements that brings romantic emotions. I left feeling like it was my wedding night again.
It has only been a few months since I began creating floral arrangements but I have grown so much as a floral designer. I hope to continue learning and getting better. I really think I found my passion.
Until next time,
