Chapel Designers Bouquet Menagerie

Monday, April 29th, 2013

My Chapel Designer friends and I decided to do a little progressive blog post were you can find all of our lovely bouquets, and we have so many lovely bouquets to choose from.  This past weekend one of our designers created a stunning peonies bouquet, it was one of my favorites. But as much as I love peonies, I love anemones a lot more. Anemones, anything purple and of course anything with peonies. Here is a few of my favorites bouquets to date.

These next three bouquets were created by Victoria Clausen from Romance of Flowers I absolutely love the classic glamelia bouquet below. It’s stunning.

Corals and Spring Flowers ~ A Photo Shoot for La Belle Fleur Events

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

When the lovely Ashley Le Fleur asked if we would like to be part of a photo shoot for her we jumped at the chance. Anything coral and gold is hot right now… so how could I pass up on the opportunity. Her timing was absolutely perfect since I was planning my trip to NYC and I knew I could get some lovely things at the NYC Floral Market and bring it back with me. Yes, I brought these flowers back with me on the plane! It was a little bit of a hassle and totally worth it. Would I do it again?…. take a look at these beauties and the answer is heck, yeah!  To round out all the amazing vendors that Ashley brought together for the shoot is Ashley Biess who I have to say is an amazing photographer and was kind enough to share these images.
