Best of the Best of 2014: Bouquets

Hey everyone!!

We're ringing in the New Year and reflecting on the beauty we were a part of during 2014. What a blessing to be able to work with such amazing, creative, and kind clients! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Now for our best of the best! We'll begin today with my favorite bouquets in no particular order:

1. Rachel & Blake - June 2014 - Textural, southern bouquets by Jules Design. These beauties consist of Peonies, Garden Roses, Dahlias, Queen Anne's Lace, Viburnum, and more. These bouquets couldn't be more perfect with the bridesmaids gowns from Two Birds Bridesmaids (available locally at Tesori Bridal & Formal in Fayetteville)

2. Rachel & Graham - May 2014 - Loosely gathered bridesmaid bouquets by Flora were each different and were the perfect fit for this Horton Farms barn wedding. The ivory and gold tones beautifully complimented the varying shades of blue worn by the bridesmaids. These bouquets consisted of roses, peonies, sweet peas, and greenery.

3. Becca & Adam - March 2014 - This bouquet by Hudson Floral is the most structured on our list, but it still has some personality! I love the use of the more modern orchid and the modified round shape. Alex, the fabulous floral designer, created gorgeous texture using orchids, roses, tulips, sweet peas, ranunculus, hyacinth, garden roses, and greenery.

4. Kirsten & Jordan - August 2014 - This list wouldn't be complete without the work of art that was Kirsten's bouquet. This cascading masterpiece was created by Pigmint using garden roses, peonies, ranunculus, dahlias, and loads of greenery. The lovely bridesmaid bouquets used the same blooms but in a more traditional, round shape. The extra long trailing ribbons accenting the bridesmaid bouquets were a beautiful compliment to the shape of the bridal bouquet.
