Martina & Ryan

Martina and Ryan were wed on October 18Th. Fall was in the air and the colors of the day were Red, Orange & Chocolate. Marina wanted a lot of texture in her bouquet. I used mini calla, roses, hypericum berries, pin-cushion protea, hanging amaranthus & some copper wire. To add more copper, I sprayed yarrow with a copper paint made for flowers. Martina had seen a bouquet (Emily's) I made last year, and wanted something similar, but different. Martina's bouquet is on the top, and Emily's bouquet is on the bottom. Emily's bouquet is made of pink mink protea, roses, cymbidium orchids, mini calla, green amaranthus & curly willow. Both of these brides knew what colors they wanted, and that they wanted lots of texture, but they left it up to me to decide what flowers to use. It makes it fun for me to come up with new combinations of flowers. Thanks ladies for letting me be creative.

I am very excited to see the picture that k Gallery took, and will share them with you. k Gallery also photographed Emily's wedding, and A'vie was her planner as well.

It took one look at my bouquet to know that I will never work with anyone other that Betsy for flowers!! During our first meeting, I was completely unhelpful….knowing very little about particular flowers, but a lot about the colors I like and the fact that I wanted it to stand out in a crowd, be a little different than the average bouquet. She nailed it. Everyone thought I was a little nuts when I saw the bouquet (and the rest of the flowers) an literally teared up!! She beyond nailed it. My father, who like the stereotypical man, really didn’t “get” the hype surrounding flowers in general actually pulled me aside during the reception to say “These flowers are freaking incredible!”. And to top it all off, she is awesome and so much fun to work with!! Betsy, thank you, thank you, thank you! We can’t wait to work with you again ☺

I just love your bouquets. Betsy can always blow your mind and come up with something totally wild and out there if you just let her.
