Every girl dreams of her wedding day. I mean, I’m sure every guy does too but let’s be real here. That’s why when Minah approached me to do her flowers I was beyond honoured but also a little nervous. She entrusted total creative freedom to me. Although I absolutely enjoy having complete creative reign, remember you don’t have any guidelines so you really have to have a good sense about everything and put it all together. Well, actually she did have one and only one guideline: pink. You can see for yourself how it turned out : )
Being a florist doesn’t mean just making beautiful centerpieces and bouquets, you have to have the attitude and eye for everything surrounding the wedding – the venue, the couple, the colours, the personalities. That’s why when both Minah and I saw the final product, we fell in love with everything. I was very pleased with my work – everything came together in utter perfection.So here’s a very general picture of what I gathered to create my flowers. Personality: fun, down to earth, loves to have a good time. Style: rustic, classic, pretty. Venue: rustic, natural. I know those words are very simple but that’s pretty much all I need to get the right feel and then the ideas and designs start blossoming from there. As you can see, we kept the centerpieces classic and romantic just like the venue, Berkeley Fieldhouse. We also had fun with the table garland runner, which was actually a last-minute change after Minah was inspired by a previous wedding I had done using a similar-style table garland. And lastly, the bouquet was kept just as she asked – pretty and all shades of pink. My brides always gravitate and point out her bouquets and centerpieces in my lookbook, which makes me very happy as Minah and I have been long-time friends from church. Hope you enjoy these photos, which were beautifully captured by Lisa Bang.
And remember, all our delight is in You.
