Bouquet Monday: Purple Cattlya Orchid Bouquet

Those darn cattlyas, with ruffled petals and delicate scent get me every time. I’m a sucker for the purple ones especially. Here, I clustered these gorgeous orchids with calla lilies, fuchsia roses, and these stunning carnations. I love the look of clustering the same flower types together to give the bouquet movement. ~Aileen

Hawaiian Ginger Bouquet

We just completed a gorgeous wedding at the Ritz Carlton Kapalua.  I am here in Hawaii surrounded with tantalizing scents of exotic hawaiian flowers.  The Aloha spirit is definitely  contagious.  Below, I collected a variety of my favorite blooms.  Ginger has so many good connotations: the vixen in Gilligan’s Island, my favorite flavor, and one […]

Bouquet Monday: Crystal Handle Bouquet

I love experimenting with different bouquet handle treatments. They’re just as fun and exciting as the flowers themselves! In this case, I embellished the ends with crystals from our new collection to make a sleek and chic little number. ~Aileen

Bouquet Monday: Exotic Orchid Bouquet

While snorkeling in Honolua Bay, I saw the most spectacular array of fish and coral. These spotted orchids reminded me of an especially adorable fish and I knew I had to do something with them. Dot com makara orchids (cute name, right?), james story, fragrant plumeria, and monkey tails come together to make a tropical […]

Bouquet Monday: Vibrant Hawaiian Bouquet

We just did a destination wedding at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea (more on that to come!) and are thrilled to be in paradise . Doesn’t this make you want to grab a mai tai and throw on a bikini?   A bright mix of local lilies, protea, orchids, and plumeria make for a […]

Bouquet Monday: Kelly’s Wedding Bouquet

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of doing the floral design for Susanne Duffy’s assistant, Kelly. She was a lover of ruffly flowers, billy balls, and silver cone. So I chose a combination of David Austin roses, parrot tulips, and cattlya orchids in a coral, yellow, and cream palette to create her dream […]

Bouquet Monday: Garden Bouquet

Comforting and intimate, this bouquet is enough to satisfy the rustic bride with a love for the garden. Delicate shades of peach, pink, and lavender are accompanied by wild hydrangea and scabiosa pods. A subtle gray satin ribbon was used to compliment this garden inspired bouquet. ~Aileen

Bouquet Monday: Vibrant Summer Bouquet

Summer weather is finally here, and when the temperatures rise, so do the need for vibrant colors. In this case, hot pink, green, and orange blooms make for a fun and flirty bouquet. The combination of tulips, orchids, roses, and spray roses give lots of texture and keep things interesting. ~Aileen

Bouquet Monday: Deep Red and Aqua Bouquet

I’m crazy about the look of contrasting colors. Here, a rich red bouquet gets an unexpected twist with the addition of an aqua blue ribbon. Black bacara roses, burgundy calla lilies, and deep red dahlias all contribute various lines and textures to make this monochromatic bouquet especially striking. ~Aileen

Bouquet Monday: Vintage Organic Bouquet

Here’s an earthy, feminine, and organic medley of white peonies, apricot garden roses, sandy colored imported roses, succulents, and scabiosa pods. A gathering of various textures, shapes, and colors, all wrapped up in a delicate vintage lace. I can see this as a perfect addition to that wedding with lots of charm and character. ~Aileen

Bouquet Monday: Colorful Fiesta Bouquet

Sexy heels and a margarita are all you’re going to need when you walk down the aisle. This fiery and vibrant bouquet is perfect for that colorful affair that’s looking for a little flavor. A mix of brightly colored roses, succulents, florescent kangaroo paws, and juicy berries come together to make a  bouquet with extra […]

Classic White Bridal Bouquet

Billy Idol was onto something.  A white wedding never goes out of style. Peonies, spray roses, gardenias, and cymbidium orchids all work together to make a classy bouquet fit for any soiree. And doesn’t a bit of bling just make anything better?  Here’s a classic white bridal bouquet that is timeles….. ~Aileen

Bouquet Monday: Clean line green and white bouquet

Pure and pristine is what comes to mind when I see this bouquet. You can’t go wrong with clean white calla lilies, green cymbidium orchids, and snowy roses. I especially love how it’s the perfect compliment to the bride’s gorgeous and simple dress. ~Aileen

Safari Bouquet

Grab the safari hat and khakis, this bouquet takes you through the plains and jungles of Africa. This was a compliment to the inspiration shoot featured in Southern Weddings. It’s packed with exotic visual delights like pin cushions, kangaroo paws, and succulent blossoms. The highlight for me are the eucalyptus pods, which gives it a fun tribal […]

Bouquet Monday: Purple Chartreuse Bouquet

Calla lilies have a way of stealing my heart. This time they’re combined with green cymbidium and Hawaiian phalaenopsis orchids in a chic an elegant bouquet. The chartreuse orchids make the eggplant calla lilies even more vibrant, while the white orchids give it balance. I can imagine this as a perfect compliment to a clean […]
