It’s been a minute since I’ve shared my recent work. It’s been such a busy 2018 so far and I can’t believe it’s already half way over! I am so happy to share Corey and Monique’s wedding that was held in the heart of downtown at the Central Library. What I love about this space is all the modern and clean lines. We played off the building structure and masculine texture to soften it with the florals.
The lines in the big windows of the rooftop of the library inspired this geometric hexagon arch. We wanted a pop of metallic that went with the brushed gold to balance the harsh steel of the space. The brushed gold immediately brought a softness to the space.
And if you know my work, you know that I’m all about repurposing ceremony pieces in some way for the sweetheart area. The hexagon arch couldn’t have been more perfect as a sweetheart backdrop for Corey and Monique!
Monique’s bouquet is one of my favorites! The anemones and butterfly Japanese ranunculus was extra good this season! The dark center of the anemone is always an eye catcher and the whispy and delicate butterfly ranunculus adds such a great fluttering texture against some of the heavier roses in the center.
My favorite combo is the dusty rose blended with a deep brick red. It’s the perfect blend of soft and masculine and classic.
Many ask the type of greens that I use and I love Southern Smilax from Texas. It gives such a wispy and romantic vibe against those concrete and glass and steel.
Corey crying when seeing Monique is my favorite! Nothing makes me tear up than watching the groom see his bride walk down to him. Gahhh I’m such a sucker and hopeless romantic!
Congrats Corey and Monique!! I’m so happy for you both!
