I am delighted to share these images from a shoot I did with Janie Medley of JM Flora and mega-blogger behind The Bride's Cafe. I adore Janie and as I have mentioned before on several occasions, I feel like her floral work is an extension of her glorious personality. I am working with Janie on two weddings this fall, (one this Saturday!) and I cannot wait to see what delicacies she creates!
What I love about this bouquet is this: The color palette is exquisite, and the texture. Good gracious that texture! I love how Janie has such an artistic sense of tight and loose. Notice the long, lighter plant tendrils peaking out. Notice the soft ripples of the orange flowers and the tighter folds of the ranunculus. I love the lacey, herb-like veils of green that add points of interest throughout the side. It's a masterpiece!
I adore the large leaves in this bouquet. The leaves almost look water colored. Sensational pops of fuchsia that really let the color take center stage, without being overpowering.
Dana Fitzgerald, my favorite Martha Stewart alumnus, styled the orange bouquet with the wooden logs. Darling!
I could blame it on Project Runway and how many times I hear the word "cohesive" roll out of the judges verbage, but talk about cohesive! I love how these BHLDN shoes accent the bouquet. Look at those little pods that almost look like scales...now look at the shoes. Notice the similarity? Cohesive! I love weddings where every little detail corresponds loosely to the other elements at play. It can be texture, color, pattern, or myriad ways, the point is when details correspond and mingle in a cohesive way, if you listen close, you can hear angels sing.
