Kendell & Bjurn // Sweet backyard wedding

This is Kendell and Bjurn.  They were married in a sweet little backyard ceremony in Marietta.  Kendell is a grad student at UCLA and we arranged all the details of her wedding flowers via email.  She sent family members to pick up her flowers so the first time I ever saw her was in the official wedding photos!  While that is certainly not typical, it proves that email and photos are a viable means to select and plan your wedding flowers if face-to-face consultations are not possible.

Kendell's bouquet was an all pink collection of hydrangeas, ranunculus, and tulips.  

Her bridesmaids carried bouquets of tulips in pink and soft blush.  

Kendell had a 'man of honor' and his boutonniere was a pink ranunculus bloom with pink kalanchoe accents.

Kendell constructed an origami canopy for her wedding day celebration.  Here's a great shot of the entire wedding party in the backyard.

I wish all the best to Kendell and Bjurn in their new life together!


Theresa & Brian // St. Judes Catholic Church and Greystone at Piedmont Park

Whew!  It has been crazy busy here at bloom lately!  But... I finally have a chance to catch up!  And what better time than the heat of summer to harken back to a cool, grey, misty day in February.  Theresa and Brian were married at Saint Judes Catholic Church with a reception at Greystone at Piedmont Park.

Theresa's floral style was "soft, with a pop of deep color and lots of texture".  This was achieved using ivory hydrangea, ivory wax flower, black baccara roses, pale pink roses, pale pink tulips, smokebush and mini echeveria.

Her bridesmaids were the same, just a bit smaller for a cohesive look.

Here's a unique shot of the boutonnieres.  It always makes me nervous when I pin the groomsmen and then they take their jackets off!  Flowers are fragile, people!  :)

Love these Piedmont Park shots... 

Reception centerpieces were collections of cylinder vases with ivory and pale pink hydrangea, pale pink roses and tulips, wax flower, black baccara roses, blackberries, smokebush, rex begonia leaves and dusy miller on top of gorgeous aubergine linens.

Great angle looking down on the top of the cake.  Pink roses, echeveria, rex begonia and blackberries.

Beautiful evening skyline shot.  Best wishes to Theresa and Brian - two naval engineers living happily ever after!  All photography courtesy of T2 Photography.
