Take a Walk on the Wildside

This wildflower-inspired bouquet was one of my favorites to create. The loose look paired with vibrant blooms that emulate the flowers of rugged mountain slopes excited my creative side. I left the stems loose and uneven to give the impression of a fresh-picked bundle. Yarrow, lavender, and dogwood berries complete the bouquet with a wild touch.

Ring Around the Rosies

I made this beautiful rose bouquet with all fresh garden roses. I love the full, ripe look of a natural rose cut straight from the garden. The smell of such roses is incredible, and floral shop roses are definitely no rival to the scent of roses cut from fresh earth and air.

The natural look of this bouquet lends itself perfectly to a sophisticated country wedding. I love the blend of red, orange, pink, and white roses. The look is slightly unrestrained, yet elegant.
