Today for Flower Friday Kelli with Blooms & Blossoms joins us with a look at 3 bouquets she created for one lucky fall bride! We love the look at one color scheme but style done in various ways and Kelli’s insight into this! Not to mention the gorgeous river and fall atmosphere! Possibly the most beautiful time of year here! Take it away Kelli!
Fall happens to be my favorite time of year. I love the crisp fall air, the sound of crunching leaves and all the beautiful colors. Did I mention the colors?? I LOVE the colors! And I love that you don’t have to use the traditional red, yellow and orange to get the feel of fall. I loved this bridal session for many reasons. The Jordan River was especially beautiful on this crisp fall morning, the bride was as lovely as they come and the colors were amazing. For this particular session we used lots of purple flowers. Purple is one of my favorite colors and it works so well with this season.
Our goal was to have some variety in the flowers. Of course I wanted to give the bride what she was hoping for but I also wanted to feature a bouquet that was trending and a bouquet that was more creative. There are only a few elements in each bouquet that differentiates them from the others, but it’s enough difference that each bouquet might appeal to a different bride.
For the first bouquet I chose to use mostly flowers with minimal foliage. I loved how soft and beautiful the blooms looked together. We used lavender lisianthus, cream roses, purple clematis, anemones, white freesia and accents of pieris.
For the second bouquet we designed a slightly larger bouquet and added in more foliage and some pinecones as an earthy touch. For this bouquet I used cream roses, anemones, purple clematis, purple ranunculus, white freesia, lavender lisianthus, pieris and geranium leaves.
For the third bouquet we used the same flowers as the previous bouquets but added in white spider mums, purple stock and some fun glittered fall leaves. We designed this bouquet to be more asymmetrical, which has been really popular this year.
This time of year is so inspirational to me as a florist. I love that I can walk out my front door and see such beautiful colors and textures. If I were to give advice to fall brides I would say look at the beauty around you and let it inspire you. The options for fall bouquets are truly endless!
