Utah Bride Blog Winter Editorial Shoot {Flowers}

Happy Friday! And …. Happy Holidays! We hope you have enjoyed our week of winter editorial inspiration! These are possibly our favorite weeks of publication all year long and we know you love them to!  Thanks for visually feasting with us! We finish off the week with flowers as our tradition dictates, and we have Amanda with Branches Floral on to share with us some insight into her elegant floral ensembles!

The venue really played a key factor in the size and selection of the whole floral ensemble. With St Regis being as grandiose and upscale as it is, the florals also needed to reflect this and accent the venue accordingly. While I know that centerpieces like the one constructed for the shoot can be quite pricey, I chose to incorporate impact blooms like hydrangea and football mums that cover a large surface area while still being soft and classic. This can keep your cost down while still creating a generous feel.

I wanted to keep the floral palate subdued with shades of whites, champagne and ivories with hints of gilded greens. These shades would compliment the saturation of metallic’s that were adorned throughout the tablescape and create a ethereal feel. I was especially set on using the Sahara roses which come in a muted shade of champagne. They really added depth to centerpieces and brought hues of a soft gold to the upper part of the table design. By accenting the designs with weeping flowers, it provides movement and ensures its not to static from the height of the arrangements. 

The bouquet was a classic beauty. I didn’t want to do something too crazy modern as the St. Regis, to me, calls for a classy structure. I completely adored the glitter wrap which tied in with the scheme and added a touch of glamour. Swoon!

Thanks Amanda for sharing with us some insight here on these gorgeous blooms that compliment the palette of metallic’s so well! And another thank you to Mara with Events by LMG for epic planning and design!
