Bohemian Bridal Bouquet

The Bohemian Love Inspiration shoot was developed by the creative ladies at the Queen's Bees and the photos are from the amazing Mirelle Carmichael Photography.  As a floral designer these types of shoots are what get the juices flowing and remind us why we love "playing with flowers".  After all a bohemian is a free-spirited, open-minded artist, so this was a perfect expression of my passion. For the flowers, I wanted to blend in textural elements with pops of color and a whimsical feel, to emulate the free-minded bohemian.

I choose the bouquet to be placed inside the horn to give the bride a rustic woodland feel. The flowers for the bouquet were protea pink minks which have a great fuzzy texture and blend well with the feathers seen through out the setting and of course the hanging green amaranths give the bouquet a free-flowing feel and compliment the head-piece created by Asha from the Queen's Bees.

The tablescape was created with pops of color and lots of texture with feathers, carnations (yes I said carnations, but I bet you didn't even know that those beautiful pink flowers in the center were carnations), trailing clematis vine and natural moss as the "linen" on-top of the wooden pallet.

The tent on the beach had a welcoming hanging antler mounted with beaded hypericum berries, garden roses, hanging amaranthus and beaded hypericum feathers flowing down.

Thank you to the lovely ladies for including me on this inspiration shoot and I hope all you lovelies enjoy viewing it!
