A few weeks back we did a turquoise wedding, and though turquoise is a HOT color trend this year, bride's dont usually ask for their flowers to actually be that color. This bride came to me after a flopped bridal sitting bouquet that turned out more green then turquoise. She thought because i do some airbrushing that i could pull off what she wanted. it did take some persistence and i guess it paid off because i complied with her wishes and she got a perfect match on color thats for sure! a challenge non the less. thanks shalice!

the main focus of the bouquet was clearly the amazing casa lily lined with turq gems. painted mini callas brought some pow color and white roses, tulips, and lilies filled it up. small accents of silver foliage were also involved.

wrist corsages were budget friendly hand made wire cuffs with greens and white button mums and little bits of silver foliage.

the bridesmaids carried a single calla with a stem detail that they later dropped into a vase to double as a centerpiece. the men all wore classic white calla or rose bouts. We made a few centerpieces for variety, all of which were simple, a tall silver curly willow focus, short turq focus and of course the bridesmaids vases. simple and unique ... turq unique.

WORKSHOP NOTE: thanks to all of you who have expressed interest. I have decided to only do 5 travel workshops this year and 3 of those spots have been booked, so if your contemplating this at all please contact me ASAP as my own wedding schedule is also booking up! thanks!
