Mary and I love to add little details to each wedding that help make them unique. About a month ago we got to do a wedding for Colleen and Stephen. Colleen was looking for a fall theme with a little something extra. We ran with the theme and decided to make that little something extra feathers. We thought about adding acorns, or fall leaves, but once we saw these feathers we knew we had to use them. The striking hues of dark blue and green and really stood out in the bouquets, adding that extra touch of glamour that we were looking for. Check it out....I def see more feathers in our future (watch out Sarah B....I think your January wedding is going to feature some gorgeous white feathers!).
Colleen's bouquet included calla lilies, roses, ranunculus, hypericum berries, stephanotis, and of course a few feathers tucked in around the bottom. The bouquet turned out so elegant; I loved the touch of color from the ranunculas and the feathers, it added just the right amount of contrast. Here is a close up shot of the top of the bouquet. You can see how well everything worked together. The feathers peeking out of the bottom added a touch of fun to this elegant bouquet. I adored these bridesmaid bouquets. The rich fall colors really popped against truffle gowns. We added more feathers to these, and a strand of dark brown beads strung across the top. The combination of red gerbers, purple lisianthus, yellow roses, with a touch of orange coming from the ranunculus and hypericum berries really created a gorgeous fall bouquet. I added this picture to show how just a few flowers can really dress up a unity candle. These gorgeous orange roses accented this unity candle perfectly.
Hope you enjoyed our little adventure with feathers....keep on checking, I am sure we will be back with more ideas for feathers through 2010!
