Le Rivage bridal show a few weeks ago at their bridal showcase and open house. There was so much amazing energy in the room! I had a fantastic time meeting engaged couples, their families, and wedding parties in addition to meeting exceptional Sacramento wedding vendors! The ballroom was transformed as vendors decorated their tables creating little blips of weddings on steroids with 5-tiered cakes, photo booths, entire tables with amazing linens and place-settings, flowers, gowns, giants photos and more! I was lucky enough to design bouquets for the real life brides of La Soie. Beauty Box Makeup Arts transformed models from morning sweats sipping on coffee to aisle-ready! In addition to La Soie and Beauty Box Makeup Arts, there were two fantastic photographers at the booth: Nicole Cook Photography and Allison Stahl Studio & Design. Allison Stahl shared these images of the bouquets I designed for the day! Which is your favorite?
The bouquet above is made for the modern bride who likes simple, clean lines but is a little bit playful! Bear grass dances in a lovely arch away from cymbidium orchids, calla lilies and roses all hand-tied with stems wrapped in satin ribbon and crystals hanging down on the opposing side from the bear grass.
A giant king protea was the focal point of the bouquet below designed in a bouquet hold with intense blue hydrangea, succulents, stock, roses, orchids, curly willow and more! It's my take on a prestigious but alternative garden bouquet.
Intense red-orange and light orange roses were the focal point of the bouquet below designed in one of the brand new European bouquet holders. Dusty miller, silver brunia and orange carnations complimented the vibrant roses.
A small hand-tied bouquet of intense red roses with black feather and crystal accents and a collar of black tulle seemed to the perfect compliment to this dramatic black and beige dress!
Refreshing in whites and greens, below is another hand-tied bouquet with a garden feel. I think my favorite aspect of this bouquet is that I did not use any roses in it, yet it is still very elegant and bridal. Football mums, ornamental kale, ranunculus, gunni eucalyptus and variegated geranium leaves are just a few of the elements I used.
