We created a smaller version for the bridesmaid bouquet. Deep violet lisianthus added a rich tone with the "cool waters" rose.

Can you have too much pink at a wedding? Never! Here is a lovely mix of Sophie roses, anemones, lisianthus heather and bluplureum. The tulips were just perfect for this classic compote of garden blooms.

For example, picking flowers that hold up in the heat of summer is always a challenge. It is much easier to choose the blooms that would be thriving in higher temperatures in the garden as they grow. Summer Dahlias are delicate but hold their own, roses are tough and stand up well out of water if properly handled as well.
An unusual element to add to your wedding would be succulents. They have great natural colors and make striking and organic designs for boutonnieres and bouquets.
Callas are a perfect choice year round for hand tied bouquets because they do so well out of water. They are available year round but they are a particularly wise choice for hot days.
A truly elegant use of sedum in a bouquet. Here we have dahlias, mini cynbidium orchids, roses and snowberries. The snowberries are available only very late in summer, closer to fall.

The bride chose to work gerbera daisies into her theme so we had them in each bouquet along with having them for boutonnieres. The boutonnieres we made at the last minute to keep them as fresh as possible in the heat of a June day in Atlanta.
Flower girls are just gorgeous. Every one we have ever seen! Pomanders are really nice alternatives to traditional baskets. They can be a little too tempting to swing around, so be sure and give them to the younger children just before they walk down that aisle!
