Meet Bridal Bouquet Illustrator Ashley Cecil

Ever wish you could keep your bridal bouquet  as beautiful as the day you walked down the aisle?

Bouquet Recipe: Something Blue

This arrangement borrows from the pastel color palette of spring by combining light and dark blue delphinium with lavender lisianthus and white garden roses to create a dimensional arrangement that is as unforgettable as the bride.
