Palest Blush Bouquet at Battery Gardens

Bouquet Recipe Battery Gardens_Melissa Kruse

It’s no secret: we love blush wedding flowers. And creating this textured, romantic bridal bouquet, in the palest palette of blush and ivory, was pure pleasure. Beautiful bride Adriana wanted flowers with a classic but fresh look. Her bouquet was softly rounded and dimensional, with stems partially wrapped in ivory satin ribbon.

We chose several of our favorite specialty roses:dusty-blush Quicksand roses, warmer blush Keira roses, and pale-blush La Perla roses. Using a variations of a similar color adds depth, even to light-colored bouquets. Ranunculus, spray roses and garden roses, brought cream, ivory and white into the mix. A few sprigs of seeded eucalyptus accented the flowers.

Mood Board: Castle Garden Wedding

Mood Board-Castle-Garden

After meeting a bride-to-be and talking with her about initial thoughts and inspirations, we put together mood boards and color palettes. Today, we’re sharing a mood board for an outdoor wedding, held in the gardens of a castle venue. Ceremony inspiration images, of a lavish floral arrangement set in a stone urn, and a grass aisle thickly strewn with petals, set a romantic, extravagant tone, perfect for this setting.

Starting with a soft color palette of peach, ivory, blush and green, we added depth by choosing flowers that also incorporated slightly more saturated tones. Peach Juliet garden roses deepen to coral at their centers. Butter-yellow parrot tulips pick up the warm tones present in cream hydrangea and stock, and ivory garden roses. Pale blush comes into play with ranunculus, and with the outer petals of pink tree peonies, while that flower’s deeper-pink, inner petals surround a yellow center. Italian ruskus, jasmine vines, seeded eucalyptus and geranium leaf added a range of medium to dark greens, and lush textures, evocative of a summer garden in fullest bloom.

Mood Board: Bridal Bouquet Inspiration

Mood Board - Floral Inspirations White Bridal Bouquet

For a bride-to-be who wants classic, romantic, white, wedding flowers, we created this mood board with an inspiration shot of a very full, rounded bridal bouquet. White ranunculus and garden roses, with warm ivory to cream centers, will give the bouquet sumptuous, petal-dense texture, with enough soft depth to stand out against a white wedding dress.

I wanted to share this particular mood board because it’s a great example of how we, as wedding floral designers, execute ideas. A simple, classic, white, wedding bouquet is always an elegant choice. By putting thought and care into flower selection and an exacting color palette, we are able to elevate a simple concept. The result will be a beautiful, bespoke bridal bouquet, with a look that is both timeless and utterly of-the-moment.
