Flowers for The Utah Bride!

Well the Ultimate Utah Wedding is underway with our soon to be newlyweds and now they need your help to plan the big day! This morning we appeared on Good Things Utah and presented Lee and Katrina with two beautiful arrangements for their centerpieces...
Design #1
Our first design we decided to go very contemporary. Simple yet elegant. Here we have James Story Orchids in a tall square glass vase with Manzanita Branches and Curly Willow to mimic the branch-like stems of the orchids. We've added a few smaller pieces at the base with votive candles. Since the venue has such high ceilings we really wanted height to play a role in this design. The great thing about these particular orchids is that they make such a statement by themselves you really don't have to do much else with them.

Design #2
 Our next design was a little more methodical. Since the couple is getting married on the 50 yard line, we wanted to incorporate the look of the football field into the design. By tiering these black wooden containers we were able to moss the bottom tier bringing the look of the grass into the arrangement. We have a great mix of flowers in this design. We've got beautiful white and red Dahlias which are a great Summer wedding flower - they come in a variety of colors and sizes. We've got white Gerbera Daisies with dark centers to tie in the containers. We've got beautiful Red Hypericum berries, Safari Sunset, and Red Roses. We've added a Lichen Branch to bring that mossy look from the bottom tier and incorporate it in the flowers. So as you can see we have a lot of textures here - a really fun centerpiece!

We need to hear from you! Go to our Facebook Page and vote which one you would like to see adorn their wedding day, and then tune in to Good Things Utah this Friday at 10 am to see what is on deck for the bridal bouquet!
