Ct.Wedding Florist: Marrying soft and romantic with modern

Special thanks to Erik Johnson, (my most wonderful friend) at Scandinavian Photography, www.theartofseeing.com, for his unique expertise behind the camera. His generosity in sharing these photos and his knowledge in digital photography has been instrumental in my visual success.
Can all gowns be so beautiful?.....Jill's was. She chose an ivory Melissa Sweet gown, soft, and romantic, with layers of sunburst pleated net and french lace. Her gown required a soft delicate bouquet of white scabiosa, queen anne's lace, gardenias and white roses, mimicking the gown texture perfectly. For a modern touch we interwove curly willow tips throughout.
I was so pleased, surprising Jill, with a specially designed couture bouquet handle. Creating a ruffled skirt of pleated net from her gown material was my challenge for the week. She loved it.
Check out the bridesmaids.....bouquets of white cymbidium orchids, succulents, and green hanging amaranth....very modern for very modern dresses.
New modern design showcases beautifully intergrated into a soft and romanitc theme.
Special thanks to Jill and her sister, Gina. We really got it right.
