Gerbera Daisy Bridal BouquetsMore pictures from 7/3/10! A twist on a red, white, and blue theme for 4th of July weekend.

Gerbera Daisy Wedding Bouquets

Hot Colors Gerbera Daisy Bridal Bouquet

Gerbera daisies have been a favorite of bride’s for many years now. As bright and bold colors become the standard for wedding flowers gerberas have become a bridal flower staple.

Bridal Bouqet with bright gerbera daisies


In this bridal bouquet we filled the voids left between the large round silhouette of the gerbera daisies with bright spra roses in orange and hot pink.


Bridemaid's Bouquet with Gerbera Daisies


In a smaller size the bridesmaid’s bouquets were comprised of only gerbera daisies.  The stem wrap echoed the wedding party’s attire of black and white.


Lavish Wedding Flowers in Whites and Ivories

Ivory Bridal Bouquet with Roses and Spray RosesClassic wedding whites create a luxurious feel for this formal spring wedding.

This large round hand tied is comprised of 30 creamy Vendella roses and 30 stems of ivory spray roses. Loops of ivory stain ribbon form a lush collar around the bouquet with a cascade of loops and tails toward the front.

Handtied bouquet with white Hydrangea and Ivory Roses


This medium hand tied bouquet was carried by the bridesmaids in this wedding but would serve beautifully as a bouquet for a bride as well.  White hydrangeas and ivory Vendella Roses are paired together for a classic style bouquet.


White Centerpieces in Tall Vases

 These round handtied bouquets played double duty: they were used to decorate the altar at the church and again as centerpieces at the reception.

More Beautiful Weddings

I just recieved pictures from two of our recent weddings. David Ghent was the photographer for each of these weddings and he has shared with us some beautiful images that feature  the bouquets and arrangements we designed for these brides. His website features more of his beautiful photographs. He can be reached via email at or via telephone at 217-649-7499. Thank you Dave for sharing your talent with us.


Dionne and Drew were married back in August. They had chosen a green color scheme for their wedding and immediately gravitated toward gren button mums (often called Kermits) and Jade Roses. Dionne was a big fan of gypsophila (other wise known as baby’s breath). We used these flowers in an asymetrical free form cascade for her bouquet adding bells of ireland and lily grass to elongate the drop of the cascade.


 The bridesmaids carried single rose clutches with lush greens and gypsophila while the men wore boutonnieres of green button mums and green hypericum berries.













Elegant and sophisticated were the words Jessica used to describe the bouquet she wanted to carry down the aislefor her October 24th wedding.



 The bouquet we designed for her exceeded her expections. It featured Sahara roses in a warm taupe color to coordinate with the champagne accents of her dress. Creamy vendella roses added an ivory to the color pallette, with hydrangea and ranunculus contributing a bright white. Touches of green hypericum enriched the texture.
