Alaska Weddings: Carrie + Christopher

It’s been a busy summer of weddings and I’ve still got more to go. This week’s was one of my favorites. Bride Carrie asked for cheerful blooms mixed with Alaska foliage — just my style!

Pink, pink and pink. I love it. Spray roses, Japanese aster and salmon hypericum berry were the central blooms.

I also harvested wild raspberries, grass and ferns from Anchorage forests.

The bridal bouquet was a showstopper. Alaska-grown peonies surrounded by Alaska foliage — pure perfection. What really did me in was the ribbon, which was made from recycled Indian sari silk.

The bridal crown was chock full of color and cheer. Here I am modeling it:

Those tiny peonies are to die for!

The boutonnieres were special too. Little wooden flowers were incorporated into the groom’s bout along with bright fuchsia gomphrena. The bride had requested wild clover but it was a little too far along with this sunny summer we’ve been having, so gomphrena was a perfect substitute.

Every wedding this summer I’ve learned something new. This one was no exception. I got to design a topper for the groom’s cake. So much fun! (Thanks to my friend Penny who was a guest at the wedding and was able to snap a photo for me.)

I couldn’t be happier with today’s flowers. I hope the bride and groom have a happy day!
