Alaska Weddings: Roxanne + Michael

I’ve been waiting all summer to use Alaska-grown dahlias. When bride Roxanne contacted me and requested “designer’s choice” bouquets, I knew it was finally my chance.

Roxanne’s dress was unusual – traditional red Chinese brocade with a peacock embroidered in gold. It only made sense to include gold sprayed eucalyptus and peacock feathers.

This bouquet was over the top thanks to the enormous dinner plate dahlia from All Dahlia’d Up Flower Farm.

The bridesmaids’ bouquets were equally as luscious with smaller pink and purple dahlias, waxflower, myrtle, seeded eucalyptus and white spray roses.

I couldn’t resist putting a peacock feather in Michael the groom’s boutonniere.

One of my favorite bouts to boot!

The groomsmen’s bouts were all similar but slightly different. I love that!

The bride and groom were wed in misty, beautiful Girdwood this afternoon. Many congratulations to the happy couple!
