Alaska Weddings: a weekend of Lisas

Flower combinations and colors constantly amaze me. This weekend I had two weddings that couldn’t have been more different. Both were rustic. Both brides happened to be named Lisa.

The first Lisa is having a country western style wedding with dusty rose, pale pink, ivory and tan themes. I was thrilled when Rebecca of LaBoum Events asked me to make these flowers. She wanted an arrangement inside a birdcage. Uh…yes! That’s so cool!

I picked wild moss from a nearby forest to line the cage and filled it with eucalyptus of all kinds, dusty rose carnations, roses, feathers, stock, mums and limonium.

The bouquet was shabby chic.

The bouts were perfectly dainty.

The other Lisa wanted a totally different palette of oranges, yellows and reds. I found the most precious mini sunflowers and breathtaking protea. Then I built around them with orange lilies and dusty rose carnations.

Amazing how different these two weddings are but both so beautiful.
