So many sweet little details about this custom, very vintage brooch bouquet!

From personal pieces given by  family members to the little framed photo of their engagement and finally the tiny little embellished vile to hold a bit of the sand from the beach in Cabo where this precious couple exchanged their vows, this vintage inspired bouquet was the beautiful final touch for Julie’s destination wedding!  Even though I rarely get to meet any of my brides, through emails, phone calls and texts, my digging to find ways to add personal touches to my one-of-a-kind creations, I feel like I have a new friend by the time I ship! Each bouquet is so unique that this job never gets old and always surprises me with a blessing or two!  Congratulations to you Julie, may you live happily ever after!

Roller Derby Bride!

I can not even begin to express how fun this custom Brooch Bouquet was to create! When a bride chooses to do all the hunting of pieces I am often a bit nervous to see what they gather, then comes the challenge to creatively put it together! But oh how I squealed when I opened this brides treasures… seriously, spiders, cougars, scorpions, dice, 30 different skulls and yes, that is a mini brass knuckles behind that spider! I talk about being an out-of-the-box bride quite often, not following the norm, creating opportunities to add your personality and uniqueness, Jamielee did just that! She is an ex roller derby player and her quirkiness is all over this bouquet!  What a treasure and dare I say heirloom she now has of her very special day!

What a delight it was to work with the lovely McCall. She is one of those people that just light up the room with her smile! Plus it is always a treat for me to have a local bride and get to have face-to-face meetings! McCall and her mom did all the hunting for this beautiful pink brooch bouquet, each stem was then wrapped in shades of green for the just picked from the garden look!  I can’t wait to see her day of photos! Stay tuned! Oh, and a big thank you to Stephanie of Ribbons and Rust for the referral.

This is the latest beauty to leave the studio… I offer 3 custom Brooch Bouquet options to my brides, Yours, Mine & Ours. Let me explain… Yours, the bride provides all the pieces, With Mine, I do all the hunting. Ours, is a combination, the bride collects all she can and then I fill in the remainder. This one-of-a-kind Brooch Bouquet for The lovely bride Kellie is a great example of “Ours”. Kellie gathered about 1/2 and then according to her theme/style, I filled in the rest. What a beautiful collaboration, wouldn’t you agree? Can’t wait to see the photos!
