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!

Brooch Bouquet & Dog Collar inspired by, The Owl and the Pussy-cat

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea in a beautiful pea-green boat…  I shared back in May a sneak peek of Bijou’s blinged out dog collar for bride Lisa and her Owl and the Pussy-cat themed wedding. Here are a few more details.  She spent over a year collecting all the pieces for her custom brooch bouquet, once gathered it was all shipped to me in not one, but two  boxes weighing over 5lbs each! 169 pieces came tumbling out onto my dinning table… Yikes! It was quite the process to put just the right combination together of her favorites and to keep the finished bouquet under 6lbs (even at that we laughed about her needing to lift weights just to carry it.) Her dress was the perfect  choice to complete her look.  Flower Bomb by Ian Stuart   (one of my favorites).  And lets not forget “Bijou the Basset Hound”  acting as the ring bearer, sporting her own custom embellished collar! I can not wait to see the photos! Thanks to Lisa for being so much fun to work with! My brides really are the best! …and hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, they danced by the light of the moon, the moon, they danced in the light of the moon.

Custom Sentimental Boutonnieres

30 Jan

Custom Boutonnieres
For my custom bouquet brides I offer a boutonniere for their grooms… my treat! As always I ask if they will share a bit about their groom or send me any pieces that have meaning for them. My bride Stephanie had me make 3, one for her groom, best man and one for her adult son who would be escorting her down the isle. So many personal pieces in these… The groom is the single bear (he works for California State parks, also bear is his nickname), the best man is the Jack & coke with the bears (also a State park guy), and finally here son, his was full of personal pieces to him ie the guitar, baseball and cross with the addition of grandpas cufflink. Each had a small decorative cone included for a pop of fresh foliage to be added. Such a great example of Out-of-the-box thinking and allowing your personality to be expressed. Love ya Stephanie!
