boudoir brooch bouquet

I just love a woman who knows her own heart!!! The lovely client, Debbie contacted me to create a custom  brooch bouquet, I went through my normal questionnaire … “when is your wedding date?”  her response, “oh I’m not a bride, I just want one for my bedroom!”  Needless to say my questions went in a  slightly  direction…  Her response upon receiving her Boudoir Brooch Bouquet… “Oh my God it’s beautiful, I love it, love it, love it!!!  An that is why I do what I do!  Creating smiles one at a time!  🙂

Custom Brooch Bouquet

Vintage Brooch Bouquet

Baubles and Brides bouquet

This Custom Brooch Bouquet is a true labor of love… the amazing Mother of the bride, Viviane contacted me determined to have one of my bouquets for her daughters February wedding in the Bahamas! No problem… except that we only had a few weeks to pull it off! I am always willing to except the challenge of a rush order,  if I have the stock or the bride has all her goodies ready to go.  Neither however was the case… Viviane did all the hunting of the new pieces while I did all the gathering of the vintage/antique pieces, the fact that she worked for FedEx was such a blessing! 63 emails, a dozen phone calls, countless sneak peeks, 4 shipments and a trip to meet the bride on a layover and… One very happy surprised bride with an over-the- top thankful mother!  What a delight is was to collaborate with you Viviane! Travel safe and congratulations!

No more words are necessary for you to grasp the depth of her love story, beautifully captured by Nightingale Photography… enjoy! …and they lived happily ever after.

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

Flower bomb

 

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.
