Greenery Bouquet

Lundy + Anders | Utah Greenery Wedding

Lundy Utah Winter Bridals

Greenery. It's the thing. It's been on trend for about a year now and seems to be hitting it's peak this year! And oh do we love it! There is so much goodness and depth and texture and shape that comes with greenery. It's unique in it's own way and brings out both a classic style as well as a more modern, boho style. 

Lundy was one of the most classic brides we have ever met! She wanted clean, textural, simple, and timeless. And she wanted green. So off we went! Her bouquet doesn't actually have ANY flower blooms in it! Do you see that? It's all greenery, textural flowers, and what we call filler flowers...meaning they don't have big blooms on them. 

What I love about her bouquet is the depth and range of texture in it! So I know you're asking yourself, what? No flowers? But do you really think they're necessary? Give us some fern, a bit of eucalyptus, acacia, holly, pitt, snow on the mountain, desert yearning, privet, veronica, olive, bay leaf, and scabiosa pods and we are more than happy! There is so much to look at that we don't even miss the focal blooms!!!

Besides the fact that Lundy's eyes are the impeccable match to the green. Take a look! She has THE most gorgeous eyes! 

We're all about that bout too! It's textural, it's simple, it's manly and stately. It's classic. But not boring. It's what our grooms are asking for! None of the focals and all of the texture!

And finally, ribbon. Gold velvet ribbon. Classic.

"I'm boho at heart and was determined to have a boho wedding...but then I found this dress..."

That's how my conversation started with Michelle. Her dress was absolutely divine. Lace detail, sheer lace sleeve, a back comb veil that was to die for. Not really boho, no. But gorgeous as could be!

Michelle's venue was full of plants, a mini garden of Eden greenhouse, placed right in the middle of Salt Lake City. so we really didn't need a lot of color on the tables or much detail either. In this instance, less was definitely more.

And that left Michelle. Her stately dress. That beautiful curly hair. And Nate. His dark suit. Their stunning features together. 

We decided to put most of our emphasis, all of the color, and the tiniest glimpses of boho, into her bouquet. This girl needed to call all of the attention. And we both got giddy when we decided on a plum/magenta ribbon! Yes!!! That was the starting point that got the juices flowing. The rest just came together!

Michelle gave me few specifics: magenta/plum, a soft orange, blue. And let me run with it. But run with blue? Um...not my favorite flower color. Because, well, flower just don't grow blue. The options are so few and limited. But, I thought, we could use a purplish blue. And I ordered in the blue anemones. I've really only seen them a dark purple. But that could work, right?!

You guys!!!!! i have never, ever seen them come in this color! Ever. Blue!!! True, royal, beautiful blue! I'll probably never see them again. So blue. I love you!
