Mercedes + Tyler

Mercedes and Tyler Utah LDS Wedding

Because I’ll never get over this sweet, gorgeous late summer wedding! Mercedes and Ty are still some of my all-time favorite people and I jump at every chance to see them! Mercedes gown was absolute perfection. Ty’s light gray suite was elegant yet understated. The way they look at each other was indescribable.

And the dahlias! Oh. My. Word. If you’re getting married in August or September, you MUST have dahlias! Mercedes wanted to incorporate some antique frames that were meaningful so we created this beautiful backdrop for their ring ceremony. Dahlias galore in muted fall tones with all that lush greenery. Oh take me back! Congratulations to this beautiful couple and thank you for being friends forever!

The Potted Pansy Textural Bouquet

Bringing the outdoors inside.  Part of my theory when it comes to floral design is not to change, modify, or manipulate. It is to enhance and beautify.

It is to use the beauty of the earth that we see daily outside, inside of our homes, building and interior spaces. It is to bring those components that calm and move us, to the events that charm us.

So you'll continue to see branches and leaves, weeds, both living and dead things, and the best surprises from nature, in each of the arrangements I make. It really is nature's perfect beauty and the flowers in their imperfect form, that create the magic.

The Best Flowers + Foliage for Fall Bouquets

Fall is my absolute most favorite season of them all for so many reasons! Not only are the colors just jaw-dropingly gorgeous, but its colors are just so warm and inviting, especially for wedding bouquets!!

Fall weddings are all about embracing the season and the nature changing around you! In Utah, the mountains start to change color in early September and gradually the colors fill the valley through October -- making this time of year just perfect for saying your vows and celebrating love!

What flower colors are best for each season?

If you're getting married in Utah around this time of year, it's fun to select colors that tie your wedding to the natural world around you, and only enhances and amplifies the decor you choose! One of the most commonly asked questions I hear is what coloring is best for each season. I like to respond by saying that nature tells us what is best already! Each season, nature gives us flowers and foliage that are truly distinctive and indicate what colors are best to use for wedding bouquets, decorations and backdrops.

Fall is full of golden tones ranging from the very light, almost champagne side to the dark, coppery side. To achieve these color ranges, consider using some (or many!) of the following flowers for a stunning fall wedding:

Adding Foliage to Your Bouquet

And it wouldn't quite be a true fall bouquet if you didn't have some gorgeous foliage! When I can, I love finding some of my favorite fall foliage right in my backyard and foraging the colorful greens for my clients' floral decor. But if I'm purchasing, I'll almost always go for the following foliage:
