Floral Fridays: Before and After

Brides often ask us about the process of creating their wedding flowers, so here at Bella Signature Design on select fridays we'll post some pictures of flowers and accessories we are working with from that weekend's wedding, and show you the results on Monday!

This weekend we are working with Kimberly, a physician who was clear about her likes and dislikes, and was really easy to work with! I love that. Kimberly's wedding is at Kiana Lodge, one of my favorite places to design weddings - it is so picturesque there! Our Bainbridge studio is only 10 minutes away, so we usually create any kitsap county weddings from there versus our Seattle studio.
Kimberly loves purple, so she came to us with a color palette of deep amethyst and Lavender, with pops of chartreuse to make the palette "springy" as I like to say. So many purple weddings this year - purple is still going strong in 2009...

Since Kimberly chose "Victorian Lilac" a soft blue lavender for her bridesmaids, we choose "Ocean Song" roses to bring in the lighter lavender.

Cool Water and Blue Curiosa roses brought in the medium purples, and for a true royal purple we have Lisianthus. Bright green Viburnum, green cymbidium orchids, purple mokara orchids and some fun fern curls!

The linens - a beautiful plum overlay with applique blooms in leaves! I love three-dimensional linens!

Results on Monday!
