It’s here! It’s here! It’s FINALLY here!!! Months of brain storming and collaborating with the AMAZING florist Floral Design by Reina, our very own Floral Friday has been born! For the longest time we have wanted to have a weekly blog series, never pin pointing exactly what we wanted to showcase, until now. Week after week we work an array of extremely talented wedding vendors, but we just connected with Reina. You know when it happens, just instant friends. Plus, as a photographer, who doesn’t like to photograph gorgeous florals all the time!
This week we’re sharing a table arrangement Reina created for an outdoor event in May. Most flowers are seasonal, but these specifically are easily available in Spring. For a bride, that means they are much more affordable! One thing we’ve learned with working with florists is to provide them with inspiration of what you like, and a color pallet you’re wanting them to match, then give them a bit of creative freedom. This is their art, and if we don’t constrict them into a mold of “match this photo exactly,” we allow them to create something we will love! They know what is seasonally available, which will last longer in different temperatures and have stronger fragrances, flowers that will complement the ones you’ve chosen that you may not even know exist, and those that are more cost-effective. That’s a win win for everyone!
Reina created this table arrangement to be the center piece of long wooden king style tables. Wanting to keep a nature look and feel, and not weigh down the florals with heavy bases, she wrapped the stems in ferns, creating this extremely elegant look. We are so excited to start sharing amazing floral ideas with you each and every Friday! If you haven’t guessed, Reina is the chosen florist for Rachel and Paul’s wedding, and they are both already dreaming up big things!
