Things have been busy around here! Wedding season kicked in to gear about a month ago and we're now in the thick of it. Our apologies go out to all of you for the lack-luster frequency of our blog posts as of late, but just know it's because we're cooking up some pretty designs!
Today we're sharing some exciting (belated but exciting) news with you. One of our brides from last Fall is one of four cover brides for Utah Valley Bride Magazine's 2013 issue. A photo from her portrait session landed the cover, and then her wedding in it's entirety is a feature in the magazine. The bride, Evelyn, opted to have not only a bouquet but also a flower crown in her portraits, and let's just toot our own horn here and say it was a thing of beauty. We were so thrilled to see it on the cover!
Without further ado... here's our Blossom Sweet cover bride and her bridal portrait session (we'll share the whole wedding soon!):
flowers used in crown and bouquet: spray roses, lisianthus, waxflower, dusty miller, stock, ranunculus, and queen anne's lace.

One of our July 2012 brides was married at a private chalet at Sundance. It was a blustery, humid, rainy summer day (somewhat rare in Utah!) but cleared up just in time for her lovely early-evening event. This wedding was evidence that investing in beautiful flowers can really transform your event. While the chalet and the scenery were beautiful, it wasn't until the flowers arrived that it really looked like a wedding was about to take place.
The bride was getting ready in a room upstairs, so she and her mother stepped out on the balcony during set up to see the transformation of the space taking place. The mother of the bride said to us, "Oh! This is so gorgeous! It looked so plain and now with the flowers it looks like this wedding should be in Country Living magazine!" Of course we were happy as proverbial clams to hear that! And now, enjoy a few photos from the event.
flowers used in the designs: garden roses, lily grass, silver dollar eucalyptus, veronica, football mums, hydrangea, stock, lisianthus, roses, larkspur, snapdragons, dusty miller, queen anne's lace, freesia, and calla lilies.

Had to say goodbye to our dear family dog today, so I quickly gathered some items from around the yard to create a small tribute for the burial. I won't get into my heartbreak in this post, but I love that this simple piece comes from his stomping grounds, he used to lay beneath the forsythia bushes in the summer. I tied it all together with a flexible branch I found in the garden. I thought it turned out kind of pretty.
Farewell to my friend, Dudley. 2001-2013

Have you noticed a new little treat on the Blossom Sweet Blog? A few days ago we installed a "Pin It" button, meaning that when you hover over an image with your mouse, a heart-shaped "Pin It" button will appear in the center of the image. If you're a Pinner you'll love this, because you simply need to click that heart button on the image you want and it will take you right to Pinterest with the pin ready to go. Enjoy!
For your reference, here's what the button looks like:

We'll start out today's post with a (very belated) photo of the month. This bouquet was one of our favorites from a couple years back and would be a gorgeous accessory for a spring bride (...or summer... or fall for that matter)! We adore the mixture of bold and soft tones, as well as the fluffy textures and pops of gray. When we created this design we called it our "honeycomb bouquet" because for some reason the waxflower reminded us of just that. Cute!
flowers used in bouquet: stock (two varieties), roses, silver brunia, pepper berry, pittosporum, and waxflower. Finished with gray satin ribbon.
Also, we have another wedding coming up this weekend and today you get to enjoy the backstory of the cute bride & groom. We posted a photo of the bride's portrait bouquet a couple of weeks ago, it was the beautiful orange-toned piece with draping andromeda. So lovely. And now, before you read their story of l'amour, go ahead and take a guess as to how long they dated until they bought a ring. Will you be surprised? Well read on and let's see, shall we? :)
