broken down bouquet - "warm summer"

Today's wedding is sure to be a vibrant little number! Shades of bright reds, yellows, and oranges complete with finishing accents of turquoise are set to steal the show this evening.

And now, bask in this teensy snippet and sneak peek of the bride's bouquet, followed by our latest Broken Down Bouquet board: "Warm Summer," which showcases the individual elements that are to make this event's so-called vibrancy come to life!

elements used in bouquet:

top row: bells of ireland, carnations, ... , dahlias
middle row: freesia, celosia, calla lilies, ...
bottom row: tulips, craspedia, pin cushion protea, hypericum berries

Have a great weekend, everyone!

pioneers, oh pioneers: an inspiration

Hope you all had a great Pioneer Day Weekend (for those of our readers outside of Utah, July 24th is a big state holiday called "Pioneer Day")!

We've created a lovely little number by way of inspiration boards in honor of the holiday. We love this style! Click on the image to enlarge. Enjoy!

yours truly as captured by darla roze photography

In case you have ever wondered just whose face is behind the scenes of Blossom Sweet, you're about to find out. My friend and local photographer extraordinaire, Darla of Darla Roze Photography, was gracious enough to take some head-shots for me this Spring to use as profile shots for work. Do you know Darla? You should! She's just about the most genuine gal in the world, and her talent is just as authentic as her sincere genuineness.

Anyway, I've had the photos for quite some time, but have been somewhat hesitant in sharing because frankly it feels weird to post photos of myself on the business blog. But, then again, I am the Owner and Head-Designer of said business, and I am so grateful to Darla for these images so I think it's only fair to share.

So now enjoy these photos of me, Melissa Nickle, Owner of Blossom Sweet. Yep, it feels weird even to say it. Ah well.

Photography: Darla Roze Photography
Hair & Makeup: Enizio

I'll end with this last photo which is particularly significant to me because it is me holding the vintage gold brooch which was my Great-Grandmother's, who passed it down to my Grandmother, who passed it down to me. These photos were taken less than a week before my grandmother was set to have a massive cancer surgery, and I wanted to incorporate the brooch in honor of her. And I'm ever so grateful to say that the surgery was a success!

Thank you again, Darla!

spring garden editoral shoot

This post is so long overdue, but we hope you'll think it was worth the wait.

We were asked to be part of the Spring Garden Editorial Shoot put together by Utah Bride Blog earlier this year. We were thrilled when we heard about the concept and the other collaborating vendors and were honored to have been asked to be such an integral part of the design.

While this post shows many of the photos from the shoot, the feature can be seen in it's entirety on our website under the "featured weddings" tab, and can also be seen in a new album on the Blossom Sweet Facebook Page. So if you'd like to see more, that's where to go!

Without further ado, enjoy!
