tanisha's bouquet and the inspiration behind it

We mentioned back in August that we had a wedding coming up in which the bride had based her design concept around one of our past wedding bouquets. Tanisha was that bride, and the following two photos were the inspiration behind her design concept:

portrait bouquet inspiration (2009)

wedding day bouquet inspiration (2009)
As we pride ourselves on custom work, we do not duplicate past designs for new clients. However, we are happy to suggest alterations which will make a loved and sought-after design unique to any bride. That was the case with Tanisha, and this was the bouquet we came up with for her wedding day:


As you can see, the bouquets have a very similar look, yet at the same time are rather different in their makeup. Now Tanisha can say that her bouquet was unique to her and her alone!

flowers/elements used in Tanisha's bouquet: stock, callas, china berries, freesia, bells of ireland, lisianthus, cymbidium orchids. finished with peacock feathers, black feathers, black satin ribbon, black pins, and a turquoise wire wrap.

a client's review of blossom sweet

Remember our gorgeous "Sundance Soiree" that we recently blogged about? Well, we were thrilled to receive an email yesterday from that particular bride letting us know she had written an online review about Blossom Sweet which gave an overview of her experience. We love hearing feedback like this from our clients just about as much as we love anything. So without further ado, here's her candid and unaltered review:



..................................................


"After recommendations from my wedding venue of their "approved florists" left me seriously wanting, I did a little research and found Melissa of Blossom Sweet. Boy, am I glad that I did!!!


Throughout the planning process (mind you I was out of state and do not live in Utah), Melissa was always just an email away. Through email and phone conversations I was able to communicate my layperson vision to her, which she in turn took...and ran with.


When we finally did meet in person, she had wonderful resources for me to browse through and help pick exactly what flowers I wanted. Not only did she deliver with beautiful blooms and arrangements, she more than captured the "feeling" that I wanted from my flowers. I had so many compliments on the flowers from guests at our wedding. My wedding planner kept me updated throughout the day, saying how beautiful things were looking...especially the flowers. She was so impressed with Melissa's work that she took her information and told me that she would definitely recommend her to future brides. She also thought that, for what Blossom Sweet delivered, things were fairly priced.


While our flowers were an investment (Melissa freely acknowledges this on her website), they were absolutely worth the splurge. Thank goodness I also had a great photographer to help capture just how beautiful Melissa of Blossom Sweet made our wedding look, because now it is all just a memory...but a really great one thanks in part to her artistry!

Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy life to do that, Lesley! You were a fantastic client and we so enjoyed working with you on your beautiful event. Warm wishes for you in all your newlywed bliss!

sundance soiree = smashing success

A couple of weeks ago we had our biggest event of the summer. It took place up at Sundance Resort, and let us just tell you - it was gorgeous. Gor-geous. And the monster rainstorm/flash-flood even held off until the exact second we finished cleaning up and loading everything that night. Perfect timing!

We should be receiving the professional photos of this event at some point in the future, but for now, please enjoy a few [amateur!] snapshots we got of some of the flowers, just so you can get the general idea. Apologies that we did not have more time to get photos of everything!

We loved this event! Watch for more soon...

so long sweet summer... september's photo of the month

Happy September! Boy oh boy we've been enjoying the cooler temps the past week - have you? But even as we say a fond farewell to the fiery furnace that was this summer's heat, we also must say a bittersweet "au revoir" to an amazing summer filled to the brim with beautiful Blossom Sweet Brides. As you know, summer is the busiest time of year for us, and this summer did not disappoint! We had countless incredible events and look forward to sharing them with you (upon receipt of the photos of course)!

This particular photo captured one of our favorite summer bouquets which has yet to have been shared on the blog. Isn't it a beauty? And trust me, the bride was equally lovely both in style and in spirit.

So now, it's with this latest "photo of the month" that we say, "So long, summer!" Until we meet again...
