For the past three years now, I have been honored to be a part of Bloom the Workshop, helping other creatives chase their passions and providing lush florals to be photographed in the most picturesque settings. While Ashley and Michaela travel across the country and spread their talents with the world, I usually stay a little closer to home and have participated in their more local workshops. This year, I was a part of their July workshop at the historic Felt Mansion in Holland, Michigan, which is one of my absolute favorite wedding venues.
This year, they let me choose the color palette for my designs and it’s funny how daunting that can actually be when I have no limitations. Usually there’s a client providing me with some sort of parameters that I need to stick within. But with ivory linens and gold rimmed plates the only confirmed details, I was living in an open ended dream. I decided to use smoky purples and aubergine and pair them with an unexpected apricot hue. And we brought on Silver Fox Calligraphy to really bring the designs to life with her graceful gold calligraphy displayed on the most luxurious Froufrou Chic ribbon and her perfect watercolor invitation suite.
We created a table scape, an exquisite ceremony design which was in the middle of their pond (can you really imagine a more romantic place to get married??) and of course a stunning bouquet with flowing ribbons was a must have feature.
