Burgudy blush and ivory wedding flowers

I loved creating this classic style hand-tied bridal bouquet for Susan.

Dark burgundy and ivory is a tough color palette from a design perspective. It can easily go wrong and look polka dotted. So I love incorporating a touch of blush to bridge the color gap and have a smoother transition.

Susan’s bouquet included dark burgundy baccara roses, black calla lilies, burgundy hypericum berries, italian ruscus foliage, ivory garden roses, blush pink garden spray roses, burgundy anemone and my favorite -blooming jasmine vine.

Kristen and Michael Mt. Hood SkiBowl Wedding by Powers Photography

Peter Chee with Powers Photography did a phenomenal job capturing the wedding photos. Dark color palettes are some of my favorites to work with. However, they tend to be difficult to properly photograph to get the true sense of color and dimension.

Bridal bouquet featured some of my favorite dark blooms, including: dahlias, roses, cymbidium orchids, scabiosa, peonies, ranunculus, carnations and plenty and texture.

Kristen and Michael were truly an adventurous couple and choose to get married at the top of Mt. Hood at Mt. Hood Skibowl.

Can you imagine taking a ski lift and having your first look with a mountain in the background?

Yep! That’s exactly what they did.

Pantone "Marsala" Burgundy-Red color inspiration

When Pantone named "Marsala" as their 2015 color of the year, I was excited to see a bolder color palette. 

I love how Marsala works very well with the blush tones to add that pop of color. 

Here are some designs I created using this color palette. 

Bridal bouquet consisted of the beautiful red piano garden roses, red intuition roses {love their velvety petals with unique markings on them}, chocolate queen annes lace, blackberries, ranunculus, sweet william, leptospermum, gilded agonis, plumosa, maidenhair, pieris and anemone.

I am loving those red piano garden roses and red intuition roses in this mini gold vase arrangement. This would make a perfect accent for a small cocktail/bistro table.
