When Erin told me that she wanted purple flowers for her bridal bouquet, I was ecstatic. I love using bold colors and couldn’t wait to get started. She was also excited to use succulents in her bouquet and I think we found the perfect ones!
Erin’s bridal bouquet was made of lavender roses, purple lisianthus, purple stock, lavender snapdragons, white freesia, Earl Grey roses (yes, grey roses! These are a new favorite of mine!), sage leaves and beautiful silvery-purple succulents. I was able to pick out all of the ribbon detailing for her bouquet at M&J Trimming
in New York City. I used several widths of hand-dyed grey and purple silk, a lavender striped ribbon and finished it with a gorgeous piece of pewter lace. Ladies, don’t be afraid of fun ribbon! Ribbon is the perfect accent to your bouquet! The
Maid’s bouquets were a lighter combination of the same flowers and tied with more purple silk!

I wanted to tie the corsages and boutonnieres in with the bouquets so I used the same succulents to create a floral cuff for the ladies and boutonnieres for the guys! These designs were accented by shades of purple stock, white scabiosa and white freesia.
Morningside Inn is a gorgeous backdrop for a wedding and the pergola that is available for an outside ceremony is just lovely, all by itself. Erin wanted to add a garland of seeded eucalyptus and accent that with the purple tones from the bouquets. I added two shades of purple stock, and lavender snapdragons, as well as lavender and grey roses. I love the way it framed the couple as they said their vows.
One thing that is very evident from seeing Erin and Donald on their wedding day is that they are very much in love. I love the way they look at each other!
What a great way to walk back up the aisle!
A few more pretties…..
