Nautical Wedding Inspiration Shoot- Utah Wedding Florist

As promised, here is the full feature of our Nautical Wedding Inspiration. 

This is my favorite photo from the whole shoot. Danielle's beauty is astounding. 

The centerpiece was constructed out of drift wood that was placed on a tall glass vase and adorned with  florals like pin cushions, phalanopsis orchids, sea star fern, tulips ranunculus, scabiosa, pieris, scabiosa pods, hydrangea, roses and amaranthus. 

Swoon! This bouquet melts my heart. I placed a variety of textures together to balance a feeling of movement and sophistication. The textures of the succulents and pincushions mirror creatures from the sea but are still classy.

One of my favorite elements from the day was our map table-covering. We found this unique wrapping paper online and used it to cover our table instead of an actual linen.

Metallic Winter Wedding-Utah Wedding Florist

As you may remember a few weeks back, Branches participated in the winter inspiration shoot put on  by Utah Bride Blog. We partnered with a line-up of phenomenal vendors including Mara Harwood of Events by LMG, Layers cake and Hair and Make-up by Steph, to bring you this Park City Chic wedding inspiration.  St Regis was host to this beautiful soiree. It was the perfect setting for a winter dream wedding.
I was given the task of bringing a lush and romantic feel to the florals which would be complimented by a palate of mixed metals. I completely adore how everything turned out!!! 

The bridal bouquet was lush, muted and glorious! We wanted to incorporate metallics into the bouquet, so we used silver dusty miller and airbrushed seeded euc accents tucked between a bed of garden roses, sahara roses, freesia, anemones and lisianthus.

Can we talk about this hello! Julie with Layers Cake is a culinary genius! 

We love how Megan of Pink Piggy Designs incorporated antlers into the paper suites, so as to tie in the lodge feel of St. Regis. 

The centerpiece designs were nothing short of stately and romantic. We chose tapered vases which held  bountiful hydrangea, roses, mums, dusty miller, seeded euc, tulips, callas and hanging amaranthus. Swoon!!!

I LOVE photos of the groom holding the bouquet. It makes my heart sing. Also doesnt hurt that he is also beautiful himself.
