Lavender Big Island Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Today’s wedding just happens to be one of those that feels so relaxed, you just wish you had been there to share in such a special day. Kylie Martin Photography and Bliss in Bloom took the reins on Natalie and Dylane’s wedding day, capturing beautiful scenes in various shades of purple and lush arrangements filled to the brim with roses.

From the bride, Natalie: I really just wanted the wedding to feel elegant and whimsical, Hawaii is so beautiful it wasn’t hard to make that happen! Purple is my favorite color so it was pretty easy to pick the color scheme for the wedding. We went with lots of different shades of purples, some blues, and white accents. When I saw how all the colors came together I was beyond amazed at how well they complimented each other.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My advice to couples that are planning their wedding now is to remember to take in the experience. Always think about what truly matters, don’t sweat the small things, and over all just relax and how fun!

Garden Bride Flower Guide

When expert floral designer Jillian of Mimi Nicole Events combines forces with Catherine Mead Photography, it’s no surprise that the result is this gorgeous exposition of a fluffy pink and ivory floral arrangement. The pop of hot pink ranunculus is just enough to modernize this take on a classic feminine bouquet – also perfect for Mother’s Day!

From Jillian of Mimi Nicole Events: For this arrangement, I envisioned a very classic and sweet bride and groom who wanted an elegant, garden wedding. They would bring in family heirlooms {like the silver pedestal bowl we used} to use as decor and, of course, the bride’s favorite, yummy-smelling flower Hyacinth would be included in the arrangement. I love the mix of pale pinks, creams, and whites with a fun pop of hot pink from the ranunculus — perfect for a sweet, fun couple!

I bought about $130 worth of flowers to create this arrangement, plus the bouquet with plenty of leftovers. The most expensive of the bunch were the ranunculus. If you’re wanting a similar look, but without the higher price tag you can always ask your florist to sub in a more inexpensive variety of flower. So, maybe instead of ranunculus you might add in a hot pink carnation for that fun, pop of color or instead of the pale pink roses you might consider adding in more hydrangea {a very cost friendly flower}, but in the same pale pink as the roses. When in doubt, ask your florist–they’ll know the perfect substitution!

Strawberries and Gingham Bouquet Inspiration

Wedding Design

Spring is a season that just begs to see bright and fun fabrics, so we were understandably excited to see this cheery gingham bouquet inspiration created by Karin Woodward of Haute Horticulture and shot by Annabella Charles Photography. We’re particularly fond of the hodgepodge of different flowers in varying shades of pink, and not to mention that scrumptious-looking strawberry and whipped cream cake!

Bride’s Bouquet:
All of the above flowers:
Pink: Hydrangea, Sweet Pea, Tulips, Waxflower, Hyacinth, and includes extra Green Hellebore, Pink Jasmine Vine, Double Knock Out Roses (from my garden) in hot pink, and Honeysuckle vine.

From the event stylist, Karin of Haute Horticulture: We took 5 “bridesmaid’s” bouquets different flowers… same colors. We then recycled them and made the “bridal” bouquet. We took Pink Gingham fabric from the local fabric store and tied a giant bow around the bouquet instead of ribbon. The fabric actually holds a big bow much better than ribbon and is super cute. We then made a cute summertime cake with whipped cream and strawberries instead of icing.
