I always love it when brides say that they want a big bouquet! (Big, full and lush bridal bouquets are my favorite!!)
This bride wanted an all-white bouquet with her two favorite flowers--large calla lilies and peonies and she also wanted to use some tropical leaves, so we used a few aspidistra leaves at the base. We also included some mini callas, freesia and 'Vendela' roses to help blend the callas and peonies.
(This was one of the most fragrant bouquets I've made in the past little while. Love it!)
I am a big fan of using more than one centerpiece design, especially when there are a lot of tables. For this outdoor garden reception, we did half of the tables with tall white calla lilies and curly willow, the other half had curly willow with dendrobium blossoms. Each table also had two square vases with a floating white peony in it. We tied the look together with chocolate brown runners, gray river rocks in the vases and votive candles.
I also loved the bride's bouquet which I posted about previously...can't ever get enough peonies!
