I took 1st Anniversary pictures today for one of my dear friends and we had a ball getting her all fancied up in her wedding dress and fixing her hair. Last night we sat on the floor and talked while I put this bouquet together for her. Originally for her wedding I was going to make her bouquet for her, but all my flowers died and with all the fires I didn't end up going up to her wedding, so it was fun to be able to make this bouquet for her for their 1st Annivesary shoot (and then I got to see her in her wedding dress too)!
I found all my supplies at Hobby Lobby. Mallory told me the colors she wanted, and I spent over an hour wandering through the flowers to find just the right ones. I wanted it to look good and as wild as I could. It took some clipping of stems and swapping of flower heads, but finally I got the arrangement I was hoping for. I wrapped the stems with tons of floral tape and then used wired grape vine (also artificial) to make the hand hold, but to keep the wild look to it. I love how it turned out!
