Gorgeous Mock- Up Bridal Bouquet

mock up bridal bouquet by Amaranth Florist

Now, generally pinks aren’t really my favorite shades (I skew much more towards jewel tones or dark, fall things) but I LOVE this bouquet that I got to mock up for a bride this afternoon. So much so that I just had to share!

This wedding bouquet has light pink Anna roses, lavender dianthus, pink larkspur, delphinium, dusty miller, pale peach carnations, ENORMOUS peach ranunculus (I wish I knew which variety, these are gorgeous!), seeded eucalyptus, and a large pink-tinted echeveria succulent.

The Tribute House is one of our favorite venues for weddings; from it’s history and architecture to it’s recently remodeled landscaping, it’s an all-over beautiful place.

June 2015 at The Old Mill in Rose Valley, Pa

Julia and Sam at the beginning of June at the Old Mill in Rose Valley, Pa.
All of the details and touches Julia chose for the wedding flowers went perfectly together and worked so well at the Old Mill, Rose Valley, PA. Her wedding bouquet was a mix of yellow, blue, lavender and pale pink garden flowers arranged in a more natural style that is a specialty of Amaranth Florist. Some of the flowers used were delphinium, craspedia, lavender and pink stock, blush peonies, blue irises, pink larkspur, thistle, yellow zinnias, cornflower and ladies mantle. Her bridesmaids had similar bouquets with more vibrant colors, such as fuschia peonies, pink calla lilies, solidago, yarrow, green hydrangea, purple stock, cornflower, thistle, and craspedia.

The wedding centerpieces were a natural style in wooden boxes Julia provided. Most of the flowers used, such as the queen anne’s lace and dusty miller, had drape to them to give the centerpieces a flowing, window-box look. The other flowers used were gerbera daisies in various shades, fuschia stock, pink snapdragons, cornflower, thistle, irises, larkspur, and peonies. None of the centerpieces were exactly the same so they were very fun to design!

Additionally, special shout out to that cake. Oh man that cake. That is the most delicious-looking cake I have seen in a while, and I’ve seen lots of them! The style is perfect for the location, and those sliced figs and mixed berries? Yes please! Now, who wants cake?

Merion Tribute House, August 2014

Valerie and Trevor were married in August of 2014 at the Merion Tribute House. I knew as soon as I read over her floral proposal I was going to love making these bouquets (remember my undying love of texture?). Valerie actually brought in some of the greenery used in the bouquets from her back yard, it couldn’t have matched her color scheme any better! The elegant garden-look worked so well with the Merion Tribute House’s atmosphere.

The bridal bouquet had two varieties of white dahlias (one just white and one with yellowish centers), creme roses with pale yellow centers, white ranunculus, pale yellow hypericum berries, grey brunia berries, dusty miller, and seeded eucalyptus. The bridesmaids were very similar to the bride, just without the dahlias and the addition of scabiosa pods. I loved the way the bridesmaids bouquets looked against their slate dresses, the dusty greenery looked perfect!

There are a ton more photos from Valerie and Trevor’s wedding over on our facebook page, be sure to check them out!

The Old Mill, August 2014

Old Mill Pink and White Rose Bouquet

Ah, another Old Mill wedding in the Rose Valley, PA. It’s really the perfect venue for pretty much any wedding, but works especially well with rustic ones. Michelle and Bryan were married last August, and their wedding fit the Old Mill so well. They had some inclement weather forcing their ceremony inside, but you’d never know it was raining from the photos!

Michelle’s bouquets were beautiful. Some of my favorites that I’ve done to date, actually. Her bouquet had lots of coral spray roses, white lisianthus, white dahlias, white spray roses, green hypericum berries, mini green succulents, dusty miller, and hanging amaranthus (our namesake!) . As you may have gathered from previous posts, I’m a sucker for texture and this certainly had it! Michelle’s maids had more color to them with deep pink and coral spray roses, peach stock, peach berries, and dusty green succulents. Their bouquets really complimented their coral dresses wonderfully.

For the centerpieces, Michelle had gathered and decorated lots of assorted bottles to be filled with flowers in her color scheme. The tables had beds of green moss as well as vintage books to compliment the assortment of bottles. It looked really great! This is the second wedding I’ve done with books as accents, and I really love it.

Head on over to our Facebook page for some more photos from Michelle and Bryan’s wedding, as well as many others!

The Please Touch Museum, March 2013


Another blast from the past! Suzanne and Kirk were married a while ago now in March of 2013 at the Please Touch Museum. I cannot stress enough how much fun the Please Touch is for a wedding venue! Suzanne managed to get it during their Alice in Wonderland exhibit which was fantastic. There are so many spots for some really unique photos and a carousel to ride (and have your ceremony in front of!).

Suzanne’s flowers were all about color, texture, and uniqueness. For her and her maids, Suzanne had gathered tons of broaches to have made into bouquets. The variety of textures, colors, and styles really worked together for a very eclectic look. The boutonnieres were bright orange freesia with seeded eucalyptus for texture and bright blue ribbon around the stems.

The centerpieces matched the boutonnieres in shades of orange and bright blue. Rather than the standard green leaf lining the glass vase, we used blue ribbon (again matching with the boutonnieres) to bring even more color to the centerpieces. The centerpiece flowers were orange gerbera daisies, blue irises, orange pincushion protea (texture!), orange cymbidium orchids, orange lilies, Santana roses (one of my favorites) and blue agapanthus.

This wedding was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed doing something a little different for the bouquets, hopefully this trend continues!

Check out our facebook page for some more unusual bouquets, like the button bouquet and the vegetable bouquet!

Pomme Restaurant, April 2014

Megan and Erik were married almost a year ago at Pomme Restaurant in Radnor, Pa. Her flowers were simple and had a rustic, garden-like feel to them which fit quite well with the atmosphere of the restaurant.

Her bouquet was all soft colors with white hydrangea, peach spray roses, cream garden roses with pale yellow centers, pale pink peonies, and white ranunculus. Megan’s bridesmaids had simple bouquets of all white hydrangea with the stems wrapped in twine.

For her centerpieces, Megan wanted multiple smaller arrangements rather than one large arrangement, which I think looks great on those long tables. Each one was a little different. Some had just hydrangea, some had just roses, and some had a mixture of the two, but all of them were in terra cotta pots and accompanied by a few votives in mercury glass.

As always, head on over to our facebook page for more weddings!

Manayunk Brewery, August 2014

Grace and Joseph were married last August at the River Club – Manayunk Brewery and Restaurant. This was my first time working at this venue, and I can’t wait to do another event there! It’s really quite a fun and modern place to have a wedding.

Grace’s bouquets featured tons of texture, which I love. Hers had enormous white garden roses, white lisianthus, peach hypericum berries, white lysimachia, seeded eucalyptus, mint, and dusty green succulents. Her maids all had similarly textured bouquets with ivory roses, yellow center garden roses, peach roses, peach stock, peach hypericum, mint, and seeded eucalyptus. The two little flower girls carried adorable yet simple pomanders that matched the bridesmaids.

The centerpieces also focused on texture, and let the venue take center stage. They were elevated on thin, silver pedestals and featured a wide array of greenery such as myrtle, lemon leaf, seeded eucalyptus and a few others. For the head table, Grace just wanted to use the bouquets. With bouquets as lovely as those, why not!

Head on over to our Facebook page for a few more shots from Grace’s wedding!

Phoenixville Foundry, August 2013

Lauren and Tim were married in August at the Phoenixville Foundry, PA. They had wonderful end-of-summer weather which made for some beautiful outdoor photos at the Valley Forge National Historical Park. The bright colors Lauren chose worked so well together–her centerpieces popped perfectly against the blue of the tablecloths. Coral and blue is quickly becoming a new favorite combination of mine!

The bridesmaids’ coral dresses were a great backdrop for their bouquets of gerbera daisies in shades of watermelon and hot pink as well as ivory roses. Lauren’s all-white bridal bouquet had hydrangea and fragrant garden roses.

Allison and Nick were married in November at the Old Mill in Rose Valley. This was the perfect setting for their wedding! All of the charming details Allison incorporated fit so well with the atmosphere of the Mill. The little table used to hold the programs is one of my favorite details, and the color matches the bridesmaids’ dresses so well. 

Allison’s bouquet was wonderfully textured, and the colors she chose went perfectly together. She had coral roses, lavender Cool Water roses, peach garden roses, white ranunculus, white waxflower, light pink spray roses, grey brunia berries, seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, succulents, and white feathers. The handle of her bouquet was wrapped in fabric from her dress and topped with a broach she provided.
