Ice Blue Winter Wedding | Peonies & Orchids

Here in Minnesota, we got a beautiful snowy weekend.  It was picture perfect and great for building snowmen!  I thought it would be fitting to showcase a wedding of all white flowers, to match the beautiful snow outside my window!

Late this past summer I had a consultation with bride Melissa, her mother, and her mother-in-law.  We came up with some lovely designs, despite the warm temps, for her December wedding.  Her color was ice blue and she wanted to incorporate the color in her arrangements in some form or another.  When you have a unique color that is not easily found in nature, then you have to get creative in trying to figure out how to include it in the arrangements.  Once again, we turn to the ever dazzling, ever popular, and ever awesome bling!

I found some beautiful ice blue rhinestone clusters to spread throughout the bouquets and they were perfect for getting that hint of color without going overboard.  The bridal bouquet was a beautiful white creation with peonies, roses, and orchids.  We added on a family heirloom broach and encircled it with a soft ring of Dusty Miller.  It was stunning!  But you can see for yourself...
