Dan found me through my Etsy shop and sent me a message to see if I could help him pull of a most excellent anniversary gift for his wife. He was looking for a silk bridal bouquet recreation with succulents. I took one look at the photos he sent and knew I wanted to take on this beauty!
Here's the original bouquet, photographed by Kristen Holly Carlson. Check out her site here.
Is that not just a gorgeous bouquet? Vibrant colors, interesting texture and composition. And the twine detail on the stems is perfect!
When it came to recreating the bouquet with silk flowers, the pictures were definitely helpful. But the most help came from Dan himself who was able to clarify some questions I had about the center of the Anemones (black or blue?) and the type of ribbon under the twine. He also gave me great feedback on the color of the succulent which I tinted for him to get as close a match as possible. Take a look at the finished product!
Thanks again to Dan for finding me and working so closely with me to get this bouquet looking spot on. If you too want to be a great gift giver and have a few weeks to spare, send me a message to see if your one and only's bouquet can be recreated with designer quality silk wedding flowers with great customer service (if I do say so myself...and I do).
