A few months back, I got an email from Katie, style director over at Martha Stewart Weddings. They were putting together a feature on hand made wedding elements, and she asked me if I would want to contribute to it. Of course, I jumped at the chance. I've been a fan of the magazine since day one, and I have bought literally every single issue. To be asked to be a part of it all was such a huge thrill, an honor and a complete dream come true.
After a few emails and phone calls, we figured out the color direction for the bouquet I would be making. I went shopping for ribbon, fabric and paper in whites, creams, and yellow tones, then shared my samples with Katie
Next, I did a little experimenting with some new flower ideas. I worked with linens and cottons, both patterned and plain. I also worked with crepe paper.
I made hundreds of fabric and paper leaves and petals. The flowers were constructed and arranged into a bouquet. The bouquet was carefully packed, then shipped of to New York for the photo shoot.
The issue hits the stands today. You'll find my bouquet on page 138.
A coordinating boutonniere is also featured in "A Note From Darcy" on page 20.
A huge thanks to Katie, Shira and all the fine folks at MS Weddings who made my dream a reality.
