From Jen: “We are always inspired by art, and this fun bridal shoot is utter romance – evoking the long lashed beauties of the Victorian era. We were lucky to have gorgeous sunlight all afternoon, and the backdrop of the ladies pavilion in Central Park was absolutely perfect.”

“Juliet [the model] wore a crown of flowers by Poppies & Posies, and carried an overflowing bouquet of peonies, apple blossoms, sweet pea, ranunculus and ferns, also by Poppies & Posies. With romance, there’s no such thing as over-the-top!”

Nearly Newlywed‘s ruffled gown offered the perfect amount of texture, echoed in the bride’s tastefully crimped updo.”

With my due date just around the corner, Ryan and I are trying to really take advantage of the time we have left with just the two of us. Nothing particularly fancy, just spending as much time together as we can before baby arrives. That and figuring out how to install the carseat.

Ever since I started Weekend Links, Fridays have been a day for me to share things that aren’t necessarily wedding related, but that I find inspiring and think you’ll enjoy, too. Or sometimes things that are a bit more personal. And though weddings will always be the heart of Snippet & Ink, now that we have a baby joining the family I thought it would be fun to make a little room here for life beyond the wedding day. So, in addition to a Happy Weekend post, Fridays will sometimes include a little something extra, starting with this inspiration board I created for Little Miss Grady’s nursery…

When decorating a room, I tend to go piece by piece, picking up things that stand out to me and as our budget allows. But with the nursery, I wanted to have something resembling a finished room by the time little girl arrived, and it was surprisingly difficult to find what I was looking for in coral! So, the actual direction of the nursery has changed a bit, with more pale pink and gray, but I still love the feel of this inspiration board and could see the room eventually growing into it.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know what a sucker I am for beautiful flowers – I just can’t get enough of them! Today, Heather Williams from Twig & Twine and Heather Johnson Mullin from Adelphi Productions are here to share three beautiful bouquets with us, each one designed with a particular bride in mind…

The Romantic Bride

This sweet and peachy bouquet includes ranunculus, garden roses, honeysuckle, and oregano, tied with three types of ribbon.

Says Heather, “In a soft palette of ivory, butter yellow, peach and light orange, this lush, round bouquet speaks of Spring. Loose honeysuckle gives it a slightly asymmetrical aspect, ranunculus and garden roses form a large cluster of gorgeous blooms, while decorative oregano adds a garden touch to soften things up.”

 

The Earthy Bride

This loose, textured cascade includes anemones, ranunculus, sweet peas, scabiosa flowers, garden roses, peonies, decorative artichoke, thistle, veronica, spirea, and geranium.

“For this cascading bouquet, I imagined the bride walking down the aisle cradling it in one arm rather than holding it with two hands. Instead of large blooms, I used decorative artichokes as a main focal point to keep things interesting, and the result is a rustic picked-from-the-garden look without feeling too wild. The bouquet is finished with various loose ribbons and a soft ivory lace.”

 

The Bold Bride

This uniquely spirited bouquet includes peonies, ranunculus, garden roses, hellebores, lilac, an air plant, and umbrella fern.

“This is definitely the outspoken bouquet of the bunch! She is bright, bold and unusual. A large air plant offsets the coral peonies, fuchsia garden roses and lush dark lilac. Umbrella fern accents the edges and creates a frame. This bouquet definitely isn’t for a bride looking to blend in. It’s still feminine, but the mix of lush blooms along with non-typical greenery makes for a nice contrast.”

So which type of bride are you? I’d say I’m a “Romantic” but there are things I really love about all three of these looks.

 

Thanks to Christina McNeill for sharing photos of these beautiful bouquets with us!
