Classic, timeless beauty. I love the rich boldness of the color red. It is definitely a statement color. Red roses are symbolic of deep love and affection. What is more romantic than that?! Jessica Watson Photography captured the essence of this.

This enchanting styled shoot captures a soft, romantic, vintage feel. The dreamy blush lace wedding gown designed by Modern Trousseau is perfection. Blush is still very on trend this season. Wearing a gorgeous blush gown like this one is a fun way to incorporate the color in your wedding while still being able to have bright beautiful flowers.

Delaware Floral Designer: Christmas Tree Dress

As a floral designer, I have been dying to create a Christmas tree wedding gown!  This year I have been working with my friends at Jennifer’s Bridal to create beautiful arrangements for their trunk shows.  While I was talking to Amy one day, we discussed displaying the Christmas tree dress on one of their mannequins in their main window.

Now I get to share the gorgeous holiday display with all of you. I loved designing this floral display with locally grown branches from Christmas trees in Pennsylvania.  Let me know what you think.

Christmas Tree Dress (1)I decided to go with a high-low skirt created out of different varieties of pine and fir branches.  The base dress is a stunning short, lace wedding dress by Pronovias.  I think that it created the perfect bodice for this dress form Christmas tree.

Christmas Tree Dress (6)To finish off the dress, I wrapped a fun red plaid ribbon around the waist of the mannequin and added a few trailing snowflakes.  Isn’t this a fun idea for your winter wedding?!

If you’re in the Hockessin area or are shopping for your wedding gown, stop by Jennifer’s Bridal and check out this gown and all the other lovely bridal gowns.

The holiday season is the most popular time for engagements.  So, if you are newly engaged, don’t forget about Floral Designs by Jessi for all your wedding flower needs.  Contact me today to schedule your consultation.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! 

New Jersey Wedding Florist: Impromptu Photo Shoot with Laura in NYC

Recently, my husband and I visited his sister and her fiancé in New York City.  With all of the gorgeous flowers for sale on the sidewalks, I just had to buy some and make a bouquet.

We stopped at The Trailer Park Lounge for drinks and food.  What better place to create the bouquet?!  People probably thought that I was crazy.  I love the vibrant colors of the ranunculus, mums, and freesia.  I am so happy that Laura agreed to model for me.  We had a great time finding random places in NYC to take pictures.  Plus, Scott is a great assistant, especially when he demonstrates how to pose!  LOL  Unfortunately, he will not allow me to pot the pictures of him.

After spending at beautiful day in New York City, we went to a cherry blossom festival in New Jersey outside of Montclair.  So, this turned into a two-day shoot!  Hope you enjoyed these pictures as much as me!

Delaware Wedding Florist: Floral Stylized Photo Shoot with Meghan

I was beyond excited when Meghan volunteered to wear her wedding dress for a floral stylized photo shoot. She was originally one of my gorgeous brides!  Her wedding was full of purple and bling.  And I brought the sparkle!

I knew the perfect location for this shoot… the swinging bridge in Brandywine Park! And I automatically wanted to go with a formal black, white, and red color palette. I’ve been dreaming about creating a luscious duchess rose bridal bouquet. This was the perfect opportunity. Who says dreams don’t always come true?!

I went with red roses to had that dramatic flare.  The duchess rose is constructed out of the petals of approximately two dozen roses. There is nothing like it. I think that it adds a powerful feeling to any wedding. To add drama, I created a ruffle effect with black ribbon and trailed the black ribbon from the handle of the bouquet.  Long trailing ribbons are on trend for this wedding season.

Can you see yourself with a duchess rose bridal bouquet and your bridesmaids with round bouquets with red roses?! Can we say gorgeousness?! It’s definitely an impact statement.

What do you think about the style of this shoot?  What are you inspired by?  Do you have any suggestions for future floral stylized photo shoots?  I would love to hear from you!

Delaware Wedding Florist: Floral Stylized Photo Shoot with Cate

I decided to share the pictures from my pin-up inspired floral stylized photo shoot with Cate from last Spring, because I am happy to announce that Cate just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Parker Rose!!!

We had a little bit of drizzly rain during this shoot, but we were troopers.  I love the feel of this shoot, especially with the 1940 Ford Convertible!  If you don’t know me personally, then you may not know that my family is obsessed with hot rod cars.  This car is my uncle’s who let me borrow it for the day.  I am very fortunate!

I wanted to keep a retro All-American theme with red, white, and blue.  The bouquet is designed with lush white peonies, delicate blue delphinium, and bright red hypericum berries and accented with a red bandana.

What do you think about the style of this shoot?  What are you inspired by?  Do you have any suggestions for future floral stylized photo shoots?  I would love to hear from you!

I hope that these pictures inspire you for your wedding day.  Contact me to schedule your own bridal consultation.
