Jennifer Laura Design sure knows how to whip up a romantic bridal bouquet. We saw this one and our hearts were all aflutter for a sec, remembering what it feels like to hold something so lovely on your wedding day. Lucky for you guys, she teamed up with Feather and Twine Photography to share a DIY tutorial for anyone looking to recreate it. Take it away, Jennifer…
It means a lot to me to be able to handcraft the perfect bouquet or centerpiece for my brides. This bouquet was a fun representation of me—a bouquet that I would have at my wedding if I were to reimagine it.
Instructions: These organic bouquets are so fun to create. I typically start them like I would a normal tightly shaped bouquet, but instead of that perfect shape I move the blooms up and down to create depth as I build. The shape is going to be the same as a round bouquet (with that added depth), and then at the very end I add that organic shape by pulling in some greenery, like the maiden hair fern we used here. I wrapped everything up with floral tape to keep it secure and then finished it off with a mix of black and white velvet ribbons. Velvet immediately made this very fun and playful bouquet look very luxe, which is always a nice touch to add… on top of the whimsy of course.

Rock Paper Square says, The inspiration behind this shoot was to combine our love of home decor with our love of weddings! We love the idea of having your home decor double as wedding décor.

The inspiration for this shoot from Lauren Scotti and Couture Events centers around this idea that beauty can be created from unlikely pairings. (Opposites attract, eh?) It’s dark and moody meets fresh and springy; industrial meets elegant. Lauren Scotti says, We found the ‘industrial’ in the exposed brick, cement floor, and that small sparkle in the air that tells you this space holds years and years of stories. We incorporated the perfect touch of ‘elegance’ with pieces like a vintage couch, wandering florals, a backless gown, soft shadows, and a couple so fiercely in love.
