Before moving to Maui a couple years ago for work, I truly believed that roses should go in everything. My love for them was so strong and I thought that would never change. How could it? Roses come in so many different shapes and sizes, their smell alone captivate me! They can add such a soft and elegant touch to anything!! (OK now I’m getting carried away)… But now. After having spent a good amount of time on Island, I have changed my ways. I believe, ORCHIDS should go in everything. They are truly sensational! They can add so much to a bouquet by simply complementing other spring flowers or really popping and make everything stand out so much more! I just LOVE working with them!! Here are some of my favorites from over the years. Some traditional, cascading, or what I like to call combo’s (a hand-held bouquet that cascades, not a cascading bouquet in a holder).
This is one of may favorite combo’s!!
Here is a good example of mixing all types of flowers together; spring and tropicals with pearl accents.
This is a VERY traditional and simple Phalaenopsis Orchid bouquet in a holder..(Which means there are no stems to wrap with ribbon, its in a plastic holder/piece the bride holds)
This is a very bright and tropical bouquet, round in shape with calla lilies, roses and green cymbidium orchids! Definitely demanding attention!
Another traditional style bouquet, but with a not so traditional flower!
Another great mix of spring and tropical flowers!
Here is another traditional cascade bouquet, but with a very TROPICAL and WILD feel to it. I L-O-V-E IT!!!
And last but not least, a bright tropical bouquet with a simple touch to it. I love these two colors together, they really pop against each other!
I thank God for all these brides! For the opportunity to get really creative and design unique, breathtaking bouquets!!
