WHERE: St. Michael's Church, Convent & Cashio's 360 Catering, Gonzales

THEME: Louisiana swamp meets modern bride

{THE BRIDE}

Emily's vision to use unusual textures like succulents, moss and pods was nothing short of stunning!

The bride's bouquet featured succulents, scabiosa pods, kale, eucalyptus, dusty miller and few ivory spray roses, freesia and baby's breath sprinkled in to add a touch of softness.

The bridesmaids neutral blush dresses were a perfect background for the green bouquets to stand out!

The green trick added that mossy texture to the bridemaids' bouquets along with a little deer moss. These gals look like they were just plucked from the Louisiana swamp!

Q & A from the BRIDE {Emily}:

1. What was your overall wedding style/theme?

I did not really have a theme for my wedding; I kind of picked a color palette and went with it; I wanted a combination of traditional and modern concepts; ex: my dress had long sleeves and my guys wore black tuxedos, but my bridesmaids dresses and flowers I thought were a more modern or unique concept.

2. How did you choose your wedding color palette?

I browsed pinterest A LOT! Since it was a spring wedding, I knew I couldn't do any really bold colors. I also did not want to choose a color like blush which I feel like a lot of people do; my color palette was basically gold and the color of my bridesmaid dresses which was Vintage Iris. It is kind of like a mauve or dusty rose. I added hints of greenery in there as well to tie in my flowers. 

3. What inspired your wedding floral style? (i.e. pinterest, a friend, our social media, etc.)

Again, I browsed pinterest a lot. I always thought I wanted a big bouquet of peonies or roses, but when I saw these bouquets of mostly greenery and no flowers at all I loved it! Since I did not have a clear theme or color palette really, I didn't have to worry about making sure things coordinated or matched because it was 90% greenery.  

4. What was your favorite part about your wedding day flowers?

I loved my wedding bouquet! It was perfect for a spring wedding! I loved how different it was from other weddings I had been to. I also loved my boutonnieres! We were able to include the fishing lures as a nod to my husband. For my dad's he had a gum ball (from a gum tree) which I thought was super cool and unique.
