Pop Up Bridal

I recently did floral arrangements for BHLDN's bridal pop-up shop in San Francisco, and wanted to share some snaps that NRUPhoto took of the event. They wanted some soft hues, so I decided that one could almost never go wrong with blush and its variants. I know some of you are going to want to know what those pink bubble gum looking berries are!! They are berries that I foraged from a very awesome bush (the only one I've found) that I found in San Francisco and they are called Pernettya - I absolutely loved working with them!

Autumn Wedding

Autumn weddings are some of my favorite, as I love the opportunity for some of the rust and gold-colored palettes that come with the season. This wedding in San Francisco was no exception, and I was able to take advantage of some lovely amaryllis and golden persimmons in conjunction with rose, tuberose, and eucalyptus. Not only were the colors out of this world, but the smell floating through the wedding reception was heavenly. And the icing on the cake was the kind and lovely "thank you" e-mail I received from a very happy bride the following Monday! Flowers: amaryllis, rose, tweedia, tuberose, privet, persimmon, pomegranate, ranunculus, eucalyptus, nigella, nerine lily, cyrtanthus Autumn Wedding / Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com | Photography: Nathan Underwood / nruphoto.com

Colors of Colina: Mint + Peach

Mint and peach - I just love this color combination. As you might have read in my first Colors of Colina entry, I tell Colina the overall color theme of the bouquet that I'm going to make, and she wears something complementary. I quite like how lovely this color pairing turned out - soft and beautiful. There is simply so much room to let your imagination and creativity explode when you choose color as the theme for your project. The possibilities are almost endless, and you can find a unique element to incorporate every time. For me, the unique element(s) of this bouquet are many, but if I had to pick just one it would be the dates. I love the yellow color tone and I think it ties together the whole bouquet in conjunction with Colina's mint-colored dress.

When I make a bouquet I want to "wow" people with it, so I always strive to use unique combinations of flowers and foliage that I think stand out from the "everyday" bouquet.

This knit-covered pole was such an awesome surprise, and it matched Colina's dress perfectly - whoever made that colorful cover was quite retro and we thank them! Colors of Colina: Mint + Peach / Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com | Photography: Nathan Underwood / nruphoto.com
