J. and L. didn’t need much for their winter wedding, just boutonniere’s for the ‘gents and wrist corsages for the Mom’s. Bride L. had planned on using a all- ribbon flower bouquet made with love by a bridesmaid and didn’t need a bouquet. Wedding planner extraordinaire Lauren Housley of Ryan Alexander Events had a different vision. Knowing how special it is to have a bouquet on your wedding day to make you feel extra beautiful and radiant, she hatched a plan with Groom J.- Pockets Filled With Posies would create a bouquet incorporating a ribbon flower and J. would surprise L. with it, along with a note explaining just how special L. was to him on the morning of the wedding! SO SWEET!
We used white and ivory vendela, garden and spray roses, ranunculus, dusty miller and silver brunia to create a romantic and chic feel for the J. and L.’s special day- and I was told there were tears when L. read the note and saw the bouquet!

Despite the poor quality of the photo- you can still see the silk ribbon flower attached to the bouquet’s handle- giving the bouquet that final personal touch!
B. approached Pockets Filled with Posies to help her shower her niece with love at her “Bridal Shower Tea.” The colors chosen were pinks and apple green. The shower was held in the party room of a condo in the heart of the Goldcoast with amazing views of the city and lake.
B. was interested in a soft, feminine, classic and vintage vibe, and was planning on using a family heirloom silver tea set as a showpiece for the celebration. Once A. and P. heard the words vintage and feminine- they knew immediately what they would use- their vintage milk glass collection!
Moss, pink and white garden roses, pink spray roses, seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, belles of ireland, white dhalia’s, pink rennaculas and green hypericum berries were chosen to create a 5 bud vase cluster on each table as well as a cluster for the serving table and a couple extra arrangement that were scattered around the room (and yes, we STILL had milk glass left over! We. Love. It.)
Special thanks to Maureen West of Maureen West Catering for introducing B. to Pockets Filled With Posies!
