Green – as it is the leading color of all things floral (and evermore present in light of the growing environmentalism trend) – inspires us on a daily basis. So, when Bridal Guide magazine asked us last summer to design a bold, single-hue bouquet around a color of our choice we knew immediately that it would be the color GREEN.Our inspiration for this particular combination arose from the local landscape on Long Island last summer where we were able to pick fresh sedum and succulents. Green applied to our love of adding fresh herbs (like mint) to arrangements for bolder color, texture and fragrance. We mixed the structured succulents with the more organic shapes found in the antique green hydrangea, garden roses, parrot tulips and variegated leaves.Finally, we hand-wrapped natural cord around the stems to complete the look – perfect for a city bride at her garden wedding. Not only were we were lucky to contribute flowers to our go-to bridal magazine, our verdant bouquet landed on the cover page of the spread. Check it out in the current issue of Bridal Guide (January/February 2011) for a closer look!
