From Cori Cook
…. We wanted this bouquet to be lively and colorful and bold, because that is our signature design style. As floral designers, whenever we participate in a inspiration shoot, it’s always important to be designing the kind of bouquets that we would want our clients to be inspired by and request for their own wedding. We have realized over the years that while we appreciate a muted color palette, that our signature style isn’t moody and it isn’t muted. We love working with complex color palettes and bold colors. We also love to design bouquets that are more one-sided than round. They tend to photograph better and we’ve found that there is more of an opportunity to be creative with shape and texture. But word to the wise if you design bouquets that are one-sided: Keep that back pretty too and give bride and bridesmaids a quick pep talk about how to hold them for photos!
