From Sofia Ferreira, Brancoprata... We strongly believe that each bouquet has to be unique, and a true reflection of the bride's personality! No two women are alike, so why should we design two similar bouquets? That's why it's so important for us to built a relationship with our brides before they tie the knot! To get to know what they love, what makes their heart beat faster, what are their expectations for the wedding day! It's such a fun way to connect with them, get to know them, so when we design their wedding, we actually know the person, not just the client!
Our process is quite simple, we always ask our brides to chose some inspirational words and images, we then start to focus on the color palette and the importance of different textures and sizes! We don't like to do small bouquets, it's like when we are making them, they have a life of their own, they are in total control, that's why we love to do them so much! At the same time we feel our brides trust us and our own vision, 100%... 200% actually, and until this day, all of our bouquets were a complete success!
To work with Jennifer (this particular bride) and to design the bouquet was a great experience, she has exquisite taste, and she was very specific about her inspiration for her wedding day! The fact that she designed all the stationery and paper details, help us in a early stage, to get to a color scheme and even a mood board for the entire wedding inspiration. According to the bride, one of the must haves was olive foliage, that we forage in a nearby field, and since it was a hot Summer day, before their portrait session, we changed the Cafe au Lait Dahlias that were already wilted. This way the entire bouquet looked fresh and ready to be photographed, after one of the most hottest days of the year! This is without a doubt, one of our favorite bouquets from 2015.
