Wedding Bouquets Inspired by the Sea
Bouquet with Pearly Shells
This petite dome of white and pink picoteed ranunculuses is encircled by a carefree cuff of translucent capiz shells. The silk ribbon plays off the streaks of color in the flowers.
Water Droplet Bouquet
Lilies-of-the-valley evoke water droplets trickling over hydrangea florets, which are plucked from a single bloom and wired to form a loose grouping. The florets' muted green and rosy hues seem softened by the sun. Vintage velvet millinery trim swirls underneath like frothy sea foam.
Bouquet with Coral Details
Refined garden and 'Mystique' roses in white, cream, and peach shades become fanciful with the addition of an unexpected element: dusty miller foliage as intricate as coral. The larger bridal bouquet is laced with curly white nerines and finished with a striped silk bow. A leafy pattern in the silk brocade ribbon of the bridesmaid bouquet emulates the dusty miller.

Cybister amaryllis burst from a cluster of abundant tree peonies that are the lustrous color of seashells. Airy astilbe fringe the edges. Vintage velvet ribbon drapes below the blooms.
Island Escape Bouquet
With a few vibrant splashes of color, a white cascade exudes an exotic splendor. Tropical yellow-and-pink cattelaya orchids punctuate ivory clouds of lisianthius and sweet peas. Lithe gloriosa lilies enliven the bouquet. A silk ribbon trails down a tulle gown by Angel Sanchez.
Eden Blooms Bouquet
Conjuring the beauty of an unspoiled paradise, lavender garden roses mingle with pristine white stephanotis, appearing here with their dark-green leaves. A garland of wired white hyacinth florets rings the prim composition. As a counterpoint, scabiosa seed heads peek out, their purple striations suggesting a prickly texture. Sheer vintage ribbon wraps the stems.
Andromeda Blossoms Bouquet
Andromeda blossoms call to mind beautiful sea plants washed ashore as they spill from this sun-dappled cascade. Their pebbly texture contrasts nicely with plump parrot tulips, ruffly lady's slipper orchids, dainty hyacinth florets, and trumpeted narcissus. Their shape is repeated in the vintage white lace ribbon that envelops the stems.
