This was one of the most unique bridal bouquets of 2012 at Ivy House Weddings, one of Western Garden’s reception centers in Utah. The bride created her bridal bouquet herself of various silk and ribbon flowers!
Weeks in the planning and creating, it is obvious that Kristen has a real talent. She created each individual silk flower from all types of ribbon. The plethora of roses, hydrangeas, gallardias, dahlias, hibiscus, lily of the valley and other beautiful creations adorned this masterpiece. She chose rich earth tones with touches of gold and silver for an elegant spray. When she had created all the pieces, she asked a friend to arrange them into this work of art. I would say this was a huge success and Kristen will be able to enjoy this art work in her home for years to come, a constant reminder of her and Doug’s wedding union and their celebration at Ivy House Weddings, one of Utah wedding reception centers that allow the bride to use her own florist.
The bride’s bouquet was not the only item that set the bride’s style at her wedding celebration. She also chose to use a dear friend to create her wedding cake. Again, it is another unique piece of art, definitely worth noting. A delightful kindred spirit created this 3-tier delicate masterpiece. The bride and Linda have been long time friends, traveling together on many adventures, and sharing church beliefs and interests. The cake consisted of two-tiers on top of four white pillars upon a large round base. The most unique attribute about this cake was the delicate pastel frosting used to decorate. The little pink rose buds with green leaves was indeed very light and airy, giving the cake such a delicate and tender appearance. The artist also included Lilly of the Valley along with a few white pearls to give it just a final little touch of lightness. There was nothing heavy about this gorgeous cake. I have not seen a cake with Lily of the Valley. This was a very unique and soft touch.
We are finding that brides really enjoy wedding reception centers in Utah, like Ivy House Weddings at Western Gardens downtown, that allow them the freedom to choose their own cake designers and florists. It becomes a more unique wedding celebration that reflects more of the bride’s personal style.
