a succulent inspired wedding

a few weeks ago, I headed to Siesta Key, Florida for a wedding between two of my dearest friends.  they share my love of succulents and really wanted to incorporate them into their flowers and invitations.  the bride’s bouquet, by Bloom Garden Shop, included succulents, apricot roses, green amaranthus, star of bethlehem and my favorite, scabiosa pods.  isn’t it stunning?!

for their wedding stationery suite, we went with an illustration of a sempervivum succulent, blind embossed on the invitation and rsvp, then printed in a pale grey on their ceremony programs.  the results turned out beautiful, if I do say so myself, and tied in seamlessly with their flowers.  the design and letterpress was done by me and the gorgeous calligraphy was done by Mara from Neither Snow.

    This is one of the most beautiful bouquets I’ve ever seen – we don’t have many succulents in Bulgaria, but I also love them.

    And the letterpress is lovely – congratulations.
