This month’s featured DIY bride and winner of a $100 American Express Gift Card is Rachael. Her rustic, vintage-themed wedding was absolutely gorgeous – and the flowers are simply stunning! All of these beautiful moments were captured by Marcus Bierbaum Photography. Check out the full photo spread here!
“…I would like you know that the flowers that we received were perfect! …The instructions were very clear and we were able to make amazing bouquets for my bridal party. They were also a blast to make!” ~ Rachael, DIY bride
Rachael’s bouquets included several types of garden roses. The Garden Rose Miranda is a pink rose with frilled inner petals. As a large, fluffy rose, it works wonderfully in bouquets. Garden Rose O’Hara Light Pink is the paler pink rose, which adds romantic yet sophisticated texture. The Garden Rose O’Hara White is a classic white garden rose with a large, elegant bloom.
Rachael used Eskimo White and Versilia Peach roses to accentuate the main garden roses and to add color. As filler flowers, the bouquets include white lisianthus, white hydrangea to make up a beautiful variety. Dianthus, green hypericum and lotus pods (purchase these at your local craft store) add a touch of whimsy.
To add to the rustic feel, the bouquets were wrapped in burlap ribbon. Rachael added a touch of silky white ribbon to her own.
Did we mention they got married in a barn?! The couple actually restored the floors, built stairs and cleaned out the hay themselves!
