Purple & Cranberry Dreams

Carla McDonald (Friend) AKRON, OH
It was a brisk Fall day in northeast Ohio. The church was set, the lovely bride was ready to marry her deserving groom. It was a simple wedding, a laid back girl from Ohio marrying a minister from Texas. The wedding was planned and executed in about 6 months. Not ones to be flamboyant, the bride requested simple yet elegant white roses for her bridal bouquet and dark burgundy and purples for her bridesmaids. The groom wore a single white rose with Bicolor Alstromeria, with the groomsmen wearing unique Burgundy Moonlight carnation boutonnieres. did an excellent job at providing my own wedding flowers back when I was married in 2008 - so when she reached out to my sister ... and me to ask for assistance in completing her dream ceremony we knew exactly where to go. The local florists offerings lacked originality and depth, so for the same price we were able to provide the bride and groom with lush, full bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, pew arrangements, and even had extras for flower girl petals and small bouquets around the church--as compared to the minimal, plain offerings from the local florist. The flowers were the perfect completion to bring the lavish detail and extraordinary touch to a simple and elegant wedding.  Show more

Flowers Used for Carla McDonald's Arrangements

Bright Orange Rose Wedding Pack up close

Beautiful 50 Rose Wedding Pack ( Wedding Combo Box )

Used for: Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Boutonnieres

Loved the look and value of the Rose Wedding pack. Only had to sacrifice one or two roses due to being squished in the packing box. The greenery was very complimentary to the volume of flowers. (ordered Burgundy Hypericum Berries, and White Roses.)

Fantastic looking flower. Very vibrant and opened well.

Minerva Purpleberry Wholesale Carnations Up close

Carnation Flower Burgundy Moonlight ( 6 bunches, 150 stems )

Gorgeous carnations. Very unique, deep burgundy color but still had some 'lightness' to them due to the underside of the petals. Would definitely purchase again.
