If you know anything about my style as a floral designer, it is that I love to think out of the box. Modern and funky florals are my absolute favorite. This element of your wedding deserves the creative effort contributed to the rest of your design. When I received the opportunity to work with Rachel and Anthony for their Orange County wedding, I was excited from our first inquiry call!
In this blog, you will see an abundance of fun florals with a focus on shape. The couple knew they desired plenty of romance for their big day along with some boho themes. However, they also were inspired by their modern venue and wanted to elevate these ideas in their design. Keep reading to see how the shape of each floral piece contributed to this vision! I can’t wait to share the floral details from this modern and romantic wedding at Hangar 21 with you.
Let’s start with the bouquet! Say hello to this dream of pink ranunculus, cream roses, anthurium, and a stunning orchid waterfall. I allowed certain florals to stand out in this bouquet like that bold anthurium bloom and the cascading orchids. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different styles of florals to achieve your unique style. You might be surprised how well they actually fit together. Every angle of this bouquet contains a surprise. The look is ultimately cohesive without being too uniform.
This ceremony is similar to the bouquet in the sense that every angle is equally beautiful but different! The focal point for the ceremony took place against a minimalistic background and the couple stood on the steps of the “stage”. The surroundings included a lush greenery wall, string lights, and a gorgeous view of the venue. I created two complimenting floral features to frame the ceremony. Those textural pieces of pampas grass never fail! Say it with me: “Less is often more.”
Those ceremony florals needed more time to shine so we brought them over to the reception! These were repurposed in a fun and modern method. Remember how I said those pamapas grass pieces never fail? Well, they didn’t let us down for the reception. I created captivating pampas grass swooshes to surround all of those smaller florals. The indoor space demanded some bold flower features!
Guests were introduced to the reception by finding their seat on a metal grid seating chart outside. Then on each guest table, I continued to add centerpieces with all of the lovely blooms that you have seen from other portions of this day. Which flowers are your favorite?
I had a blast adding my floral creations to this modern space! If you are planning your Orange County wedding, let’s chat. I would love to hear your story.
