Floral Anatomy: Wild and Nontraditional Bouquet | Azalea Botanics

Floral Anatomy on A Colorado Courtship

Allo all! Welcome to Floral Anatomy – the replacement for Floral Fridays. Yes it’s exactly the same thing…and I decided to publish the first installment on a Friday. *ahem* But going forward, these gems will appear whenever inspiration is there to be shared. It’s no secret to frequent readers of the blog that I’m gaga over floral design. I still very much want to present my readers with bite-sized portions of floral greatness as often as I can. As usual, florist and photographer have combined their powers to create something visually yummy. Enjoy!

This wild and nontraditional bouquet was made for a re-styled shoot of the couple’s wedding day. Dissatisfied with their images, they recreated some of the most important elements and, as photographers themselves, captured new images of each other. The floral designer, Azalea Botanics, incorporated ranunculus, spray roses, Monte Cassino, eryngium, succulent, dried pods from the florist’s garden, and willow eucalyptus.

What makes a talented floral designer’s work stand out from…well…everything else; is that it can make you stop, examine, and FEEL something. Floral design is an art form involving an understanding of the way that colors, shapes, and textures play together. This exquisitely textured bouquet gets its qualities from multiple varieties of eucalyptus. Not only does this bouquet make me want to stop, examine, and bathe in the romance; I want to stick my face in that bouquet and take in what I can only imagine is an intoxicating scent. Yum!
