Veronique is the sister of a very good friend of mine, Sebastien who is also owner and main photographer for I felt so blessed and honored to do the flowers for her wedding to Guillaume. The wedding took place in Quebec so finishing touches had to be done on site.
Not many brides can carry off such a dark bouquet but Veronique pulled it off perfectly. She has a spanish flair to her with her dark hair and olive skin. Her bouquet was composed of Rosa Prima "freedom" roses, "Mikado" spray roses, "Ticuna" carnations- What? carnations in a wedding bouquet? yes they add beautiful texture - finishing touches include seeded eucalyptus and veriegated pitt

Guillaumes boutonniere is a "freedom" rose finished off with some copper wire
