Norman & Candice, and their bold Paperversary
Perhaps one of the happiest couples I’ve worked with so far just so happen to be local Richmonders like myself: Norman and Candice! Their wedding was remarkable (I know because Norman sent me a link to their whole album!). And after reveling in the beauty and joy of the event itself, I finally focused on the florals—which did not disappoint.
Her bouquet (and the bridesmaid’s bouquets too) was positively stunning. A combination of bold reds, fuchsia, and pinks, and exotic blooms like King Protea, snapdragons, and garden roses galore. I couldn’t wait to recreate these pieces!
This was the first time I’d ever made a King Protea, so I studied up on it and paid careful attention to the details in her specific stem by matching it to the photos. I adore how this unique botanical turned out!
And so did Candice—who, as it turns out, saw my Instagram stories while I was working on her protea and recognized it as soon as her gift arrived. Norman was kind enough to send me a video of her unwrapping her bouquet, and right away she exclaimed: “It’s my bouquet!” What a fun moment to witness!
Here's a photo Norman recently shared of the final product in their home. I just love seeing where these projects end up!
