When South Dakota Wedding Style asked us to contribute to their ‘Vintage Glamour’ photo shoot, we were more than excited to lend our floral designs. A white dinner jacket, a tower of champagne and a vintage airplane all led to the creation of the 1940s, Casablanca-like concept. With our floral designs, we wanted to bring an added touch of elegance and flair. The floral centered around white romantic blooms, gold foliage, and black accents. Through the combined work of some of Sioux Falls’ most talented wedding vendors, the end result was an inspiring, real-life, glamorous affair.
The latest photo shoot by Kelli Hunt Photography featuring Oh My Cupcakes! and flowers by yours truly (Bella Rosa of course) is a must see!
There’s nothing like a bright, spring inspired photo shoot to make a dreary South Dakota day feel sunny and warm. When picking out the flowers for this shoot, I chose to use hydrangea, dahlias, and tulips in white and stout pink to create a clean and fresh contrast. Keep in mind, when picking flowers for arrangements, you want to have variety, with not only color, but also with the style of flower used. Hydrangeas are great for helping to fill out an arrangement without a ton of cost. Dahlias are a nice, hearty flower with tons or great details with all of the petals, making it a great pair to the tall and sleek tulip. And don’t be afraid to mix up your container; by placing fresh stems in a blue mason jar, rather than a standard vase, you are able to add color and character without breaking the bank. This style is great not only for weddings, but also baby showers, bridal showers or fun spring decor to brighten up your home.

I’ve just finished up a busy time with Valentine’s Day, and at some point during all of the craziness, especially after seeing all of the cards, candy and balloons this year, it made me think of the cliche bouquet: red roses with LOTS of baby’s breath.
For years, baby’s breath, also known as gypsophila or “gyp”, has taken a back seat (and even I can admit I have tried to stay away from it.) However, in it’s defense, baby’s breath is coming back and is now being used in modern arrangements. Even brides who are looking for a vintage, country or boho feel (without a lot of expense) are incorporating baby’s breath into everything from ceremony decorations and centerpieces to solely baby’s breath for their wedding bouquets.
