Real Wedding Photos

I have had the pleasure of working with Amy since meeting her last fall at a bridal show. She has become a real fan of clay flowers and it was a pleasure to design the wedding invitations and clay flowers for her wedding to Rob. The wedding was yesterday and I was delighted to drop by to see the ceremony. It was a lovely afternoon wedding in the country - the wedding party looked gorgeous and there was a lot of love and happiness for this special day! Thank you for allowing me to share in your wedding day.
Congratulations Amy and Rob - may your long life together be full of good health and everlasting happiness!

Clay flowers look so realistic, in person and in photos! I was happy to deliver Amy's entire order of wedding flowers nine days before the less (very important) component of a wedding not to worry about for the bride and groom! I was going on vacation and would not be back until moments before the ceremony, so delivering the flowers in advance worked well for everyone - there is no fresh florist that can do that!

Amy's wedding flowers included: Red Poppies, Red Peonies, Red Roses and Stephanotis. She specifically did not want any greenery in her bouquet, so there were challenges for me to keep the design as life-like as possible. One solution is that I mixed the clay to have several shades of red to give it a more realistic look. Amy was thrilled with how it turned out! Robert's boutonniere was designed using a sentimental flower for him - cherry blossoms! So delicate in real life, there is no way fresh blossoms could have been used (let alone found here, this time of year).

I will post some more of the clay flower details so you can see how everlasting flowers made of clay can work into your special event or home decor.
