YES! June is a prime wedding time for Gillespie Florists as the first weekend of June brought about our second round of an eight wedding weekend! What else could we do but showcase some of the gorgeous bouquets which left our building and made June 2-3, 2017, marvelous wedding days.


These bouquets and boutonnieres are boasting the beauty of seasonal favorites such as gerbera daisies, hydrangea as well as a favorite choice for every season, the classic rose. We have lovely accent florals creating fantastic texture and kicking up the color palettes a notch such as in the bouquet featuring colors pastel peach and blue.

One of our brides selected delicate pastel blue delphinium which brought out the pop of peach gerberas and sweetheart roses for a sweet marriage of complementary colors. The design was tied together (pun intended) with twine and a dash of babies breath. Another favorite for the weekend was the complex and eyecatching texture created through burgandy astilbe, stars of Bethlehem with dark centers, lavender waxflower, navy blue hypericum berries and italian ruskus. The fabulous movement was balanced out with the soft petals of blush sahara roses for a truly divine bridal bouquet pictured in the lower left of the collage. The mothers' wrist corsages reflected the splendor of the bridal bouquet with Star Blush spray roses, cream waxflower and burgandy sheer ribbon which coordinated perfectly with astilbe. The beauty of bridal bouquets come in all forms! Let's not forget the bold match of rich reds and bright whites along with the simple and sophisticated combination of light green hydrangea and Tiffany roses. Tiffany roses are one of our bridal rose favorites for their pale peach petals which make them perfect for a variety of styles and themes.

June is filled with joy for many reasons; from the comfortable warm weather to celebrations of love and marriage. We are proud to be take part in the season with the creation of gorgeous wedding florals to match any style and theme to make the newlywed couples' day a success and one to remember for years to come.

"Summertime is always the best of what might be"
- Charles Bowden

School bells have rung, trees are beginning to show their golden autumn colors; with soft cool breezes blending with the bold heat of the sun, summer is bidding us farewell for another year.

However, we are going review a few of our favorite summer wedding flowers before fall season hits head on!SummerWeddingSnapshot_small-01.jpg

As we begin preparing bouquets for fall weddings our favorite summer styles and colors from Summer 2016 are still fresh on the minds of our floral designers and wedding specialists. This collage is a small portion of many gorgeous weddings they have had the pleasure of helping prepare. Summer brides fashioned their weddings with a plethera of color combinations ranging from bold, bright and beautiful to the softest creamy vintage colors and everything in between. Plump and precious succulents were and are still on high demand while delicate hydrangea, peonies and ranunculous were never far behind. As always, what wedding season is without a decent dose of the classics such as ravishing roses and callas? The happiest flowers on earth, gerbera and sunflower, added festivie flair to rich in color wedding themes. 

The summer season can be gentle and rhythmic with colors reflecting warm days at the ocean and long walks on the beach and it can also be stunning, striking and vibrant with festivals, brilliant sunshine and fantastic voyages. Whatever the feeling and theme brides want to reflect on their summer wedding day; our staff stands up to the challenge of any color and flower comibination you dare to dream for your big day.
