Incredible Flower Background

I discovered this image while reading the Instagram announcement that the designer of this wedding dress, Mikaella Bridal, will be included in the new line carried at Ivy Bridal Studio, a wedding dress store in Columbus Ohio.

It’s hard not to get excited after seeing a photo like this promoting the new collection.  The wall of pink flowers and flowing veil make for an iconic photo. I especially love the fallen flowers resting on the floor. Mikaella Bridal gowns have been featured in several of the top wedding publications and are internationally known for their hand detailing and embroidery work.  Mikaella Bridal has been creating exceptional wedding dresses for over a century and it looks like they’ve still got what it takes to be one of the top designers in the industry.

Wedding Florist Captures The Raw Beauty of Nature

Bend Oregon Florist A Native Bloom created this beautiful image of one of her wedding flower bouquets and sent it into me. A Native Bloom prides itself on capturing the raw beauty of nature to create beautiful flower arrangements for weddings and events.  They use a mixture of plants and flowers which give their floral creations a wild and exotic characteristic to them.

A Native Bloom was established in late 2013 and has already seen tremendous success. Madison, the owner of A Native Bloom reports that already her 2014 is mostly booked with local weddings and that she is excited to see so much success so quickly.

Madison attributes her success to being so different from her competitors.  There are a lot of other local florists in Bend Oregon, but none create arrangements with as much artistic flare as A Native Bloom – which makes sense considering Madisons background as an art therapy instructor.

When I asked Madison how she came up with her floral designs she told me that ”Art and creativity have always just come naturally to me. I’ve devoted my whole life to creating art and I finally feel like I’ve found my calling as a wedding florist”

We think so too Madison. I encourage everyone to check out A Native Blooms gallery for more unique arrangements and floral masterpieces.
