This wedding is the epitome of an Aggie Wedding, thus the titled “The Spirit of Aggieland”. The only thing I love more than creating my friends’ wedding flowers, is when I love the theme and colors they select. I met this bride while we were Fish Camp Counselors together at Texas A&M, so I loved everything about her wedding bouquets!

We used many gorgeous blooms in her bouquets, including lilies, hydrangeas, roses, freesia, alstromeria and carnations. The combination resulted in lovely and full bouquets.

The white bouquets stood out against the bridesmaids’ maroon dresses.

The maid of honor’s bouquet contained pops of maroon to set hers apart.

We used the coveted burgundy dahlia for those pops of maroon! It’s really too bad this
beautiful bloom isn’t available year round!

The Bridal bouquet comprised of all deep red and maroon flowers, with a few pops of navy.

The bridal bouquet was also a cascading bouquet-which is a personal favorite (my wedding bouquet was also a cascade!).  I love cascades, but they are not as common as I wish! (Check out the peacock cascade I designed here.)

T
he hardest part about maroon flowers is the variability of the color, but by using a deep red color scheme, the colors flow together. Fun tidbit: Lighting also affects how these red flowers appear in pictures: natural light versus blue lights (there’s your fun fact).
