CJ ♥ Mike Engagement flowers

This collection was totally inspired by the huge amounts of personality this amazing couple embody. My goal was to use CJ's favorite flowers, lilies, and give them a 1950's flare. I used red gerbaras, vibrunum, green mums and yellow foliage and white lilies. This vintage, dome shaped bird cage was used to house this unique display. It took some thoughtful engineering to achieve the asymmetrical flow of flowers. The engagement took place in a local bar which inspired me to use whiskey bottles for the taller arrangements, while the shorter ones worked perfect in small vintage mason jars.
