Christine got married in Chicago and physically carried her bridal bouquet 
all the way home on the plane and to my studio! 
Isn't it a beauty? 
White roses,Lisianthus, Ranunculus, Succulents and Eucalyptus! 

Floral Design by: Mark Weber of Kloeckner Preferred Flowers, Chicago, IL

 Christine chose to have her flowers pressed and presented on a 
Neutral Gray background and in an 11x14" silver oval frame. 
The ribbons hanging down had been the ribbon wrapped around the stems.

Thank you so much, Christine, for the pleasure of preserving your bouquet!

Melissa chose a Barely Pink background and a 12x16" Mahogany Frame 
for her sweet rose bridal bouquet. 
I love when I find heart shaped rose petals in the bouquet 
and always try to tuck them into the design!
 
I got the artwork tonight! I love it so much!!! It is so beautiful!!  
Thank you for making it. I absolutely love the way that it turned out 
and I'm so excited to hang it up and enjoy it for years to come.

Fragrant, Romantic Bridal Bouquet of Peonies, Mums, Roses, Lilac, 
Eucalyptus and Dusty Miller! 

Bouquet Design by: Candler Park Flowers, Atlanta, GA

 Nichole chose to have her bridal bouquet pressed and preserved around her bridal picture, 
on an Dawn Gray background. She actually ordered an antique white frame and I
 mistakenly framed it in barnwood. (This will be changed)

Thank you, Nichole, for being such a sweet, beautiful bride to work with! 
Your flowers were beautiful! Annie, Pressed Garden
