Approaching wedding planning as the ultimate opportunity to curate the kaleidoscopic flowerscape of your dreams? Then this maximalist-wedding-flowers post is for you. Below: six Sweet Talk clients who could definitely relate.
Angela’s bouquet was a paragon of our rare-and-remarkable sweet spot. Starring: meticulously-tinted anthurium by Haus of Stems, coral-like brain celosia, violets, and sweet pea blooms. We augmented the otherworldly amethyst floral colorway with floaty hand-dyed pampas and asparagus ferns (which echoed Angela’s feather cape so nicely).

As flower variety and hue goes, the design for this Lyman Estate wedding was pretty classic. But the sheer volume of English garden blooms and Russian olive foliage—richly adorning each surface and overflowing from giant golden chalices—certainly abided by the “more is more” axiom.

With fluffy pampas grass, autumn eucalyptus, and long stems of seed-laden millet, this Dragonline Studios wedding was rich with texture everywhere you looked. If you ask us, our favorite installation of the day was Alexis and Nate’s lavishly adorned just-married mustang.

Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette was the inspiration for these over-the-top florals. Taking cues from film posters and stills, we started the ceremonial install with an ice-blue base (the baby’s breath and asparagus ferns are actually hand-dyed) and worked in splashes of vibrant gold. Then we incorporated rouge-pot pinks and reds in the form of lush, fat roses.

Big color and an eclectic effect (yay disco balls!) were super important to Leah and Ed, so we got to work sourcing the most vivid flowers. And in the end, the white backdrop of the Dye House studio acted as the perfect canvas to the euphorically bright installations and floating floral arrangements.

The vision? Bold, romantic, and bursting with life. The blooms—dahlias, roses, ranunculus, peonies…the list goes on—were so naturally vibrant and full that all we had to do to help them shine was treat them with the same tender loving respect we give to all our flowers.
