Now that the temperature has finally cooled down, I wanted to share a few Autumn inspired arrangements and bouquets from the past couple weeks.

These first few were from an elopement! Those always feels really special and exciting. This bride wanted to use colour, which I was very enthused about. I tend to use a lot of softer palettes for most weddings so when a bride is open to using richer tones or unique colour palettes I get excited to work with something different! In the past, I found red to be quite harsh and difficult to work with. But lately I've been so drawn to it and was really hoping I would get the chance to arrange with red while the dahlias are still with us. I still wanted the bouquet to have some softness and dimension to it so I incorporated my favourite nude carnations and a few different pale pink roses.

These next few were for an engagement session by my friend Dave at We Are Origami. I used deep, rich tones of burgundy, plum and purple. Sweet peas made their first appearance for the season so I had to include a few of those (nothing more exciting then when new flowers start showing up at the market). These were just taken with my iphone so I'm looking forward to seeing the professional images from Dave once they're ready!
