Un-Flower Flowers

After seeing acres of standard peonies, roses, and ranunculus (ranunculi?) at events all year long, sometimes we like to change things up and rethink the whole flower idea completely.

For instance, at the wedding below, we turned to the artisans at EmersonMade in New York for their modern “tie tacks” as groomsmen boutonnières. At the same wedding, we collected a passel of vintage brooches to use as part of the escort card easel to shake it up a bit. I love how effortlessly Cheree Berry picked up the punchy summer vibe for the stationery suite, too.

Both floral spin-offs felt just right for our one-of-a-kind couple, Ali and Paul!
