|Sola wood (aka balsa wood or tapioca wood) and cotton boll alternative wedding bouquet with metallic and icy details, and a custom etched copper bouquet charm|
For her bridesmaid, I made a bouquet with sola wood flowers and simple muslin leaves and a burlap handle that complemented Elizabeth's bouquet. The bouts complemented both bouquets.
Elizabeth had two flower girls, and I made each a halo head wreath of sola wood flowers. I included some bling, copper wire and copper ribbon, to match the theme.
The ceremony included a chuppah of birch poles and cloth. I designed four pole dangles of sola wood flowers that included a faceted glass crystal ball dangle on each to catch the light as the chuppah was carried, and that matched Elizabeth's bouquet.
All of this was done in advance of the wedding; Elizabeth and her fiancee picked up everything a few weeks before the wedding on their way home from a Lake Tahoe trip. These are all items that can be done in advance, and in fact, can be mailed anywhere in the world!
Many thanks to Jessa Wilber for the photography.
