Utah Bride and Groom

Singular Sensations: Solar Power

“Mixture and placement of blooms is key,” says Jessica St. Thomas of St. Thomas Floral. She blends electric oranges and sunny golds in her monochromatic display using classically romantic blooms such as ranunculus, traditional roses, garden roses, zinnias and rose buds. “I love color,” she says. “Some people shy away from color because it can look cheesy fast.” Instead of forcing every color of a wedding palette into a bouquet, she suggests editing the arrangement to just one. Once a single hue is chosen, keep it small. “My brides this year have been asking for something smaller; they don’t want an oversized bouquet.”
