This gorgeous pinwheels and posies shoot was done at Lionsgate in Lafayette, Colorado! The awesome Colorado wedding photographer was Ashley Kidder with Urban Safari. Bella Calla loved doing the bright centerpieces and bridal bouquet! The coral charm peonies, the bright ginger, the fun billy balls, and the rad passion vine made this shoot SO much fun to design!

Peony Season is our favorite season at Denver Wedding Florist Bella Calla. Duchesse Peony, Coral Charm Peony, Sarah Bernhardt Peony, Sorbet Peony, Felix Red Peony... No matter what your pleasure, June is the month for perfect peonies. July is a close second.
We start getting peonies in Colorado in May, typically, and we finish our good season mid-July. Peonies are one of the most expensive wedding flowers, as is well published. What's nice about them, in contrast, is that they are a quite large bloom in season. This gives them a large spread and quite a big bang for the buck. We think of peonies in weddings as a focus flower surrounded by other, more reasonably priced flowers, as well as other favorites, like ranunculus and garden roses...
Peach and Coral wedding flowers are just my favorite! We love a good peach color palate with greyish greens, pops of yellow, and fun coral flowers! Lots of flowers come in peach and coral. We've included a bunch of ideas here, so you can see a list of options for coral wedding flowers!
The bouquet to the left has peach ranunculus right in the middle. Ranunculus have thin, tissue-like petals, and are quite hardy in summer bouquets. They are available most months of the year. Mango calla lilies are the orangey-yellowy flower right next to the ranunculus. They are very hardy, and work very well in boutonnieres. This bouquet has some fun textural elements as well, like the kangaroo paw sticking out, the bright green "trick" flower, seeded eucalyptus in the front, and locally grown crabapples! We encourage you to have fun with the items we choose for your bouquets! The bouquet also has dahlias in it... but check out the ones below for a better shot!

Ok, Denver. Seriously. Brr. -10 degrees? I am pretty sure all of us who moved here from Michigan are homesick and all of us who moved here from the south are miserable. Please get back to your 30 degree fluctuations in the winter, and give us our 30 degree nights and 60 degree days back!
So all that being said, being a wedding florist in Denver, I decided to post some of my favorite bouquets and boutonnieres from the summer. Poppies, protea, and lotus pods fill this delicious bouquet photographed by one of Denver's top photographers, Rayna Mcguiness.
The rich colors in this bridal bouquet are hunger-inspiring in rich fuchsia, hot yellows and oranges, and bright, scrumptious greens. The bouquet contains anemones, ranunculus, poppies, juliet garden roses, geranium foliage, rosemary, lotus pods, mums, and pincusions! It was designed for Wedding Wars Colorado, 2014.
Peacock feathers, lovely tropical heliconia, green trick, orchids and awesome summer grasses fill this tropical bridal bouquet. We love doing wedding flowers in Denver, but we also love the warm sands of the tropics. This shoot was designed to mix the two. A perfect summer bridal bouquet, contrasting against the ballerina style wedding dress.
Check out those peonies! Yes! Those hot pink monsters are peonies. The Parrot tulip in the top is rad as well, eh? This bouquet also has anemones, pincushions, and orange ranunculus. Hyacinth provides that stark white contrast. Photo by Jennie Crate.
Succulent boutonnieres are some of my faves! They last SO long, and can be re-planted after the wedding to last a lifetime! Thsi one had awesome peacock feathers, midolina wood, and bright colors to contrast the grey accented suit the groom wore! Love succulent bouts!
Check out this boutonniere with feathers, wax flower and leucadendron flower! Very unusual boutonniere, and a fun summer palate. If you want a masculine boutonniere for your summer wedding flowers, we are happy to accommodate!
Hops! Such the perfect summer treat. This hops boutonniere is made with pheasant feathers and succulents as well. The groom brewed beer, so we added hops to the wedding floral. Love those personal touches, even for the grooms!
Hope our summer floral helped warm you up, and improve the mood! It should be 50 degrees next week in Denver, so maybe we'll post our winter wonderland wedding! Stay tuned!
