Drumroll please for one of The Local Bouquet's most treasured blooms.......the Peony!
The peony is one of the industry's most coveted flowers by both designers and brides so when June approaches it is no wonder bouquets and centerpieces become filled with this gorgeous flower!
In June, as we walk through the rows and rows of lovingly planted and cared for rootstock, we feel overwhelmed with happiness and satisfaction knowing that we get to provide every one of our brides with the freshest, most gorgeous product possible. To us, the peony is the "kick-off" to the wedding season as well as the culmination of what it means to celebrate seasonal, locally-grown flowers, although we may be a little bias too!
Because each flower is only in season for a certain amount of time, our yearly joy and anticipation for each bloom is that much more special! Every June, in the peak of peony season, we are reminded not only of why we love this particular bloom so much, but also why we have made the "field to vase" mantra the core of our mission.
We love that we were able to showcase this particular bloom at Kevin and Nicole's glamorous wedding. This fun-loving and energetic couple were excited to mix genres by embracing a "romantic garden" meets "modern cityscape" theme. Nicole's bouquet was one of our favorites of the year, featuring blush pink, coral, and fuchsia peonies, all locally grown from Electric Moon Peony Farm in Rhode Island, just three miles from our studio.
The Villa in East Bridgewater, a dazzling contemporary venue, was decorated with corals, pinks, and rich summer greenery in both elevated glass designs and low and lush, gold designs, fusing edgy glamour with garden romance.
Thank you to Nicole and Kevin as well as all of our other amazing couples that have supported our philosophy and have joined us in celebrating each season's local flowers!
