"I love begonia foliage—maroon and silvery leaves with jagged edges. And here, I wanted to use pink but make it less feminine. You want to think beyond the obvious and pay attention to texture. I have so many brides who are like, 'I love ranunculus!' To be honest, they're beautiful, but if I don't ever see another ranunculus boutonniere again, I'd be happy."
Boutonniere of celosias, begonia, and gazania foliage, $25, Fox Fodder Farm.
