Casual Summer Wedding Bouquet

This free-form bouquet was created by the folks at Nashville-based event-design company Cedarwood Weddings. (FYI: They have a fab barn on a 50-acre nature preserve, for those of you in the area.) What makes this a modern bouquet? For starters, the fact that they've blended what are considered to be more exotic flowers like mokara orchids with garden-variety flowers like zinnias and herbs, and that they've incorporated so many different blooms in a single arrangement. The 10 flowers used here (cream stock, wine dahlias, tulips, mokara orchids, freesia, ranunculus, roses, spray roses, zinnias, and craspedia) are in season in late summer.
