Rosé Inspired Blooms + Bridal Fashion at Alderbrook Resort
The stunning Hood Canal sets the stage for romantic loose florals perfectly paired with rosé and oyster-filled evenings.
The trailing garden-style bouquet pictured above ($375) from Michael Sing at Bahtoh includes Quicksand roses, white Icelandic poppies, white Veronica, trailing jasmine, White Majolica spray roses, lilac, hellebores, silver dollar seeded eucalyptus, and Italian Ruscus, creating an impressive focal point to complement your look.

This bouquet, created by Carey Wendel of Bleedfoot Florals, is lush with garden roses, lily of the valley, jasmine, ranunculus, lilacs, Koko Loko roses, and Distant Drums roses. “I wanted it to be very full and soft, almost entirely made of flowers for a romantic and fresh-from-the-garden feel. Muted blushes give this bouquet a feminine but sophisticated touch, while the lily of the valley keeps it sweet and sentimental,” she says.

Sara Jane Camacho of Thatch Floral takes inspiration from a singular botanical and builds a bouquet off what would best showcase that particular bloom. In the case of this bright beauty ($365), she was inspired by the wily quality of arugula stems that had gone to seed in her garden, mixing them with ruffled hellebores; white, mauve, and picotee ranunculus; white lilac; white spirea; cobra lily; and blush anemone.
“My garden is partly shaded, so the arugula was reaching and twisting in ways to reach the sun that created some wild shapes. Each stem was a testament of the hardwon struggle for light and life,” she says. The result is a fresh palette with an earthy patina, paired with hand-dyed merlot ribbons by Of the Earth.
