His, Hers, Ours!

Rev up the flower power everywhere they look

"We wanted to create an area for the ceremony, but an arch or gazebo would have obstructed the view," Floral Designer Keith J. Laverty says. Instead, he designed these hydrangea-filled boxes that encircled the couple and preserved the view.

"Keep floral elements to a minimum and showcase the environment. Keep flowers simple and monochromatic. Masses of the same flower work well over mixed. Make sure your flowers complement your location."

"Only one bloom takes him from man to groom. Make it good!"

"Got a favorite flower? Feature it en masse. Bouquets of one flower or one color avoid competing with the desert landscape and vistas."

"You need not have flowers everywhere — only everywhere that counts. Strategic placement, unusual shapes, and colors that pop go a long way toward creating atmosphere without overwhelming."

— Keith J. Laverty Floral Designer
