Have you had a chance to dig through our brand-new editorial gallery yet? It has to be one of my favorite parts of the new site (aside from the Southern Thangs filter!). As Nicole and I were formatting six years of Southern Weddings print editorials in prep for the launch, it was so fun to immerse ourselves in older shoots that we had almost forgotten about, like this one or this one. We were surprised to see that we had never done a blog post on one of our favorite shoots that debuted all the way back in V3, Something Blue with Mr. Jose Villa. There’s no time like the present, though, don’t you think? Please enjoy, and be sure to check out the editorial gallery with all of the details!

    Hydrangeas, peonies, ranunculus and hosta leaves! oh my!

  2. avatar rachel reply

    I’m also tweeting about this – @rachelwould

  3. avatar rachel reply

    Absolutely incredible! I would love one of these!
    I would choose the peonies, hydrangeas and crocus!

  4. avatar Haley reply

    Hiya lovely SW Mag ladies! I’d really love to have Peonies, Hydrangea, and Garden Roses in my bouquet. I’d also love to add a touch of something vintage while still staying true to the southern feel…like 1 magnolia or a little cotton.

    • avatar Haley reply

      I forgot to include this….*****I’d also have flowers made our of paper with the lyrics to our first dance and our wedding vows.

  5. avatar rachel reply

    @rachelwould – I am tweeting a tweet about you both! ;)

  6. avatar Amber M. reply

    The Dinnerplate Dahlias, Hydrangeas, Peonies, unopened*, & Ranunculus are all BEAUTIFUL. I hope to see them in a gorgeous bouquet! You are extremely talented!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  7. avatar spry reply

    hmmmm I have been fighting w/ my mother about hydrangeas in my bouquet b/c their language is “change of heart,” as they change color depending on the soil, so are unfitting for a wedding…. but they’re so cute and seasonal and i love them.
    The flowers I want just clash! Hyacinths, peonies, aaaand dahlias??

  8. avatar Madelynne Miller reply

    I would definitely include ranunculas, daffodils. yellow peonies, wattle, anemones, poppies, and zinnias. They are all SO beautiful though!

  9. avatar Madelynne Miller reply

    I tweeted about this amazing contest! I hope I win!

  10. avatar anne reply

    oooooh, gorgeousness! i would want a riot of ruffly blooms : peonies (opened, poms), magnolias (a nod to our savannah home and location for our wedding) and double camellias.

  11. avatar Jenny reply

    Since many of the flowers were made in all-white for the palette of the photo shoot and that may make them more challenging to identify, the bouquet includes: gardenias, hydrangea in blue and sand, roses, camellias, lisianthus, and ruffle peonies.

    If you *really* love the bouquet in the photo, I might be convinced to give it up to the giveaway winner … it’s one of my personal favorites and I’ve been holding on to it for display in my studio. ;D

    Can’t wait to see what the winner selects!!

  12. avatar gloria reply

    Cosmos and zinnias!! Yes, please!! I adore them, but sadly, they are not available in April when I’m getting married. I never thought of paper flowers as a way to get around their growing season!!

  13. avatar Ginger reply

    I cannot get over the bouquet featured in the Paper, Cotton and Flour photoshoot. It’s simply breath taking!! The colors are perfect, and it has such a charming feel to it. If I was able to design my own bouquet, I would want something similar–gardenias, blue and sand hydrangea, roses, camellias, and white clover (it grows on our cattle ranch, so it’d be a nice sentimental touch).
    Crimson Poppy, your work is amazing! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  14. avatar Elizabeth reply

    What amazing creations! I have always adored parrot tulips, poppies, and garden roses together– they all look like paper already so it would be neat to see them actually made out of paper!

  15. avatar Carrie reply

    I would love to have a bouquet of pink peonies (my favorite) with white roses made of paper with our handwritten wedding vows in gold ink. I would like some other smaller flowers too, but I would want Jenny to help me pick something out. She is amazingly talented!

    @kckalmar tweeted about the long lasting and gorgeous paper flowers from @thecrimsonpoppy @iloveswmag

    I would include peonies, ranunculus, roses, double camelias and dahlias in my paper wedding bouquet.

  19. avatar Laura P reply

    These are so gorgeous! I would love dahlias, peonies, ranunculus and gardenias.

  20. avatar Ginger reply

    @GingerKKelly tweeted about @thecrimsonpoppy’s unbelievably gorgeous flowers.

  21. avatar Kari Camacho reply

    zinnias are so pretty and colorful <3

  22. avatar Courtney reply

    WONDERFUL! I would choose anemone, hydrangeas, ranunculus, and eucalyptus leaves.

  23. avatar Ashley reply

    i already know shes making the flowers for my wedding. no debating there, have known for years now =)
    not sure on the flowers, maybe poppies and white anemones, what ever it is, super colorful

  24. avatar Megan D reply

    I would do an entire bouquet in peony’s ruffled. Its a classic look that would compliment my dress and the vision I have for my wedding.

  25. avatar Jessica reply

    I would choose hydrangeas, daisies, and then smaller flowers to make it a little fuller! I would love for some of the daisies to have lyrics to This Years Love by David Gray!!!

  26. avatar jennifer reply

    These are more beautiful than the real thing. I would have a mix of white hydrangeas, white geraniums, and white gardenias, with violet blue hydrangeas as the contrasting color. Hydrangeas are my favorite and the paper ones capture them so well!

  27. avatar Jessica H reply

    This is gorgeous I would include sweet peas, ranunculus, and the snowball. However, the bouquet you featured matches my color scheme exactly. Oh the choices!

  28. avatar Jessica H reply

    @Msjessicalynne—-I tweeted at you both : )

  29. avatar Laura reply

    First of all, Gorgeous!! I loved so many, but especially loved the Peony tree, iceland poppy, and ranunculus. What amazing talent. Good luck to everyone!

  30. avatar Cole Carey reply

    I just wanted to comment on the amazing bouquet in the photo above. You are a phenomenal artist, Jenny. My fiancé and I are getting married on the 19th of this month. She will be carrying some beautiful sunflowers. I’m sure she wouldn’t mind getting a keepsake to remind her of it. :)
