The bride’s bouquet contrasted perfectly with her bridesmaid ensembles. Dusty miller, ivory roses, and purple calla lilies created a textural effect for Sarah, while her attendants held sunset orange roses and dried lotus.  The purple satin gowns further highlighted the bride and up-swept curls kept the overall look soft.
