Despite this year being such an unprecented and hard year to plan and host weddings, there have still been a plethora of beautiful details and moments! My 2020 wedding season wrapped up at the very end of October, and it’s safe to say that, despite its many challenges, this was still a wonderful year in many ways, filled with amazing brides and grooms, top-notch vendors, stunning designs, and a whole lot of love.
I wanted to share many of the Stephanie Shaul Events couples’ bridal bouquets of 2020… a glimpse into the wedding designs and planning that I was honored to be a part of. I love, love, love flowers, and getting to work alongside some of the very best florists of Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and Charlottesville was nothing short of marvelous. Though I had a hand in designing and styling each of these weddings, these incredible florists absolutely knocked it out of the park and created such impeccable bouquets!! One of my personal favorite parts of every wedding day is bringing the bride her bridal bouquet and seeing her reaction: a mix of sheer joy, excitement, and awe! And goodness, every bridal bouquet this past year was truly spectacular. I’ll let you see for yourself…

How breathtaking are each of these bouquets (and these amazing couples)?! It was a remarkable year, despite its hurdles, and all of these bridal bouquets are as unique as these brides and grooms and their wedding designs. From brightly colored bouquets to all-white bouquets to trailing colorful ribbons and everything in between, I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at the bridal bouquets that made up the Stephanie Shaul Events 2020 weddings. Heartfelt thanks to each of these outstanding florists — and photographers! — who created and captured such beautiful treasures for these beautiful brides to carry! It was such a joy to work alongside all of these talented vendors as we brought these dream wedding days to life for such wonderful couples.
Now tell me: is there a bouquet or two that especially speaks to you?! Are you on board the trailing ribbon train? You know I certainly am!
