Fresh from the Field Wedding Flowers is a complete guide to using local flowers for weddings. It was created for the eco-conscious couple committed to having a greener wedding, the passionate gardener who wants to grow flowers for events, the floral designer who wishes to jump in on the locally grown trend, and the specialty cut flower farmer who will be offering wedding services. Beautifully illustrated with photographs from dozens of actual weddings, this book provides advice on where to find local flowers, what blooms are available in each season, how to stretch a floral budget and what to expect when working with local flower farmers. Five detailed step-by-step photo essays walk you through the process of creating your own bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, and large arrangements. Four in-depth videos totaling 75 minutes teach you the basic mechanics and overall thought process that goes into creating the flowers for an event. Designer Erin Benzakein demonstrates how she constructs an abundant bridal bouquet, a large altar arrangement, a low and lush centerpiece, a boutonniere, and a pin-on corsage.
