Brooch bouquet

Check this out! I've been wanting to do a brooch bouquet forever! While I can't claim full responsibility for creating this beauty, I did take the role of 'artistic director,' if you will. One of my fav brides of the summer, Allison, had the idea of putting together a brooch bouquet for photos and as a keep sake from her wedding. All of her wedding shower guests contributed a brooch, and she collected quite a few herself. She showed up to my shop with brooches pre-wired, all construction elements and fabulous ideas. The base of the bouquet is her 'something blue,' and was the tie her father wore on her parents wedding day. The tie and photo brooch with her fathers photo held great significance for Allison, representing his presence in spirit on her wedding day. Thank you Allison for letting me a part of constructing this gorgeous and sentimental keepsake. It was so much fun working with you!
