It looks as if you could use it as a weapon!

Smeeeff said...

This is the most beautiful bouquet ever! Do you know where she had it made?

colormekatie said...

@ Ren- Ha, totally! That thing was heavy!

@ Smeeeff- I didn't ask =/

Smeeeff said...

Never mind, it's lovely to see a bouquet that will last! It's always so sad to see the flowers wilting :)

Mother Leopard said...

It's funny, I had never heard or seen a 'brooch bouquet' before but now I see them everywhere. What a great idea! I doubt she wanted to throw THAT bouquet at the end of the day though! I think I might look up how to make them or see if I can make my own versions, could be a fun project.

(p.s. come to my party! blog version ;)

colormekatie said...

@Mother Leopard- Yeah! I would love to make one just to put in a vase in my apartment. So pretty!

I think I just saw you at the meet the breeds exhibition!! I wanted to say hi, but you looked intent on the camera :) Thank you for all of your cheerful and happy photos/posts/messages!

Melissa Blake said...

that is so amazing!! :)

Yoshi said...

Hey, I think I saw these on Etsy a while ago... I remember thinking, how would you throw that up in the air for people to catch without knocking them out?! Haha.

Harriet in Wonderland said...

Hi Katie!
I don't know if you will get this because you get so many comments but your blog has inspired me to do photography too! I was wondering what camera you think is good for a beginner with a low price range and not a lot of skills. Also, do you have any tips on how to get your blog going and how to make it as wonderful as you did? You inspire me everyday and I hope to hear back from you!
Thank you!
-Harriet

LOVE that! How special. And reusable, too! ;)

colormekatie said...

@Anonymous-That was definitely me! I was trying to figure out the best way to shoot the event since there were soooooo many people there. I'm sure you caught me in serious thinking face mode haha. You should have said hi! I snap out of it in a second ;)

@Harriet in wonderland-That's so wonderful! I honestly have no idea about other cameras. I've only been shooting with a 5D so that's all I really know. Sorry I'm not much help! And about your blog- I don't know the secret to getting a blog going, I just started mine on a whim and it somehow caught on. All I can really say is just be yourself and post whatever you feel like at the moment!

Random Elephant said...

That bridal bouquet looks like the design that artisans use to design the traditional costume of Oaxaca...

Monique said...

kristen said...

YAY! thats me :)

my sister made it from brooches collected from family, friends & flea markets.

for the record, it weighed 4.5 lbs... but totally worth it

Thanks, Katie, for being an awesome photog!!!

The bouquet is one of a kind, gorgeous, what a lucky bride to have it made just for her.

Mike said...

I held it at the reception...not unwieldy or heavy. Very cool idea with some interesting and memorable pins and brooches.

Plus, it will last forever!
