Locally Grown Bouquets 

A party at Letchworth State Park called for fresh, locally grown flowers, that looked like they were just picked! The bride loved the bouquets, and so did the guests!

The colors and textures in these wedding bouquets take my breath away.  While they not be your chosen colors or flower choices for your wedding, they represent the peak of flower season.  And that peak for Western NY is mid-August to mid-October, it is THE time to turn to garden fresh flowers for your arrangements. The gardens have had time to bring forth a full flush of color for annuals, and some are on their 2nd or 3rd succession of color.  Especially true for sunflowers.  These glorious personal flowers also include hydrangeas, delphiniums, gerbera daisies, and you'll see eucalyptus also peeking out for some more whimsy and movement.  I have to mention the zinnias, and a boutonniere for the groom included a dahlia.  Remember,  locally grown is the same as saying:  your flowers are fresher, you have more variety to choose from (many wedding flowers don't ship well, therefore reducing your choices), and there's always something unique growing in a flower farmers garden that they love to share in your bouquet!
