Rachel’s Bouquet Painting

Congratulations on your wedding Rachel! Rachel was married March 14, 2009. Her bouquet consisted of deep red Baccara Roses. Once the flowers were pressed they became a lovely deep purple. I also included daisies from her daughter’s bouquet. The daisies had bright pink tips but once dried the pink became burgundy. Rachel said she likes burgundy and deep grape so I kept the colors deep and rich.

Let me preserve your bouquet!

Have you thought about having your bouquet preserved? Many people think their only option is to dry out their bouquet and place it in a shadow box. I am offering something completely different. I will dry and press your flowers, and then I will incorporate them into a painting. This is a great way to save your flowers. Below you will see a brides inspiration bouquet(hers looked very similar) and the painting once it was finished.

12 x 12 Painting

I only know of two other companies that provide this service. My prices are much lower not only because I am just starting out but because I want to offer this service at an affordable price so more brides have the chance to take advantage of such a great service.

12 x 12 $200

11 x 14 $215

12 x 16 $245

14 x 18 $275

16 x 20 $300

18 x 24 $350

24 x 24 $375

24 x 30 $425

30 x 40 $500

On average it will take 6- 12 weeks for a painting to be completed. It all depends on what types of flowers you have. I will give you shipping instructions if you are out of the area or if you are around the Novi, Michigan area I can meet up with your to get you flowers. Flowers can be shipped from any location overnight. All shipping charges are additional. If you would like more information please e-mail me at

Also if you book a package with Grand Jour Events you will save 10% on any painting!

And a great big thank you to all the wonderful brides that have offered to let me experiment with their bouquets. This is really a great way for me to gain more experience and for you to receive a free painting.
