Bliss Extraordinary Floral, located in the painted deserts of Sedona, Arizona, doesn’t just build flowery accessories for weddings. No, no. They seriously create masterpieces that are dreamlike and rich in detail. Amy Mills, owner and talented designer, knows a thing or two about flowers, but also has the eye for going the extra mile to work with a bride on executing her vision. Take note, Arizona ladies: working with Bliss is truly, well, bliss!
Let’s take a tour of her work that proves my point because I promise I’m not a liar!
Remember last week’s post about the hottest trend of including peacock elements? Bliss Extraordinary Floral does an extraordinary job with this scheme. The photos are by Leeann Marie Photography who beautifully captured the bridesmaids’ small rose bouquet with a touch of peacock feathers; and tables that held extra large milk jar vases, filled with white hydrangea, purple stock, purple alstromeria, Bells of Ireland, Akita roses and of course lots of feathers.
Something else Bliss does well is perfectly-stated simplicity. Amy knows not to mess with natural beauty. When it comes to sunflowers, they’re about as naturally beautiful as flowers come. So when a bride wants a sunflower-heavy wedding, a good floral designer knows to let the big yellow blooms speak for themselves. And boy do they! Summer and fall brides, take note!

For ultimate bridal softness, take a snoop at this wedding! I’m not sure how she does it, but Amy can use the most powdery colored florals and still create a palette that pops with chic colors. This design screams “bridal!!!!!” but with a tenderness and plushness that makes me want to trade in my mattress for a bed of these flowers. The pomanders were whimsical and the centerpieces consisted of David Austin roses, Equidorian roses, carnations, sweet peas and hypericum in moss covered urns that graced the tables. And her wrought iron tree chuppah marries natural beauty with modern flair. It’s sturdy and traditional, but emits a new and fresh style. Photos are by Heather Kadar Photography.
