Ten years ago, Heather Barrie started Gathering: Floral + Event Design out of a love for flowers and a desire to create. Since then, it has grown into a full design and event-planning company, and she has published a book about seasonal garden bouquets called “Southern Bouquets.” Her favorite flowers are constantly changing with the seasons, but she often finds floral and greenery inspiration on the side of the road or even in her own backyard in Charleston, South Carolina. "Brides with late August or early September weddings often come to me asking for color palette and flower suggestions," says Heather. "Most spring blooms are not available at that point, but there are still a lot of options for creating interesting and lush bouquets for your wedding!"
Heather loves white, cream, green, and yellow for late summer/early fall weddings. Check out the gallery below for more flower and bouquet ideas!
