Lush, monochromatic bouquets for the win

To honor the bride’s Greek heritage at their October wedding at The Foundry by Herban Feast, Irene Karapas and Charles White tasked Magnolia-based florist Bella Rugosa with creating monochromatic bridal bouquets using olive branches, which are popular and prevalent in Greek culture as a symbol of peace. “I wanted them to be a bit wild, but still classic with a clean look,” the bride says of the lush and verdant bouquets, which were doubly meaningful to her as the name Irene also means peace.
