Peach Dahlias and Zinnias with Black Eyed Susans for Summer Weddings

Yes, it really is summer!!! I was lulled into thinking that the weather we had been experiencing earlier in July and June was summer weather- well that was wrong- so here it is the real thing, lots of humidity and temps in the 90's.
Good thing there are flowers that can take this heat. Flowers that actually like it, like Black-eyed Susans and zinnias and gomphrena.
 Here they are in a bouquet in soft and warm peach tones, golden yellows and orange and red.  Yes, these flowers are the epitome of summer.
This centerpiece also features zinnias, dahlias and Black-eyed Susan along with yellow stems of butterfly bush, orange crocosmia and orange butterflyweed.
Garden foliage abounds in the summertime- hellebore leaves, scented geranium, ferny stems from yarrow and stonecrop..
For textural interest add brown and orange discs from Black-eyed Susans and Purple Cone flowers as well as the flower cones from Bee Balm. 
These pieces are destined for a styled shoot by Swanky Elephant Planning and Design that will be photographed by Blest Photography.
