Pomegranate Family Tree

An old college friend of Laura’s reached out to us for a surprise gift for her husband. They’re love story is staggeringly similar to our own; English boy meets American girl, they fall madly in love and want to spend the rest of their lives together, it’s perfect!

Abigail and Tristram are coming up on their first year anniversary (the paper anniversary) and we were asked to create a large family tree for them which incorporated elements from their sweet low-key English wedding that was filled with garden flowers and of course family.

There was so much inspiration to choose from here’s a snippet of what Laura got to work with:

“We had loads of lilacs, garden flowers and some from the florist, pretty informal and just bright and spring-like. I was desperate for bright colors after a pretty grey English winter. There were yellow tulips and roses, purple irises and little white irises, forget-me-nots, those green round things that grow wild in England, wallflowers that went from pinkish purple to orangeish to yellow at the top. I went to a normal florist but also the supermarket and raided the mother-in-law’s and neighbor’s garden, and put them together myself the night before after everyone was asleep.”
