The French use the phrase “je ne sais quoi” to refer to an intangible quality that makes something distinctive and attractive. Yumiko of Hana Floral Designs has achieved this level of appeal with her timelessly elegant and sophisticated flowers for the big day. It is that little something you can’t put your finger on, but at one glance, you know, “That’s a Hana Bride.”

Check out these four Saltwater Farm Vineyard weddings for inspiration for your own #HanaBride moment.

And I just couldn’t bear to leave out this wedding from a couple seasons back. Without the help of Hana Floral’s Blog, I couldn’t identify the flowers, but the palatte of yellows and ivorys with pops of green, peach and orange is a personal favorite and perfection for a spring wedding.
