The greenery looks like some sort of ivy (trailing ivy?). When trying to google for this information, I came across this fact.

Ivy symbolizes eternal fidelity & wedded bliss. A popular Victorian tradition was for a bride to plant the ivy in her bouquet after the wedding and watch it grow through the years, passing down sprigs from the same plant for her daughters & granddaughters to use in their weddings.

That dark maroon flower looks like a gerber daisy or a mum of some kind. The white clustered flower MIGHT be Queen Anne’s lace. No idea what those satellite orb things are, but they are cool! 

Edit: You are right about the deep orange flower…it looks like a calla. 

Pretty bouquet!

The grass crossing the bouquet is bear grass likely. The weird looking spikey ball things are maybe queens Anne lace (young).  You will be able to get the roses, callas, and sunflowers from sams but probably not the ivy, and maybe not the gerbers/mums/whatever the maroon is. You might want to look into dahlias, though. They come in maroon and are available from places like fifty flowers.
