What can I say?
I love flowers and I think a bouquet is a “must have” at any wedding!

I love weddings because I love watching two people in love vow to share that love for the rest of their lives.

BUT I also love a beautiful wedding bouquet!  I think they add a personal touch to any ceremony and help add a pop of color to a {traditionally} white or ivory dress & black suit or tux.

This sunflower bouquet added a burst of color to a gorgeous fall wedding that I had the opportunity to second shoot at with Portraits by Jen Mertz.  It was a beautiful outdoor ceremony with a barn reception all taking place at the Barn at Greenwood.  The yellow, red and white complimented the Bride’s off-white lace gown and added a pop of color to the wood barn.  And the groom wore a coordinating red vest and tie that helped highlight the red in the bouquet.

Really, I just love flowers and will find any excuse to have them around.  But I do honestly think they can add a wonderful layer of color and texture to any wedding or elopement (and a flower crown never hurts at a portrait session!).

Thank you to Aislinn Kate Photography for this image of the bridesmaids’ bouquets from my wedding day!

I had a winter wedding (end of February) and went for darker flowers.  My bridesmaids wore a peacock blue, so we decided on purples to compliment.  Plus, purple is my favorite color and looked great with my champagne colored gown!
