When I was getting married, I told my mom I only had a few request. One of those request included a beautiful wedding bouquet with real flowers.
After you see some of my favorite bouquets I have shot at weddings, you will understand my obsession with beautiful blooms. (Spoiler-- if you make it to the bottom you can see my bridal bouquet made by the fabulous Kimber.)
I mentioned last week that one of my favorite things on wedding days is the cake (for some obvious and not so obvious reasonings.) Another favorite is the flowers.
I have always been a flower power kind of gal, but I absolutely love seeing what the bride has decided on for her flowers. I think it is such a fun representation of her personality coming through in a different medium. When I first get a glance at my brides flower picks, I automatically think "Oh, that looks just like you" -- and that is a feeling I love because I strive to get to know my brides and hope we are more friends than just her "photographer!"
I have shot many weddings in my day, but below are a few of my favorites. Unfortunately there were a few more that I was thinking of, but I couldn't find the hard drive with those photos (i.e. Kelly Jensen and her white roses and cotton bouquet! Sad!)
Comment below with your favorite!
And, as promised here is my beautiful bouquet! I am still a fan!
I wanted a lot of texture and semi-large! I also wanted various colors and not stick specifically with my color pallet in my flowers. Mission accomplished!
