EMILIE BRIDALS

Emilie’s wedding is tomorrow (Halloween!) so I’m posting the photos from her beautiful bridal session. Her blush pink dress is to die for. Especially with all of those fall leaves around it! I am so excited for you all to see photos from tomorrow because we are doing even darker orange flowers to give it more of a Halloween vibe. I mean, you kind of have to when you are getting married on Halloween, right?

BLACK BRIDALS

YOU GUYS. I just keep getting the opportunity to work with the most amazing vendors. This shoot was no different. The Halloween vibe we have going on is incredible and I just love how everything came together with the lighting & scenery, the black dress, the makeup, and of course THE FLOWERS. Go ahead and drool as you look through all of these photos.

ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS

A lot of brides have been requesting artificial flowers instead of real flowers for their weddings. Artificial can sometimes be more affordable, but that shouldn’t be your reasoning for choosing it. Depending on the type of flowers, the season, etc. you can occasionally get better deals on a natural flower instead of its artificial counterpart. Whether you are doing artificial or real flowers, you can spend a fortune or do it on a budget. That is up to you! So when you set price aside, there are still a lot of reasons why brides are choosing fake over real.

  1. You can keep your bouquet forever
  2. You can get them as far in advance as you would like, which will reduce stress on the wedding day
  3. You can have flowers that may not be in season
  4. Your flowers won’t wilt throughout the day
  5. They are lightweight and easier to care for (no water!)
  6. You don’t have to worry about any allergies to certain flowers
  7. You can repurpose any of the flowers afterwards (centerpieces for your home, etc)

When you first think of artificial flowers your mind might immediately go to dollar store/cheap looking flowers but there are a lot of very realistic looking flowers out there. Your arrangements can still look incredible if you choose to go the artificial flower route!

ELLIE BRIDALS

Mostly greenery with a few white flowers has been one of the most popular requests for bridal bouquets this year. I was so happy with how this one turned out and even more happy with how beautiful the pictures of it are!
