Part II: Wedding Bouquets

You can call Pinterest an addiction but I like to refer to it as research :)  I always thought it would be so fun to be a florist.  Would you not love to be surrounded by gorgeous blooms all day long?

I remember when I was planning my wedding and you could not pry me from the computer. I was constantly searching and searching for the perfect bouquet, boutonniere, centerpieces etc.  Sometimes, I would just find one type of flower or a particular shade of color that would be exactly what I was looking for.  So, my hopes in sharing Part II of Wedding Bouquets (Don't miss Part I!) is that they'll be that perfect bit of inspiration that has been the missing link to your wedding day inspiration board...

Katy + Jason

Ashley of Live. Laugh. PHOTOGRAPH sent over this perfectly charming Southern wedding, complete with cowboys boots and live country music...Texas style!  The couple, Katy + Jason, were wed June 11, 2011 just outside of Dallas at Loma Linda in beautiful Rockett, Texas.  Doesn't Katy just look flawless in her strapless gown, pearls and cowboy boots?  I love it.  The rustic venue allowed for a touching outdoor ceremony under the trees.  After, the guest made their way to the reception where the dined on Randy's BBQ's signature cuisine and later indulged in their choice of two fabulous desserts by Dallas Affaires Cake Co.  To top of the evening, the guests danced the night away to the tunes of Chad McBride and The Drifters
All in all, I'd have to say it was a perfect Texas Wedding...

Peach Chic

I've been developing quite a fancy for the color peach recently, especially when it's used in a  Spring or Summer Wedding.  It's such a soft, sophisticated color and it works well in a classic Lowcountry  Wedding...and I'm really loving that chic floral arrangement and understated cake!

Jordyn + Joe

  When Carolina Studios photographer, Gillian Reinhardt sent over this Myrtle Beach wedding, I couldn't get over how much fun everyone seemed to have. It looked like such a good time!  This past May, Jordyn, a stunning blonde, donned two separate gowns as she wed her handsome husband, Joe, in this perfect Lowcountry affair. 

The couple said 'I do' at First Presbyterian Church and then moved the party (and boy do I mean par-tay!) to a Palmetto Properties' private residence where the guests were treated to a gorgeous tented reception under the Carolina sky.  By leaving the details to their trusted team of vendors, the sweet couple was able to enjoy every moment celebrating with their friends and family. Wedding planner, Sara Barnhill of Stunning & Brilliant Events, executed a beautifully detailed Kelly green wedding complete with lavish  flowers by Callas Florist and a darling cake by Cake Creations by Melanie.   The band, N'Tranze kept everybody up and out of their seats which, not only made for some truly entertaining pictures, but one heck of an evening.  Luckily, Carolina Studios was on hand to capture it all...

This one's my favorite....

Brittany + Skylar

I always enjoy when couples include their pups in the engagement photos.  My two boys are like my kids and I really regret not having them join us...even though I'm pretty sure they would not have been half as well behaved as these two sweethearts.  But luckily for all of us, Brittany + Skylar just had to include theirs.  Our new friend, Pensacola based photographer Meg Baisden, spent a gorgeous New Orleans afternoon with the couple as they made their way through City Park.  They were blessed with beautiful weather, perfect light and a nice helping of Spanish moss (which any good Southerner can appreciate).  Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Kristeen + Rob

I'm excited to share Kirsteen + Rob's lovely rustic wedding from Bella Johnson Photography ALL THE WAY from South Surrey, British Columbia!   On this cloudy Canadian afternoon, Kirsteen wore a simple yet classic gown (I love that neckline) that she matched with a pearl necklace and a spring-y bouquet of tulips (I love those, too.).  The couple married in a small ceremony at First United Church, White Rock and followed it up with a gorgeous photo session in Elgin Heritage Park.   Bella captured some truly beautiful and timeless images (I'm a sucker for black + white!).  You can see the pure emotion between Kirsteen + Rob.  They both look so genuinely happy and in love :)
