It's absolutely true wedding planning season jumpstarted, officially on March 1st with National Wedding Planning Day. Who knew? And just so happens I stumbled upon images of pretty flowers featured over on The Happy Bloom blog. How about good timing, you say? Yep! So, I won't push you, but once you are ready to hop into the floral details of your day, we will be right here waiting with the refreshing inspiration and ideas and this expert curation of beautiful images and wonderful dialogue from Justin & Amanda. Have you seen their images? Friends!! This particular feature is is full of all white peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, gomphresia, cosmos, stars of Bethlehem and foraged blooms from the garden to get you (and me since I am being honest) totally worked up about choosing the elements in your floral recipe. If you've already started you know it is equal parts overwhelming and joyful when it comes to making flower decisions, but if simple, organic and elegant is your style, you'll be SO up for the task once you see these pics of mono-cramatic goodness I am sharing in an excerpt below. But just make sure you see: Recently featured in Volume 1 of Savannah Soiree just as this dynamic photography team intends it.
Recently featured in Volume 1 of Savannah Soiree:
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and we believe that every single moment should be treasured, adored and remembered - from the very beginning. That's why we enlisted our friends at The Happy Bloom to help us bring the Morning Of to life with this dreamy editorial in Savannah Soiree Volume 1.
"There is not a time more precious than the early morning moments on a woman’s wedding day. Everything is quiet. Everything is still. Everything is calm. Those moments before the storm, they are everything.
We truly wanted to incorporate European influence into this shoot and we discovered the most romantic way to do this. Traditionally, Dutch grooms knocked on the door of their bride on the morning of their wedding day to present them with their bouquet. And here they would see their bride. Yes, the very beginning of what we now know in the states as a 'first look'." - Justin & Amanda, Photographers
From Stylist Tristan Needham: When Justin came to me about designing and styling a shoot of a bride on the morning of her wedding, I was immediately interested. We wanted to capture it all: morning sunlight, quiet reflective moments, all of the beautiful elements that you dress yourself in before you even slip into your gown.
