weddings ~ an avenue of artistry

Labor Day weekend ushers in the end of summer, bringing the new school year and a rush of weddings squeezed into the last warm, vacation
plenty days of the year.

my facebook feed is filled with photos of joyous bridesmaids, adorable children in formal wear, parties lit with strands of lights and young couples in love. it seems as if everyday there is a new engagement announcement or a wedding celebrated. all of the hullaballo around getting hitched reminds me of gowns, photographers, seating arrangements, planners and a whole slew of other things that have come to define these celebrations.

it is amazing how much creative energy goes into a couples special day. every little detail of a wedding is thought about. even people who don’t consider themselves to be creative stretch their imaginations and budgets to create an event to communicate a style, a taste, a feeling of two lives combining .

one of the most ubiquitous aspects of a wedding, are the flowers. the bouquets held by all bridal party members, the boutonnieres, the table centerpieces, flowers that line the isle ……. the flowers are often what you notice first when you walk into a ceremony or reception. and i would wager, it is one of the things remembered most at home in your undergarments thinking about what a fun was had and how beautiful everything was. but, i don’t know that many people think about how the flowers transform from flower and leaves on stems to mini-moveable-impermanent pieces of art. arranging flowers is an art. a true artists trade.

i had the pleasure of helping Daisy at Daisy Rose Floral Design to help prep for one of her larger weddings. here are some of the shots of the flowers, the little candle holders that transformed into mini vases, and of course her mascot Cooper (such a stunner).

all of these different bunches of flowers were turned into flower arrangements to create ambiance and add beauty to a wedding.  here are some images of the bouquets all done. (photo credit Michelle Walker Photography, wedding planner Melanie King of Dreamers and Heroes)

looks magical really.

how did creativity impact your wedding or your experience at a wedding?

thanks for reading!
