A Flower Grower's Sentiment Behind Wedding Flowers

If you’ve followed me for any amount of time on Instagram, you know I am SO in love with gardening. If I could simply host weddings in my backyard garden, where brides can literally surround themselves with gorgeous growing flowers, I’d be in heaven. And yes, that is the plan for the future of my little business so stay tuned.

I simply don’t believe anything beats growing a flower from seed, nurturing and watching it grow. So to then have the honor of cutting it from the garden, designing a bouquet and sharing it with your bride, that is priceless. That nurturing, intentional image is so beautiful to me, just as a marriage is beautiful. There is so much thought and nurturing of a relationship that takes place to get to the point of marriage and to me, your flowers, your whole celebration, should tell THAT story. The story of you, your love and how this marriage came to be. The intentional decisions that brought you to this point. The love and nourishment you gave to one another and to your relationship, and the patience you built learning to trust and lean on one another.

Maybe to some, flowers are just flowers, another wedding day detail to check off. But flowers represent so much more, ESPECIALLY on a wedding day. Growing flowers takes love, patience, nurturing and intention. Sort of like a marriage. As I continue to grow flowers for my brides, I hope to capture the spirit of these words and pass them on to each of my bride and grooms.

Love. Patience. Nurture. Intention.

Flowers & Photos New Year's Giveaway

Hello, Lovelies!

I’m so excited to announce our first giveaway of 2019! Hoorah!

I’ve always loved nature photography and when my parents bought me my first real camera I filled it with hundreds of images of flowers. I know, totally shocking.

It’s funny how everything comes back around, 20 years later and I’m still taking photos of flowers, probably still hundreds. I LOVE capturing these blooms at a perfect moment in time, it’s more than a pretty picture, it’s capturing a unique emotion that is incapable of being recreated. The photo I chose for this giveaway, From My Hands is very special to me for the emotions it evokes and the time it was created and that’s why I chose to share it with you. I hope one of you enjoys it as much as I have. See below for the giveaway details!
