So I have to share these photos.. yesterday, I enlisted my son’s help in scouting the U of R for Jessica and Michael’s maternity session (coming soon to the blog).. My son HATES to have photos taken of him..hates it with a passion! But he relented to my request and I got a few incredible moments with him. When we discovered that the zanja was filled with water, you should have seen his face light up when I said he could play in the water. Well, you will see.. and I’m sure you’ll know what photo it is!:)And one last thing, yes, he’s pretending to be pregnant in another one of the photos.. we were doing serious research on the light, people!!:)I’m so glad he helped me on this.. its nice to see his face here every once in a great while!:)

Its amazing to see how much he’s grown.. If I’m lucky, I’ll get to take his senior photos. *sigh*

So I have a love affair with bridal bouquets.. I think it started when I was a kid.. my mom took a class in floral design and worked part time with a florist. I would visit her as she was putting together an arrangement and I would sneak a sprig of baby’s breath off the floor. I just loved the delicate little filler flower. Now, its quite common to see mason jars filled with only baby’s breath and I’m so glad to see it get the attention it deserves!

When I got married, nearly 20 years ago, the popular bridal bouquet was tear drop in shape, with a plastic handle and water soaked floral foam. My bouquet was huge and covered the entire front of my dress. It was a combination of real and silk flowers and well.. that was style 20 years ago.. lol.

Today’s bouquets are colorful and textural and sweet and often wrapped with just a simple organza ribbon. I love seeing how floral designers are so creative with color and flower combinations. Hope these posts are inspiring and make you smile! I can’t help but smile when I see a beautiful bouquet!

This lovely bouquet includes blush pink peony and roses, delicate heather and silvery dusty miller..
