The Romance of Roses

Rose boquet

When a bride is choosing her flowers, it can be a bit overwhelming. I mean, there really aren’t any flowers that are not beautiful, right? (maybe we should do an ugly flower contest to see who can find one)

Anyway, I have always had an affinity for roses. After all, they are a symbol of love. I also have a brother that is an avid rose grower and aficionado, who grows the most amazing roses. Just walking around collecting for a bouquet, flower crown, or vase full of roses will make your senses go crazy! All of the different smells and color pallets…pure heaven.

I recently did a photo shoot of my daughter in a vintage flower girl dress that I wore at her age when I was in a neighbor’s wedding. We took the photos in my brother’s rose garden. I made a small bouquet out of miniature roses and small rose buds from the leftover roses of her flower crown. The colors, texture, and fragrance that roses emit is a very simple but wonderful pleasure!

Stay tuned for my “flower girl” photos in an upcoming blog!
