Love in Bloom
Sapphire and Lace Design
A bride’s bouquet is essentially and extension of the dress, another element to showcase the bride’s style. Historically, the purpose of flowers, spices, and herbs at a wedding were three-fold. First, they were thought to ward off evil spirits. Second, wearing or carrying floral arrangements increased fertility. And finally, flowers and spices helped to mask …ahem… “unpleasant odors” (thank heavens for deodorant and showers). Today, we may have different motives for adding florals to our weddings but they are still just as vital.
As a wedding photographer I take numerous shots of the bride and bridesmaid’s bouquets, flowers dressing the chapel aisles or outdoor pavilions during the ceremony, flowers on the cake, as well as centerpieces, boutonnières and more! Accenting your color scheme, personal style and wedding theme, florals can bring any event to life—especially a wedding. My goal is to capture these images with such brilliance you’ll be reminded of each detail—down to the very scent of—your floral designs.
Sapphire and Lace Design is our featured vendor today. They are a sister-run organization offering floral design, event styling, and A la Carte rentals for your big day. Working with Julie and Bethany is like working with girl friends that can anticipate your thoughts! They pride themselves on being intuitive and really listening to their clients. Their goal is to see your face “light up” as you see your collaborative designs come to life. Julie and Bethany won’t make you feel rushed. They welcome the opportunity to brainstorm and share ideas for months before your actual wedding. They invite you to come to their cottage—their design space—for a consultation and a friendly cup of tea.
Sapphire and Lace’s website is worth perusing. Their detailed portfolio gives you a beautiful visual of the varied styles available. From Bohemian to rustic to industrial, S & L has you covered. Don’t let your choice of florist be an afterthought. It is a huge part of the ambiance and the overall feel of your wedding day.
I can highly recommend Sapphire and Lace and would love the chance to include their gorgeous designs in your wedding photos. Give me a call and we can discuss your personal style and options for your big day!
