Trends come and go, styles are ever changing. But one thing that seems to never alter for weddings is the role of the bouquet. Real flowers, not-so-real flowers, DIY or totally “tricked-out”, extravagant jewels or simple elegance. Over the years of capturing weddings, we’ve come to realize that a bride’s bouquet also holds special powers – it can make guests swoon over it, and also make the most dapper of grooms look even better. So much so that we make a portrait of it all on its own! Customize it with special meaning – integrating “something borrowed” from a beloved family member, or sprinkle with a tribute to loved ones no longer with us.
