Floral Checklist

The sun is shinning, birds are chirping everywhere, those mean grey geese are making their nests in the parking lot of your local Target, and most importantly: FLOWERS ARE BLOOMIN’ !

With spring in full swing, and the flower farms in bloom, let’s talk florals! Over the past few years I have had the chance to photograph a wide range of floral arrangements, everything from silk, fresh, neutral, colorful, large, and quaint. They are some of my favorite details of the day, and it’s even better seeing a bride’s personality in the form of florals! Wether you are going with traditional, minimal, whimsical, or anything in between, this list will help you keep track of all the flower possibilities you might need for your big day!
