Summer Wedding Bouquet

Summer Wedding Colors Bouquet

This bouquet says “garden” and “summer wedding” faster than you could pronounce the words. Full yellow and peach garden roses and matching ranunculus and celosia mingle with scented geranium, mint, jasmine, and buds from the butterfly bush. And what do you think about the crescent shape? It the perfect mix of summer wedding colors in my opinion.

A Fall Wedding at Blue Lake Ranch


It’s just starting to feel like fall here in Atlanta, so I can’t think of a better way to kick off the week than with this beautiful, fall wedding all the way from Blue Lake Ranch in Durango, Colorado. Just by looking at the photos, you can tell this couple is so sweet and have such a tender love. As the photographer said, “Chase and Amy’s ceremony was so genuine, and their love for each other is so apparent that we even teared up a little at their ceremony! Nothing in the world photographs so beautifully than a truly happy face.” And how about the bride’s breathtaking lace back dress? The delicate lace is so intricate and personal and filled with the most beautiful details. Be sure to visit our real weddings gallery for more images from this delicate lace outdoor wedding.
