Today, Sarah Winward shows us yet another stunning take on wedding flower ideas. With a restrained palette of muted mauves and pinks with whites and greens, lush, botanical-inspired floral designs, and a minimal table design, this adds up to one of our favorite ways to create an elegant springtime wedding. A bridal bouquet that spills over with lilac, hellebores, and fritillari and accented with silk ribbon is the perfect finishing touch.
Here at Once Wed, we have the opportunity to observe how many wedding professionals, around the world, grow their careers. We love to see wedding vendors take chances, try different things, and ultimately, be rewarded with growth and new talent. One of the things we love the most about watching this happen is that we know, in the end, our brides will also be rewarded by it. That’s why we love to see amazing wedding artists come together to learn together. And for any of our readers today who are also wedding pros and are searching for the right opportunity to grow their talents, be sure to consider The PATH Workshop.
The PATH is a worldwide workshop for wedding creatives. Founded by Fine Art international Photographer D’Arcy Benincosa, it is a true chance to immerse yourself in inspiration and gain wisdom from some of the best people in the industry. The workshops take place in various countries across the globe that are carefully selected for their inspiration and eye opening landscapes and people. Traveling to these places is meant to stretch you, encourage you to take risks, live fully, and experience your world and your creativity on a larger scale. Each person has an affect on the person next to them, and through our awareness in how we can change the world via our businesses, we make the world a better place, a smaller place, a place we understand, and place we love. The world is our home. As Mark Twain says, “Travel is fatal to prejudice.”
