Stay a moment and breathe in the flowers

As the closest place I've been traveling to lately is the local flower shop, I'm sharing my experience with you. An experience which, by the way, is a completely romantic experience to pick out your own flowers for your own event with your significant other, as experienced by Brando and I through our vow renewal. Make sure and pick a wholesale flower shop. Those are the ones to walk through and breathe in the air, as well as make your own arrangements as they, understandably, won't and don't make them for you.

I could absolutely spend all day amongst flowers. These are photos from Austin Flower Company of options for a wedding.

 Artichokes - love that artichokes are a flower we eat regularly

 Calla lilies
 Mini calla lillies
 Scabiosa - flowers have the strangest names sometimes


 Eucalyptus leaves



Can you guess what color scheme the wedding is going to be?

I love love love the wholesale flower shop by us. I'm a big fan of flowers anyways and enjoy getting creative to do them myself (have done for other weddings but not my own). We used hydrangeas for our wedding and loved them! Thanks for sharing - it truly is a great experience walking through those places! :)

Artichokes are flowers? What? You learn something new everyday.

I love flowers, so this place would be like a slice of heaven for me. I don't think I'd ever want to leave!

Linda - Aren't hydrangeas gorgeous? I love how only two or three stems will overflow a vase or make a full bouquet.

Teagan - Peonies are one of my favorites! Given I'm not into roses that much as I received too many rose related things growing up, peonies are close but different enough for me to still love!

AnEarly30 - Aw, I'm so glad you enjoyed so much! I would LOVE to see photos of the weddings you did - how FUN!!

Meagan - Aren't mini calla lillies fantastic? I almost did them for our vow renewal, but couldn't find the color I truly loved and ended up going the stargazer lily route instead.

A Fabulous Life - The scabiosas are so dainty! They remind me of a softer, more delicate version of anemones - another fun name I discovered while perusing online galleries.

Pink Sun Drops said...

Anna - Wow, I'd never heard of garden roses. They look so much like peonies - I love them! What a great alternative, if need be.

Melissa - Isn't that awesome?! I first learned that about two or three years ago, when somebody told me we actually eat the petals. It makes sense when I stopped and thought about it, but still, crazy, right?

Sonya - You should see if there is one near where you live - and then make sure someone else is picking up the kids from school ;) .

Cayman - We already renewed our vows last year!! Check out the renewal photos and our vows here, our renewalmoon here, and more vow renewal photos here and <a href=">here</a>.
