Happy Monday!!!

School started today for my Professor husband which means that hints of Autumn are in the air.  It’s like clockwork-two days ago it was Sunny and 85 and yet today, the first day of school, it’s a crisp 65.  I just adore the weather this time of year.


I have so many glorious shoots to share with you – soon, I promise!  I am preparing several gorgeous weddings, engagement shoots, a few adorable families, and some stunning opera singer promo shoots…  But in the meantime, I have been going bouquet crazy.  I have seen some truly beautiful bouquets of late-some traditional, others innovative, but all of them worth sharing.  Whether you are planning a wedding or a centerpiece I think there is a great deal of inspiration here to make your event even better:


I love a white peony bouquet as much as the next girl:

I don’t even know what make this bouquet so perfect, but I am so obsessed with it that I think I may just bring this photo to a floral designer and say “Can I have a standing appointment to pick up THIS bouquet every Friday?  K, Thanks!”

This Calla-studded stunner from Nina & Brendan’s wedding was one of my faves of the Summer:

Lana (from the soon-to-be-shared wedding of Lana & Jared,) wanted Peonies, but it was a bit late in the season.  Her industrious floral designer thought of substituting Garden Roses which worked perfectly-how gorgeous is this?

I feel like succulent bouquets are everywhere this year, but this one really stood out to me-I think it’s that tiny little pop of orange/peach:

This was my own wedding bouquet-I love sunflowers/wildflowers!

Probably the richest, most Autumnal wedding bouquet I’ve ever seen:

Stay tuned for some great blog posts in the coming days and have a wonderful week!
