So much happening behind the scenes that I am not able to share just yet. So for today, I give you a bouquet of perfect autumn colors.
Ladies from yesterday 💐
Thinking about these Juliet roses and dupioni silk ribbons from a few weeks ago.
All while I wait patiently for my camera to arrive back today from @canonusa ... @fedex gave a 12 hour window for delivery and the package requires a signature. Isn't that hilarious? Maybe I should have set out today to work on dividing dahlia tubers, that would have been a good way to kill time. I'm not really complaining as there are always plenty of projects to work on and it's not like I'd go anywhere near a store on Black Friday.
PS- thank goodness for Christmas movies on the @hallmarkchannel 🎄
Juliet roses are @davidaustinweddingroses and grown by @greenvalleyfloralco.1973 and ribbons from @midori_ribbon

Carnations can be crazy beautiful! Fresh bouquets just hit @goosethemarket ✨
We live in Denver, which by most of the country’s standards, is pretty dang close to the mountains. When we moved here, I remember meeting people who had grown up in Denver and had never been to the mountains that they could see on their horizon line every day. I just couldn’t believe that. “They’re so close! How is that possible?” And they shrugged and said, “You just kind of forget they’re there.” Now, when I’m biking downtown and I round a corner or when I’m photographing a rooftop Denver wedding, I make sure to stop and look and say “I see you. You’re beautiful.” Isn’t that kind of like love? It’s never taking for granted the beauty of the person that you see everyday—it’s never letting them fade into the background of your days. 💙
Welcoming #FloralFriday with this soft yellow bouquet from today’s blog! 🌿🌼 See it all on ElegantWedding.ca!

I just sent off my last wedding of 2017. And what a year it has been! I have been so blessed with the sweetest brides, the most gracious students, a thoughtful and warm community, and all of you! Thank you for a fabulous year full of flowers and joy!

Something borrowed, Something blue, Something old, Something new. I love seeing how these traditions turn into such beautiful memories..... This stunning bouquet by @lambriefloral for my sweet bride @brandi_harvey2 was wrapped with a piece of her mother's wedding dress and pinned with her Greatgrandmothers bird broach!😍.... it's the little details that every bride makes that set her special day apart and make it her very own! What were some of your heirlooms or special details??? I'd love to hear or see them!!😄😍😍 #bridalbouquet#heirloom#mychellelevanphotography
Creating with friends is one of my greatest joys. Sharing ideas and collaborating on big dreams always fills my heart. Like this Fall inspired session I created with @ebbandflowflowers. So many fabulous people coming together to create such magic.
What are you dreaming of and creating? What fills your heart with joy? 💕 #shaunaeteskephotography#bridalshoot#fallbouquet
It has been such an amazing year!!! And we still have 4 more weddings to go!! Thank you to everyone for supporting us along the way!!! How many exclamation points can I use in one post?!!!!!!!!!!! #top9
I introduced y'all to this bouquet + bride (holy smokes is she beautiful!) last month + told you how similar our paths were from NYC to Indiana. I could not adore Ellie more if I tried + I am so excited to have her as a forever client + new friend. Huge thank you to @ivanandlouiseimages for all the beautiful images from this day because without stellar photographers, we wouldn't have the picture perfect memories that we do! 😍
Color palettes don’t need to be limited to two or three colors! Select a range of color or tone and run with it! For her wedding day, Tay chose a range of muted and subdued spring colors to accent the natural setting where her ceremony would take place. The range let for Mother Nature to show off and all of her decor accent the beauty around her! I’m uploading this wedding to portfolios and can’t get over how much I love it!!! #tiptuesday
The great thing about a wedding is there will be a professional photographer. Now, I know couples hire a photographer to get pictures of themselves, but if I’m lucky, the photographer also happens to capture amazing pictures of the flowers, which is no easy task. Blown away by the work of @malorrieannphoto at this October wedding.
Cappuccino, mostly foam with a dash of cinnamon
Have you ever seen a more perfect centerpiece for a November wedding? Me neither 😍 Molly & Matt's wedding at the @oldemillinn is featured on my journal today- link in profile!
Maybe the only reason I survive the winter season is through winter bridal inspiration work like this. One of my favorite winter bouquets from west coast florist @eothen_
Just a little texture that reminds me of all that I love in nature. The living, the dying, and the dead. #collectedonlinescholarship Florals @thepottedpansy

Did you get a chance to look at Cathy & Chris's jaw-dropping gorgeous wedding yet?! Because sooo many favorites were shared on the blog this weekend, and I don't want you to miss out 😉 I couldn't have asked for a sweeter couple to finish out my 2017 weddings with! 😍 ..Even if I am still trying to figure out how it really is the end of the year already?! 😅 Link is in the profile, you know what to do (hint: click!!) PS how did I ever post anything before Instagram added the slider feature?!!
Is there were ever a strong case for red nail polish, this is it ❤️ See more photos from S&J’s fall wedding in our story 👆🏻 Photo @heatherkincaidphoto | floral @toastsantabarbara | gown @jennyyoonyc #laurelandrose
I love the laughing and emotional photos, but there's something about an introspective glance of a bride and twirl. It's the changing of seasons in their life, and a beautiful one at that. 😘

Today a conversation touched a raw nerve and brought to light the tender and delicate within each of us. We never know what others might really be going through beneath all of the perfection on instagram. So let’s be kind. Let’s be accepting. Let’s listen and read and understand with more than just our first glances. Let’s be real with one another and allow that space so needed for raw and tender.
