When planning your wedding don’t underestimate the power of a great florist! As someone who has photographed hundreds of weddings I have seen everything from DIY flowers from paper to big florist budgets. Both can be done well but I must admit, hiring a professional florist is the way to go. They can provide you with much more bouquets and boutonnieres. Have you considered decorating your wedding venue? What about the reception hall?
This year alone I’ve shot at least 20 weddings at Forrest Hills Mountain Resort in Dahlonega, Georgia. Never has their Secret Garden wedding gazebo ever looked as good as it did for a recent fall wedding. The big difference was the attention to detail by Freesia Floral Designs of Lilburn, Georgia. Notice how the Renae’s bouquet colors tie into the floral arrangements on the ground, posts and gazebo header. As a photographer, it is my job to pay attention to details so I recognize the effect these little details have. Most of your wedding guests won’t notice why everything looks so nicely put togther, the little details may escape them. But I assure you, they will be impressed by the overall look of your wedding!
So keep this in mind when planning your wedding….professionals are the pros at making everything top notch and stress free for you. Sure, everyone is on a budget so picking where to cutting corners can be necessary. You can have a beautiful wedding without all of the little details, but for one that is truly over the top beautiful don’t forget the florist.
One final shout out to Marcus and Renae for choosing me to photograph their gorgeous fall wedding in the North Georgia Mountains. It was an honor!
