You may recall that I was completely bummed when I discovered that the church wouldn’t allow flower petals to line the aisle or be thrown by guests after the ceremony. There went one of my top romantic visions for our day.
Or so I thought.
As it turns out, I underestimated Alex’s creativity and foresight. Try if you can to imagine my sheer and utter delight when he showed up on our wedding day toting – what else? – a bag of flower petals!
Granted, these were silk, and there weren’t as many as I’d have brought in had I been allowed to go all out. But I didn’t care! They were petals nonetheless, were there on my wedding day, and had a light pink shade that even matched up with some of the accent colors in my bouquet. Life was good, and I loved the way Alex worked them in throughout the celebration.
My favorite part? He managed to snap a couple shots during the ceremony of petals scattered in the aisle. Take that, church rules!
And of course, the evening wouldn’t have been complete without a few shots of the bride herself in a shower of flowers.
Did your photographer surprise you by showing up with props or having creative ideas you never would have expected? Do you plan to use flower petals on your wedding day?
