Men with Bouquets
So, I have an obvious passion for flowers, and a super soft spot photos of men holding flowers. Honestly, most of the time, it is a groom holding a bouquet for the bride. I love those moments, maybe because I can imagine them couple years down when the wife says, "Hold my purse", and the Husband does, without hesitation or self consciousness.

See, doesn't he look handsome?!
I love this shot because the bouquet and ribbon are actually a perfect complement to her soft flowing dress

But can we also talk about how I would LOVE to see grooms with their own bouquets?! A quick search of the #twogrooms shows a severe lack of bouquets (and ribbon!) on men. I know that it isn't tradition, and that two suits with killer boutonnieres are really so classic and classy, but who is to say that one or two bouquets couldn't also be amazing and bring a little drama and softness to the design of the day. Two brides with bouquets can look beautiful, or one with a bouquet and one with a boutonniere is also lovely, so why can't men have floral fun too?

If you and/or your groom carried flowers, I would love to see photos! If you need advice on how to use ribbon on a bouquet, or in any other way for your wedding, just reach out.
