Rose petals, you can’t leave them on the ground… most of the time you have to scoop them up and toss them in the air… it might be the little kid in all of us. PJ and Leanne were no exception. Earlier in the day, these had been a carefully sculpted carpet of roses leading the way to the alter at Abigail’s Garden. It was lovely and maybe more so because it only lasted a little while… the pattern was scattered and bruised by the bridal party’s passage.
Fast forward a couple of hours… dinner was winding down on the hill above us but we had a few minutes of gorgeous light to play in before they had to go back to the crowd… the first thing PJ did was shower his new bride in rose petals. They were both a little giddy from a day well done and it took a few minutes to get down to the business of romantic portraits… although, truth be told, the flower showers and the laughing faces were my favorites.
Crystal Lillies did all of the lovely flowers for the day but the carpet was special and it was fun to watch it become part of the play. ;0)
