lavender roses

Today I had the pleasure of doing my first wedding since having my baby this summer.  It was the perfect wedding to transition back into this again, since the bride only needed one thing: her bouquet.  She was very much a no-nonsense bride, and wanted to keep everything super simple.  No wedding party, no extravagant reception, just the ceremony and dinner with family and friends.

And following her "keep it simple" mantra, her bouquet was simple but beautiful.  It was all lavender roses with a white ribbon wrap and pearls.  Simple, classic, elegant.

I took a quick shot in the flower beds outside the ceremony site waiting to deliver the bouquet.  Especially great since the flowers matched!

And a close up.  I love how intricately detailed roses are.  They have so much texture and depth that even with only roses, this bouquet has so much interest and beauty.
