Last May, I had the extreme fortune of attending a former co-worker and forever friend’s (wad up, Keah!) wedding. Set amidst the rolling hills of Stoney Creek Farms in Noblesville, IN, the wedding was a picturesque scene of rustic charm and down on the farm fun. After working with Keah for several years, there was no doubt in my mind that:
A) she’d make a devastatingly drop dead GORGEOUS bride, and
B) her wedding setting would be nothing short of amaze with a side of awesome-sauce.
And as suspected, I was correct on both accounts:
Evidential Support for A:
Evidential Support for B:
See what I mean? Beautiful bride. Beautiful local.
One of the things that I think really stood out, which is almost paradoxical as the thing that did the standing almost did so through its subtlety (you heard me, haha!) – was all the baby’s breath details! Baby’s breath – to me – is not a standout bloom. I mean, let’s just call a spade, a spade here, people. It’s not a rose or a ranunculus. It doesn’t have the large bloom of the peony or the coloring of the hydrangea. Quite the opposite, in fact.
Baby’s breath, by nature, is a colorless wisp, and yet, when you see all clustered together, it really has a dramatic effect. And it’s one of those floral trends I continued to notice throughout the past year in weddings – both attended and researched. And it’s not hard to see why…
Both simple and sweet, the delicate flower offers a softness that I would say is unmatched by most other contenders. Baby’s breath provides a kind a whimsy, while still remaining charmingly rustic. It’s also extremely versatile. It looks just as good at a high end, over the top extravaganza as it does decorating the local of drive-in’s and barns. Check out below and see what I mean :)
