Hands down peonies are an all time favorite with brides everywhere. And it’s not hard to wonder why-
The fluffy sweet smelling blooms come in the sweetest shades of whites, creams, pinks and reds, and are the perfect flower to add to a bridal bouquet, no matter the style of the wedding. Unfortunately peony season is very short and brides quickly realize that unless their event is in early spring through mid June, chances are this beauty won’t make the cut.
So what is a peony-loving bride to do? Once we break the news about the short peony season, most brides quickly move on to good alternatives and often fall in love with the different options available.
Today, I’m excited to share this stunning June wedding and show off the beauties we all swoon over. And no worries, if you are a bride hoping to find something that looks like peonies, we’re going to follow up with another post with lots of options for you.
In the meantime, enjoy!
This June wedding was a fantastic combination of sweet elegance and simple combinations. The florals we used were requested to look just like the peonies in mom’s garden 🙂 It was no easy task, but the results were perfection. The wonderful couple celebrated their first anniversary this past June, and also welcomed their beautiful little girl into the world. We love to see marriages flourish and families grow! Happy anniversary you two! Blessings. Be sure to head over to Aleksandr Verbetsky Blog for more of their special day and engagement photos.
