Red Bouquets from {Limn & Lovely}

We just recently were featured over at Limn & Lovely for one of our dramatic red bouquets and had to share this little post! Thank you Limn & Lovely for featuring us among such talented artists!! Read on for their expertise on a beautiful trend happening in our little wedding world!

{From Limn & Lovely} Although brides tend to shy away from the boldness of red, we’re starting to see a red color trend emerge in the wedding world, and we happen to find it rather enthralling. Red may seem like a non-traditional choice, but it is the traditional wedding color in many Eastern cultures, where it symbolizes good luck and happiness, and it even has a place in the history of  the American wedding, as brides during the American Revolution often donned red gowns as a show of patriotism. In tribute to this fiery color, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite beguiling bouquets that incorporate red florals, from amaryllis, to king proteas, to Red Charm peonies (our personal favorite). As you can see, red doesn’t have to be relegated to fall or winter bouquets, and red florals can take on many different moods, from Rococo to rustic.

Erin and Ben’s San Juan Capistrano private estate wedding was such a beautiful event! Erin’s grandfather’s estate, perched on a hilltop avocado orchard overlooking Orange County and the ocean, was the perfect backdrop for their big day, there is something so special about getting married at home. Erin is one of the most sweet and thoughtful and HAPPIEST brides I have ever met! A pure joy to work with every step of the way! Thank you to Acres of Hope Photography for these gorgeous images that let us relive the day once more!
