For years Flower Girls have had their job of tossing rose petals on the ground ahead of the bride. Some would, some wouldn’t, some would and then pick them up, or the ring bearer would and in all of these situations, they were adorable. For this shoot, we explored alternatives. In some places, you aren’t allowed to toss petals and even when you are, it’s awesome to have some options to express yourself and have everyone in your party feel comfortable.
For this shoot, I was able to collaborate with the incredible Beth Insalaco. Our models were Nichole and Phebe Falavolito. We also got to play with the fabric roses and accessories from BelleRoseDesigns.
Part 1: For those who won’t throw:
For the child you want in your wedding but are unsure if stage fright will take over, there are options:
Part two: For those who may or may not throw:
Just be sure you know the rules of the venue!
Phebe modeled some other Belle Rose Designs accessories as well:
Since it was a styled shoot and to show that these options can be worked into the bigger picture as well, here’s a few to show how you can continue with the theme.
For the palette, I went mostly natural with linen, light brown, soft champagne, and light pink colors. Ended up with two basic themes: 1. Flowers, seeds, and growth (growing together). 2. Candy (sweet love).
At the end of the day, the important thing is remembering that children are not super predictable and that’s what makes them so cute. If they don’t do what they did beautifully in rehearsal, don’t cringe. It’ll probably be many peoples favorite little moment other than seeing you come together forever.
To close, some super cute pictures!
Lots of Love,
