For weddings, they often paint designs based off of bridal bouquets, wedding invites, or even a favorite china tea set. Any little wedding detail can serve as inspiration.

Blossoming almond orchards wedding inspiration

Hello, beautiful blossoms! This shoot that photographers Ginny of Retrospect Images + Brooke Beasley envisioned + whipped up basically encapsulates the beauty of a romantic spring wedding, from the sweet seasonal blooms of California almond orchards to the way various shades of pink complement the greenery around them. What’s not to swoon over here?

Ginny says, We were inspired by the blossoming almond orchards whose lush blooms are just as fleeting as they are beautiful. Lasting for only a few weeks, these magnificent trees blossom and create the most magical rows of dreamy blooms.

This bouquet! Le sigh. Susan of Three Sisters Flowers mixed in soft pastels with darker accents and cascading greenery. She created two different bouquets for separate takes on the concept.

For a bride who loves all the romance of spring, the Carina Corset & Ahsan Skirt from BHLDN sure seem like a pretty fitting choice!

Great work team! Such beautiful Almond trees.

Spring bridal bouquet

Of course a bridal shower is always about *you guessed it* the bride, but it’s easy to fall into the food-games-gifts tradition (though, don’t get us wrong, that’s a fantastic trio too). But Fleurie Flower Studio + Nikki Martinez Photography broke the mold a bit when they opted for a few unexpected elements, like a letter from the groom and an event design based off of colorful paletas.

Wouldn’t it be fun to bring in a secret letter from the groom-to-be for the bride to read? Such a special little surprise.

And remember the festive paletas we posted about on Monday? Clearly we gotta get our hands on some.

The bride got to pose for some romantic portraits too… A must if you have someone photographing the event or a creative gal pal or two.

Nikki says, The bride is actually newlywed, but this shoot was just focused on her and all the fun details! My favorite memory of the day was having the bride run back and forth in the open yard. We all got a good laugh out of it, and it just made for so much fun! It was such a great day.
