You’re in for a real treat today, ladies and gents. Kelly Perry of Philosophy Flowers decided to team up with Sara Logan Photography to give us a behind-the-scenes peek at what goes into one of her wild + beautiful arrangements. It’s pretty amazing to see how she actually forages some of her foliage in the North Carolina woods! We’ll let Kelly take it from here…

My favorite bouquets always start with a walk in the woods and end at a local flower farm. It’s there that I find ingredients that are not only unique and special—like my brides—but that also speak to the present moment. Here is a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into a creating a hand-tied bridal bouquet, and the ingredients to assemble it. I hope it inspires you as you plan your wedding!

We love us a good ranch wedding. They’re rustic and cozy, with a kind of down-to-earth goodness you just can’t find in a ballroom or on a beach (or almost anywhere else for that matter). Laurel + Frank’s wedding totally has that homegrown feel doesn’t it? From the warm, auburn florals to the mismatched bud vases on every table. Oh, and did we mention that their venue, The Ranch at Bandy Canyon, offered cabins where the wedding party all stayed the night? Fun! We’re sure glad Joielala was there to capture it all on camera…

From the bride… We wanted everyone to feel that they were a part of our day. So at the end of our first dance, we had the DJ ask all our guests to the dance floor so we could all celebrate together. Our bridal party and families mean the world to us, but we wanted each one of our guests to feel special.

What a sweet + thoughtful sentiment! Congrats you two!

- Real foil is hand-pressed onto the cards, leaving an elegant silver or gold leaf finish to create a truly unique Save the Date.

- Foil-pressed Save the Dates are available in both photo and non-photo options.
