I always get to where I'm going by walking away from where I have been. -Winnie the Pooh
If you're anything like me, then the urge to wander is strong. There's a gaping hole in my heart that only a little wanderlust can fill. New places, new scenes, new food, and new faces make my heart happy, especially when it's a beautiful Utah wedding or bridal session happening in Zion National Park.
The majestic Utah mountain scenery makes for the most epic wedding backdrops! And there's just something about those red rocks that make a wedding dress really pop. Stops my heart every time.
I feel like no matter how many times I come down here I never see the same thing twice. It's the perfect place to walk away from everything I've been hanging onto, and find something new. One of my goals for this bouquet was to branch out a little and pick a flower I don't normally work with. That way, instead of hanging onto my good ole' standbyes, I could stretch a little.
I considered lots of different flowers, and ultimately ended up selecting mini gerbera daisies. These were super popular circa 2000 and then haven't been seen since, so naturally I was dying to see if there was a way to update the gerbera daisy into something that fit the trend of loose, asymmetrical bouquets with neutral tones.
I feel like the mini gerb was the perfect statement piece for my Utah bride! It's creamy white color is soft and romantic, but it's texture gives it that 'WOW' factor. I paired it with dried protea and hypericum berry, and then fresh quicksand roses, stock, and scabiosa pods. And because the white gerbera daisy bridal bouquet is designed in a grouping to one side, it draws the eye off to the right and adds to the dimension of an asymmetrical wedding bouquet.
So take some time today to wander away from where you've been and start exploring where you want to be! You many find some fresh, new inspiration!
