It is wedding season and that means there is no shortage of glorious flowered arrangements adding a splash of color to our brides’ special day. For those avid floral enthusiasts out there, everyday is a holiday when its warm and life is in full bloom. For those of us who are maybe not quite as knowledgeable on botanical trends, you may not be aware that the month of June not only brings sunburn and fresh strawberries, but it is also officially National Rose Month.
From Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet to ABC’s The Bachelor, the rose has had long time symbolic significance of love and romance. In 1986 President Reagan even named the rose the National Floral Emblem of the United States making the love of roses simply, presidential. Needless to say, the rose has maintained a reputation for beauty and tradition that is unparalleled by any other flower.
Now that we have had our history lesson for the day, it is no surprise that many brides-to-be find themselves seeing things through rose-colored glasses. A quick glance at some of our most recent weddings reinforces that there is always room for a budding rose in the intricate details of a wedding.
This River House bride took my breath away with her charming photos. From the stunning detail on her gown to the simply perfect bouquet, you truly can’t go wrong with a rose.
Another PPHG bride celebrated her special day at The American Theater, and used these beautiful roses in a very special way to remember loved ones.
At the William Aiken House, this beautiful bride added a little drama to her bouquet by opting for an entire aisle of rose petals in lieu of a traditional sprinkling. What a perfect accent to her beautiful gown!
And for those of you who enjoy a sweeter take of a well placed rose bud, you will love this elegant cake by PPHG’s own pastry Chef Susie Ieronemo.
As you can see, when it comes to weddings, we really don’t believe in the thorny side of these beautiful flowers. And to be honest, a rose by any other name might not smell as sweet.
