We drove up the mountain just before dawn and arrived as the sun was rising over the wildflowers in Utah's Albion Basin. It was a lovely, serene location for this couple to document their love for each other, and the extremely talented Megan from Vellagreen Photography captured it brilliantly.
I made this nature-inspired bouquet in shades of white, cream, greens and blues and tied it with raw silk, velvet, and a strip of lace ribbon I cut from the lace used on her gorgeous custom dress.
