Floral Moments on Film
Sometimes it’s best to set aside the bridal blogs and search for inspiration in anther medium. Today, we take a look at six films that are sure to jump-start your floral imagination…

The Great Gatsby
When we asked our Creative Director, Lindsay Saltz, what inspiration she draws from cinema, Great Gatsby came to mind immediately. “After that movie was made, brides were crazy for the ‘Gatsby-themed’ wedding and we drew a lot of inspiration pics from this scene. It’s just an abundance of beautiful flowers and the way they did it was pure perfection. I personally don’t love orchids but that scene made me want to!”
