Bride-to-be Lauren asked us to create a floral crown for her engagement shoot and we were more than happy to say yes! Flower crowns are wildly popular with chic brides right now. Wearing blooms close to the face brings out every woman’s natural beauty and evokes tradition; adorning hair with fresh flowers, for weddings and festivals, was just as on-trend in ancient Greece and Medieval Europe as it is today.
We got to know Lauren’s lovely sense of style while working on designs for her big day next June. For this engagement session, she envisioned blush roses and shared an inspiration image from a gorgeous French wedding. Instead of standard roses, we suggested delicate, light-pink spray roses, and ethereal baby’s breath. Cool-toned, seeded eucalyptus complimented the intricate, ivory petals of tiny wildflowers, including poetically-named astrantia million stars. Fresh and romantic, the finished crown looked perfect with Lauren’s “lob,” worn in gentle waves.
