Spring in the countryside has to be one of the prettiest times of year across the United States. The weather is gorgeous, flowers are in bloom, and country weddings have a special kind of charm. Jody from The Moss & Rose created an enchanting spring countryside editorial, shares her tips and secrets for choosing perfect spring blooms, and it’s all captured beautifully by Korie Lynn Photography.
From Jody of The Moss and Rose – “Spring is an incredible time to source flowers locally in the South and also America-grown flowers from California. Not only are the varieties available during the spring enchantingly unique from other times of the year, but by sourcing from American growers, you’re ensuring you get amazing quality of flowers as well.
In Houston, Texas, we have anemones, ranunculus, larkspur, and narcissus available from growers within an hour of the city. And, we have plenty of incredible navy blue privet berries to be foraged along the roadsides. They add such a unique color and texture to a design! They add depth to a pastel color palette and they anchor a bold color scheme.”
“From California the abundance of varieties is outstanding during the springtime! Besides what we normally associate with spring flowers: tulips, ranunculus, anemones, and daffodils – flowering branches such as quince, pear cherry, and magnolia are primarily available during early spring. Not only do they add height and a decidedly whimsical nature to décor, but quince can be enjoyed for 2 weeks or more after the event. Send a branch home with your guests. It would be an unusually unique wedding favor and way to recycle some of your wedding flowers.
Cymbidium orchids are also in season during February and they are breathtaking! Mixing orchids with traditional springtime flowers adds a layer of elegance without entering into the world of exotically tropical. Plus, the orchids can be enjoyed for weeks after the wedding. Truly a special way to say thanks to the mothers of the bride and groom for all of the work they invested in the wedding.”
