carnation bridal session

I’ve often thought that carnations are an underrated flower – somehow they got a bad rap along way. Poppy + Mint Floral Company along with Sonia Savio Photography completely change that perception today and showcase the romantic possibilities and subtle beauties of carnations!

From Poppy + Mint Floral Company – “Throughout history, flowers have had symbolic meaning and carnations are no exception. In Victorian times Floriography, the language of flowers, became a common way to express what one should or could not say in a time of such guarded emotion and convention.

The varying shades of red carnations could convey just how smitten one was or was not with their muse. Deep red carnations put a merciful end to the bashful stuttering of, ‘I feel quite ardently,’ while pink carnations allowed one to say, ‘I feel less ardently.’ A message in flowers is loud and clear…and fragrant!”
