Amazing Aisle

I'm in love with this aisle, of course this photograph magnifies it's beauty. I picture this aisle in a backyard garden wedding, with the ceremony taking place just as the sun sets. The hurricanes would be glowing as the guests left, so romantic.

I cannot even begin to imagine how many petals it took to create this. I had a bride that wanted this look and with 300 roses it didn't even come close to being this long or this thick. Amazing.

One of my favorite outdoor wedding details is the aisle. There are so many ways to make it unique and beautiful. Here are a few ideas...

Or something as simple as an aisle runner with petals scattered.

My only caution when thinking of using flower petals is to keep in mind your venue and if it is a windy location. The venue may not allow you to use petals due to the clean up. If it is a windy day you may not get the exact look you are going for or the petals won't be able to be placed until just before you walk the aisle.
