Summer

Roses are a sturdy, versatile bloom that comes in hundreds of colors.

August: Sunflower

Sunflowers are the bright and beautiful blooms that we all know and love. They are a quintessential summer flower and will spark joy at your wedding ceremony. Keep in mind, sunflowers are not limited to just a yellow color palette! They also come in deep burgundies and browns, perfect if you want your floral palette to lean more autumnal.

Fall
