 Once this set of images made it into my inbox I was stunned and couldn't wait to share them!! The mood in which Sara Miller of Sara Elizabeth Photography captured the time-honored story of these lovers is amazing not to mention just plain inspiring. Any bride wanting romanticism on her wedding day will find it in this styled shoot with unexpected pops of color against the distressed beauty of a grand staircase. Says Sara: "Staying true to the original story, here's a lovely shoot focused on a gorgeous theme at Cator Woolford Gardens. Florals, beautiful dresses and a staircase straight out of your dreams, these star-crossed lovers made themselves a happy ending this time."

The beauty of every one of these headpieces is each was custom designed by a florist somewhere in the world. Whether worn in a continuous circlet or sprinkled through your hair, flowers are a hot trend in the bridal arena.   Floral wreaths aren't new to complimenting bridal wear.  Queen Victoria wore a wreath of orange blossoms with a veil of Honiton lace back in the 19th Century when she married Prince Albert. In the 1920s, brides wore a wreath of florals and long flowing veils with shorter dresses.  The trending wave we're seeing now for these spectacular floral accents may have to do with how beautifully this topping-it-all-off accessory goes with Boho as well as styles reminiscent of the 20s-30s era.  Below you'll more than a few options for donning flowers on your wedding day
