I have spring fever for sure! Woke up this morning with an idea I couldn’t shake. Needed to blog about some of the most beautiful flowers I got to photograph last year and offer up some ideas for brides planning their 2013 nuptials! Here it goes! Let me know your favorites! But before we dive in, one thing is for sure – 2012’s most popular color was purple. 50 Shades of Purple! 🙂
