The beautifully romantic cabbage rose has become quite the trend in wedding flowers this year. Strikingly similar to the look of the peony, the cabbage rose boasts a much lower price tag. This rose is widely cultivated for its soft, sweet fragrance and it is commercially harvested for the production of rose oil. Making appearances in so many different colors and sizes, this gorgeous flower is fitting for any style wedding.

One of my favorite moments of a wedding day is the first look. The images below are terrific examples of how photographers have captured of the grooms reaction to his bride. Of course there are many adorable first looks focusing on the brides reaction, which is great too – I feel that it’s more about seeing the  grooms reaction to the brides overall look for the first time. Most of the time the bride picks the grooms outfit anyway – so there no surprise there! What do you think??
