What does the ultimate wedding look like to you? For Sun.Flowers, we naturally envision endless rows of beautiful Sunflowers emanating sunshine as you say your ‘I dos’. With a Sunflower field as your backdrop, these flowers can really do the heavy lifting when it comes to decor, letting simple details add delicate flair, as all eyes are directed toward the happy couple. We came across photographer Caitlin Kellagher of CJK Visuals, and a gorgeous wedding she recently shot in Maryland. Caitlin scouted a Sunflower field in Annapolis that blooms for only a few weeks each year to bring to life this dream wedding celebration.
From CJK Visuals: When I had heard about this incredible sunflower field that blooms for a few weeks every year, I knew I needed to take advantage of it for an incredible styled shoot! These flowers made the perfect backdrop for a transition into fall. Lemon and Lime Event Design did an amazing job designing this “Sunflower and succulents” themed shoot. They brought in b.Willow to create custom mini-terrariums that would later serve as guest cards and a DIY terrarium station. As a favor to the guests, what could be better for a sunflower field wedding than a homemade jar of chocolate covered sunflower seeds!
We kept the colors and decor very natural, with pops of gold and a little bit of crystal to contrast the muted colors of the succulents. Our model, former Miss Maryland, Kasey Staniszewski, was a modern day Pocahontas with her fishtailed braid done by Up Do’s For I Do’s. She couldn’t have looked more beautiful surrounded by all of those sunflowers while wearing her Watters wedding gown.
