Butera the Florist – “Behind the Scenes”

Happy Tuesday everyone!! I hope you all are having an awesome day! As I look back at our Styled Bridal Shoot photos, my jaw drops a little bit more each time I view the amazing, one-of-a-kind bouquets and arrangements Vince Butera created for us at Butera the Florist. From working together to create three unique themes, colors and concepts, to having the honor of photographing him work behind the scenes in preparation of our bridal shoot – I am still SO amazed by Vince’s talent! As I am counting down the final 3 weeks until wedding season kicks off for Emerald Stone Photography, I just had to share a few more images from our amazing behind the scenes shoot with Vince that really brings his outstanding talent to life! BRIDES – BUTERA IS THE FLORIST TO BOOK FOR YOUR WEDDING!!!! 🙂 They have been in business for over 35 years, keep up with the latest wedding trends, have won several awards, receive phenomenal reviews and ratings – look no further!! You will be so happy you booked Butera for your special day.
