Dreaming of Flower Crowns and Love

Flower crowns and more often crowns of greenery have been part of history since they were used in Ancient Greece to honor and show respect to the Greek Gods. They were also used as an award for victors to showcase their achievement. Flower crowns have consistently evolved throughout history. Today, they're oftentimes worn at music festivals and weddings. It's a trend to see brides and flower girls walking down the aisle doting a beautiful floral crown.

Vicky & Doug

When Geneva Walker | Kite & String Photography reached out to design a floral crown for Vicky & Doug's engagement photos, I was beyond excited. They had their photos taken at The Morton Arboretum, which is a beautiful place to experience nature, hike, take engagement photos, and more! I only briefly met these two and they were nothing but nice and so excited. Based on their photos, these two are so in love. Love is why I do what I do. I love working with people to celebrate one of the biggest days of their lives. 


As a florist, I get a little too excited when I get to design with some of my favorites. That list includes white Majolica roses, ranunculus, and wax flower. This combination are what dreams are made of. The wax flower is a unique small filler that offers a beautiful but muted color and texture. I love when Majolica roses open. They have the sweetest deep golden center. And ranunculus, need I say more? (Also, I know you're not supposed to start a sentence with "and.")

Let's adorn the world with flower crowns, ok? If you're getting married, let's talk about you and your fiancé and your wedding day. Learn more about Jill Christine Studio's floral design services here.
