{#121} amaryllis

did anyone guess amaryllis as the next bloom? if you did {ding ding} your correct!

aren’t amaryllis such an elegant and romantic bloom? i just love the deep crimson color of this specific hybrid. it’s warm and rich and perfect for a rustic winter wedding. keeping the presentation of these blooms simple is key...a simple glass vase will allow the bulbs and dirt to show and will add personality to your table along side these gorgeous stacked old leather back books.  amaryllis also has quite a legend behind them...a young shepherdess wanted the attention of her true love so she pierced her own heart to create the red flower. whoa!  

{colors} crimson, brown leather, taupe and black
{photos} amaryllis {martha stewart} boots {eva lindh} dress {this is glamorous} stacked books and bride {from me to you}
