Wedding Flowers in the…Growing

This past weekend I decided I needed to get my little succulents out on the porch for the prime growing season! After getting engaged last year, I quickly started accumulating little succulent plants. It all started when my fiance and I were on our Sunday night walk. We strolled past a house in our neighborhood that had  succulent plants for sale in the front yard. Sitting next to a huge beautiful jade plant was a little  kiwi succulent (green with pink tips).  I slipped the 50 cents in the mail slot on the door and we walked home while I chatted all about the grand plans for my kiwi succulent in my hand. Soon after that night the gathering, splitting and growing of succulents soon took over our porch. Due to the unique shapes and not typical wedding flowers I had in mind, my fiance was all for the succulent farm to begin.

My first trip of the season to the local nursery Leitner’s, I saw these beautiful “Living Art” arrangement and needed to capture the beauty.

If you are wondering “what could you do with those cactus looking plants for a wedding” … Here are some cute succulent wedding images for inspiration!
