but one of our favorite weddings, in british columbia, had a better idea for this windswept tradition.
this wedding was on a little wooden bridge over a stream on a mountainside, and the confetti was tossed by two sweet, little blondes (our nieces).
it was organic too — rose petals saved by their mom, a nurse, and a real eco-conscious bride.
we were reminded of her wedding this week, while encountering a bower of blossoms on our daily walk.
we’re fortunate to live in a neighborhood with 20 miles of trails through the forest, and an urban walk under blocks of flowering trees.
it was windy, so the petals were fluttering like confetti all around us. it was gorgeous to see all the pink-white petals in branches above, and a little sad to see them falling to the ground, gathering in small drifts along our walkway.
since we met in a city of spring flowers (washington, d.c.), we’re partial to cherry blossoms. this season reminds us of washington, and the bounty of cherry blossoms around the basin.
when we were dating, we would walk for hours, then sit at the edge of the basin, mesmerized by the cherry blossoms and baby ducklings darting about.
it’s a reminder that the most romantic moments are often found in nature.
