Good things are on the way!

Welcome to Bert&Lou Britta Blogs!  I'm in the process of developing some good things for this blog and I can't wait to share them with you!  Check back in soon for a new section of "Real Weddings", where actual weddings are showcased for their details and brides and grooms discuss their special day.  Also in the works are wedding inspiration boards and posts where I discuss wedding trends! In the meantime, check out this amazing art:

This deviates from the "wedding details" theme of this blog, but I couldn't resist posting about artist Makoto Azuma's breathtaking floral photographs.  In a project titled Exbiotanica, last week Azuma and his crew traveled to Black Rock Desert outside Gerlach, Nevada. Azuma’s project began in the dead of night. The team launched two of Azuma’s artworks – a 50-year old pine suspended from a metal frame and an arrangement of flowers – into the stratosphere using a large helium balloon.  What a unique concept, sending gorgeous botanical arrangements into the ends of the atmosphere!  If I love anything, it's a good juxtaposition, and this truly epitomizes it with the colorful, delicate petals of flowers and the stark, unforgiving vastness of space.  Earth and sky unite as trees soar above the clouds.  I was so struck by the immensity of the sky and the simultaneous beauty and disintegration of the plants in these images and just felt I had to share.  Read more about the "Rock Star of the Floral World" here, and check out more of Makoto Azuma's work here
