For the bride is it to a happy sign of prosperity and welcome.

Osmanthus smells warm and sensual and let me feel the depth thats inside the flower thats closed for so long until it blooms. It inspired me really much to this photoshoot - and let me think: Why we are that impatient with ourselves so often? Why do we wanna reach success immediately while the nature shows us every single day that every flower has its own time to bloom?!
