Life evolving behind the lens

The Wedding Industrial Complex

So I was wandering around Nicolett Island Pavilion tody and stumbled across this. Keep in mind the pavilion hosts lot of private events, and that includes weddings. No matter the event (but especially weddings), this sight breaks my heart.

roses in the trash

more roses left to rot

roses that fell out of the dumpster

more flora in the trash

This makes me kind of angry and engenders even more contempt for the wedding industrial complex. Stuff like this is why I’m having a flower-free wedding. If you are having flowers at your wedding, please look into having them composted or otherwise disposed in a more environmentally sound manner.
