Roses used in my wedding

Please help me identify this rose. It was used in my wedding bouquet, and I would like to plant them in my yard. My florist wasn't able to help me. Red Rose was the only description listed on her invoice. I don't have much information other than these photos. But if I could even plant something similar, that would be fine. What I particularly liked about these roses were the blooms. They had many, many petals.

Thank you for your help.

Looks like Olympiad.

RE: Roses used in my wedding

I don't believe that florists use Olympiad, but they do own the rights to 'Samantha'. I remember seeing a huge bouquet of 'Samantha' back in the 70's, when it was first introduced by J&P. Your red roses look like that common florist rose. Unfortunately, most florist roses are not commercially available; but you could contact J&P, if you are interested.

Here are some wholesale florist sites, maybe this will help: Eufloria, California Pajarosa, Equiflor - Rio Roses.
